Healed for Life: A Story of Redemption
Hours later, I lay on a hospital bed, growing increasingly anxious and horrified as I imagined what body parts might still be inside of me. The technician stared intently at the screen as she rolled the probe over my abdomen. What is taking so long? She scanned for a few minutes then went to get her supervisor and they scanned some more.
‘Can you tell me what’s going on?’ I asked.
Not knowing about my recent abortion, the nurse replied, ‘The baby is moving so quickly that we can’t get a steady image.’
‘Baby?’, I gasped. ‘What baby?’
She turned the screen toward me so that I could see. There was a deflated gestational sac to the right, and a healthy, intact sac to the left. The scan revealed a 5.3 centimeter fetus, swimming like mad, with a perfectly strong heartbeat… I had been carrying twins.”
In Healed for Life, Cynthia Wenz shares with us the intimate details leading up to and beyond that pivotal, miraculous moment in the hospital: generational brokenness, alcoholism, drugs, statutory rape and sexual promiscuity, two teenage abortions, depression, eating disorders, and two decades of toxic relationships. Through it all, Cynthia learned that, as heartbreaking as a past might be, God radically redeems and wholly heals; and all who have experienced severe pain have a choice: to stay submerged in the hurt, or to walk in the fullness of His healing.
