"For we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not of ourselves."

Broken By Abortion, Fixed By Jesus

by Michelle Shelfer

Have you ever wondered if you can be forgiven for the unforgivable?

This four minute animation offers an answer from an unexpected vantage point.

Decades ago an animated character began to flit about at the peripheries of my mind's eye.  Over the years the character became an
imaginary friend, always nearby yet never fully in focus.

On the occasion of my fiftieth birthday I had what can only be described as a supernatural encounter with my imaginary friend, at a critical time in my life when I had begun to wonder if I could ever find joy. What prevented me from finding joy? A haunting memory from 25 years prior, from which I had no power on my own to find relief.

The message conveyed during that encounter forms the basis for this short animated film, and is intended as an encouragement for any who might suffer from the same unhealed trauma.

For me, the big surprise was that my imaginary friend was a real person who was very close to me.

We now recommend you watch "Broken by Abortion, Fixed by Jesus" at Michelle's full website on this sensitive topic:

"I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord GOD.
I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away,
and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that
which was sick..." (Ezek 34:15-16)

God has given Michelle many creative gifts. Please also visit her broader website which contains wonderful offerings in praise of Adonai Y'shua at
