Lady whose father gave her out in marriage at 18, shares her inspiring story (photos)

Earlier today, one Mrs Mercy Makinde, took to her Instagram oage to celebrate her wedding anniversary and in the process shared her inspiring life story.
In her words;
 'If you don't know my story, you won't understand my glory. Given out to a man older than my own father at age 18. Abused Physically, Emotionally, Sexually, Verbally and Mentally for 11 years. Attempted Suicide three times. Lost my Self Esteem, Confidence and sense of being. Was disconnected from family , friends, church and society at large.
But God came through! Rescued me from the valley of shadow of death! He gave me a second chance at life and marriage! Blessed me with a man that loves and cherishes me. He Restored all that I had lost over the years. Blessed me with two more children after it was said I will never have children again! He turned my Misery to a Ministry...my Mess to a Message!
On this day years ago, God compensated me for all the years of agony and pains and gave me Beauty for Ashes. I have plenty reasons to celebrate!

    Thanks for sharing your story to inspire others and thank God for His grace over your life.
    Like the popular saying goes-"When there's life, there's hope"
