Mercy Makinde, the founder of IASPIRE RADIO, Nigeria’s first motivational radio station, has a lot to be thankful for.
Mercy, on her Facebook page, recounted her blessings and is thankful. Today, she is celebrating another wedding anniversary with her husband after she left her first abusive marriage.
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!
