I walked through the doors of Mercy Multiplied struggling with depression, anxiety, a history of abuse, unhealthy relationships,anger, self harm,pornography,I was struggling with my eating, I had tried to commit suicide etc. I did not understand God's love for me and didn't feel worthy of receiving it. I hated who I was and genuinely wanted to die. I was diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder and an Anxiety Disorder. I had several Drs tell me I would always be this way and be on medication for the rest of my life. According to the world, there was no hope for me. I came to Mercy as a last resort, and remember telling my counselor at the time, "if this doesn't work I will come home and kill myself."
The day I walked through the doors of Mercy I was met with an enormous amount of love and acceptance from the staff and the other girls in the program. I was immersed in Bible reading,praise & worship, Christian counseling,classes based on different teachings of the Bible,I had chores to do, fitness goals. It was nice to have structure and 24/7 supervision, because I knew that it wasn't safe for me to be alone. As part of the healing process I had to identify all of the lies that I had believed for 19 years of my life, and find the truth in God's word to combat each one. Mercy refers to them as Truth Statements. It was a hard process but it was worth it. They were a great tool in my healing process. I still have them and read them when I need a reminder of who I am in Christ. It was at Mercy that I finally understood what it was like to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I am no longer the girl that hated herself. I love myself. I love life. I love Jesus and He loves me! I know that people love me and that I donâ€™t have to try and please people in order to be accepted. I have no desire to ever hurt myself again. My identity is in Christ, not in what the world says I should be. I know Iâ€™m not a failure, that God has so much in store for me. I have forgiven myself and I never thought in a million years that would be possible. I no longer want to die, I want to live. For more information visit www.mercymultiplied.com
