For the third time, I was taken into the van, confined in rehab, tied in bed, and at times straitjacketed with loads of injections and anti-depressants of all shapes and sizes. I could not sleep for days or weeks, full of fears, worries, doubts, and anxieties. I felt so empty, traumatized, abused, hurt, wounded with no amount of meds, doctor, therapy and counseling could help me. I became suicidal and lost my cognitive memory for 2 straight years because of spinal tap. My family said they could not handle me and my depression so the only solution was to to put me in a facility.
The same story unfolded for 12 years since I was 16. I felt so alone even with the company of Christian believers praying for me, doing deliverance and altar calls here and there.
However, God led me to a ministry that significantly healed my depression and restored my memory in 2007. After two years, God blessed me with freelancing creative writing jobs.
But in 2010, it seemed all hell broke loose. I believed I stepped out of the will of God and traveled somewhere for an international missions training that put my life in danger but God intervened and rescued me.
But because of my past, the stigma, and the shameful things I did known to almost everyone within my circle, people put a label on me no matter how much healing, restoration, and wholeness God has already done for me.
And for the past three years, I suffered continuous verbal harassment, mockery, sarcasm, and connivance by wicked people who knew about my past and wanted to do great damage to me even to the point of attempting to kill me in my condo unit. Everywhere I go they follow and harass me.
Until three weeks ago, I began seeking God, crying out to Him, forgiving all my enemies, meditating, declaring, and applying the Words of God and renewing my mind and seeing who God is and who I really am.
Praise God that for four days now I was set free and that no amount of harassment can take away my inner peace and identity in Christ.
He set me free before learning about Wellspring International
, a ministry that rescues, rehabilitates, and restores women and children at risk in human trafficking, sex slavery
, prostitution, and other human injustices.
I can identify and see the pain of each of these women and children with no one to believe, protect, and rescue them except God through the hands of ministries like Wellspring International. My experience seems so miniscule compared to the bride burning
, women and kids with HIV/AIDS, orphaned kids, destitute elderly, refugees and those in poverty.
I know how it feels to be given a label, to be shunned, exploited, abused, and not to be believed and helped even by my own family. Just by knowing all about the horrible things that befell these victims touched my being and compelled me to find inner strength in God alone so that I can also help them.
Wellspring International is a wellspring that gives relief, refreshment, ease and above all gives life back to victims with rivers of living waters. They live by the verse –
“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.” 1 John 4:1 ESV
Imagine a world where every person cares for even just one person and do something like listening to her story, sharing the gospel, and rescue her from that situation.
