Lady Finds Love; after she was married to man older than her father at 18 & attempted suicide

A Nigerian lady who was married off to a man older than her father at the age of 18 and attempted to take her own life three times over the situation, finds love again!

To celebrate her wedding anniversary, the beautiful lady, Mercy Makinde, shared the touching story of how she was given out in marriage to an old man and all that happened. She wrote:

'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, S*xually, 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!

To those going through some uncomfortable situations at the moment, don't give up. There is hope!
