Review for Mercy Multiplied, Nashville, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I stayed for 8 months and literally came out a new person. Faith refreshed, thoughts renewed. I felt loved and I learned so much about myself and God every day. I would recommend this ministry to anyone struggling. I would not be who I am today had I not taken the leap of faith and went to Mercy. I have been out of the program for almost 4 years and now have my own ministry (@godly_marriage_101), am married, and am a mother. So worth your time.

Review for Mercy Multiplied, Nashville, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I went into Mercy Multiplied having experenced one of the most tragic acquisitions. I was robbed. I had experenced identity theft. Not financially, but emotionally and spiritually. I felt like I had lost everything. I was left with no hope, no joy, no self-control, and I lacked the ability to love and be loved. Satan robbed me, locked me up, and the only thing he fed me was lies. I was held captive for years, starving for truth, and everytime I tried to escape I had no sense of direction. I was out of options. Mercy Multiplied, though. They re-connected me with the One I thought would never want anything to do with me. His name, His sweet name, is Jesus. The first thing Jesus did was make sure that I knew that He still loved me. Deeply, too. After everything I had done, He still loved me deeply. I suffered with self-harm and anorexia for a long time. I bowed down to the lies for a long time. I felt helpless and I was shameful. But I spent a lot of time with Jesus while I was at Mercy Multiplied, and He became my best friend. Now, I am walking in freedom, I am married to the man of my dreams, and I am falling more and more in love with Jesus every single day.

I strongly feel like in order to walk in the freedom Christ offers, you have to go through a (3 seasons) process:
1.) The first season is realizing that you aren't free, and that was a heartbreaking season for me. Building up the courage to drop your pride, and the bravery to seek help. Not as easy as it sounds.
2.) The second season is the hardest though, which is choosing freedom. The enemy and the flesh scream loud, which sometimes make it really hard to choose what pleases Jesus. But, everytime you say no to sin, it gets a little easier the next time. It's like a muscle. It's a refining process. It's really uncomfortable sometimes. But the beauty in it is that God is molding your character and strenghening you to fight the good fight.
3.) The third season is WALKING IN the FREEDOM you fought for. You've chose Jesus enough times now that it is molded into your character. It's who you are. You are a servant of Christ. A warrior. An overcomes. Not that it's always the easiest thing, but you know now that it is always possible.

I'm in season number three. I'm waking in freedom. I would never change my decision to seek help and I cherish my experience at Mercy Multiplied.

Mercy Multiplied is changing lives. It changed mine.
