My name is Ginger D.
I was born here in South Africa; I want to thank relationships and dating for also giving the opportunity to air my views and share my story too. Thank you Admin R&D. I had been born into a very nice household. I had a mother, father, and older sister. When I was 6, my baby brother was born. I was quite happy, honestly. But, when I was 9, my life flipped. I had been staying in one of my cousin’s house for a weekend. She had left to the mall and we noticed there was a strange man in the house (her mother’s one night stand). Well, why she was gone, the man entered her bedroom and locked the door. Completely oblivious, I kept playing. Next thing I know, I was thrown on the bed and raped. I don’t know who he was or where everyone else was. My cousin found me in a corner of the room naked, crying, but they refused to ask why. I never told anyone… My life kind of returned to normal until I was 14. Once again, I was raped while playing in a local park. I have no recollection of that day really being that I passed out halfway through. Once again, I refused to tell anybody. My life was then good until 2 summers ago. My mother had allowed me to go to one of my friend’s parties. The party lasted until 12 but I was staying there overnight so, it didn’t matter. In the midst of the party, I had begun feeling numb and dizzy. I blacked out completely. Come to find out, I had been drugged and taken advantage of. How do I know this? All my “friends” stopped talking to me and began spreading rumors, calling me a “wh*re” and “easy”.. It lasted up until mid April where I had had enough. I called everyone that had spread around the things and told them, “You won.”
I wanted to kill myself by all means, because I was tired of the shame, the shame that I never brought to myself, so I took overdosed of drugs and went to sleep, believing that I won’t wake up the next day. In my sleep, I say a man, who came with a bright light, I couldn’t even stare at his face, the light was just too bright, he stretched forth his hand, yea. I recalled there was a hole in his hand, he called me by my full name, and told me that “My Daughter, I died for your sake, and I took your shame and gave you my glory. You will not die, go and tell your peers about the love I have for you and them.” I woke up with tears in my eyes.
Ever since, then I accepted Christ into my life and I am now born again. You can never tell the amount of joy I walk with everyday. You too can experience the love and joy that I experience by accepting Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior. Say these words after me and mean it from the depth of your heart:
LORD JESUS, I KNOW YOU DIED FOR ME, I ACCEPT I AM A SINNER, COME INTO MY LIFE, BE MY LORD AND PERSONAL SAVIOUR, FORGIVE ME ALL MY SIN IN JESUS NAME. AMEN.
If you just said that prayer,
Type Amen and start living right for the Lord. God bless you.
