This is Mary Priddy’s testimony of how Jesus saved her from Prostitution. God can save all of us from the miserable lives we lead and bring us into something more beautiful. Everyone has an ugly past, and the fact is we all have sinned, and fallen short in God’s eyes. He does forgive us, and when He does, he throws our past, our sins into the sea where He chooses not to bring it up again.
Micah 7:19 (NIV), “You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.”
God doesn’t drag up forgiven sins and point them out to us. Instead, the devil, the “accuser of the brethren” (Rev 12:10) and he is constantly accusing us before God. When the devil reminds us of our ugly past, we need to remind ourselves that Jesus’ blood has bought our forgiveness and we are forgiven. Remember, it isn’t God who remembers, it is the devil who accuses us. Forgive yourself of your past, and walk forward in the great plans that God has for your life.
Mary Priddy is a woman who is trying to reach out to those women who are in pain. Share this post, and maybe another woman who is a victim can also be rescued by Jesus.
I was a victim of sex trafficking over 11 years ago. I was addicted to drugs and one thing led to another and before I knew it I was working in spas and then got deeper into the web and I was escorting then being pimped and walking streets.
I was lost for so long in the darkness and I just gave up and into the pain.
I was rescued by prayers of loved ones and crying out to God on the floor of a crack house and he met me there!
The years that followed were so hard because I was so afraid and I did not dare trust men any man! If I was in a group of people for to long and it was quiet I would have a panic attack and have to Leave because when I was in the darkness, the people would intentionally get me high and bad things happened or I would be so out of it laying down and things would happen and I would just pretend I was passed out because I didn’t have the strength to fight.
I had to learn to think for myself again and I didn’t realize how long it had been since anyone asked me what I wanted instead of deciding for me but it had been so many years.
There were a few times I returned to the clubs and partying and sex because that was all I knew for so long!
I am finally able to be independent with my thoughts and actions and don’t have to keep asking people “is that ok” before doing something.
I finally know that I have more to offer this world than my body and I can be around men and not think that’s all they want.
I still live in the same town all the destruction and being a prisoner happened. I drive on the streets I prostituted on everyday and all I can say is the Grace of God is more powerful than anything the enemy can ever do to us!
Because of the love of God that I was finally at a place in my life few years ago to receive this love, because to me love was sex and I could not tell the difference. But one day He broke through and I felt love! I have never felt love from a man so I am not sure if this is what it feels like but I know it made me feel powerful like I could do anything and comforted like a child all at same time.
So the road to redemption and freedom after you have been a prisoner in the drugs and sex trade is a long and painful one, but once you get past all the hurt and woundings you received and your able to look in the mirror and not cry, that is to me Freedom and Love of God in the purest sense!
The sex trafficking is a real a detrimental horrific prison of torture that takes the victim and strips them of any kind of dignity, self esteem, self worth, identity,…any and everything that makes us human is taken away and the victim is imprisoned and tortured repeatedly.
We have to do more so much more than we are doing to help stop these animals that are in control of trafficking innocent, precious lives!
It takes one flicker of hope to start a blaze of freedom through prayer and raising your voice!MP
Share this please! So that we can be used to spread the Love light of Jesus onto the Darkness of Sex Trafficking! And spread the Love light of God onto those in Need of Hope!
