Chapter One


A YOUNG GIRL FINDS herself locked up in a dungeon. Her tired body, clothed in rags, is bruised and battered by her unseen master. Tears of despair have rolled pathways into her dusty skin. She is exhausted and easily distressed as the torment and constant abuse has left her being a ball of nerves…

There is no glimmer of hope since the heavy chains can seemingly never be broken off her ankles. Initially, she was enticed by the many promises that stated that she would encounter happiness, freedom, enjoy wealth, and live the good life. She was naive enough to embrace this idyllic mirage. She would be far away from her overprotective and seemingly unloving family.

This charmer said it would not even cost her much. She only had to trade her heart, innocence, and joy. It was a fair exchange compared to all the promises. But the reality was that the sweet-talking Casanova had other intentions for this gullible girl.

He kept her longer than she intended to stay, and he took her further than she wanted to go, until there was nothing left of the person she once was. She now believed her master’s words wholeheartedly as he has continuously told her that she is worthless, despised, vile, and utterly disgusting! “Yes,” she nodded her head in shame. That is who she has become.

At this point, she wishes to die, but that privilege is not even granted to her. In her attempt to rest, she cannot escape the regret and utter sorrow, but when she is awake, the days are long and miserable. If her parents were to see her now… If anyone would be able to recognize her, maybe they could rescue her. Still, that thought is growing strangely dim as the reality of the pit she is in and the depth of the darkness pulls her back to her awful truth. It is too late…

This story depicts how I felt as a young teenager. I was looking for an escape from the prison in my mind, but the enemy was right there, like a roaring lion, waiting to devour me. I was utterly ignorant, unaware of the dangers ahead and the immense cost of following him (1 Peter 5:8).

Join me as I reveal to you, with the help of the Holy Spirit, how I ended up in the dungeon, and how the King Himself came to rescue me…

The Power of the Spoken Blessing


The spoken blessing refers to the fact that our words carry power. When someone speaks positive words (of blessing) over you – at your birthday party, for example – it is far more than mere well-wishes.
