I prayed to God to give me a husband. Like every born again Christian lady I wanted a good Christian man and being very popular in my Headquarters church, I had the mindset that a certain group of people would likely walk up to me and say “the Lord says you are the bone of my bone yada yadayada” but…it didn’t happen! I became confused and wondered ‘how come’! I appear on all the screens in the church to give the church news more than anyone else in my department and I would always get compliments after the service but I wasn’t getting marriage proposals! Kilode! Don’t get me wrong I wasn’t doing it for marriage but in my little mind as a human being I just felt it would put me in a better position to get a “Bro” to take me off the single’s market! When I realized it wasn’t working I decided to just hold on to God for God more and take my mind off getting a spouse by just being on screens speaking grammar.
Bear in mind biko there were guys coming to try to start something with me but after praying and being patient I discover stuff about them and the whole thing goes down the drain. Let me point out at this stage that I don’t seek prophets or prophecies I just pray on my own and really its being a very revealing time! There was a brother in church who left me cosafter he asked for sex and I said no he told me to go increase my boobs and bum! He broke off with me on that note but we know why he did don’t we! Lol,,, I wish that brother could see me now!
At this point I had made up my mind to not marry any guy from my church as I felt they were just like this guy, life did go on and I continued to work pray and serve, I made friends with a very quiet guy in church who was also a member of my department and I told him my experience with the guy in church. He only told me to be careful of some brothers in church as their intentions were not really sincere, he was a good friend and not my type anyways so it was safe talking to him, towards the end of the year he started chatting me in a much friendlier way! I be woman nau so I suspected where he was headed but sine he was not ‘my type’ I just played dumb and made him feel dumber in a way, eyah! Fast forward months later we started dating, I decided to keep this relationship a secret from my friends as I was tired of telling them I have some one and later it’s over,,,it worked! Depending on the pattern of events in your life, it’s good to know when to share certain things and whom to share them with for me sharing my plans with people before I do them usually ends in the failure of the ‘intended plan’,,, I believe someone can relate with me.
I am not writing this to show off or rub some things in anyone’s face trust me I have nothing to boast of save the grace of God, I just want to share my story and hopefully it encourages someone or we can all learn from each other. Now let me put dates to my story…I joined this church in 2011, started this relationship in 2013 say between January to march, told the pastor in December, started marriage counseling in March till August 2014, got married in 2016 at the young age of 34!
