I got to the rehearsal late. At the time I was serving under Nii Okai with Virtue so I had to go for rehearsals in Tema Community 3 , First Baptist Church(I think) So I got there a bit late. I was received by Quesie Boate who led me to a basement where the meeting was taking place. Abi me I didn’t know that I was going to meet my thing( HUSBAND) there so me deir I went in and sat at the back. Funny thing is that I had been given the song to learn some 2 years ago by another ministry bi in Lome. (But they never got to having the event nti) When I was called by the then MD Mart Gyim, I just went and did what I was created to do……. I remember the silence right after the second try out….ooo E’M Praise. …..
And then from nowhere I locked eyes with this thin, dark, ‘SU President’ looking guy…. our eyes locked just for a brief moment..and then I thought to myself ‘some of these guys can look spiritual papa. Look at his glasses bi’. I mean can u blame me, he looked like his food was fasting (get it, his food was fasting).
And me deir I went to sleep on some table bi coz it was an all night rehearsal. So when it was almost over, the same Quesie Boate escorted me. So the D-Day came. I was on the bill with Joycelyn Armah, Joe Mettle, Nii Okaii. And guess who was assigned to all the guest ministers? Opana!!
I really enjoyed myself. I mean if u have such anointed vessels how can miss the presence of God. So the event was over. Monday I get to the office and log on Facebook and whose message do I see in my inbox? Eiiiii…..spiritual brothers too have feelings. ……lol…
The message read…..
So fast forward 15 months from when I got the message from that ‘tall, thin SU President looking guy’. Its 16th December 2011. Its a Friday and the morning is dryer than the usual. We are all at the upstairs restaurant of Frankies, Osu. Christian Sinclear has very well managed to organise a surprise birthday party for me. (How he pulled it off….esa l3 deintse) Its a breakfast party. And i realise at the table that the people around are not the usual guys we hang out with. He had all my siblings at the table. Evangeline Gbenartey Isaac Gbenartey-Emmanuel Amoo-Darku N’N’adom Essandoh-Smith and very close friends around….Richard Nii Addo and his wife Nana Addo, Edward Oteng Maafo Ruth M’adjoa Otchere and Cami Çami Offei.
All these guys are my witnesses so dont worry its not something I made up.#justsaying. In the middle of the meal he announces that he wants to make a presentation (they were all presenting their gifts so it was not unusual) so he looked to my big sis n her husband at the head of the table and they gave him a nod of approval.
Eiiii na me dier wat is going on here…..that was what I was thinking o….
Last time he (the thin tall dark SU President looking guy) had asked permission to make a presentation at the surprise breakfast meeting. All of a sudden he was on his knees and I (the Ga girl that I am) started asking him ‘eiii what are you doing, aaa what is going on? Blah blah blah…
Pls this is not a dream nor a lie. The reason why I am stressing on this point is that those who know that thin tall dark SU President looking guy may not be able to match what I am saying to what they see when they look at him.
So he removed a crystal box with a red base (fyi I l love red) and said that he loves me and wanted to know if I would marry him.
I, of course a Ga girl who is attempting to be romantic, got up and covered my mouth and said ‘Oh my God, oh my God…yes… I will marry you.’ And we hugged and went on to the breakfast party.
When I was a kid I wanted to marry a white man. For a strange reason I just thought that I would suite a white man better but what did God do? He gave me a man from La, Accra. A man with as many flaws as me and made us one.
He(God) has used him to break me and shape me and mould me so that He (the same God) can fill me with His power.
The moral in this loooonnnggg story is to let you know that:-
1. GOD never works by our time table. Several times while writing, I stop and people keep complaining, getting mad, sometimes even give up reading. I like God never work with your time table. If we appreciate that about God, our walk with Him can be deeper.
2. We need to always trust the Lord that if He says it, He will do it. Each time I ended an episode I would tell you when I would continue. Sometimes I meet the deadlines other times not. God promised to take the people of Israel out of Egypt after 400 yrs. Only after 430 years did salvation come. Let us trust God for what He has said he will do. For God is not slow as men count slowness
3. I meant to encourage you who is trusting God for a partner, job, children etc. What is my proof? If He did it for Sarah, He can do it for you. If He did it for Naomi, He can do it for you.
IF HE DID IT FOR ME, HE CAN DO IT FOR YOU. DON’T GIVE UP. PERSIST TO THE END…..love u guys.
