Getting a husband was a battle!
It was as if all the men in the world,
both married and single, even the widowers,
made a secret pact to keep away from her
She didn't know what she had to do
to get a husband
She had worked on herself
She was willing and ready
She was thirty-four years old
She was a medical doctor
She was fair in complexion, carried herself
with dignity and she was beautiful!
She had always kept an open door in her
communication with men
She didn't give any mixed signals
She wasn't proud
She was not desperate
She did not pretend either
She just wasn't picked
She didn't know why
She convinced herself her time would come
She cried herself to sleep on many nights
Eventually, she was approached by
one of her patients
A forty year old married woman
She couldn't have guessed where the
conversation would lead to
The lady didn't mince words
"My husband has decided to marry a
second wife, I am happy with the decision
and i have prayed about it
I have also discussed it with him!
He likes you and had given me the go-ahead
to discuss the possibilities with you
Will you marry us? Be my second?
She didn't know what to say
The woman's husband was a well to do businessman
He was into cement distributorship
He had always been very polite and courteous
He didn't give her any hint
She told the woman she would think about it
The next morning, the woman's husband
Of course, he was striking while the iron was still hot
They all belonged to a religion
which allowed him to marry many wives
and also empowered her to be his second wife
It was not a question of morality
It was a question of choice
She was lonely
She convinced herself
Her family members loved the idea
She didn't have any reason to hope for
less than the best
The ceremony was elegant and quiet
Her "senior wife" was extremely supportive
and acted as an elder sister
She was marrying into a family of six
Her senior wife already had four children!
She got pregnant the very month after
She was apprehensive and felt like an
outsider in the marriage
Not because of anything her husband or
the senior wife did but because she couldn't
just settle down to the fact that he
equally belonged to her after they
Apart from her internal conflict,
the marriage was a blessing
She had someone saying "Hello"
She finally belonged!
She started to settle into the marriage!
Her husband was a gentle and very caring man
He did everything she desired, even in bed
He was very sensitive to her needs
She delivered her baby!
Her "senior wife" came to the hospital
the day after she delivered and gave
her a popular locally made plantain chip
"Eat this at 1 AM tonight!
Eat it now while you are still bleeding from
You now know the pain of motherhood,
you are now ready to learn how to protect your
children from the evils of this world!"
She was born and bred in Abeokuta
They all still live in Abeokuta
She was not a novice
She knew what was being insinuated!
She told her senior wife she would do as instructed!
She was cordial.
Senior wife left!
Later that night, she flushed the plantain chips
down the toilet
She slept like a baby Senior wife returned the
next morning "Why didn't you eat the chips?"
The senior wife asked
"I ate it" She replied!
The senior wife said "You will never have
another child until you do my bidding"
Years went by!
She never got pregnant again
She wanted more children and tried
everything medically and traditionally
that she could to get more children
She was told to by the herbalists to
mend fences with the person she offended!
Her husband had no clue what was going on
Eight years after her first child,
the senior wife came to her room one night!
She said "You seemed to be comfortable
with this one lamp
What if I snuff out its light?
What will you do then? Poor you!
She had goosebumps all over her body
She rushed to her son's room He was alive
She started living in fear
She couldn't even imagine losing her son
She needed help and fast She reached out
to @GbengaWemimo via DM
I want to meet the Brother in Jeans and T-shirt
I need help! They spoke!
He led her to Christ
He told her to get a Bible and read the book of John!
She said the Bible was not allowed in her
home but she downloaded one on her phone!
They read the book of John
He told her she was no longer born of
flesh and blood!
She had become a child of God!
She can no longer be afflicted
Her son was safe!
She got pregnant that month!
The senior wife couldn't believe it!
When the result of the scan showed that
she was going to have twins
The senior wife went to their husband and
said "she has been cheating!
This is not your baby!
There are no twins in your bloodline!
The accusations poured like rain
It was war
They did paternity test
The babies belonged to her husband
Senior wife said "She had converted to Christianity,
she now prays the Christian way"
Her husband asked if it was true.
She told her husband it was how
she was able to conceive after many unfruitful efforts
Their husband said it was okay!
Senior wife said she cannot live in the same
house with a Christian!
Their husband said the senior wife was
free to do whatever she wanted but the
house belonged to him and he will like
to keep his family under one roof
Senior wife left the house
By this time, she had become Holy Ghost filled
and was praying in the spirit everyday
Fiery darts were thrown at them but they
had no effect!
Senior wife's children started drawing close to her
Three of the senior wife's children and
her husband gave their lives to Christ Glory!
Senior wife filed for divorce
The divorce became final on 13th June 2019
Light was separated from darkness!
Ps: If you are suffering from suspected demonic
activity and you are a believer
Don't buy the lie of the devil that you need
to add something to Jesus!
Jesus is enough!
