Luis: while in school, God gave me the name of the lady meant to be my wife, He further told me that I am meant to deliver her from foundational battles but I found myself in love with Sister Laura, the sister welfare in my campus church.
For weeks, I asked God to allow me marry Sis Laura instead of the lady whose name was given to me. Sis Laura was a fervent and dedicated beautiful young lady. It was the same Sister Laura that made me fall.
Ife: made you fall? How?
Luis: I was about retiring to bed one night when she called me and was crying on the phone. She explained amidst tears that some boys were trying to break into her room. I ended the call without thinking and ran to her apartment.
Getting to her room, there were no boys, in fact, I met her tying only towel around her body. Before I knew what was happening, the towel dropped from her body and we had a copulation which led to you.
Ife: what??? Where is she? I mean, how come you guys aren’t together?
Luis: after the act, the reality of what had happened dawned on me. I lost the anionting and presence of God, in fact, God left me. I reported myself to the campus pastor and was placed on discipline. I spent most days praying and crying to God for forgiveness and restoration.
Laura became pregnant and I had to take her to my parent, they were disappointed in me but they had accepted her. I was restored two months to the end of my youth service. Getting home after my youth service, I was informed that Laura left you and went away. I searched and searched for her but no one knew her whereabout. It was later I saw the letter she left behind, she said she can’t be with a man without future.
Ife: wow! So she didn’t bother about me, it’s twenty four years now
Luis: yes son. By the time I was ready to settle down, the lady meant for me was already married. She also married wrongly, you see, just a little mistake on my path destroyed God plan for the lady and I
Ife: hmmm, this is serious
Luis: you remembered what happened between you and Deacon Sola’s daughter five years ago?
Luis was at a convention but he was restless, suddenly, Holy Spirit asked him to hurry home. Getting home, he met his wife and little daughter’s absence. He proceeded to Ife’s room and was so shocked to see him in a heated romance with one of his deacons daughter.
He was angry and heartbroken, after the girl was able to escape, he flogged Ife to a pulp. He ensured that he sustained serious injuries. In the middle of the night, he then preach to him and led him to Christ.
End of flashback
Luis: after beating you that day, I went to my prayer room and fell flat on the floor weeping profusely. I told God that I don’t want you to fall the way I fell, it was that day, God revealed everything about your future to me. God told me about Treasure.
Ife: wow! Like seriously??
Luis: yes son, you have a role to play in her restoration but she has a bigger role to play in the manifestation of your ministry. So son, I won’t force you to marry her but I will only advice you to do everything possible to make her yours
Luis: forget what people will say, they will be no where to be found when you start experiencing issues in your home. Son, we don’t marry because of the present, we marry because of the future
Ife: it may not be easy but I know God’s grace is sufficient for me
Luis: sure, it is. Do fast and bring her to me
Luis: just kidding son
Ife: thank you for being both a mother and father to me. I will never let you down sir
Luis: this gladden my heart. God will help you son
Ife: do you suggest I ask her out? She will be going back to Lagos next week
Luis: why not be a friend to the family then you can make your intention known to her family afterward.
Ife took to his father’s advice and tried becoming a friend to Treasure’s family. One evening, he went to her grandmother’s house to look for her.
Treasure was surprised when her granny came to inform her that she had a visitor, she went into the living room and was surprised to see Ife sitting on the couch. He smiled the moment he set his eyes on her.
