I don call this call, but she no dey pick her call… I pray say make I meet her for house

Christina’s mum talk to herself as she headed towards Christiana house

She got to her door and knocked. After knocking for few minutes and no response, she pushed the the door and it suddenly opened,.

Christiana mother dragged the luggage in…

Where is this girl? Why did she leet the door open? She dropped her bag and examined the whole room, it a room and palour self contain.

Thewhole house was so dirty, the toilet was left opened, making the whole living room stinking, the kitchen was so untidy, a lot of dirty plate were left in the sink, making flies to play around the kitchen, the pot containing the food was left opened on the floor, dirt water was stored up in a bowl, the floor was so dirty, the living room was like the field used during world war one, the table was turned upside down, left over food was on the floor, waters was everywhere as a result of abandoned pure water sachets, Christiana’s mum was so surprise with what she saw.

Let your will be done father! Your will oh lord! I want your will! She continue praying without noticing the presence of her mum

Her mum angry left the room, and started tidying up the whole house, she cleaned and sweep the living room, washed the whole plate, , flushed and cleaned the toilets, mopped the floor, this takes her two hours before cleaning the whole house… She became tired and hungry.

She checked the time and it was past 4 in the evening, Christiana was still praying…

Christiana’s mum wanted her to cook for her, her mother decided to wait for her to finish her prayer, while waiting for her she slept off on the couch…

Christiana mum woke up in the night feeling weak and tired, she yawn and checked her time

Jesus! Eight don reach? I beg where is this girl?

She stoop up and went to Christiana room only to find her still praying, she looked at her angrily and wish to give her a sounding slap, but she controlled herself and went out after giving out a long hiss

She went to the kitchen and cook a meal for herself as she was tired of waiting for Christiana, she cooked and eat the food alone

She settled down on a three sitter chair, switch on the television and was changing the channel searching for her favorite channel

Few minutes later, Christiana came out of her room, she was surprise to see her mum

Mum, good evening , when did you arrive? She said jumping at her mum

What is good about this evening? Leave me alone jor! She said pushing her away, I came all the way from east to see my daughter, only to spend four good hours in the same house with her without good hospitality…

Mum,am sorry! I just need to talk to my heavenly father, there is power in prayer you know… She said hugging her mother again Is that the reason why you left your whole house untidy, I thought I entered the wrong house…

Oh! That true, I didn’t notice until you said it now, you tidy up everything!

Christiana said looking at everywhere

I was busy praying throughout the day, I didn’t have the time to tidy up… Taenk you mum

Christiana, you are no longer a kid, just because you are praying doesn’t means you shouldn’t perform your duty. You are going to become a wife and a mother one day, and all these…

Mum, I can’t neglect my heavenly father because of a worldly thing, Christiana cut in.

God is my first priority, after Him comes every other things

You are right my daughter, but am sure God won’t be happy seeing your whole house untidyy…

Mum, let forget about that, am perceiving some aroma in the kitchen… She stoop up and went to the kitchen

She opened the pot and saw what her mother cooks

Wow! Mum! I love you! I know it gonna be my favorite, am so famished… I need to eat… She served herself and joined her mother in the living room

She continue talking while her mother ignored her…

The next day, Christiana woke up early scattering the whole house and talking to herself

Where do I put my shoe? Oh God! She exclaimed

Her mother woke up

Why won’t you allow me to sleep in peace? Ehn Christy?

Am sorry mama, am looking for my shoe, and am almost late for work

Do you just listen to yourself, a 27years old lady looking for her shoe, when you are not a five yeas old girl, you are not organised at all…

Christy rushed to the bathroom, took her bath and dress up in hurry… She picked her bag and rushed out of the bedroom

Mum, take care… She said rushing to the door

Come back here, her mother beckoned on her, she stood up from the bed and examined Christy from head to toe

Don’t tell me you are going to work like this? Dirty shoes, untidy hair?

Mum, this is not important, these are just my body, the soul is the most important thing, as long as my soul is clean before God, any other thing is not important, the body will eventually perish in the end

Ehn! This girl have killed me, Christy don kill me o! Her mother exclaimed. Who will marry a lady looking like this? Who? Or do you think you will remain a spinster forever

Mum, that is where you people all got it wrong! A child of God will not marry base on beauty, but on the Will of God. A man who has the spirit of God will marry a woman who also have the spirit of God, the fear of God, who is devoted and committed, who prays and fast a lot, he won’t just go for beauty, mum, we will continue this discussion when I get back… Love you mum

Am Christiana

Nice name, I guess you are heading home?

Yes sir

Do you mind if I give you a ride?

I thought you came to buy something,

Yes, but I can do that later

Alright sir, thank so much

Johnson led her to his car, he opened the front door for her to enter and closed it after Christiana entered, he also entered the car and zoomed off

It was 10mints drive to Christiana house, Christiana thanked him for the ride and they exchanged contact

Christiana called him when she got home and thanked him again

They started friendship after their meeting at the supermaket. Johnson calls her everyday, this made their friendship grow from normal friends to best friends

They spend time together during weekend, this gives them the opportunity to know each other more

Two month after their friendship, Johnson invited her for a date

They got to the venue and Christiana ordered for both of them

You look happy today, any good news? Christiana asked, she poured some wine into her glass cup and drank it

Johnson smiled, dropped his cultery and wiped his mouth with the napkin.

Today is a special and important day in my life, because I want to open a new phase in my life with you Christiana

I don’t understand you

Christiana, before I met you, I never believe in love, the word love was never found in my dictionary, have dated several ladies, but they were after my money, they made me believe you can buy love with your money and discard it after using it then pick up another one, but ever since you came into my life, you change my orientation about love, you changed the way I viewed love, I tested you several time to know if you are also in for my money, but you never fail for once, you proved to me that love still exist, everything about you is so different from what have experience from other girls, Christiana, am sorry I can’t keep you as a friend any longer, am tired of pretending not to love you when am deeply in love with you, pls Christiana, I don’t want you as a friend nor a girlfriend, but I want you to marry me. Christiana pls be my Mrs,

Johnson knelt down on his kneel and brought out a ring

Pls dit down Johnson, pls. Christiana stoop up and lift him up, they both sat down

Johnson, am speechless because I wasn’t expecting this. Thank so much for all what you have said so far, thank for opening your heart for me, thank for seeing me as someone you want to spend the rest of your life with, I really appreciate, base on what you asked me, I would have love to give you an answer now, but am sorry I can’t. Johnson, we are both Christian, and you know Christian don’t act on their own, they act base on the will of God, they does their Father’s will not their own will and also marriage is a very delicate issue, a wrong marriage which is out of God will can make a Christian lose heaven, it can make Satan inherit ones soul, it takes away the joy of Christ away from such victim, and no matter how much such person want to make it right again, it can never be the same again. I don’t want to fall victim of a wrong marriage, pls Johnson I will really appreciate it if you can give me some time to pray about it, I need to know my father’s will base on my marriage… Pls

It okay, you have the whole time for yourself, am not in hurry…

Thank you, but one thing Johnson

Was that?

I will be glad if we can continue our friendship, let pretend as if we never had this conversations

Why?

Johnson, am also a human, blood flows through my veins. If we keep on discussing this, I might fall in love, and if I pray to God in such state of mind, I will only receive from God what is already in my heart, God said in his word that He will answer them according to the idols in their heart, I don’t want to have an idol in my heart before praying about it, pls help me go to God with a free heart so that I will hear from him directly… Help me by not starting the fire of love in my heart now, pls

It okay, have heard you, as long as it for the good, I will do what you want

Thank you Johnson

You are welcome

They continued with their meal, after their meals Johnson dropped Christiana home before heading to his house

The following week, Christiana started her prayer and fasting, asking God for His perfect in her life. She called her pastor and informed him to join her in prayer.

The pastor called her after two weeks and told her what he saw concerning her marriage

Sister Christiana, what is happening to bro Johnson, I mean the love he has for you is from God, God planted your love in his heart, which means he is your husband, God even confirm it through mummy, my wife. I didn’t tell her anything about your marriage, but God showed her just to confirmed what I saw… Sister Christiana, he is your husband

Humm, Christiana sighed. Thank you daddy, I really appreciate your effort and time sir. May God continue to strengthen you. Daddy, am confused, do you believe that despite my prayer and fasting, I haven’t seen anything, God haven’t shown me anything about him

Sister Christiana, that is not a problem, just open your heart to God, He will speak to you

Alright, thank you so much sir. I want to be on my way now, my regards to mummy

God bless you. Take care of yourself

Christiana left the church and headed home, she believed what the pastor said but she want to be convinced, she want God to talk to her.

She got home, went straight to her bedroom and started praying

God, I believed what you said through daddy, but Lord am the victim here, am the one going into this marriage, show me Lord, show me what you have for me in this marriage, show me your plan for both of us in this marriage, if truly you want us together, what is your purpose for both of us, what is our destiny, where will the marriage heads to. Lord pls show me

Christiana prayed for five hours and slept off

She was ministering, thousands of people were in the hall, people were singing, dancing and praising God as she led the praise and worship, everywhere were full of the glory of God, after singing she handed the mic to Johnson, and he stated praying, a lot of miracles were happening, every body was receiving their miracles

Her phone started ringing, she woke up and picked her phone, it was Johnson that called, but before she could picked it, Johnson hanged it up

So I have been dreaming? Me and Johnson ministering in a big hall? God what are you trying to say to me.

The holy spirit ministered to her, that is my plan and purpose for both of you in this marriage, you will both work for me, I will use you both for my glory, both of you are vessel unto honour to me

Thank you Jesus, thank you Lord! She sings and praise God throughout the day

Now I have a confirmation, she told herself

Christiana refused to give answer to Johnson after the revelation, she kept it to herself

During the weekend she travelled to a popular mountain in ekiti state called Erio mountain, she got there on Friday to spend three days, after the registration and reading of the mountain rules and regulations, she carefully placed her bag in the auditorium meant for women, she went to the mountain and started praying

God, I know you have given me confirmation about Johnson, you have shown me your will for my life, your purpose for me and Johnson, but God, I need more. Every relationship has its own challenge, every relationship is full of ups and downs, whether you marry right or wrong, there is always up and down, what makes the marriage overcome such trials is what they received from you God, Lord, pls show me, I want to know what I will hold on to if our trials come, I want to know what will keep me strong if the war of marriage begins, pls God of this mountain show me. Christiana prayed this way for three good days but didn’t see anything. God didnt speak to her, it was time for her to leave the mountain, She need to resumed to the office the next day, so she gave up and decided to come back when she is on leave, she prayed again before going to sleep, during the night She had a dream, she saw a big bowl of water, a small bowl of water and an empty bowl, someone she could not recognized carry the big bowl of water and poured some water into the empty bowl, he also carried the small bowl of water and poured some to the empty bowl too,

Christiana, the man call him

Yes sir, I have mixed the big water and the small water together, now separate them

Sir, the two waters have been mixed together, there is no way I can separate them

The mam took her again to a burning fire, he poured some petrol inside the fire,

Christiana, separate the fire from the petrol

Sir, there is no way I can separate the petrol again

Christiana, as you can’t separate the two waters when I joined them together, nothing will separate you and Johnson if you marry each other, as you can’t separate the fire from the petrol, both of you will become inseparable after coming together. These are my signs for you Christiana

Christiana woke up in the mid night sweating profusely, she sat down and meditate on what she dreamt about.

Johnson and I can’t be separated if we comes together? God you are an awesome God.

Christiana left the mountain the next day, she called Johnson to meet her at their favorite spot. She accepted Johnson proposal. He was so happy, he thanked Christiana for accepting her and thank God for saying yes to their union. They started their courship immediately maintaining sexual purity in their relationship.

Two months later, Johnson made an arrangements to introduced christana to his friends. He invited his friends to his house one weekend

He gave Christiana some money to go to the market and buy some food stuff

Christiana went to the market, brought bitter leaf and other food stuff.

She hurried home and cooked before the arrival of Johnson’s friends

Johnson friends arrived few minutes later, Christiana came out of the kitchen and greeted them. They were happy to see her.

She hurried to the kitchen to serve the food. Johnson joined her in the kitchen to help her.

The aroma of this soup is no nice, he said smiling

Can I have some our madam?

Small thief, that is what you are, Christiana said and they both laugh

Thank you madam

Christiana put some soup in a small plate and gave it to him

Johnson tested the soup and immediately vomited, he rushed to the sink to washed his mouth and spit out the food

What happened? Christiana asked looking confused

Did you cook the bitter leaf without extracting the bitter, I means washing out the bitter and also the salt is too much

I don’t know what you are talking about, I just cook it like that, and the salt is much because it good for the body.

Oh God! Christiana you don’t cook bitter leaf like that, the soup is too bitter.

What do you mean? Are you insulting me now or what?

No dear, it not like that, okay am sorry. Let me help you with the serving, you have been cooking since, I think your phone is ringing, go and pick it

It not ringing, I can’t hear any sounds

It is, hurry

Christiana hurried out of the kitchen

Thank God she is gone, what should I do? The soup is so bitter and salty, I didn’t know Christiana doesn’t know how to cook, I should have helped her, I can’t serve this to my friend and disgrace my wife, they will always make jest of her, they will lose their respect for her if they find out she can’t cook I need to save her. I need to save her reputation, God what should I do before she comes back

Johnson serve the soup in a big pot and carried it, immediately he got to the living room close to the dining table, he slipped and fall, the whole soup turned over and every where was covered with soup

His friends moves closer to him

Hope you are okay? His first friend said examining his body

You should have been careful, another one said

Sorry, oh my God, the whole food is wasted. I thought am gonna taste Christiana food today, one of Johnson friends said

Am okay, thank you! Johnson said pretending to be hurt, God why? Why am I so careless? This food is so delicious, Christiana used her best recipe to cook it

It okay guy, we can always come back and eat, she is going to be our wife anyway, we still have a lot of time to spend together, Johnson second friend said

Christiana rushed down from the stair case, she saw the whole soup all over the ground. She was disappointed and angry wit Johnson for wasting his efforts

Johnson on the other hand was happy, thank God for the wisdom to pretend to fall so that I can pour the food away, at least am able to save my fiancé reputation, and also from future insult from my friends, he thought within himself and smiled.

This man heavy o, he said breathing so hard

Oga oya let go

The bar man dragged him to the car, he also enters the car.

Where is he living now? He checked his pocket and found his identity card

Leaveme alone! am fed up and tired of you, go! Go! He said unconsciously Christiana was confused, she changed his clothes and use a blanket to cover him.

The next morning, Christiana woke up early to cook for her husband, she prepare Johnson favorite food with the help of YouTube recipe, she set the dining table.

She went to the living room to wake Johnson when she met him sitting

Good morning, How was your night?

Johnson ignored her

Am talking to you Johnson

He stoop up, picked the pillow and blanket and walk out on her,

Christiana was surprise, this is the first time Johnson will ever walk out whenever she is talking. She followed him

Johnson took his bath and dressed up for office while Christiana continued ranting

Your food is ready. Eat something

Johnson remain silent, he picked his car key and left the house

Christiana was shocked, he rejected my food too? Is this man stupid or what, no problem, he will come back and meet me

Johnson got to office, feeling sad. He settled down in his office when the human resources manager informed him of the new secretary he just employed

Okay, guess you know what to do? He said staring at his laptop

Yes sir

Then get to work

Alright sir, the manager left

This is the first time seeing him like this, he is a cheerful and nice person, the manager told Deborah

What could be the problem then?

I don’t know, you should be careful and not offend him

Yes sir

Deborah sat down and was thinking about what the manager said

The ringing of the phone brought her back to reality. She picked it

Yes sir, yes sir.

She dropped the phone, searched her drawer for a file and rushed to Johnson office

Here is it sir! She gave him the file

Johnson flip some pages, then check the front page,

Are you blind or what? I said bring me heritage file not Helen. He shouted at Deborah

Deborah knelt down immediately, sir am so sorry pls don’t replace me

She rushed out

Johnson stoop up from his sit, pacing up and down. Why am I doing this? Why? God help me! Am dying inside! Christiana what have you turn me into! He sat down and sob silently. I need to make peace with my wife. I can’t do this anymore, keeping her away from me will affect people around me.

Johnson left the office early and drove home feeling happy

He got home and met Christiana dressing up in the bedroom, he tip toe making sure he doesn’t make any sounds and hugged her from behind

My queen!

Christiana looked back and slapped him so hard on the face

Johnson was shocked, he hold his cheevk as tears flow freely from his eyes

What do you take me for? You think you can drop me and pick me anytime you want? You went out yesterday, coming back home late and drunk, I bath and changed your clothes, I even woke up early to prepare your favorite this morning, only for you to reject my food,who does that! Mr Emmanuel Johnson, am tired of you! She shouted and walk out angrily

Johnson was so shocked and perplexed, he cried bitterly throughout the night.

He woke up late the next morning and didn’t meet Christiana at home, he was happy she left before he wokes up. He dressed up and left for office.

Deborah greeted him but he ignored her and walked to his office. He came out after some few minute

To be continued

Beyond His Will - Episode 8 Final

It all started in my office that fateful day, Deborah came to my office and asked me what happened to me, why am I always moody?

Flash Back

Deborah it a long story… Johnson said bowing down his head

I will love to listen sir, Christiana adjusted her sit

I got married to Christiana eleven months ago, I love and cherish her, I didn’t just go for her because of love, I went for her because God is also in approval of our union. We got married and everything change, she makes my life difficult, I tried to understand her everyday, but it seems like an impossible mission for me, I satisfy her with everything she want, Christiana will still complain, she fought with all my friends, and with everybody around me, Christiana is making my life unbearable.

Sir, what have you done about it? What step have you take to help your wife realized her mistakes?

I have talked to her several time.

After that?

I don’t understand, what else should I do?

Sir, marriage is beyond getting married to the right person, is beyond having a big weddings, it beyond loving your wife dearly, marriage is all about God walking with you in your marriage, directing your every step, you might get marriage to the right person and still regret, Adam got married to the bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh Eve, it is through this same Eve, Adam lost his relationship with God. Ananias and Sapphira were husband and wife, but the foolishness of Sapphira to caution her husband when Satan want to make them lie to the holy spirit cost them their lives, marriage is all about calling God to every of your discussions, matters, steps, thought, because Satan know how powerful marriage is, he won’t hesitate to come into a marriage if a small door is open to destroy it. Sir, am not saying what aunty Christiana is doing is right, but as the head of the house, have you taken the matter to God? did you for once prayed for her? Satan operated through peter, God favorite disciple to discouraged Jesus from doing his redemption assignment, Jesus knew it was not peter talking but Satan was operating through him, He rebuked Satan Mathew 16: 21-22, this mean Satan can use or operate through anybody to destroy a great destiny. You have a great mission with your wife, do you expect Satan to sit and watch while you make explore? No! he will definitely look for someone to use, I must say your wife might not notice this schemes of Satan to use her destroy her marriage, but as the head you shouldn’t have sleep spiritually too, go to God, pray for her, am sure there are lot of things that are yet to be reveal to you by God. Don’t get angry with your wife when you are also at fault by sleeping sprirutually as the head of the house, wake up sir

Deborah,that true, have slept… He breathed out and stood up from his sit, what should I do now? I suggests you go back to God, He is the one that knows all things

Thank you so much Deborah, I really appreciate

You are welcome sir

Deborah left his office

**

Back to the present

**

After my discussion with Deborah, I made up my mind to take my marriage problems to God. To wake up from my sleep and save my marriage, I made up my mind to go to the mountain of mercy, in ekiti state without telling you nor Deborah because I want to be alone with my God. I came home to pack my things and headed straight to mountain of mercy. I got there in the evening, find a good corner and started praying. I asked God for the forgiveness of my sin before I started fasting and praying for many month, alot was reveal to me by God, Johnson paused while Christiana listen attentively

Flash Back

Johnson laid down on the mountain praying. God save my marriage, pls remould my wife and my marriage. Come and be the sailors of our marriage ship, come and be the driver of our journey car. Pls Lord. After praying for many hours. The holy spirit ministered to him

Ican’t save your marriage, you only have the power to save or destroyed your marriage How Lord?

By selecting the type of problems you bring to me, most of the things you need Me for, you think you can handl them yourself, this made you to be the driver of your marriage

But, I asked you before going into this marriage and you gave your consent

I give consent, I don’t give grace, wisdom, power to be able to maintain and stay in my will unless you asked for it, Mathew 7:7 ask and it shall be given. When you don’t ask, I don’t give, I told you Christiana is my will for you, but do you ask me to give you wisdom to walk with her? Do you ask me to give you the grace to be the head of the house? Do you ask for the power that will make your marriage untouchable for the devil? Do you ask me to walk with you? Do you ask me to turn your weakness to strength? No! You didn’t. There is a lot beyond my will! Johnson your marriage was like that because you thought you only need me at the beginning, not daily basis.

Oh lord pls forgive me, there is indeed a lot beyond your will. I do not know I need wisdom, grace, power. Pls lord help me now before we drowned. Johnson cried and prayed.

Back to the present

Johnson looked at Christiana, she looked away trying to avoid his gaze, Johnson cleared his throat and continue his story

After praying for two months, God finally answered my prayer. I wanted to come home and embrace my new marriage, but God told me to stayed back. I asked him why? He didn’t reply until yesterday. A lot happened When he told me to stay back.

He rubbed his two palm together

Flash back

After a long stressful day without eating, but fasting and praying, Johnson went to the canteen to break his fast in the evening. He met a young man who looks happy and vibrant, the man brought some food and didn’t have money to pay, the woman was shouting at him when Johnson came to his rescue

What happened? Johnson asked

He came to buy food here, and he was telling me he forgot his money in his car, that is how they always come here and lie, the woman explained angrily

I actually forgot my wallet in my car, I told her to take her food while I go bring my Wallet to be sure that am not running away, but she refused

How much is the fees ma

600

Johnson brought out his wallet and paid for the man, the man was so happy. He appreciate him and left. Johnson finished eating and left the canteen, he was about to climb the mountain when someone called him, he looked back and saw the man he helped earlier

Thank so much for saving me earlier

You are welcome sir,

Have been waiting for you to walk pass since, I actually came to the mountain to thank God for the contract I won last week. I want to be on my way now, but I want to ive you something sir, he opened his car and brought out an invitation and 2000

Sir, take this for the money you spent earlier

No! Noo! That by gone.

Thank so much sir, if you don’t mind I would love you to be at my wedding, this is the invitation card. He gave him the card.

Alright, I will surely be there.

Thank you, the man entered his car and zoomed off

Johnson stood at the spot until the car was out of sight, he opened the card and checked it, Bassey john wed Chukudi Christiana

Chukudi was Christiana maiden name.

What! Johnson screamed! Creating attention as people looked at his direction

He sat on the floor and broke down in tears

Christiana is getting married? Just two month away from home! Johnson sat at the spot for three hours crying

Why God! You told me my mistakes and solution, why do you allowed Christiana to get married to another man? Why Lord! I promise to always pray for her, I promise to always invite you to our day to day activities, pls Lord. He cried so bitterly on the mountai

He wanted to go home, but God instruct him not to go, this made him cried more

Few weeks later, he received a letter from a young man, when he opened the letter, it was termination of marriage agreements. Johnson nearly fainted on seeing the letter, he laid down on the mountain for four days without eating or standing up, he was praying and crying.

God,pls save my marriage, pls Lord! One month later, the young man that gave him the wedding invitation came to the mountain with his wife for Thanksgiving. They greeted Johnson and he was so surprise the wife was not his wife. They oy bears the same name, He was so happy. The next day God told him to check the letter he received very well. Johnson searched the dust bin and saw it. He carefully looked at the names and it was totally different from his name and Christiana names, he laughed out loud, making jest of himself.

He was so happy throughout his stays on the mountain, thanking God.

He was praying one evening when the holy spirit ministered

Johnson, the reason why I asked you not to go home is because I want to remould you, and equipped you with what you need to stay in my will, and what you need that is beyond my will. I have dine all that. You can go home now.

He was so happy, and scared as the same time, he didn’t know what he is going to meet at home. The next day, he packed his clothes and headed home

Back to present

Christiana couldn’t hold back tears, she cried so bitterly.

What about the divorce letter you send to me? She said while crying

I didn’t send any divorce letter, Johnson was shocked

You did

I didn’t

Christiana was confused, she rushed to her bedroom and Johnson followed her. She was searching for the letter. Christiana searched under her bed and found the squeezed letter. She took it and looked at the name, it was totally different. The address was NO. 45 while Christiana address was NO 55. The same street but the number was different. Tears of joy rolled down from her eyes. Johnson drew her to himself and hugged him. The wedding invitation and the divorce letter remould our lifes, Johnson whispered to her.

They both cried in each other arm.

After much hugging and caring, Christiana cooked Johnson favorite food. He tasted the food and was so shocked

You cooked this?

Yes, for my king!

Thank my queen

They went out for a date to celebrate their new remould marriage!

Christiana woke up so early the next day, cooked for her husband when she left the kitchen, she found out Johnson had tidy up the whole house

Why would you do that? I don’t want any stress for you, Christiana said smiling

I just wanted to help my queen. They hugged each other and laughed

Christiana and Johnson visit bimbo and femi, they were so suorise as how Christiana respect and care for Johnson. Femi was forced to asked, pls what is the secret of this great change?

It a wedding invitation and a divorce letter, Christiana and Johnson chorus and laugh

Femi and bimbo was confused, I don’t understand, bimbo said.

Staying in His will is beyond His will, when you know what it take to stay in His Will, the result will go beyond your understanding. Our marriage is an examples of the result of knowing how to stay in HIS WILL, which is Beyond HIS WILL! Christiana said and hugged her husband

The End
