ISOKENE (STOP MY WIFE FROM SMILING) FOURTEEN

PART 14
ISOKENE
(STOP MY WIFE FROM SMILING)

By Opeyemi Akintunde

“Ding Dong, Dong Ding” was the sound I was hearing in my brain…I couldn’t even press the end button on my phone. All I did was to gently place it on the Table beside me. It was official I had lost my husband. The girl sounded so well cultured, articulate in her points, even though if the circumstances were right, I could have given her the right answers to her biblical citing…

I could have told her it was never in God’s plan for man to have two wives, or else he would have made Adam to have two wives or better still when Eve messed up, he could have created a new Eve for Adam.

I could have told her about David, that he been the man after God’s own heart had more to do with his relationship with God not his acquiring of wives.

I ought to have told her that David suffered a great deal for having so many wives. God’s intention was for him to build a dynasty; a dynasty where his generation will rule Israel from generation to generation, but because of his polygamy it stopped along the way.. I should have told her in capital letters that IT WAS POSSIBLE FOR A MAN OR HIS GENERATION TO MISS OUT IN GOD’S PLAN FOR THEIR LIVES as a result of polygamy….

I ought to have responded as regards Abraham that it was never God’s idea or intention for him to impregnate Hagar, and even when the opportunity came God asked him to send Hagar away….

“Yes! Hold on…” I thought to myself “ “That is it….I need God to speak to Henry to send Margaret away., Just like he spoke to Abraham to send Hagar away for Sarah’s sake” ….I said to myself as I jumped up so glad I had received the rhema to deliver my marriage or so I thought.

“That is the solution…” I kept saying to myself….

I was not going to accept the evil proposal.

I didn’t call Henry again as I set myself on a 40 days fasting and prayer asking God to speak to Henry to send Margaret away….but Nothing happened.

Henry neither called, but rather on the 40th day of my fasting he came back home. I was super excited as I felt God had answered my prayer but…

“Betty, I am sorry, you didn’t accept Margaret’s proposal. I thought things were going to work out among us, but guess you are proving hard… I am sorry, I will be moving in with Margaret, because she is pregnant with my baby and it is a baby boy and you know how much I have asked you to let us have another baby, maybe it will be a boy, but you refused. So I need to be by her side…. I am purposely telling you she is pregnant so that you can pray for her, because if anything goes wrong with her or the baby, I will ruthlessly hold you responsible “ He said before walking out of the house…

I couldn’t say a word, I just crashed into the floor and Wept….

God! Why? Why are you doing this to me…Please wake me if this is a dream, but unfortunately God didn’t wake me up, because it was reality?

For another month, I didn’t hear from Henry….

I took the best step for me to avoid depression and ultimately insanity that was knocking at my door vehemently…

I took my two daughters from school and we relocated to Houston, Texas to start a new life…

Wasn’t that better? Since prayer and fasting did not work for me…
