Who says you will not get married or get that blessing?

  • I have a story to tell you this day! It is a true story, because it happened to someone I know! It happened to my elder sister!
     
    I write to you this day, by the Spirit of God, whatever dream God has placed in your heart, it will be accomplished, if you refuse to give up!

     
    I really want to encourage you that you will become exactly who God wanted you to be, irrespective of the seemingly disadvantages.
     
    And this is not about marriage alone!
     
    Who says you will not nurture your baby in your arms?
     
    Who says you will not get that job?
     
    You see, God specialises in birthing possibilities from impossibilities.
     
    God has a way of confounding the wise and the experts!
     
    I have sister, an elder sister.
     
    Beautiful sister, beautiful spirit, creative mind, but handicapped! She is on crutches!
     
    From when she was less than six months, Polio hit her hard, and no hospital could help her at the time.

I am the first man in the house, but I have four other sisters and a brother.
     
    Ever before she reached the age of accountability, a disadvantage had set in. She could not move around like other children.
     
    One by one, all of us got married except my sister.
     
    It looked like it was never going to happen because of her handicap.
     
    I gave up myself. Really!
     
    While I helped others across the world, counselling everybody, praying for them and amazing testimonies of established homes filtered in, I just couldn't seem to help my sister. I prayed for her, counselled her, and encouraged her.
     
    But you know what? She never gave up!
     
    The irony of it is that she specialises in making wedding gowns of all types, so while she kept sewing wedding gowns for others, she never wore one!
     
    She made several wedding gowns and even attended weddings of her clients, despite her handicap, but she never allowed despondency or depression to set in.
     
    She would call me and ask me “I hope you are preparing for my wedding?” And I will retort, “Sister, which wedding now?”


     
    She kept saying she would get married to any body that cared to listen.
     
    And in my natural mind, I wondered how! My heart knew God could do it, but my head wondered how.
     
    But Pastor, you are supposed to have faith!
     
    Yes, I had faith, but after a while, I had no faith again, unless you want me to lie!

     
    You need to know she is forty -four years old this year!
     
    That is why I love the scripture that says:
    Romans 3:3-4 (KJV)
    For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
     
    It is about your faith and what you believe and not what others believe for you!
     
    Nobody can believe God for you.
     
    You have to believe God for yourself!
     
    Many times, that person who you says he is in agreement with you is full of doubt for you!
     
    So, my sister kept saying she would get married. She didn't care what anybody felt.
     
    Some even reported her to me; “Talk to you sister, what is all this marriage talk she is engrossed with?
     
    And then when I call her, she would go like, “They think I won't get married abi? You will soon see my husband!”
     
    She never gave up! Yes, there were down moments and she would cry and call me and I would pray for her.
     
    Mark 9:23 (KJV)
    Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
     
    Well, the great news is that my sister got married to a wonderful man on 26th and 27th August!
     
    She eventually made her own wedding gown!
     
    Never give up. You have nurtured some other children, you will nurture your own. You have served other men, men will serve you! You have counted other peoples' millions, you will soon count your own!
     
    And you can see some pictures right here
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
    And so, I want yo to know that there might have been a delay, there would never be a denial.
     
    Keep trusting, keep believing, never give up on God and you know what, you will soon rejoice!
     
    We love you!
