Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 11
I sat down for some minutes. Then I stood up. I
thought she would come out, but she didn’t.
“She said ‘NO’…” I said to myself as I was leaving.
I looked back, then went forward. I even forgot my
Bible on the chair.
“She said ‘NO’….” I kept speaking to myself. I
almost cried, but I tried to calm down.
I went outside the gate. It was as if I had lost my
“She said ‘NO’…” I said again while walking into the
school compound. I was almost hit by a car as I
tried to cross the road. I narrowly escape that
It seems I heard someone called my name as I
walked to where I used to pray at a place where
there were trees. I didn’t bother to know who he/
I sat down on the ground with my suit. I didn’t
remove my shoes.
“She said ‘NO’….” I said as tears came out out of
“After 3 days dry fasting. After all the prayers and
groaning, she said ‘NO’…. Ah…God…” I shouted as
I didn’t really know what happened next, but I felt
my body on the ground, that was all I could
I saw that man I’ve always seen. He saw beside me
at the orchard
*”Impatience is a deadly disease that can cut short
God’s purpose for a man’s life”* he said to me.
I felt really guilty immediately about my action as I
bowed my head in shame.
“When God reveals a man’s glorious destiny to him
either by similitude of a thing or in the reality of His
Word, it is very important for that man to pray,
prepare and wait until the time appointed for it to
manifest. In this, you have done very foolishly” he
said with a frown.
“I am sorry… please, have mercy. I allow fear and
faithlessness to overwhelm me concerning this
sister. I was thinking she’ll accept the proposal of
bro. Paul before I’m permitted to propose” I said as
tears flowed down my eyes.
“When God has revealed a thing to you, He expect
you to patiently prepare, pray and wait for it to
mature. Remember, Joseph. He was 17 years of
age when he had the vision of his greatness. It took
13yrs for that vision to fully manifest. Even when he
helped the butler with the interpretation of his
dream, the butler forgot him, because, according to
Divine Timing, Joseph’s destiny was not due for
manifestation. When it was time, no power could
stop him from rising” the man said as I listened
“Now let me tell you something you don’t know
about Esther Michael. This my daughter has
received different proposals from different men,
both before she came to this school and while she
was in this school. Her beauty is what these people
are running after. In fact, your going to propose to
her makes you the number 20th person who has
attempted to propose but had failed” the man said.
I shouted as I held my head with my hands
“what….! I am sorry, please, have mercy upon me. I
got overwhelmed by my own fears and impatience”
“God has given her to you, but you may still have to
wait a little longer for the manifestation of the
promise. But, for your punishment, give me your
suit.” the man said and before I could say anything,
he pulled the suit from me.
“I will hold on to this for one month, afterwards I
will give it back to you” he said and left me.
“Ah… please, I’m sorry….have mercy on me…I
won’t do it again…” I pleaded with him, but he left
without looking back.
I understood what he meant when he took my suit
from me. I would be off the service of the Ministry
for one month. I cried.
When I opened my eyes, I saw myself at the
Students’ Health Centre with drips. A doctor was
trying to check my blood pressure.
Bro. James, sister Blessing, sister Faithfulness and
pastor Alex were all around.
“What happened? Why am I here?” I asked,
surprised how I got to the hospital.
“We saw you heading to the orchard. I called you,
but you didn’t answer. By the time we got to the
place, you were on the floor like a dead man. So,
we have to rush you quickly here. I called pastor
immediately and informed him about your been in
the hospital” bro. James said.
I saw my Pastor trying to sort things out with the
doctor, while sister Faithfulness sat by me. She
was looking at me suspiciously.
“It seems she knew what happened” I said within
“But GC, what happened?” Sister Blessing said. She
was almost crying.
“It is well” I said.
I was discharged the next day.
In the evening of the day I was discharged, bro.
James brought a bag containing food to me. He
said he saw it in my office with the tag “For My GC”.
When I opened the food flask, I saw a paper carefully tucked into it.
It was a letter.
What’s the content of the letter?
