Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 7

It’s funny how the devil shows up Before and After a Miracle. Once you get

closer to your breakthrough, the devil becomes restless and seeks for every

means possible to ruin your joy. But how wonderful it is that we serve a

God of justice that sees and knows all things. A God that raises a standard

against the devises of the enemy. The devil might have thought he had won

but God was not about to fold his arms and let a silly text message, ruin a

beautiful relationship between George and Sandra. Tensions are high and

Fingers crossed as we anticipate what was about to go down that very

afternoon.

Immediately George read that single sentence that sent chills down his

spine, he removed his eyes from Sandra’s phone and tried to redirect his

focus back to what he was working on, but it was almost impossible for his

mind to completely ignore that text message. As a mature and reasonable man

that George was, he kept the information to himself and didn’t say a word

to Sandra who was busy cooking in the kitchen. Deep down in his heart, he

wanted to see her reaction when she returns and reads the text.

After about an hour later, Sandra returned to the livingroom to inform

George that food was ready to be served. He smiled and walked straight to

the dining table as Sandra brought the food from the kitchen and served

him. The meal looked absolutely delicious and George couldn’t help but

compliment her food. “This taste amazing, thanks babe” he said with a faint

smile and Sandra blushed afterwards. “You are welcome dear, I already ate

some in the kitchen while cooking so my tummy is a bit full. I will join

you if I get slightly hungry again” she replied and walked to the

livingroom to have a seat.

As Sandra walked to the livingroom, George observed her subtly as she took

her seat and picked up her phone from where it was lying. Immediately she

looked at the phone’s screen, her face changed instantly and looked as that

of a confused person. The atmosphere was quiet as she scrolled through her

phone in silence. George behaved as though he was engrossed in his food but

was actually watching her every move. No one said a word to each other for

about two minutes, till Sandra broke the silence.

“Hi Babe, uhrmm, I think I should share this with you because we promised

that we wouldn’t keep any secrets in this relationship” Sandra confusingly

said and walked towards George with her phone on her palm. George behaved

as though he knew nothing and immediately showed concern. “What’s that

babe? Is everything ok? Talk to me boo” he said in a concerned tone. She

had no idea that he already knew what she was about to reveal to him.

When Sandra got to where George was seated, she handed her phone over to

him and sat next to him at the dinning table. “Babe I just received a text

from a guy I used to know several years back. He was a friend to me but was

in a relationship at the time so we remained friends and didn’t take

anything further. I just received a message from him now saying he wants me

back. We were never in an intimate relationship when we were still in close

contact with each other. We were only friends then so it’s quite shocking

to receive this sort of message from him. I wouldn’t lie, I was attracted

to him then but that feeling and attraction died years back. We promised

each other that there would be no secrets in this relationship, that’s why

I feel it’s right for me to reveal this to you” she calmly said.

For the first time in George’s life, he crushed any remaining doubts he had

and gave a lady his 100% loyalty and trust. Deep down, he was scared that

Sandra would keep that little detail from him, but was amazed at how she

came clean and was totally honest to her Man and her Relationship. If he

was initially having any doubts about marrying Sandra, all doubts vanished

at that moment due to that tiny seed of honesty. It was after she was done

talking that he spoke for the first time.

“I love you so much baby, thanks for being honest about little things like

this, it means I can trust you with big things too. You are genuine and I

respect you even more now than I did before. I love you baby” George calmly

said and gave Sandra a passionate kiss on her soft lips. He didn’t reveal

to her that he already saw the text message.

George dusted everything beneath the rug and held her tightly as they

locked lips together. He later told Sandra to reply Dominic and handle the

situation however she deemed fit. He assured her that he trusted her and

would let her handle everything the way she felt was the best. Case closed!

That day was such a blessing in disguise for the two lovebirds because

their relationship became 10 times stronger afterwards. A text message the

devil intended to ruin them with, ended up making them more stronger and in

love with one another. It’s such a relief that the case ended almost

immediately it started. Praise God!

Days passed and it got closer to Sandra’s Golden Thirtieth (30th) birthday.

At that point in her life, she wasn’t bothered anymore if she clocked 30

and was still unmarried. For some strange reasons, she was no longer deeply

rooted into that fear she initially had of staying unmarried till age 30.

Sandra now loved her life and accepted every circumstance of her life

wholeheartedly. As the golden age drew nearer, she had no idea of the

surprise that laid ahead. God was about to surprise her but she had no idea

of what was coming.

It turns out that George bought a beautiful engagement ring immediately

after the incident that happened with Dominic. He kept it in his possession

waiting for the appointment time to propose to Sandra but never found the

right time to do so. As her 30th birthday drew nearer, he came up with an

awesome idea for the engagement.

It happened on the eve of Sandra’s 30th birthday. She wasn’t feeling too

well so George when down to her house and drove her to his house so he

could take proper care of her that night. When she arrived at his house,

she took her bath, ate and drank some medication she came along with before

dozing off to sleep. There wasn’t any time for them to talk or bond due to

Sandra’s health condition.

As Sandra slept that night, he gently inserted the ring into her finger and

kissed her forehead before retiring to the guest room to sleep there.

Fortunately, she slept all night without waking up in between sleeps so as

not to notice the shinny ring on her finger. Everything was still unknown

till the next morning.

When Sandra woke up that morning, she was feeling better and did her normal

stretch. She was still feeling sleepy but knelt down to pray to God because

it was her 30th birthday. She bowed her head and said; “Dear Lord, thank

you for everything. There are so many reasons for me to cry today but I

choose not to dwell on those reasons, but rather to dwell on the reasons

that put smiles on my face. I thank you for life and for every wonderful

person in my life today. I specifically thank you for my loving partner

George. I would spend forever praying if I begin to list out everything I

am grateful for today. I love you so much Lord and Happy birthday to me.

May today bring me more joy than sorrow. Amen!” She calmly said.

When Sandra was done praying, she had no idea that George was at the door

listening to every word. He remained unnoticed till she opened her eyes and

was about getting up when her eyes caught the huge shiny object that was in

her finger. It took few seconds before her mind could wrap around the fact

that it was an engagement ring.

Immediately Sandra figured out what was going on and was about screaming,

George’s voice interrupted from behind saying; “Babe, will you do me the

honor of being my wife?”.
