Better to marry to late than marry wrong: Evang Dr. Gospel Agochukwu gifts wife car to mark her birthday and shares his story
Six days to my wedding, the girl I wanted to marry said she was no longer interested.Our ministry was barely a year old with exploits and I wanted to marry as well. The wedding date was fixed for 16th April, it was to hold at Methodist Church Nigeria Owerri Diocese Cathedral.
Wedding cards had circulated to family friends and church members. Our passports were at the embassy for our honeymoon, all the church workers had sewn uniforms for what I called ‘wedding of the century’. But she just called me with her mother’s phone and said she did not love me anymore.
I did all that was humanly possible to see if the wedding could hold because of the shame I felt will come with the cancellation but no I couldn’t. I underwent emotional brouhaha; psychological trauma. I nearly ran mad. But mercy said No!
We had never met before. You just chatted me on WhatsApp; with your own story which I cannot share here. We were 2 wounded people trying to heal each other. And that is what marital love is. Family Members said No; Friends said No but God said Yes and against all odds we married and it has been a smooth ride to destiny.
Our Home is a blessing to both families. And to the world at large. We have had 5 kids within 4 years of marriage. A broken relationship is better than a broken marriage. Better to marry late than marry wrong. God’s No is not a rejection but a redirection. Costly mistakes of Destiny is Delivered through painful and bitter experiences. Like the way injection and bitter drugs fight sickness in the body, that’s how some destiny destruction deliverance is.
