YOUR MARRIAGE, A TESTIMONIAL TO GHANAIAN LADIES
In His time, in His time
He makes all things beautiful in His time
Lord please show me everyday
As you're teaching me your way
That you do just what you say
In your time
Words cannot describe the feeling that news about your impending marriage has brought to me and all young ladies in this country. I wish to inform you that you are not the only person celebrating your hubby, but every single lady who is also expecting same breakthrough.
When news broke out in mainstream and social media, I couldn't help but give God all the glory because alas, I know that our God never fails. He said in His word that it is not good for man to be alone and therefore, He would make him a helper suitable for him. Surely He has done just what He said. I have known you personally just a few years ago, but I can say with confidence that you are indeed a "Daughter of God", as inscribed on your car.
Many single ladies are at the brink of giving up their faith for a partner. The trauma of staying single despite having a well paid job, successful career and wealth is a great challenge for most ladies. The fear of never getting married, never being able to give birth, never being called a 'Mrs.' continues to be a dilemma for our ladies. To this end, a lady will prefer moving in with a man than stay single to avoid public ridicule. Society's perception of single unmarried ladies continually puts our women in a vulnerable state of giving birth outside wedlock with its associated domestic violence.
Your impending marriage has taught me three (3) things every lady should know whilst single
1. Build your career and personality - Most ladies believe marriage is the ultimate thing that
2. Look good and dress appropriately - One thing society has made people believe is that, if a
3. Impact other lives - One thing I have come to realize in this world is that, when you get busy with things of God - caring for the needy, less privileged, the vulnerable, God intervenes in your needs and your cares. Most ladies spend their times brooding over their single status and will hop from one church to the other, one prayer camp to the other, one mallam to the other, the daring won't mind snatching someone's husband or becoming a second wife or better still moving in with a man. All these, in the end, only end up adding up to the already heavy laden been borne by our ladies. You have been a source of inspiration to me, especially your Girl in Need Foundation, which has given life and a future to most deprived and vulnerable girls of school going age.
When I needed support to assist some teenagers for a programme, you willingly supported and went as far as giving us your platform via The Standpoint to tell all Ghanaians what our teenagers are going through. There is no such blessing as powerful as a child or kid telling you "God bless you". This marriage breakthrough, we know and believe is as a result of the prayers of those lives you have impacted reaching out to God.
Your marriage is going to be a great source of inspiration to all single ladies in Ghana. Maybe you are not seeing it yourself, but I tell you, its more than hosting a 1 million audience singles summit. I am particularly inspired, and so do other young ladies. Some ladies at age 35 are already thinking of giving up, but at 45 God has blessed you with such a wonderful man, what else can I say, but thank the Almighty God for your life.
I am truly inspired and can't wait for that day.
Congratulations big sister
