Will of God(A Christian Love Story) Episode Two

Written by: Joy Chidera Albert

“What do you feel?” She asked.

“I feel joy, peace, and love.”

It has been three months since the whole Daniel episode happened, and I haven’t been able to get over it. God wouldn’t just let me be concerning this matter. And here I was, being questioned by my childhood friend, Desola.

“Joy,” She called, startling me. I was lost in thought again.

“Yes, did you say something?” I asked with a smile. I guess she wasn’t buying any of this. Hmm, who would believe me now?

“Have you even prayed about this?“ She probed.

“Yes, I already did.” I sighed.

“Okay. Now tell me, what did God say?” She asked and sat down. I followed suit.

I heaved a sigh of relief before going on. At least, someone’s willing to hear me out.

“Desola, here’s how it all started. God had been speaking to me about him before the day we met just that he didn’t reveal his face to me then.” I paused.

“Okay?” she asked impatiently.

“Please hear me out,” I said and she nodded. ‘When I finally met him, I knew he was the one. I wasn’t so sure at first, so I went back to God in prayer and He confirmed it.” I paused again letting that sink in. She gave me a look that said I could go on. So I continued.

“In as much as there are a lot of things that are still unclear, I can’t put off this indescribable peace I feel inside of me. There’s always a burst of joy on my insides every time God speaks about him or I think of him. I don’t understand this, but I can’t put it off.” I sighed deeply, waiting to hear her response. I’m tired of fighting. Hopefully, God speaks through her, because it would be nice to hear from someone else.

“Desola, you’ve been staring at me for five minutes now without uttering a word. You don’t believe me also? Come on, you’re the only Christian friend I have. If I’m wrong, let me know and I will accept it in good faith. Desola.” I held onto her hand looking slightly dejected. After waiting for about two minutes, she finally spoke up.

“Joy,” She called, her face expressionless.

“Yes,” I asked, sitting at the edge of my seat.

“You are not wrong.” She paused a bit before continuing. “When God gives you His will in anything, there are three things you will notice: love, joy and peace—the first three fruits of the Spirit in Galatians 5 vs. 22-23. That’s one sure way of knowing if something is God’s will. There will be love, joy and peace. And so anytime you notice the loss of joy and peace concerning any matter, it’s either God is not involved or He wants you to exercise a little more patience and pray more. So, Joy, I believe you, but I would like to join you in prayers so you could have more confirmations if you don’t mind”

I nodded.

She continued, “Yeah, it’s always important to have the testimony of witnesses. I mean, to have other people confirm it with you.”

“Yeah, sure. I completely understand you. Thanks so much. You’ve been such an amazing friend. Thanks for believing me.”

“I believe God in you and I won’t lie to you.” She said and hugged me. We disengaged and sat down back.

“So have you told your parents?” She asked. It seemed like cold water had just been poured on me.

“Not yet,” I answered, looking sideways.

“It’s okay. I understand. Be very sure of your convictions before telling them. Okay?”


“So tell me about this new guy,” She asked, hitting my hand playfully.

I blushed.

2I don’t think I know who you’re talking about,” I replied, feigning ignorance.

“Ahn-an, the one who made your heartbeat skip.”

I burst out laughing. Desola no go kill me today. (Desola will not kill me today)

“Okay. He’s handsome.”

“Um-mm,” She sounded, interrupting me.


Daniel is seated on the balcony of his house. He appears lost in thought as he mumbles some words to himself.

“Mrs Fragene is such a nice woman. She took me in like her own son. But, why am I still thinking about this? It’s been three months now. Hmm, neither can I get Joy out of my mind. Our meeting was definitely not a coincidence; it was orchestrated by God. Or did God actually send me to Lucy Brown’s Estate to get a wife? Come to think of it, I haven’t even phoned Joy since then. We only spoke once and that was it.” I sighed and ran my hand through my hair as I kept pondering over the events of the past. “All this is so mind-boggling.”

“God, why did you send me to Mrs Fragene’s house?”

I was waiting for you to ask me that son.’” God responded in the most gentle way, startling me.

“Oh really? I’m sorry I didn’t ask. So why did you send me there?”

Hmm, for everything there’s a purpose so you must always inquire about the purpose for and behind each thing.”

I nodded and sighed.

He continued, “I sent you there because of Joy.”

I was shocked and happy at the same time. I didn’t see that coming.

“Joy?” I asked smiling.

Yes, son.” He chuckled.

“Uh, why, if I may ask?’’ At this point, it felt like I was standing on my tiptoe, not wanting to miss a single word.

“She’s your wife.” He answered casually. I couldn’t believe what I heard; I had to literally look around to be sure I heard well. Silly me.


“Seriously, son.” He chuckled. I guess it is because of my reaction.

I stayed mute for some minutes trying to process what I just heard, at the same time not too convinced I had heard well. So I asked for signs and confirmations at that point.

Three weeks later, God gave me the signs and confirmations I needed to be fully convinced. He was really patient with me. Hmm, now, what next? What do I do from here?
