Pastor Mrs Faith Oyedepo, the wife of Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith Chapel International, shares how many suitors proposed to her and how she responded to them before she finally settled with her husband. She also shares why singles must not be intimidated by the achievements of others. Read her exact words below.
I have shared severally, how there was a time in my life when I couldn’t even afford to say I will walk into a store to buy a new dress for myself but I was always excited. I will tell the young people in our home, please go to BDB (Bend Down Boutique), select, bring them back home, wash it, iron it and the gator is standing out. The person sitting next to you, you can’t see the label on the person’s shirt, you don’t come out and say see my watch now. Why must you buy a new watch on credit and cover it with your suit? it doesn’t make sense.
You visit a friend and that friend has just bought a fridge and then you begin to have heart palpitation, “fridge, fridge, thermocool” Why must you freeze your destiny? You will get there! Read also, Member gifts Bishop David Oyedepo’s Pastor brand new car worth fifty five thousand dollars
Pastor Faith Oyedepo shares how she responds to her suitors before she met her husband, Bishop David Oyedepo
Pride comes from the heart, from the thoughts. This is one area where people have issues in their relationships. You are believing God for marriage and no man speaks to you that ever worths consideration. Even if you are going to say no to that person, do it with respect, dignity because you never know maybe tomorrow you will need that person’s assistance.
Ever before I met God’s servant and the issue of marriage came up, there were quite a number of other brothers who had spoken and proposed to me about marriage but thank God He gave me the understanding and the grace to enjoy His presence so God gave me the grace to be able to know when to say yes and when to say no. I treated each of those brothers with respect, honour and dignity; I never wasted their time, once they spoke, I’ll say brother thank you very much, I don’t think so, God bless you and lead you in the right direction.
Sisters, please don’t waste their time. Someone spoke to you about marriage and you know your answer is no, don’t say “later, I am coming when actually you are going.” Young men also, you want to ask for her hand in marriage, don’t waste her time for God’s sake, don’t keep visiting, when you know you have something to say, say it.
