A STREET CALLED GRACE AND GLORY

It’s been a little over a week since I got married. For what most of you don’t know, it’s been a year since my husband proposed marriage to me. Quick story. When I was about 5 years my oldest brother lived with my husbands dad so very often, we were at his house. I have many memories of sleep overs, playing video games, skating and playing kitchen with his younger sister. No particular memories of Kobby (my husband) at the time. Then at age 8, I heard Kobby and his family had relocated to the United Kingdom and it was pretty much the end of my visits to their house.
Fast forward to 2005. One night I remember receiving a Facebook message from Kobby. We had quite a lengthy conversation. I was 16 then. Kobby mentioned that he was coming to Ghana couple of months later and for the first time I looked forward to seeing him. By then, I had developed emotions towards him. He was in Ghana for 3 weeks and I remember the night before he left he said ‘wait for me. I’d come back for you’.

Lol According to Kobby, when he returned to the uk, I stopped replying his texts after a while. Lol at the time I was trying so hard to be someone else’s wife but somehow Kobby and I reconnected in 2013 when he was getting ready to came to Ghana for his sisters traditional marriage. At this point we both were in really complicated situations but I remember looking at him at the engagement thinking to myself (that’s definitely my husband).

Honestly during that time, I was focused on building a firm relationship with God. I remember making promises to God about how I wanted to honour and glorify Him with my life. I remember telling God I didn’t want to have sex with any man till I got married. It wasn’t always easy. Sometimes I kept that promise out of religion but now I realise the only reason i could, was grace.

In 2014 Kobby called and said he was coming to Ghana the following year for our yearly international conference. In my mind we were only catching up so I paid no special attention to his intended visit. I had no idea He was coming to Ghana in 2015 with a ring.

It was not the proposal I had always dreamed of. Thanks to social media Perhaps he noticed my disappointment and said I’d make it up to you”. In my mind, ‘how?’. I was basically living in a world of fantasies. So much so that I didn’t realise every effort he made along the way. Planning the wedding initially was hectic. I felt like I was planning an international crusade by myself. I’d stress and fuss yet the only words Kobby would offer was ‘Gods’ got this’ My immediate response would be ‘you don’t know what you’re saying. We have to plan! I got so frustrated about nothing. Every time I complained about something not going the way I planned he’d say ‘God is fighting for us”. At a point it was the last thing I wanted to hear. I wanted to hear things like let’s do A B C, subtract W so we can find R. I stressed till I hit my breaking point. I did not know that just because I had chosen to walk with God was an invitation to walk on a street of grace and glory.
I have no words to describe our wedding.

  7. Wooow this is beautiful.A street of grace and glory indeed. I can relate to your story kukua, just that I hvnt landed yet.But its really beautiful how God works things for the people who put their trust solely in him. Iv learnt that nothing is done right without God. And iv also come to the realisation that the statement ” he makes all things beautiful in His time ” aren’t just words or a cliché. Indeed when you wait for Gods time, the joy you experience is unexplainable and unending.God bless you Kukua and God bless your beautiful union.keep walking on the street of grace and glory.

I am a living testimony Trust me, this is only the beginning. The Lord has honoured you above all. Just remember the same grace that brought you this far through your humility and submission will carry you on eagles wings. You are loved. God bless you Mr and Mrs.

Your testimony is an encouragement to me to trust in the Lord with all my heart and do not lean on my own understanding and in all my ways I should acknowledge Him to direct my path. From being a pretty lady with this innocent look, celibacy, etc. Girl u are an inspiration to us all. May God richly bless your life and union with your Fresh hubbby😍. I’ll pray for you so u can inspire young ladies to take this narrow path as I tap and await my testimony too of who God has chosen for my life to complete his work here on earth.🙏🏾Bless you girl!

  20. Hi Kukua,
    I soo admire you and i’m inspired. You are an amazing woman.
    God works in mysterious ways, He knows exactly what He wants for His children. I never go a day without worshipping Him because what He has done for his children is uncountable.
    God bless you and yours.
    My question is, I always pray at night but now i feel i’m drifting away slowly. I find it difficult to pray lately. How do i go about this?
    Thank you.

    1. Hi Beverly.
      I think everyone has high and low times in our walk with God but it’s very important to keep the consistency. So for instance everyday you pray at 11pm but you’re gradually losing the urge. If you do remember to pray at any point in time in the day make the commintement to pray. What’s important is the prayer and not necessarily the time of the day
