Sister Charity was a hard working and spiritual devoted young lady. She was well respected within the village community while nursing the children of her aunt. The aunt was a fearless woman who was a very close friend of my mum and she dedicatedly nurtured sister Charity with good morality, godly fear and faithfulness.
However after several years spent with her aunt in the village, an emergency family meeting was summoned by her kindred which later prompted her to returns back to her place of nativity. While staying with her parent and families she was persuaded to lured into marriage which she blatantly abhor because she acknowledged that God was preparing a befitting life partner; an handsome and spiritually endowed man of integrity for her.
She vividly affirmed that her time for marital breakthrough isn’t yet imminent, hence patience, perseverance, faithfulness and hopeful unto God for his perfect will partner is her uttermost desire. Though in her late 25-27 years she looks gorgeous, tantalizing, and pretty and freshly like tomatoes but she was internally sorrowful.
Inwardly she looks pale, worrisome and perplexed. In fact she cursed the day she was born due to the intensiveness of marital pressure imposed by her parent and guidance but unfortunately she decided thrown-in the towel and eventual yield unto their request.
Few months later; wedding was concluded and years later the conceptions, death of her husband and the outcast. At this moment she is a widow struggling under an hectic sunshine and intensive rainfall in order to cater for the needy of her children.
Presently none is ever ready to support her, she is completely cut-off from families, friends and in-laws because obedient is better than sacrifice and whoso breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite. (Let Stop Here).
- The Danger Of Marital Pressure In Life Of Spinsters:
Yes; i knew you are already due for marriage but i would advise you meditates below marital references before yielding unto marital pressure because marriage isn’t fun or entertainment centre but rather a place of proving your ministry. And if you ignorantly walk-off from godly standard or perfect timing due to marital pressure; please don’t ever blame God.

My sister, apparently i can’t compelled you to endured marital pressure imposed by your family and probably due to peer pressure as a results of your mates & colleagues who are already married with Children but would advice you cast your sight unto God in “Hopefulness” for greater good of your future and eternity.

- The Reason To Be Hopeful — The Four Burning Candles:
There were 4 candles who slowly burned. The ambiance was so soft, one could almost hear them talking. Then the first candle said; “I AM PEACE but the world is full anger and fighting and nobody can keep me lit” Then suddenly the flame of “Peace” went out completely.
The second candle said “I AM FAITH but i am no longer indispensable. It doesn’t make sense that i stay lit another moment”. Instantly a breeze softly blew “Faith’s” flame.
Sadly the third candle began to speak: “I AM LOVE but people don’t understand my importance so they simply put me aside and they even forget to love those who are nearest to them”. And in twinkle of an eye “Loves” flame went out.
Suddenly a little child entered the room and behold the three unlit candles and uttered “Why are not you burning? You are supposed to stay lit till the end” and afterward the child began to cry, then the Fourth candle answered: “Don’t be afraid for I AM HOPE and while i am still burning we can re-light the other candles” And with a shinning eyes the child took the candle of HOPE and lit other candles.
Nevertheless; the greatest of these is LOVE but the flame of “HOPE” should never go out of your life, because with hope unto God’s perfect timing for your marital breakthrough “you can still live with Peace, Faith & Love.
I employ you always be hopeful that someday you shall surely get there because when you are hopeful of getting married at the “Lord’s appointed time” inwardly you will be revived. One of the source of my inspiration is been Hopeful irrespective of any ugly situations because i am an overcomer.
Hope is a vital ointment for been spiritual active because WORRIES & PRESSURE kill faster than Ebola disease. Yes, Stop worrying yourself: “Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy”. One of the enemies of progress in life is worry.
And no one can actually amount to anything great in life simply by worrying on daily basis. “Cast your care (worry) upon Him for He cares for you” is what the scripture says Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
So, What Other Assurance Do You Need Apart From This? I degree into your destiny as you begin to hand over your marital worries unto God, may you continually be seeing the mighty move of His hand over your life in Jesus’ Name.
Dear God, you are my light and salvation. You are my hope. Please come into my life and forgives me of all my wrong doing, faithless, doubt, fear and healed all my worries. Strengthen my hope unto your perfect timing for my marital breakthrough and help me be an instrument of your love and cause your light to shine on others through me in Jesus Name.
