“THAT NIGHT IN ROOM 401″(Part 29)
©Opeyemi Akintunde

The  best day of my life came, the day Mercy turned 25. It also turned out to be her wedding day. And guess who she got married to, Pastor James and Joyce’s only Son…

It was my free day, Daniel had come to pick me up from the prison, and he took me home, Joyce had picked our cloth, as we were going to be putting on the same attire as the parents of the couple…

Daniel went on his knees and proposed to me again… “My Grace, my life has been joyful with you in it, even as our daughter is leaving us today, I will like to remarry you again.

I don’t regret all we have been through… I know some day, a miracle will happen, but even if the miracle doesn’t happen your being alive is enough miracle for me.”.

I couldn’t find words but I knew I had to say something…

“The devil tricked me into believing that I could not find love with you, I started looking for love elsewhere, meanwhile you are the definition of love, I thank God for giving me a second chance with you, thank you for forgiveness, thank you for endurance and thank you for Love”…

……………………………………………..

“My Daughter Mercy,  Don’t repeat my mistakes Avoid sin especially adultery like a plague,  When you fall into sin,  And you refuse to repent of it,

Your life could end up as a song of lamentation Which was my case…

“How lonely lies Jerusalem, once so full of people, Once honored by the world, she is now like a widow The noblest of cities have fallen into slavery All night long, she cries,  Tears run down her cheeks, Of all her former friends, not one is left to comfort her Her allies have betrayed her and are all against her now…       (LAMENTATIONS 1:1-2)

Never take the Grace of God for Granted, Because though Mercy may speak There is always a repercussion for our actions, Mercy only makes it less grievous. I love you and I pray you turn out better than I did…         Your mother, Grace…

This was the wedding frame I gave to Mercy on her wedding day, and I begged her to put it in her living room as a daily reminder of the story of her mother’s sin, shame and redemption. I never wanted her to repeat my mistake.

As I  danced at the wedding reception , tears flowed from my eyes, I am sure some onlookers would have thought it was because of the fact that I was still to return to my prison room after the wedding that made me cry, but no, I was weeping in gratitude to God for his big show of mercy.

Yes! I received Mercy, I deserved death as my punishment, but rather mercy gave me all these:  MERCY made it possible for me to still be alive till that time despite having so much bloodshed on my hands, I was only receiving punishment for my bloodshed, just like David who couldn’t build God’s temple because there was a lot of blood on his hands

 Mercy also restored my marriage,

 Mercy made my Glory and stars to be restored,

 Mercy made it possible for me to still be blessing the world with my music despite being in prison. There are a lot of talented singers in prison like me, but they have been silenced.

 I was still fulfilling destiny, as at the day of my daughter’s wedding, I had released 2500 songs and I had written 10 books. Proceeds from my book is used to help the less privilege

 Mercy further made it possible for me to give birth to my own child, and today I am witnessing her wedding…

 Mercy made it possible for me to be surrounded by good and covenant friends, Pastor James and Joyce, his wife.

Was the Lord not good to me? The prison doors could not stop God from showing me Mercy, I just had to pay a little for the 12 souls that died through me…. I was a product of Mercy….

Did I believe that someday, I might receive a bigger level of Mercy and be given a presidential pardon to be out of Prison, I believed, because the Love of my Life, the Gift God gave to me in form of a human named Daniel had promised to keep writing to the presidential office begging for my release…. So Yes I believed, that My Miracle was going to happen…. To be continued

My Miracle happened! Yes it happened.  The day started like every other day in prison, I had woken everyone up with my loud voice of praise. We did our devotion.  By that time I had spent 35 years in Jail. I was 66 years of age

We had just gotten a new president elected into power just a week earlier. We were told the president was coming to our Prison to visit us. We had to sweep, clean, cut the grasses and looked neat.

After the President had a general meeting with us all, encouraging us, he specifically asked to see me.

The moment I entered the Chief Warder’s office, I was surprised to see the President rise up to his feet to greet me. I was humbled, so I bent to greet him too…

“Ma, it’s a great privilege meeting you after so many years, I am one of the products of your ministry, I gave my life to Christ under your song ministration, about 40 years ago, when I was just 8 years old.  As an orphan, your music were instructions that shaped my life, making me avoid evil at a young age.

Your song was like a motherly voice to me. I was there the day you received your jail sentence, I was the young boy who rushed to hug you as you were taken to the van….

That day I heard someone say by my side that the only way you could ever be free was if you received a presidential pardon…

I made up my mind that day I was going to be President someday, in other to have you released. That dream has come to pass… I have become the president of our country.

For this reason ma, I came here personally to give you a presidential Pardon to have you released from Jail…”

It felt like it was a dream, and I needed someone to wake me up… the president was weeping as he hugged me so tight just like he did 35 years ago as a little boy…

Dreams if pursued do come to pass…

At 66 years of age, I got out of prison. Mercy got me out of Prison, Grace brought me out of prison, and guess what the Bible verse that states that “Eyes have not seen ,nor  ear heard, neither has it entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath Prepared  for them that Love Him” in ! Corinthians 2:9 was exactly how my life turned out…

The Lord started a new chapter out of my life after my years in prison… one of the great things God did for me was that I thought Mercy was going to be my only child,  but getting out of Prison, God gave Daniel and I a set of twin boys at the age of 68.

My story got better and full of Grace, just like my name from that time.  I was able to reach more lives , as I started travelling around the globe, sharing my story of how one night in room 401 almost ruined my life…

This new Chapter of my life is also a story-filled phase of my life…

Favour, Mercy and GRACE found me.
