THAT NIGHT IN ROOM 401 Part 27 by Opeyemi Ojerinde Akintunde

The flat was beautifully decorated, Daniel had done a good job with the house. The police officer stayed outside the door of the house as we walked in, I went into the kitchen, it was beautiful, the bedroom… was dimly lit, Aww… there were beautiful petals on the bed, a beautiful night dress was on the bed. Daniel had prepared in such a short time… He held me from the back…

“Do you know how long, I have waited for this day to come”…he was kissing my neck, I knew I was stinking, I needed a real shower or bath, but before that I needed to ask an important question…
“Daniel, how is it so easy for you to forgive me and go this extra length for me…”
“We are all sinners, and God has been forgiving us all over and over… have you forgotten the Lord’s Prayer… Forgive us as we forgive all those who trespass against us… I am grateful, I got another opportunity with you, my love…” he turned me to face him and said

“I miss your small lips”… I smiled as I remembered this was how Daniel was always having his way with me…
“Daniel, I know what usually follows this line, Let me freshen up…” I ran away from his grip, but he took hold of me before I could go far…
“You are always fresh! He pulled me and carried me to the bed….
—————————————————–

The next day, was a picnic with Pastor James, Joyce and their son. The free 3 days was the best time of my life in years, I had fun….

Part 28
(THAT NIGHT IN ROOM 401)

I had been feeling weak all week, I complained to Daniel, when he came around the day before and he had promised to get me very good malaria drugs. He came to the prison, unusually early, in order to give me my drugs. He had brought some homemade food, but I felt like throwing up on seeing the food.

I suddenly heard in my spirit, “Mercy has found you, you are carrying a baby, and her name shall be called “MERCY”.
The drugs fell from my hand and I faced Daniel with a blank look. I stood up and moved away from Daniel… Daniel was scared…
‘My Grace, what is it? Are you ok?”
“I heard something..” Daniel, I want you to take me out right now, I still have four free days in this year right?
Daniel nodded…but he was confused…

“Why?“ he asked
“I will Explain later, just take me out”…
I was cleared and I went out with Daniel. When I saw a signpost of a Lab, I told him to park right in front of it…Daniel still did not get the gist…

“You want to do a malaria test?” he asked… I refused to say a word.
On getting to the Lab attendant, I told him I wanted to do a blood pregnancy test, Daniel was shocked, but he suddenly became speechless as we both anxiously waited for the result…

The Result came out and it turned out “POSITIVE”…
Our Joy knew no bounds, I told him what I heard, and we kept the name “MERCY”
Seven months later, I gave birth to Mercy at the Prison hospital.
Daniel took over the child from me, he and MAMA were nursing her. Daniel always brought her for breastfeeding every morning and Evening….

I always spent my three free weekends with Daniel and Mercy. We travelled to different parts of the country. Daniel made it a duty that Mercy saw me at least three times every week in the evening…
My music was soaring, as the government kept sponsoring my music. God was ever faithful, releasing fresh songs for me.

Pastor James and his wife were covenant family friends, they also relocated close to the prison, as Joyce volunteered to assist in training Mercy in areas ,Daniel could not…
I never missed any important celebration in Mercy and Daniel’s Life, it was always arranged to be on one of my free days…

God still molded something great out of my life despite the limitation of the Prison doors…

THAT NIGHT IN ROOM 401 Part 29 by Opeyemi Ojerinde 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 it possible for me to still be blessing the world with my· Mercy made my Glory and stars to be restored,·
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….

Part 30
(THAT NIGHT IN ROOM 401)
©️Opeyemi Ojerinde Akintunde

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 passAt 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…

This story is mind blowing. God’s Grace is indeed abundant for her. God also showed her Mercy.
God’s Grace is still available if only we can come back to Him, no matter how grievous our sin may be, He will have mercy and deliver us.
God bless you immensely for this wonderful story.
