Like a thief in the day you appeared. It was like seeing a ghost, a man that had risen from the dead.
I saw you, at first you looked almost peaceful, on closer inspection you looked far from peaceful. The last 3 months has obviously taken its toll on you, you were skinnier, and your odour was far from pleasant. Leah embraced you in disbelief, could it really be daddy?
I had spent the last 3 months mourning you as if you were dead to me, and rightfully so you should be, you should be dead to me and Leah. A few hours before, I had sent you a message cursing and swearing, after an armed robbery took place at my home with my baby there, second robbery within three months, and I believed that you had a hand in the first robbery and now convinced that the second one reeked of you as well.
It was all too coincidental that you had called me a few days before for my birthday, started to pretend to be the long lost faithful father and weep about how you lost the best women ever, and then my home gets robbed. I am certainly not the naive women you met 5 years ago.
And so here you appeared the day of the robbery, to prove your innocence, yet we both know you are far from innocent. I was certainly not the damsel in distress you probable hoped for, there was no running into your arms to come back, instead there was allot of grovelling from you… grovelling about what a bad decision you had made, how the baby she (the women you left me for) was carrying was not yours, how you broke up with her and she could never be the women I am, or was to you, how you were determined to win me back against all odds. I had to laugh, not in this lifetime my dear, or any after. You were a sinner and worshiper of evil and my faith saw through you.
Of course there still many unanswered questions and now that I had you where I wanted you, I intended to have those questions answered, another prayer answered. My faith in God grew even stronger. God was going to open my eyes to so much more. Your girlfriend, absolutely heartbroken at the fact that you denied her baby was yours, decided to show you how quickly her loyalty changed. She explained in detail the items you returned with the night of the robbery, how you bought a crow bar and other tools in preparation the day before. Wow… I always had my suspicions … only now it was real… you were the one that stole my car and robbed from my children, you robbed from your own child… Wow… You really are a man that sold his soul to the devil, no Godly man would ever consider such acts, no matter how desperate life got. I still wish you well Mr Simelane, I pray over your evil actions, that they may not harm me and my children. Psalm 91 resonates within me every minute, of every hour of every day that I am blessed to rise and experience Gods mercy and grace around me. No weapon formed against me shall ever succeed as I walk in the Kingdom of our heavenly father, as I give my worship to the King of Kings. I am in God our Lord Jesus Christ’s hands, in this life and after!
