Fifteen years of bed wetting is not a cup of tea but a sponge full of bitter vinegar mixed with embarrassment and remorse. On this note, Brother Paul Ssajjabi of Masajja- Wakiso stood tall before the house of believers to testify for the God of Prophet Abraham to Richard Bisaso, whose mighty hand evicted that shameful vice out of his life.
Brother Paul narrated that for all his life, he had been a victim of bed wetting. He said this went on from his childhood to his teenage years. He ascertained that, this habit brought along worry, fear and discomfort in his life.
As a matter of fact, what made this situation so complicated was the fact that he is the eldest child in his family and his young siblings who were not bed wetting were supposed to look at him as an epitome and as an inspiration.
He recollected that in such a disgracing state; he always questioned himself, “How will my siblings see me take out my mattress dripping with urine?’’ Brother Paul expounded that with this shame surging all around his conscious, he was occasionally forced to hide his wet bedding’s, instead of taking them outside for sun drying.
Sometimes, he turned the mattress upside down and this brought about holes in his mattress, not to mention rusting to the metal bed that it finally broke down.
Brother Paul recalled when he joined boarding section while in senior four. Rather than being grateful that his joining boarding section was for the betterment of his grades.
He was so worried of bed wetting in his dormitory, with fear that he will end up being the talk amongst his schoolmates all around the school.
As the Psalmist says in Psalm 23:4: Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for you are with me. True indeed is this confession; because even in the valley of shame and worry, God did not forsake Brother Paul.
After crying and pleading to God to take away this garment of embarrassment from him, he was privileged to meet the Prophet of God Abraham Richard Bisaso.
In this encounter, Brother Paul told the Prophet about his embarrassing state and asked God to seek him out of it. Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the Prophet prayed for him.
It is without doubt that God granted this prayer request because that stubborn demon of bed wetting lost its grip over Brother Paul.
It is now a year and Brother Paul has never bed-wetted again. He is free and settled for no one can ever take away the freedom Christ gave to him. Glory and honour go back to the One that takes our shame away – Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!
