I met Chris on Christian Mingle July 29 2011. I signed up June 29th for three months, Chris signed up two weeks later and only for a month. I believe that if I had not signed up for three months we would have just missed connecting with each other. So I am thankful to our Lord and Savior that He had me sign up for three months.
I basically asked the Lord to lead me to the right person that He has for me. Someone that I can spend the rest of my life with as my helpmate/soul mate and best friend, sharing the Word of God, praying and worshiping our God together.
Chris told the Lord, he was ready to meet that person that God had for him. He had the same desires to study the Bible together, worship and pray together. As we both have stood on His promises. Psalm 37: 3-4, 7 “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this for you. Be still before the Lord and wait patiently on Him”
We connected on our first phone call, we spoke on the phone for four hours the first night, and on our first meet, we knew we had something special. That night we committed to doing a forty day challenge to spend every day in His Word. God has used the Purpose Driven Life to minister to our hearts as well as united our hearts together. We knew after a week of being together that we were meant to be, it is the beginning of a life time of growing in the Lord together.
Chris and I right off the bat starting praying ad asking the Lord if we were supposed to be together to unite our hearts together, if we were not supposed to be together, the Lord would allow us to go our separate ways. We started doing a bible study right off the bat and prayed together, he would pray over me and I would pray over him. We continue to read the word together every day and pray together.
The Lord has mighty plans for us, our testimony of what the Lord has done in each of our lives. We can be a powerhouse for the Lord and His work, and we are ready for Him to use us for His glory and honor.
Sharing a love that we have desired our whole lives, October 9, 2011 Chris and I got engaged, our wedding is January 14th 2012. We believe meeting on Christian Mingle, was a divine appointment from our God. We thank Him everyday for allowing us to meet.
We want to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts that God used your site to allow our paths to cross. We are forever grateful and we are counting down the days until we are able to unite as one.
Psalm 28:7 “The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in HIM, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to HIM in song.”
Neh 8:10 ” The Joy of the Lord is my strength.”
