I’ve always been against online dating, but I strongly felt God urge me to sign up to a site. I fought it for a long time. I went to my Pastor with what I felt like God was saying to me and after praying together, she gave me the green light and felt it was a God-thing too. So, shortly after I gave in and signed up to Christian Connection. I paid for a month’s subscription and said to God, “You have one month and if I don’t meet the man You have for me, I’m done.” We shouldn’t give God ultimatums but I know He let this one go lol! I was extremely hesitant. The main reason for my hesitance was because I so badly wanted God’s will for my life and I didn’t want to be out of His Will in any way, especially in marriage.
Jayden was one of the very first men to reach out to me. At first I ignored him a little because he lived in another state and it just felt too hard. But, something kept drawing me back to this man. We ended up having our first phone conversation. The conversation went for SIX hours. We connected so well and the peace that surrounded us both was supernatural. We both knew we had to meet! We spoke for a few months and then Jayden made the trip from Sydney to the Gold Coast to meet me. It really was love at first sight. Godly love. A deep knowing that this was the will of God. After several months of flying back and forth and many phone conversations later, Jayden moved to the Gold Coast... and the rest is history! We have been together for almost a year! On a trip to Sydney, Jayden proposed to me in front of the Sydney Opera House. We are so thankful to Christian Connection for providing the platform for us to meet, and thankful to God for moving His hand and taking us both out of our comfort zone, into a deeper trust in Him that totally paid off! We are getting married in August this year and we are both so excited!
