Congratulations to Destiny child’s Michelle Williams who recently got engaged to Pastor Chad Johnson. According to the lovely bride to be, they met last year at a christian retreat and stayed in touch. The groom to be was encouraged by his friends to pursue Michelle and here they are today happily engaged. The happy couple are set to tie the knot this summer 2018.
It is so wonderful to see a Godly relationship especially in this day and age. According to their People’s magazine interview, they did everything the christian way. They were both done with dating and wanted to pursue a relationship that will lead to marriage. The groom to be reportedly told his bride to be that he was done searching upon meeting her. When Pastor Chad was ready to propose he sought the blessings and permission from those nearest and dearest to Michelle. What is also wonderful to see is that they are not having a 10 year engagement. I just do not understand long engagements. Traditionally engagements are supposed to be maximum 12 months. I understand that of course sometimes money can be an issue in regards to actually getting married but in the end it is not how much a wedding cost that matters. I have heard many elders saying, ‘marriage begins after the wedding’. It is so true and personally i think couples should work with what they have and let God bless it. It does not make sense to be engaged for 10 years while saving for a ‘Instagram’ style wedding.
I just love their testimony and i pray that it will encourage those that are still waiting and searching. What i have certainly learned from this is when they both gave up on relationships and doing things their own way, God showed up (not that He ever left lol) and did only what Yahweh can do. May they have a beautiful and blessed marriage 🙂
