We here this a lot. A Calvinist single
man or woman tells us how hard it is to meet that someone special for them with beliefs that match their own. It’s not that they don’t participate in Calvinist singles group. They go to church. They accept invitation to meet others in their congregations that could be a potential match. It just hadn’t worked yet.
Read on about Tim and Carrie’s story, the challenges they met and how they are now success story.
Carrie tells us: I signed up for Sovereign Grace Singles almost a year ago. It was a little discouraging at first. In fact I had some pretty interesting experiences. I don’t mean that in the best of ways.
However, I decided to take advantage of just getting to know people trusting that the Lord would bring the right gentleman my way. I actually loved the profile questions because they eliminated a lot of doctrinal differences. It was in September that I clicked on Tim’s profile. I knew I had to message him almost immediately. We had absolutely almost the same story. In fact it sent me to tears.
So after 3 days, I built up enough courage to message him. Much to my surprise, he messaged me back within minutes. Wow! As we messaged back and forth, we realized how we agreed almost a hundred percent doctrinally.
This was HUGE!!!
Knowing that ultimately this is what a relationship will thrive on. The more we messaged each other, the harder it was to be content with just the website. It was not always user friendly and it has some quirks. As time went on, it was clear we were honestly who we were saying we were. We decided to take the next plunge and Facetime.
After that we began…we began to talk regularly…everyday!!! In fact we haven’t stopped. He asked immediately to pursue me toward marriage which I accepted. We definitely believe that the Lord divinely orchestrated our meeting and the Lord used Sovereign Grace to unite us. We are kindred spirits. God is so gracious and we are beyond grateful.
Wedding is February 29th!
Thank you Sovereign Grace!!!!!
