THE HEART OF MAN PLANS HIS WAY, BUT THE LORD ESTABLISHES HIS STEPS.PROVERBS 16:9

At the beginning of this year my brother moved in with Mike and I. He felt the Lord calling him to leave Florida and start new in a different city in hopes for a change of scenery and workplace.

At the beginning of this year Camille was starting her second semester at Law school, determined to finish and become a successful attorney.

Rewind to December 2014, Niza, my sister was scrolling through her explore page and this gorgeous and creative girl popped up and she started following her which compelled Camille to follow Niza back. 

Fast forward to March 5th, 2017, Camille posted a piano selfie and my sister thought to herself..."This girl is absolutely gorgeous, a strong christian, what my brother needs and LIVES IN VA!" So she immediately thought I have to set her up on a blind date with my brother!" My sister messaged her and Camille said no...haha but minutes later after she had googled my brother said YES!!! Niza immediately texted Tariq and said "I set you up on a blind date and you better go." That night my brother didn't sleep. haha 

On March 10th, 2017 they went on their first date and it has been love at first sight since! If the Lord will's they will be married on January 6th, 2018!! 

Their incredible love story is a testimony to me of God's grace and sovereignty. Tariq and Camille had set plans and agendas but the Lord had different plans, far greater than they both could ever imagine. There were so many moving parts to their love story that began way before March 6th, and they had no idea. I encourage each of you to continue to wait on the Lord, whatever it may be wait. The Lord is good, his love and care for His people are far greater than anything we could ever imagine! 

"Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4
