It is true that whatever God says would be, would definitely be. Our lovely couple, Ayomide and Michael has passed through lots of test in confirming the intent of their feelings for each other but right now, right here, they can boldly say, they have a testimony to share. Let us sit back as we read their insightful Love story.
Our Beautiful Beginning
“For some reason I don’t know, I felt a strong conviction to text Ayo. I was like no way that cannot happen (no way choir girl, am not going to be the next topic). I don’t even talk to her and she doesn’t even look like someone that might want to live the kind of life I have chosen to live. But the conviction kept getting stronger as I try to fight it….. shortly before then, the Holy Spirit has been telling me it’s time to get married and I have always replied ‘get married to who’, I don’t even have a girlfriend. The only girl I can get married to just broke my heart months ago, but this instruction to get married kept coming. I think it was June 6, 2013 around noon. I was relaxing on my couch meditating on random stuff, suddenly I felt the strong urge again to text her. After some deep thoughts I talked myself to text her “hello” but then I realized I don’t have her number. Fortunately, I remember I was given a list of names and numbers of all singles to type into church database months before then. I immediately start the search for the list. I found the list got her number and texted her “Hello”. Then comes the anxious wait and to make matters worse she did not reply me immediately. All kind of thought ran through my head… oh no, I’m screwed, I messed up big time, why did I text her? In the midst of the commotion going on in my head my phone vibrated and it was a message from Ayo, she said hello and from then we became chat buddies and we realized we have so much in common in terms of future plans, aspiration, dreams, background, likes and so on…. I remember whenever I tell Ayo my plans for the future and some things I wrote in my book many years back, she will reply me by saying stuff like “stop it ooo you’re stealing my dreams or I stole words from her mouth”. There was this particular day I was in shower and the Holy Spirit said to me when you meet the woman say this to her and this is what her response will be. Believe me I thought about what the Holy Spirit said I should say and I concluded no girl will marry me if I say this to her, they will only tell me I am out of my mind. Telling Ayo did not even cross my mind because I will argue if anyone had told me she will be the one to give me the right answer….. fast forward I finally told her and to my surprise she gave me the exact answer the Holy Spirit told me. We had our ups and downs but God’s words will always be true and that’s why I am privileged to write this. In Ayo, God gave me more than I asked for. To me, she is a reflection of her name “Ayomide” (my joy has come)
“I am not exactly sure where to start, but on the day I got a text from Dami I was surprised because he rarely talks to anyone (female), let alone me. When I got the text message on whatsapp I was very surprised. I immediately told my coworker at the time I am not sure why this guy is texting me. Anyway, that fateful message got us sending messages back and forth for a while. Everything was good. By the way I did not think anything of it at this time and mainly because my heart was somewhere else and I just didn’t see “Us” in the picture. Fast forward, couple of weeks later I was going through an emotional and painful period at this time and I was also praying, but Dami and I were still communicating. One day he told me he needed to talk to me about something. When he sent me this message in my head I was thinking ooooooooo! I already know where this is going so I tried to avoid the “TALK”. I was still very much in prayer during this period. Then finally I gave in and was like okay, well let me hear what he has to say, then we made plans to meet up. When we met, he had on basketball shorts and a t-shirt. The first thing I noticed were his ashy knees (lol) and immediately I was starting to think oh no, I don’t do ashy knees. Anyway, he started talking and I was listening to everything he had to say, and at the end he asks me what my thoughts were. I was like, well, I do not have a problem with everything you have told me, but I have to pray about it first and he said of course that’s not a problem. Then the prayer began…
I prayed for a man of integrity, a man that I could trust and follow his lead, a man that would love me despite my many flaw in the way God has commanded, a man that is God fearing and will help me grow in my relationship with Christ, god gave me Michael Damilola Ajiboye.
