Can you hear the violins playing? Marcus Gill is known on Facebook for encouraging Singles all over the world and giving them hope that one-day God will send them “The One” that he has set aside just for them. Marcus speaks from a place of experience and believes in every word in which he shares with his followers daily on social media, through his Books, Conferences, Memes, and Video blogs. His first marriage was a difficult one, but even after his divorce and the loss of his baby girl he trusted the Lord to give him a second chance at love and having a family of his own. Well during his single years, he encouraged so many others to hang in there and to not give up because in their waiting there is a blessing and one day they would be joined with their God given soulmate. I find it to be a special privilege to share that the waiting period has ended for my good friend Marcus Gill and on today he is not only sharing with more than a million of his followers, but with those all over the world that if you trust and wait upon the Lord you shall receive ALL that he has in store for you. Below is Marcus Gill and Dominique Cannon’s story that led up to their beautiful engagement.
Waiting isn’t always easy but it’s always worth it. I truly believe that God’s favor is going to increase on my life. According to the Bible, He who finds a wife, finds a good thing and obtains favor from the lord. The person that you meet must be the answer to your healing. If they can’t help to heal you, it’s extremely possible that they are not the one. Your God sent mate will be somebody who will make you forget about your past pain. They won’t remind you of it or even hold it against you. They will be the one who frees you! She helped me get free. I’m thankful for her life and I’m excited about our future.
I’m so thankful and blessed. I’ve waited a long time to have this feeling and it’s has certainly been worth the wait. I’m excited about marrying Ms. Dominique Cannon. Our story is really interesting, but divine would be the word that best describes it. We met for the first time back in 2006 when we both attended Winston Salem State University. We were not friends, but we had a lot of mutual friends via the University choir and church fellowships. I remember speaking to her on campus, greeting her with a simple hello. Her response was extremely dry and I vowed to never speak to her ever again. (LOL) I did just that. I moved to NY in 2009 and as I began to reconnect with my New York friends I realized that she was also mutual friends with people here too.
I was confused as to how she began living in New York at the same time that I moved here. I still never spoke to her. I then realized that her parents and grandparents were closely acquainted with my parents and grandparent through our church fellowships. What a coincidence right? It gets deeper; a few years later one of my former church members reached out to me and said, “Pastor Marcus I have someone that I’d like for you to meet” and she sent me a photo of Dominique. I said, “I know her!” And I asked the sister to make the connection. With no intentions of forming a Romantic relationship we became friends.
It wasn’t until 6 months later that I recognized that she was my wife. I had been speaking for a relationship conference in Baltimore and as I was amongst other men and their families I couldn’t stop thinking about her. I knew then, that I needed to stop being fearful and just ask her out! LOL! I did just that and we continued to build an even more solid friendship. The very special thing about our relationship is that we have actually been acquainted since we were babies; we just never knew it. It was discovered that we would sit together and participate in church together when we were toddlers due to the fact that both of our parents were teens when we were born and our grandparents would take us to church. It was the same church. All of these years we have been connected and just never knew. Our families re-connected through us and both sides lovingly approved. Thanksgiving 2016 to me was the perfect day to ask her to be my wife. I’ve been through so many things as it concerns relationships. I’ve been able to encouraged millions of people through my books, relationship conferences and social media about singleness and waiting for the right mate.
I chose to ask her to marry me on Thanksgiving Day because I’m simply thankful for God allowing us to come together for such a time as this. I can now testify of how God will deliver us from what is wrong and give us a chance to make it right. Waiting isn’t always easy but it’s always worth it. I truly believe that God’s favor is going to increase on my life. According to the Bible, He who finds a wife, finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord. She helped me get free. I’m thankful for her life and I’m excited about our future.
Marcus and Dominique would like to thank all of those that follow and support Marcus Gill International Ministries for all the love they have shown on their recent engagement. Thank you to Juanita Bynum for taking the time out of your busy schedule to congratulate the newly engaged couple and a special thank you to their parents for their continued love and support as they plan for their future together.
