Before marrying last July and announcing their pregnancy on Tuesday, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his singer wife, Ciara, let the world know they planned to build a relationship “Jesus’ way.”
In honor of the newlyweds expecting their first child together, The Christian Post is highlighting five ways the Wilsons honored God with their relationship.
1. Ciara Trusted God to Send a Man Like Russell
Before they became the Wilsons or Ciara even met her NFL star husband, the 31-year-old singer prayed for a man like him. In an interview with Essence magazine last May, she recalled trusting God to send someone matching his exact character.
“I decided to trust that God had a plan for me, and move forward one day at a time,” Ciara told Essence Magazine as the May 2016 covergirl. “I remember telling my friend the kind of guy I wanted: a God-fearing man with a very fun spirit who loves kids and would really, truly care for me. I was very specific because I do believe you can have it all.”
