Venus Raj to wed non-showbiz boyfriend this month
The year may be ending, but for beauty queen Venus Raj, it would mark a new chapter as she announced a December wedding to a non-showbiz boyfriend.
The Miss Universe 2010 4th runner-up revealed that her singlehood is meeting its end as she weds the man God wanted her to in a few days.
“There is a blessing in waiting. For eight years, God allowed me to be single. Since I have fully surrendered my life to Jesus, I have never entered into a romantic relationship. I asked Him to protect my heart and to keep it until the right man comes,” Raj wrote on her Facebook account.
While the beauty queen did not specifically say when she is set to wed her fiancé, she said that she will be spending the “rest of my life with this man of God” in a few days. She did not mention the name of her boyfriend.
“My prayer is that, together, we will journey towards God’s will in fulfilling His purpose for our union. We pray to glorify and honor Him in our lives. We have a future ahead of us; it will not be perfect, but God is the anchor that will keep us secure,” she said.
Speaking from experience, Raj also extended a message to people who are currently waiting for the right person and the right time to settle down with the person they love. She said that, by God’s will, it would be rewarding.
“If you are still single and praying to the Lord for marriage, please know that God hears your prayers and He knows the desires of your heart. The answer might be—wait, yes, or no—but one thing is for sure: He knows what’s best for you. Trust His process,” she said.
