Yesterday Worship leader and Christian contemporary recording artist Kari Jobe took to social media with exciting news posting:

"I said YES!!!! Thankful to be swept off my feet by my amazing Cody Carnes. You won my heart and I gladly give it to you. You're my miracle. Can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you" Jobe posted to her Facebook, "You are strong, courageous, bold, romantic, Godly, sweet..and my man. I love you. I'M ENGAGED!!!! #CARNES2014"

Equally excited her fiancé, Cody Carnes, followed up with an Instagram post of his own; sharing a photo of the engagement captioned:

“Engaged to the incredible, beautiful, sweet, honoring, generous & loving @karijobe. My best friend. My teammate. My favorite. I've never felt more honored and loved. So excited to spend the rest of my life, hand in hand with this girl. WE'RE ENGAGED!!! #CARNES2014”

This time last year, Kari was reflecting on her life as a young, single, Christian woman in an interview at the K-Love fan awards. Her message to single ladies:

“God’s timing is perfect, you know, and everyone’s walking through things that they’re having to trust the Lord for His timing,” She went on,“My favorite scripture verse is Psalm 27:14, it says, ‘Wait on the Lord, be of good courage and He will strengthen your heart.’ So, I know that He’s had me wait, I’m in my thirties right now, you know, He’s had me wait because His timing is perfect.” She then continued,

“So, those of you girls who are listening and you’re single, God has a perfect man for you and it will be the best timing when it’s the right time and it’s God’s time,”

It appears that the “Majestic” singer’s wait is finally over.
