He’s a happily married man, now, but DeVon Franklin admitted that he never thought he’d actually choose an actress to be his wife.
The minister told an OWN “Life Class” audience at this year’s Megafest event that if it wasn’t for faith, he might have missed out on marrying the woman of his dreams.
“What if your greatest blessing is lying on the other side of the very thing you keep rejecting because you don’t think it looks like what you want it to look like?” he said.
“When it came to love and it came to dating, I said I would never date an actress,” he said.
DeVon cautioned the crowd that it’s better to be open to love and not limit the possibilities with rules and restrictions that may weed out the right one.
“The fastest way for something to happen in your life, is just say, ‘Ill never do it,’” he said.
Though DeVon said he wasn’t interested in marrying an actress, Meagan seemingly had few qualms about marrying a minister, and that was validated when God told her that Devon would one day become her husband.
Despite the confirmation from above, Devon said Meagan kept her cool and didn’t pursue him. Instead, she just waited for him to make his move.
“I wish there was somebody in the house who knew that there was power in the patience…If you just wait, God will do it,” he said.
