Candice’s Christian Testimony

I want to share a little bit about how God has been working in my life in the past year and a half as a Christian. This is only a part of what God has done for me.

I was in a relationship with a man for almost 3 years. We loved each other and got together before I truly became born again. And we were unevenly yoked, and I didn’t understand how it could be wrong at the time. We were living together, not married . . .

The enemy used lie after lie to make me believe this man and I were meant to be together. I went to a trusted friend in my church community as I was starting to have serious doubts about this relationship. But I was too afraid of losing this man to follow through with breaking it off.

Eventually it got to a point where I started to pray constantly to God for a while that if this was NOT of HIM for God to have this man break up with me because I wouldn’t be able to do it and I wanted to be stripped from everything that wasn’t of God so I could get closer to Him.

After serious prayer and a fast with a good friend of mine, God answered my prayers.

The exact day the fast ended, the man I had spent almost 3 years with had told me we couldn’t be together anymore as he felt he was holding me back and that I deserved a husband who would go to church with me.

It hurt a lot at first and I almost regretted praying for this. However, as the time went on I couldn’t be happier. I have grown significantly in my walk with Christ and I fully understand why the Bible tells us to not be unevenly yoked! I praise God daily for this. It has now been about 5 weeks and I am continuing to search for God in every area of my life. To follow GOD has been the best decision I have ever made in my life. Praise GOD!

    God truly cares for us and wants to show us the way, truth and life He desires for us. When we start praying and reading his word (his love letter to us), we find out God’s heart and draw closer to Him and stay focused on the path He sets for us.
