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!
