Hey all! It’s been around six months since I wrote last and A LOT has changed!!!
If you have read my past posts, you’ll know I was having a lot of trouble trusting God. I started dating and was finding it hard to stay pure for my future husband. Unfortunately, I was with a not-so-great guy at the time who took advantage of my doubt. We ended up having sex, and I’ve regretted it ever since. I finally ended things because I hated how he treated me and verbally abused me.
After him, I had a rough time! I started sleeping with whoever, whenever. I was so lost. I just really didn’t care about myself anymore. I had gone from saving myself for marriage to four notches in my belt that I wish I could erase. My heart was aching to find the right man, but I had no clue where to discover him.
Then I had a date with someone I met through an online dating app. We met and had dinner. I liked this guy and how he made me feel about myself, the way he talked to me. I wasn’t just a score for him. I was a person. Not just some girl but someone that mattered. He made me feel worthy of love again.
Not-so-long story short, we were married three months later. It was a beautiful ceremony at my home church, and life has been fantastic for these last three months. I am as happy as can be. I feel God working in my life, sending me Nate, rescuing me from my dangerous situation. He reminded me that I am worth so much more!
I have someone now who loves me more than I ever knew a man could love me. He would do anything for me and I for him. He is my partner, my best friend, the love of my life! I hate to think of where I would be without him. I thank God for him every day and can’t wait to grow old together!
We are sorry that this post was not one of your favorites!
Help us understand why.
