REDEMPTION EXPERIENCE by Pauline
God's saving grace and mercy should be celebrated by anyone who is alive and is in his will.
Back in 2008, I was finding it difficult to secure an admission into the university. I had tried the previous year and the year before. I had fantasies about the schools I would love to attend.
In 2008, I got admitted into one of those schools I wanted. To run a short pre-university program. As at the time, I remember praying to God to help me get into the main undergraduate program. I made a vow to be chaste and not get involved in anything sexual relations with anyone and God granted my heart desire.
When I got in, my commitment to God dropped. I kept a friend who didn't have a relationship with God. I felt that since I got what I wanted, I could now keep a relationship. I stopped praying and going to church regularly. I indulged in sexual immorality and partied with my friends. As a result of my distance from God, I felt an emptiness in my soul.
God had to separate me from my friend and made it clear that he wasn't in support of my relationship with my then boyfriend. Because sex was involved, I had a soul tie with him, even though he later got married. The soul tie led me into masturbation and having a spirit spouse. My academics suffered through all these years and I graduated with a grade lower than expected.
When I finished my undergraduate degree, I got closer to God again, sought deliverance from my spirit spouse, which before I received it, God allowed me to go through a period of dying to my flesh and being consecrated to him. I began to grow as Christian, he spoke to my sister about how he loves and approves of me.
Four years later, he gave me an opportunity to go back to school for a postgraduate diploma and this time, I came top of my class. God is a God of second chances. His grace and mercy found me, even when the devil thought I was heading to destruction.
