Tainted Witness

Tainted Witness

Have you ever felt like you tainted your witness for Christ?

 Allow me to translate; simply put, you had an opportunity to take stand for Christ; and shamefully you do not.  As you read this blog, I hope my story resonates with you as a faithful believer yourself. One that is equally striving to please God with your life, never compromising your faith or tainting your witness!  As followers of Christ, I believe it is our duty as His “disciples” to represent Christ well.

Well for a newly single woman, I can’t say I was that excited for the summer. Of course, I was happy it was warm, I enjoyed hanging with my friends, but in the back of my mind I was scared. Not only was I scared to start over, but I was also scared to live. Seriously, I had been in a relationship so long I had to learn how to go to a movie by myself. Yes, I was that girl. Don’t get me wrong I didn’t lose myself in my relationship. However, after being in a relationship for nine years I did get comfortable in having someone there to always do things with, and when you’re friends aren’t as single as you, your options for hanging out get real small real quick. Therefore, I had two choices - find some new friends that were also unattached with lots of free time or learn how to do things by myself. I decided to challenge myself and do both.
