Coincidence Or Answer From God?

wedding doubt

I want to know if this is a coincidence or an answer from God?

I was single for 5 years, praying for my Godly man. I didn’t think it would happen, but it did.

I have been engaged to my fiance for 10 months now. We have our days where I question whether or not I am making the right decision, but everyone just tells me that it’s cold feet and it’s normal, and that most people feel this way before getting married.

So I started to pray to God to show me that I was making the right decision. The first time I prayed that prayer, there was a mix up with our wedding venue, so we had to move the date back a few months. I didn’t take it as anything major. Definitely not a sign from God.

Now my sister has just passed away from Leukemia. I have been awarded custody of her daughter (my niece). She only had the one child. She’s 10. I’m the only family this little girl has. She lost her father when she was just 8 months old, My mom is deceased and our dad walked out on my mom, my sister, and I when I was just a little girl.

I love my niece with all my heart as if she were my own and I promised my sister that I would take care of her baby.

The problem is that my fiance has a felony. I cannot become her legal guardian if an ex felon lives in the same household. We don’t live together yet, but when we get married, what will happen?

I cannot lose my niece. I cannot send her away to live with strangers. She has been through enough.

Is this another sign from God? I don’t know what to think. I waited so long for this man. I really don’t want to believe that this is not the man God has for me.

I don’t think I can wait another 5 years. Prayers and advice are welcome.

Do you think this is a coincidence or an answer from God?

You have your answer…you just don’t want to see it. This man is not in God’s will for you 💕


I will say let go of the man… for now, he is not God’s will for you. Maybe sometime later, he will be … and when that time comes, all things will align to work in your favor. 🙂

I will be praying for you and you must continue to pray about the issue. I know you have been wanting this for a long time. However, there are some signs that later down the road things might not turn out good. I believe the smallest problem are the one that should be looked at and solved. If your and mind are not settled, you should reconsider. There are time only you and God can make a decision. Good luck and hope all will work out well dear.


I am conflicted for you but I am a firm believer if he is meant for you there is nothing on earth that can stop God’s will. I wouldnt worry about it.

Perhaps the question is, what is the felony? We all have a past. If we have overcome that past, then our fruit will show this.
Moving is an option, but you have a duty to your blood to take care of her wellbeing. Love is putting a weaker person above oneself. You also have a duty to take care of you. Safety first before you think about marriage.


Is their anyway you can check out the laws in other states that would allow you and your niece to live with your future husband?
