One of my sisters in Christ received a word for her life.
She got a prophetic word that the guy she was seeing was not the one for her, nor was he even the type of the man she desired deep in her heart.

Can a Christian and a non-Christian date, fall in love, be genuinely happy, get married and do great things for the world? There are countless follower/non-follower relationships that would be viewed as phenomenal by any standard.
