So my first relationship was pretty bad. We did a lot of things we shouldn’t and I knew God was telling me to end things with him. I fought God on it for like 6 months but eventually I got to my breaking point and broke it off around October of last year. I felt so much joy and was filled with Christs love. I got baptized shortly after and have been striving to life every day for Jesus. A few months ago, I met this guy at college (my first boyfriend and i started dating in High school) and he pursued me like crazy, it was great! He loves God, and is building up his relationship with Him, has passion and drive for his life, and really really cares about me. We started dating officially about 2 weeks ago, and our relationship has been happy and healthy.
However, I started getting the same voice in my head telling me to break up with him. I thought it was Satan attacking me and planting self-doubt in my heart to throw me off, so I pushed it aside. But Now the feelings of unsettlement and confusion about it are back, and I feel like God wants me to break up with him to show God that I really trust him with relationships. But it doesn’t make sense with God’s character and His actions. He brought us together in the right time for both of us. We have so much fun together and I feel like I can talk to him about anything. This relationship looks to me like the Godly one I’ve been waiting for all along. So what do I do about this unsettling feeling? Is it really in God’s character to break up a relationship truly striving for His love? Any advice would be super helpful thanks!

My advice to you would be to listen to that little voice in your head. I had the same thing happen to me. A little over a year ago I started dating a guy that I had known for quite a while. After a couple of dates I started to have the feeling that it wasn’t right. I told him how I felt but I also let him talk me out of doing what I should have because he told me he felt that it was right. We dated for a year and throughout the relationship I felt something was off but I let the love I had for him get in the way of what God was telling me. Eventually God stopped trying to tell me and told my boyfriend instead who was very quick to listen to God and broke up with me soon after he started feeling something was wrong. Not listening to God has caused me a lot of pain. And it’s possible that what God is telling you is “not yet” not “no.” I would also suggest telling this guy how you feel. See what he says but remember God’s will comes first.
