God isn’t looking for the most talented writer or most eloquent speaker to fulfill his will or spread his message and love. He’s looking for you.
Sometimes – like this time – you just need to lay it all out on the table, and allow his truth to answer every question and restore your faith in the midst of every fear.

It is essential we get back to the basics in our relationships and make time for intentional fellowship with other people, even in the midst of a relationship with our significant other.
Effective communication will strengthen and bring joy to your relationship because it is intentional and purposeful.
