Growing up in the church, I have always heard it stressed that God needs to be the center of any relationship, specifically those with significant others. Often times I saw it described as a triangle: God is the top point of the triangle, and you and your significant other are the two bottom points. All this to say, God is what brings you together and holds you together. He is the key to any successful relationship.

For the longest time, I thought that I understood what it meant to have God at the center of your relationship, but I've learned that it can be easy to let that slip on the back burner. So to save you the trouble, I've come up with a few tips that you can use to make sure that God is in the center of your relationship.

The first tip that I want to share with you is prayer.

I cannot express to you how significant or important praying with and for your significant other is. It is one of the most intimate things that you can do with your partner. Pray about anything and everything! Pray about the relationship, give control over to Him, and surrender it all; pray about the problems that arise, thank Him for the good times, and pray for each other in anything that you both face.

The Bible says that "Where two or more are gathered, there I will be also."

Praying is a direct line of communication with God, and when you and your significant other pray with and for each other, it is a great way to make sure that God is staying in the center of your relationship.

The second tip is to talk about God.

Make an effort to bring God into your conversations. Talk about where you are in your walk with the Lord so that you will be able to hold each other accountable. Talking about God and spiritual concepts will help each of you grow and change your perspectives.

And finally, read the Bible together.

Keeping God's Word in your heart helps remind you of the love and promises that God has for you. Having bible study together is a great way for you two to learn more about God together. It can be good for conversation and learning verses together will help you along the way in your relationship.

All in all, putting God in the center of your relationship is one of the most important things that you can do for it. While these few tips are helpful, they aren't the only thing that you can do.

If this is something that you struggle with, talk with God and your significant other to find ways to put God in the center of your relationship. Ask God for the strength and will to put Him in the center of your relationship.



You won't regret it.

Lately, I have felt lost at what God wants for my life. Ever since I've come back to UWG everything has been horrible. It seems that I can't catch a break. I'm trying my best to focus on school, work, and extracurricular activities. But it's hard when I'm having issues with my apartment/roommates and knowing my family back home is struggling and needs many prayers. All, I keep thinking is maybe Carrollton isn't where I belong anymore. I've asked God if He can guide me in the right direction. Below, I have found Bible verses that have helped get me through these rough, past couple of weeks.

1. Isaiah 43:2

"When you go through deep waters, I will be with you."

2. Psalm 37:5

"Commit your way to the Lord. Trust in Him, and He will act."

3. Romans 8:18

"The pain that you've been feeling, can't compare to the joy that's coming."

4. Proverbs 31:25

"She is clothed in strength, and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future."

5. Joshua 1:9

"Be bold. Be brave. Be courageous."

6. Ecclesiastes 3:1

"There is a time for everything and a reason for every activity under the heavens."

7. Isaiah 41:10

"Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand."

8. Isaiah 66:9

"I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born, says the Lord."

9. Psalm 91:4

"He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings, you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart."

10. Psalm 62:1-2

"My soul finds rest in God alone, my salvation comes from Him, He alone is my rock and my salvation."

11. Philippians 4:13

"I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength."

12. Jeremiah 29:11

"For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Cole & Savannah LaBrant's Story Is Proof Our Lives Are Completely In God's Hands

A spur of the moment meeting, wasn't as spur of the moment as they thought.

Many people hear the phrase "your life is in God's hands" or "He has a plan for you."

And to some people, that might only be just that, a phrase. There might never be a big "wow" moment in their lives that proves that phrase to be true. They might not be completely trusting and awed by their faith. I know for one, that I am not as strong in my faith as I could be and should be.

I also LOVE to make plans for my life.

I have had my 20's pretty much mapped out since the middle of high school: graduate college at 22, get married around 25-26, have at least two kids before I am 30. You know, the usual things a soon-to-be-20-year-old thinks about (at least the ones I have talked to). In the back of my mind, I have always known, however, that there is a slim chance MY plans will actually work out.

And what is the point of worrying about things I don't know will work out and trying to control things, not within my limits of control?

The one thing I am certain of is God's plan is so much greater than what I have planned for myself.

After reading YouTubers Cole and Savannah LaBrant's book, this certainty of a greater plan was even more solidified.

I have come to see the true and raw faith that God truly does hold the map to our lives if we give in to Him and trust in Him and His ways.

The beginning of the book is where this proof truly is.

The entire book is truly amazing, inspiring, and sprinkled with the love of God and the beauty of a relationship that is focused on faith. The truly amazing part for me was their chance encounter, detailed in the beginning few chapters.

After direct messaging Savannah and asking to meet up when he was in LA, Cole never heard back from her, but really she did reply but he never saw it. Then, he and his friend, John Stephen, who was with him, just happened to be in the exact same place at the exact same time. Through Savannah's sister who just happens to be walking by them at the same time in a different place, they are able to finally meet.

Why did Cole and John Stephen just happen to be at the Grove at the same time and day as Savannah and Everleigh and their friends?

Let me tell you: GOD.

Both of them had finally started to give their lives to their faith and trust in God.

Savannah was struggling through a back and forth relationship while praying for the right man to walk into her life. Cole was praying for a woman to come into his life that was just as in love with her faith as he was with his. Their prayers weren't answered right away, because God is on His own schedule and always knows when the time is right.

But with a little faith and patience, BOTH of their prayers were answered, and here they are years later, happy and expecting a new baby together.

Our lives are completely and truly in God's hands and all we have to do is trust and believe in and love Him to see the magic happen.
