Sometimes, love just isn’t good enough… and we have to close that door, slam it if we need to, pick ourselves back up, and try again.

But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love."' ~ 1 JOHN 4:18

CONFIDENCE makes you BEAUTIFUL, desirable and gets you where you want to go! GO AND BE FEARLESS!!! "'Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident."' ~ PSALM 27:3
