Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self–seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
For if you listen to the word and don't obey, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror. You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like.
Are you real? There are many reasons people wear/put on their masks and refuse to become completely transparent even with those they consider their closest friends. It's so wonderful to find people who can be real and true to us. We are drawn to them because they are genuine and true; we know that they are not pretending.
God created every single one of us differently and everyone of us is special in God's sight! [= So, be the one whom God has created you to be. If you do not know, just ask God to show you. Yeah, He will; and will help you to know more about yourself when you trust in Him, we can examine our lives and then learn to shape them to reflect the goodness of God.
This is a process.We begin by looking into the mirror to see what we need to remove of the old person we used to be, so that we can take on the character and nature of God which is very awesome! It's hard sometimes, but do not give up, because God will never give up on you.
Too often, we miss the value of sharing our failings. We don't want to be vulnerable, so we hold back. In doing so, we deprive others of who God created each of us to be. Sharing your failures can help others up too. Don't be trapped by your past, move on stronger in Christ Jesus. Don't worry He will always be there to pick you up, no matter how many times you fall. Let your guard down and be all you were created to be. (=
I hope this helped whoever who reads it because i was deeply blessed by this!
