These Girls Are Learning About Love from 1 Corinthians 13
Love. It's one of our favorite words, but we all find it difficult to put it into words. And even if we have a hundred stories written about it, we still find the need every day to talk about it and share our own love stories. We just can't get enough of love, and that's good news because it's what the world needs right now.
But these two Candy Girls found their meaning of love from the Bible, specifically from the chapter dedicated to love: 1 Corinthians 13. In their Candy Feels entries, these girls describe the love of their lives which were inspired by the famous chapter in the Bible. Read what they have to say below:
Kreisha Daza: You Are My 1 Corinthians 13 Love:
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
I love how you always correct me when I'm at fault. I love how you never condone my wrongdoings. And, my love, I believe this is the most essential part of all relationships—to be able to correct each other without hesitation lovingly.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres.
I felt how willing you are to protect me despite the distance that separates us. I felt how your trust is able to sail in ships and fly through planes. I'm able to see how hopeful you are that we would be able to see each other soon; and your perseverance to pursue me and to be with me is so evident that I do not doubt at all. My love, actions speak louder than words; even if you will not tell me that you love me every day, I would still feel and see it.
Oh, and one last thing: I love you too. And yes is my answer to the question you have been asking.
Marojadecru: You Will be My 1 Corinthians 13:7 Love:
I will wait. I'm willing to wait. Please know that you're always in my prayers and you'll always be there, always and forever. He will be the center of our relationship because without Him, I'll never meet someone like you. Someone who makes me happy, lively, full of energy and all. Someone who pushes me to be the best version of myself without even knowing it. Someone who believes in me and in my kindness.
Life with Christ is an even more wonderful adventure with you.
You will always be my 1 Corinthians 13:7 love. I'll always protect, always trust, always hope in you, and persevere for you. And our love will never give up, never lose faith, it will always be hopeful, and it will endure through every circumstances in all things.

Outdoors Danielle Flestado @artdkf | May 1, 2020 "I miss the outside world. The last time I went outside of our house was on my birthday. We just bought coffee across our village and went back home immediately. This painting made me feel that I'm in a field, just appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Can you imagine the green grass and pink flowers?"
When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.
You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.
You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
I always thought of life, like a bead where each piece makes it worth sewing together with other piece of beads to make a stronger bond and to create a beautiful result. Today, how do we bond well with different people especially this difficult time? As this day challenges us to a new normal, may we continue to bead along positively with our life.
