Originally I wanted to show you guys how I revamped my room but various issues prevented me from showing you the entire room. But, I just had to share the new print I received from Allison Bradley Prints. If you remember, about a week ago I shared the Allison Bradley Prints interview on this very blog. If you haven’t yet please read that interview to learn about these amazing people who are very diligent and enthusiastic about their business.
As mentioned in the interview Allison Bradley Prints offers custom orders in their shop. They were kind enough to allow me the opportunity to order a custom made print that I feel is true to me and what I believe in. Many of you might not know this but I am an avid reader of the Bible. In my opinion there is no greater book out there that can truly help us in our lives. Just like anyone else there are a few scriptures that speak to me so greatly that I have to write them down and carry them with me where ever I go.
One such scripture is 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 where the Bible discusses the true meaning of love. In short it says:
“ Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous. It does not brag, does not get puffed up. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love Never Fails.”
What does this scripture mean to me?
This scripture teaches me how I should love my neighbor. In a world filled with hate and strife having a scripture like this reminds me to have such strong love that nothing can break it. As the scripture brings out Love is kind, meaning no matter how much we might be provoked, displaying a rough or harsh demeanor would not promote peace. Therefore we show love.
Love is not jealous. This helps me to not become envious of the good things that come to others. Instead it helps me to rejoice when I see others succeeding even if I am not at the moment. This is so important because often in this blogging world we can become envious of other bloggers or influencers who seem to have it all. But, instead of bashing them, or trying to poke holes in their success, we should instead “rejoice with those rejoicing.”
Love does not brag or get puffed up. Meaning it does not seek the applause or admiration or others. In the same vein as the above paragraph, if we show true love we will not step on others to get to the top. Rather love will motivate us to offer sincere encouragement and build up other persons. Also, when we do obtain success we will not brag and become haughty. Instead we will display humility a quality that is so often ignored in today’s world.
I adore my Allison Bradley “Love Never Fails” print so much that I like to keep it close by on my desk so that I can look at it each morning. It is my hope that this article, that this scripture will reach your heart also.
