Jealousy robs me of Joy! I know this- Does that make it easier not to feel this way ---- No
Here is a verse from Proverbs 14:30 to digest:
A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh, but envy makes the bones rot.
(in the church lady's voice) "Isn't that special?" The truth hurts. I am going to focus on the things that I am grateful for and try to change some habits that are holding me back.
My time to be young has passed, my time to live a content, meaningful, healthy life has NOT passed- maybe it is just beginning.
I hope to spend time this week working on my tendency toward envy through meditation on positives, and prayer. Definitely going to be studying the Word on defeating the green-eyed monster now that I have become aware of what it is taking from me. I want to accept myself in this phase of life. Time to grow into my age and love it. :-)
Please join me in prayer - pray for me to grow in contentment, and acceptance but also for yourself to grow more peaceful and joyful as well. I will pray that anyone who reads this will find abundance in their life through gaining a more positive perspective.
