Sometimes I get jealous & angry when I see Women experiencing things in life I never did. Beautiful weddings, family events, happy family reunions, hugging and laughing with parents, looking so beautiful & content in their pictures and sounding so happy and amazingly content in all they say or do!
BUT.... then I remember we are hearing & seeing the "HIGHLIGHT REEL" of their lives; we don't know what they've gone through to get where they are; we don't know what's really going on inside them; we can't see what happened five minutes before the picture or five minutes later when they are yelling at their husband or getting a tragic phone call. Then I remember, even if they are happy, successful, content and enjoying those amazing times in life; who am I to judge their lives or envy their blessings?!
So I pray! I count my own blessings & I thank God for all he has brought me through and where I've come from. I ask God to purify my heart & renew my mind; forgive me of jealousy, envy & discontentment. I ask God to heal my brokenness & help me to celebrate & be happy for people & with them instead of being angry or jealous! I ask God to give me his heart to love; his eyes to see; his words to speak; his hands and feet to do his work.
I say, "God, I surrender all to you! I love you & thank you for this precious gift of life.
Forgive me for ever feeling sorry for myself or any jealousy inside me.
Fill me with your love, peace, power and bless my life greatly in Jesus name!
I am thankful; I am appreciative; I am loved and I am yours.
I love you Jesus." Amen!
