Green with Envy

I’ve been struggling a bit over the last couple months with jealousy. I’ve got a competitive person in my life who I feel is constantly comparing us. I don’t think I’d mind if I was the “victor” in these comparisons but I feel I constantly come up short. There are other areas I know I do well aka better but more often than not I come up wanting. 

So this morning I asked God to help me get past the jealousy and envy so I could be happier and not concerned so much about what this person was doing. God is so faithful. He leads me to Galatians 5:25-26: “But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature together with its passions and appetites. If we [claim to] live by the [Holy] Spirit, we must also walk by the Spirit [with personal integrity, godly character, and moral courage–our conduct empowered by the Holy Spirit]. We must not become conceited, challenging or provoking one another, envying one another.

I’ve asked for His help with these things as it really does stress me out often. I’ll let you know how the journey goes. Thanks for listening. #Girl #Bebetter #getitrightladies
