Jealousy can creep in so unexpectedly, even towards those whom I love and have genuine joy and pleasure in their acomplishments, victories and gufts and blessings. But it’s hard to stay content. I let my eyes wander. I forget to guard my heart and choose gratitude and contentment in all things. Ugh. It’s so hard. I do not want their joys, or their experiences, I want my own. I am not covetting, but mourning the lack of certain things in our existence. Unfulfilled dreams, and personal hardships can break you down.
Jealousy creeps in so silently. Even towards the people I love most, for whom i find true joy in their sucesses, and gifts, accomplishments, and blessings. It is so hard to stay content in all things, when there is hope after hope defered, and dreams left dormant. It is not so much that I desire the blessings someone else has received, as it is that I am mourning the lack of it in my own sittuation. I am richly blessed. I know that. Yet there are still the struggles. The empty cupboards and empty passports. The walls we keep hitting, the answers that just haven’t been heard yet. I forget to guard my heart, and I forget to cling to gratitude. To trust that His heart is just as much for us, as it is for these others.
