Good Morning My Loves,

Super fantastic Saturday to you all. Did you wake up this morning and thank God for another day and the many blessings you have? If you didn’t, make that a first priority daily. Today, take time to reflect upon your blessings and not the blessings of someone else. Jealousy is when you count someone else’s blessings instead of your own. A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it, it just blooms. The things we often take for granted someone else is praying for. Take a second to see how blessed you are. Never let the things you want make you forget the things you have. Learn to appreciate what you have, before time makes you appreciate what you had.

One things for sure, when you start following someone else and copying what they do you will always be a step behind. Being jealous or envious indicates that we are not satisfied with what God has blessed us with. The bible tells us to be content with what we have, for God will never fail or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5) and  Proverbs 14:30 says, “A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.” Jealousy is the pain that arises when someone has something you don’t have, which you think you need to be fully satisfied. So when you’re jealous, the problem lies in your faith — You’re not trusting Jesus’ promise that He Himself will fully satisfy you ( John 6:35)  And you are trusting that something else will satisfy you more than Jesus. As life goes on you will find out that the true meaning of happiness is not in a financial status for you can have all the treasures of the world and still feel worthless. If things are what you feel you need to have to be of value, you will forever depreciate. The true meaning of happiness is finding peace, joy and a calmness in your life that will become the most important thing to you. Your family, your friends and being loved is what matters. Things that are of quality not of quantity. You’re not truly rich until you have something money can’t buy and that’s a relationship with our Heavenly Father.

Today, look around you and know how blessed you are. We complain we need shoes and there are people with no feet. We complain we want a bigger house when someone’s home is on the street. We complain that we want a new car when there is someone that has to walk everywhere to provide for their family. Remember the things you have someone else is praying for. Create a life that feels good on the inside, not one that just looks good on the outside. Never let things define your self worth because things aren’t loyal and you will be left lonely with only your true self worth. Be thankful, be grateful, be humble and spread love. Be abundantly blessed my Loves and more importantly a blessing to others. I know you can do this because….Great Is In You!
