I am no stranger to envy but through it I have begun to adopt a mindset of gratitude, as opposed to growing jealous of the things I don’t have. Coveting is a dangerous game especiallywhen it is for things outside of God’s kingdom. It always seems to feel like it will reward: “Oh if I just had that, then I will feel better!”. But these things never satisfy and always leave you empty and wanting. Still turning my back on them is difficult at times. I think of Romans 7:15: want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.
I am grateful God is patient with me and is always right beside me. I lean on Him to make me righteous and not my own will. My own struggles creates a humble heart in me and more sympathetic to those who are lost or in their own battles.
