Stress Solutions for the Soul: Jan 5th

“Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.” 1 Corinthians 13:4


Jealousy flows out of pride. Pride occurs when you feel that you deserve to be respected by others. Pride fuels the feeling that you are more important than other people. Expectations on how you feel people should show up for you and frustration when they don’t meet your expectations often leads to negative emotional outbursts. Because the nature of pride is to exalt itself above others it often gives birth to jealousy when encountering people it perceives to be more successful than itself. It is a dangerous reptile that wreaks havoc in our relationships and must be quickly replaced with love and humility so as to maintain healthy rapport with God and other people.


Dear God,


Thank you that I am not alone on this journey.  Give me eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart to respond to the call for connection for a greater good in this world.


Remove from my mental radar all distractions of comparisons that breed pride or jealousy.  Teach me to number my days aright that I may gain a heart full of wisdom and spend my moments creating what is good, right, beautiful and praise worthy…along with aligning what I do with who I am in You.


When people encounter me may they walk away ignited with You.


I am grateful that I woke up this morning and for another day to grow in the way of love, kindness and confidence.
