Fire The Envy

fire flames

They’re having more fun than me – – it seems
I wanna do what their doing, have what they have
I was happy with what the Lord gave to me
Until I see what others have now I’m not happy (Exodus 20:17)
What causes these types of feelings?

It was an old saying, on the other side grass is more green
And, it seems that way when you lose focus on your own blessings
If God gave you exactly what you were asking
And instead of being thankful; to others you are comparing
Then, God’s blessings you are not appreciating
You’re being envious of others instead of celebrating

While there is always going to be others with more prosperity
Yet, there are still others who wished they had the blessings God bestowed on me
So, I need to fire the envy
And focus and rejoice on what God has given me.
