Serenity

Description

God teaches us to calm our minds and be content with where we are. He will work it all out.

A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones. Proverbs 14:30

This verse is soothing to my soul. Who doesn’t want peace? There is nothing better than sitting at the beach in the late afternoon listening to the soft, gentle break of the waves. As you sit there, your mind slowly drifts away, and you find yourself calm. God tells us in this Scripture that a calm and undisturbed heart is the life and health of the body.

Many of us ignore God’s teaching and choose the other path—envy, jealousy, and wrath. It’s so easy to envy other women, to be jealous of their houses, their husbands, and their relationships with their children. If we allow it to consume us, envy and jealousy begin to eat away at us, and we become angry and unsatisfied. God teaches us to calm our minds and be content with where we are. He will work it all out.

Prayer

Father, I want to run far away from envy, jealousy, and anger. Show me how to seek a calm mind. Teach me how to be content with where I am and what I have. I realize it is a choice, but sometimes I feel so drawn to compare myself with others. I need you. I chose you and am grateful for you and your love. Amen
