“A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.” Proverbs 14:30 (NIV)
Thoumbing through a sea of tweets, the verse above caught my attention. Stop. Click through the links to the web page- not sure why- but I keep clicking and reading. The whole time I’m thinking, “What! Am I reading this for, when I could be reading inspirational verses for my Actual issues?!”….HA!
Reality sets in. Convicted.
The fact that I was in an exhausted state of mind, sitting down for a second to rest, all because I Am Lacking peace as I attempt to organize the laundry room. It hit me right then- I’m a very envious person. I envy the mom who’s house is always in order. The one who seems to sail through with children who actually do the chores on their lists. I don’t even make chore lists anymore! You see, the envy has begun to “rot” my bones! I’m grumpy and exhausted and my sorry attempts at organizing are looking more like a tornado ran through the laundry room.
Word of God, Speak!
Humbly, and to be continued,
