I overheard a woman saying that Godly people can’t envy lol I wanted to remind her the story I remembered from my bible study group days of how a God fearing king named King Saul had such envy for a sheppard boy named David who praised him and admired him..
David did so much to assist him in the palace while admiring…yet King Saul was jealous of him..envied him for being closer to God and tried to kill him lol People can sometimes envy your relationship with God.
I was shocked when I found that out as a teenager..my aunt used to explain that to us. They can have everything in life- lots of money, fancy cars, a happy marriage, a family, an education, talent- and yet STILL envy others…even envy those that are inspired by them. Don’t be blinded.
Remain faithful to doing good on earth and doing the right thing. Your light will shine to God as long as you are focused and balanced with self.
To be envied or to inspire??..that is the question. I had a girl told me she used to be jealous of me and I was a bit surprised.. Honestly I’d rather inspire people than to be envied. If people are envious then you have no friends and I only have a few…. always wanted a big group of positive girlfriends. I feel if we inspire others then there will be no room for envy because people will be motivated to become their best self. Your energy will light theirs up just from yours being bright. Ever been around certain people that just made you feel an energy boost just from being around them? That’s what you should feel and who you should be around.
If not, be the one to help them feel positive by first working on yourself and becoming your greatest version.
When I’d find out someone felt that way I’d be like “There is no need to be if you knew all the sad things I overcame.” I am thankful I can use that to motivate others. God kept me and I am still here. Be thankful. Smile. Love. Focus on what’s best for you in this life you have. 🙃🌞 Life is too short. Great memories last longer. Make them.
Sometimes people will hate on you for no reason before they know your whole story. Lol WELL….I’m not perfect. My body was never as fit. My skin isn’t that perfect (I’m just a genius with how to do makeup lol) Sometimes I talk so fast you may not understand me but I love it. I was never the person I am now. I went thru some deeeep hell during the ages 18-23 so I don’t even know how I survived. God and His angels had to have got me through so mucg. If you hate on someone (or maybe throw shade) please stop and think for a second and maybe be happy for them. You may not even know what they had to go through before they got blessed. You may not know how many jobs turned them down before they got that promotion. Maybe they got their license late in life before they got a Camaro *hint hint* You may not know what they been through before they got that wedding ring I heard this girl tell me, “Renita I don’t be seein how you do so much and look so good with all you have going on. You’re an author and you started some businesses.”
I was flattered but girl, I learned a lot. I’m a student of life but now I’m the teacher. For one, if you want to be happy in life you have to learn to be happy by depending on happiness with yourself…know thyself..then you can be happy with someone …bc it’s healthier that way. Never feel like you can’t be happy UNLESS you have someone. Be happy to share your happiness WITH someone but already be happy and work on you. If you want to be successful then you need a plan, you need effort and to follow through. Learn to save some money and be wise.
