People with understanding control their anger; a hot temper shows great foolishness. A peaceful heart leads to a healthy body; jealousy is like cancer in the bones.
— Proverbs 14:29-30 NLT
Lord, I confess the jealousy I've had in my heart many times in the past. I have craved many things that belonged to others, and I had no idea this was like a cancer to the very essence of my being. Forgive me, Lord, and restore my health to what it would have been without this jealousy. Help me to be content and at peace with all the things You have provided to me. I know this contentment can help me live in a better state of healthiness. Help me to use my health to serve You better and glorify Your Name. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
