Jealousy can often be caused by the limited perspective people have placed upon our lives; due to words that were or were not said by a loved one, due to an absent presence of a mother or father, due to being stuck in a senseless relationship that you had no business being in, or maybe it's that position that you applied for that you didn't get.
Whatever you feed will eventually grow and Jealousy, if you let it, can create self doubt, worry and can eventually consume you with all types of feelings of fear and dismay.
When face with jealousy and Envy you have to bear in mind that if God didn't give it to you, it’s not worth having. If God took it from you, it’s because He's preparing you for greater. You will reap the harvest of what God has promised you and you will recover it all. What is meant for you is meant for you and He will restore to you that which you have lost. Learn to let go of your past pain, Learn to let go of and stop focusing on what you don't have and focus on the blessings that you do have. Learn to stop wanting what other people have if you’re not willing to go through what they did to get it. Learn to start focusing on all that’s positive in your life. You have wonderful gifts and talents, focus on using those gifts to identify your blessings and God given purpose in life to help and become a blessing to someone else.
Breaking free from the chains of jealousy starts with your mind. "Be transformed by the renewal of your mind; for as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he;"…when you change the way you think, you will change the way you feel and the way you act.
