Exercise for Lesson 19
Godly Contentment: Head to Heart Guide
Write down three "green-eyed" things that have most frequently or powerfully provoked you to envy/jealousy of others, robbing you of your godly contentment. Then pray and ask the Holy Spirit to show you what it was that you really wanted or what it was that you felt so deprived of that you became envious of another’s blessing.
Finally, seek the Lord for what it was that you were not trusting about God the Father. He is a perfect Provider, but His ways of providing do not always include giving us what we want, or believe we need, right when we desire to have it.
