Let Us Be Therewith Content

A few weeks ago at our church's youth camp, my pastor asked four young ladies, including myself, to share a devotional/testimony with the girls attending. Of course, I was somewhat nervous speaking to all the wonderful women at the camp, but I did my best to talk (through some tears) about some things that God has placed on my heart. This post is inspired by what I said that night, with much more clarity. I always feel a bit uneasy when I write things like this, because I don't want people to assume that I have it all figured out and that I get this right all the time. Still, I hope that this post might be a help and a blessing to someone. 

Envy To feel uneasiness, mortification or discontent, at the sight of superior excellence, reputation or happiness enjoyed by another; to repine at another's prosperity; to fret or grieve one's self at the real or supposed superiority of another, and to hate him on that account.
