Look around you. Take the time to consider exactly where you are at this moment. Breathe deeply and meditate on the fact that God knows you, right now, wherever you are. God is with you at this moment and sees you and knows the desires of your heart.
Take a deep breath and allow God's desires to fill your heart.
Exhale, and let go of your worries and those things to which you have been clinging and which may have gotten in the way of your relationship with God today. Take two more deep breaths.
If they do have envy, it will not be viscious as before, when they were distressed that others were preferred to them and more advanced.
St. John of the Cross
Be not surprised that you have feelings of envy when others are preferred, but do not allow those feelings to have power over you. In your prayer today, be intentional about praying for your neighbors’ success and advancement.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
