Proverbs of a 39 yr old man

I truly do believe if we stop comparing ourselves to others and stop stalking other people on what God has done in their life. We would be a much happier people and would notice the individual blessings that we have been given by God. The most content person in the room is not the person who has the most but it’s the person who is happiest with the least. And as we grow and mature in our faith we become content with just having Jesus. Naked I came into this world and naked I will leave it with nothing in hand. But not fully naked because I have covered myself with the grace of God in Christ. It’s everything I will ever need in this life and the next. I am blessed with whatever portion God has given me. Help me LORD to not be jealous of what other people have on their plate. What they are eating and what they have more than me on my plate. I must be content with my plate even after all is eaten up, I still have the bread of Life Himself and that is enough.  Things come and go, the locusts eat and take away from what I worked so hard to yield. But I have never seen the righteous forsaken, the Bread of life has always been on my plate. Never stale, always fresh, providing daily for my spiritual hunger. I thirst, I thirst LORD! Quench my heart, I want more and more to feed my flesh that is never satisfied! Here is my plate Jesus help me to resist the vinegar of this world as you did on the Cross. And bear the plate you have given me and be content with it. Oh prone to wander and I feel it. To look at the plates of others as you walk by them and fill them leaving me jealous. Why did you not fill mine the same way or more? Thank you Jesus that you died to this world being content with mission you had. Make me the same way! For when we died with Christ we were set free from the power of sin. Although he was weak when he was nailed to the cross, he now lives by the power of God. We are weak, just as Christ was. But you will see that we will live by the power of God, just as Christ does.
