proverbs {paraphrased}

proverbs 14:30
'A peaceful heart leads to a healthy body; jealousy is like cancer in the bones'

the connection between our minds, hearts and bodies is not imagined, it's quite real. a calm mind encourages a peaceful heart which leads to a sound body.
our tendency to compare and measure ourselves to others, whether it's to their possessions or their position, can cause a lot more than a temporary temper tantrum.
the anxiety and fear we experience when we feed our greedy insecurities with jealousy can lead to heightened stress levels, which, in turn, can lead to depression, diabetes and even heart disease. our creativity is diminished, our happiness is held hostage and our spirit is crushed, rendering us ineffective and joyless.
enemy 10, us zip.

the only cure for this cancer is to put our hope in our Creator. (Psalm 139)
we are unique on purpose.
we are precious in His sight.
put your mind at ease and sleep well...
you are loved
