6. Don’t envy each other.
Nothing will steal your joy more quickly than envying other people.
Not only does it prevent you from enjoying what is really good about your own life and circumstance, but it causes you to fantasize about their life and circumstance, and, the truth is, your fantasy is likely untrue. Most of the time, you just don’t know the details. Nobody’s life is perfect.
Don’t waste your time with comparison and envy. Instead of envy, practice celebration and love.
7. Confess your faults.
James 5:16 says, “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” Did you catch that? Confess, that you might be healed.
Confession is hard, but confession is healing.
Do you have people in your life who you feel safe to share your secrets with?
If not, find these people (godly people), confess to them and ask them to pray for you, that you might be healed.
