"But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hears, do not boast and be false to the truth. This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice. But the wisdom from above is first PURE, then PEACEABLE, GENTLE, open to REASON, full of MERCY and GOOD fruits, IMPARTIAL and SINCERE. And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace." -James 3:14-18
Jesus, rid my heart of all bitterness and jealousy. My flesh is so quick to want to take control. Help me to surrender control. There is freedom in surrendering at the cross. Fill my heart with Your LOVE and JOY! Jesus, I trust You.
