I have been watching a show on Netflix, which I assume was originally on The Travel Channel or DIY, I dunno. That’s not the point, anyway!
It truly is an interesting show. People who have taken strange places and turned them into homes. A barn, a chapel, an old store, a school house. These all have been turned into the most beautiful homes I have ever seen!!
Here is where my problem comes in, it’s like Kitchen Crashers, on DIY channel, but I watch on Netflix. People are in Menards, or Home Depot looking to do home improvements and they get whisked away to have their dreams come true by the television show. To say I am jealous of these people is a massive understatement. Something like that will never happen to me!! I don’t have access to hundreds of thousands, or millions of dollars in some cases to make these things happen in my life. And it has created a sadness within me. I would love to live in some of these places or even have our house remade. It is far from wheelchair accessible!!
I guess it is true what they say, God doesn’t provide the emotions and ways He wants us to react within us, He gives us opportunities to work on these things. I am trying to work on my attitude of gratitude where I am. The Bible also says, ‘If we say we have no sin we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. But, if we confess our sins, God, who is faithful and just, will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.’
I admit, I covet. I admit, I get jealous of people who get to do things I wish I could. I confess! So, God will now work within me to cleanse me of these things. I just had to get this off my chest. I hope you all are having a great moment in your life, no matter where you are. God Bless.
