Removing envy from my heart

Dear Lord,
Sometimes I do not realize how much I envy other people’s marriage. When I see a husband and wife interacting with each other or when I see them have things that my husband and I can’t afford, my heart fills with envy. I begin to desire what they have instead of being thankful for what I have. I really appreciate You opening my eyes to this and showing me that it is something I need to change. I ask that You would help me change this part of my character. I am truly grateful for my husband and the relationship we share. I do not want envy to take my joy away from what I have. Remove envy from my heart and mind and replace it with thankfulness in Jesus’ name AMEN!
