What the hell God? Why am I never satisfied?

“Jealousy is like a low-level hum in your ears, like hearing voices of dissatisfaction deep down in your soul that refuse to be stilled and cannot be satisfied. At times, jealousy will feel like a lowgrade fever; at others, like a raging paranoia that robs you of rest. It creates a restless tension full of whispered lies that, if repeated often enough, sound real. Sometimes it sounds like a background noise, faint and constant, but other times it erupts like a marching band blaring our Dolby stereo, ‘You deserve more and they deserve less!’ David Foster

I do not like the envy in me. I would make it go away if I could. But I cannot stop envying by trying harder. Envy can only be healed when we live as one who has been chosen by God. John Ortberg

"Of the seven deadly sins, anger is possibly the most fun. To lick your wounds, to smack your lips over grievances long past, to roll over your tongue the prospect of bitter confrontations still to come, to savor to the last toothsome morsel both the pain you are given and the pain you are giving back — in may ways it is a feast fit for a king. The chief drawback is that what you are wolfing down is yourself. The skeleton at the feast is you."

Proverbs 27:20-22
Hell has a voracious appetite, and lust just never quits.

The purity of silver and gold is tested by putting them in the fire; The purity of human hearts is tested by giving them a little fame.

Pound on a fool all you like— you can't pound out foolishness.
