Don’t Worry: Be Happy

Why do you worry? Ever asked yourself that before? Why do you do it? What does it achieve? Has worrying ever made the situation better? Has it? No, seriously, ask yourself these questions.

  • Worry is simply you tormenting yourself from disturbing thoughts and cares that may not be real. It’s anticipating troubles which seldom come to those who trust in God.
  • Worry is a weight that can destroy its victim prematurely.
  • Worry is a grace digger that has no sympathy for its victim.
  • Worry is a mental and physical suicide. It’s an unproductive exercise that leads to nowhere.
  • Worry is like an interest you’re paying on a loan you’ve never received.
  • Worry is a sin in the eyes of God. It’s a sign that you don’t believe.
  • Worry comes to rub you of your faith in God.

Stop the worry, and focus on what you can control.

.…In every life we have some trouble
But when you worry you make it double
Don’t worry, be happy

…’cause when you worry your face will frown
And that will bring everybody down
So don’t worry, be happy

Like good little children, don’t worry, be happy
Now listen to what I said, in your life expect some trouble
When you worry you make it double
But don’t worry, be happy, be happy now

WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF WORRYING REMEMBER

Matthew 6: 25- 27—“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on…”

Matthew 6:34 — “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself.”

Matthew 11:28-30—“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

John 14:27-–“Peace I leave with you;my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”

 So my dear, stopping worrying…for it is well.

  1. Yes it is a sin and it is a sign of unbelief! Had been there and it’s no good. Thank God for helping me overcome that pit fall. My Mom tends to worry a lot and I rightly rebuke her most of the times about it and encourages her with the Word! She’s getting out of it and will continue to in Jesus name. Keep her and my other sis in prayer where this hurdle is concerned. Blessings & peace to you. 🙂

    1. Amen! We thank God. You’re doing amazing. A lot of us struggle with constant worrying (forgetting God’s promises)…. because we have conditioned the mind to do so.
      Surely, will keep them in my prayers.
      I appreciate your input 💝
      Hope you have a great weekend.

      1. Bless God! ❤ all glory to God for that! Yes, that's true, but that's why we need to continue to renew our mind with the Word of God. It's constant change for the better. Romans 12:1-2. His Word also increases our faith in Him for faith comes by hearing and by hearing the word of God. Thanks much and you're welcome! I sure did, you have a blessed one!

  3. Hey Sunshine! I have always loved that song by Bobby Mcferrin – now it will mean even more with your challenge to not worry with God’s strength to help us. John 14:27 is a favorite verse. I ask Jesus every day for His peace to transform this often-overly-anxious clay pot from a worrier to a warrior (the LOVE at all costs kind!) Blessings & (worry-free) hugs! 🍂🤗🍂

  6. Worry is like an unwelcome guest who keeps coming back, but we can stop it from returning just by turning our thoughts and hearts to God and letting Him bring sweet release. He may not take away our problems or challenges but He can help us feel His sweet love and peace even amid the most difficult of circumstances.

    1. ‘Unwelcome guest’: a perfect description! We must continue to shut the door on it.
      Right. He did say come unto Him & He’ll give us rest. He gives peace that passeth all understanding.
      Thank you for always sharing your thoughts! It’s adds great value to the post.

  7. I try hard not to worry even as a child… some think that I don’t care…I do but I believe that He knows what’s right for me
