Don't Worry, Be Happy

Doooo do do doo do do do doo do doo…ok, you get the point! Don’t Worry, Be Happy! I think the Apostle Paul should be getting some royalties since he wrote the original lyrics.

 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

Now, this scripture reads great, but it’s extremely hard to live. If you’re like me, I want the peace of God before I give my worry to God. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work like that. Through Paul, God tells us to give our anxiety to Him through prayer and thanksgiving, and THEN the peace of God shows up. So I have a role to play in this too! Don’t Worry, Be Happy.
