Don't Worry Be Happy...

"Don't Worry Be Happy" seems easier said than done with all the crazy in the world. All the choices, decisions, changes, schedules, meetings, bills, promotions, terminations, additions, deductions, ... How could anyone be happy or worry free...ever???

There is so much swirling around us struggling for our attention and for what? To what end? The Weekend??? I think not, because then, we still have the worry of Friday being over too quick, Saturday being too rainy to do what we REALLY wanted to do, finding out your car stranded you in the middle of nowhere on Sunday and right before work on Monday you have a flat tire!!!!

The only thing that keeps my sanity in play when the week has fought every inch of strength from me, is the fact that God has always and will always provide.

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink;
or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food,
and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do
not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a
single hour to his life? Mathew 6:25-27

I was able to read these words today and it allowed me to slow down and take a breath. I can remind myself that none of the actions I do, or the running around I do can add anything to my life. I can't worry enough, or be anxious enough or do enough to change circumstances. All I can really do is put my Trust in the Lord and decide to accept His provisions, and give Him the credit.

Once I allowed myself to slow down and take account of my ever so "busy" and "Challenging" life, I realized, I already have all the important stuff, and no amount of worry can add any more icing to the already delicious cake. And That Makes Me HAPPY!
