Don't Worry Be Happy

For mommies, it is quite difficult to follow Bob Marley's advice: "Don't Worry, Be Happy". With crimes happening here, there and everywhere; we cannot help but worry about the safety of our children whenever they are not within the range of our watchful eyes. Aside from the crimes that are happening around, mommies also tend to be troubled about what lies ahead. Admittedly, we agonize too much about the future, when in fact we should deal on what is present.
We begin to freak out whenever our savings go down the drain. We fret about the family’s finances; we are so concerned about raising our kids, we lose sleep thinking about our relationship with our partners and there are so many things that we are actually afraid of, when in fact we shouldn’t.
I don’t like to sound like a preacher, but it is actually written in the Holy Bible that we should chill out and enjoy life, here is the scripture regarding being afraid and worry wart:

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat, or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, and they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds! And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life? Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you--you of little faith!”
--Luke 12:22-25, 27-28

So the next time your heart is troubled, remember these words. Keep in mind that everything will happen in God’s perfect time, seldom early but never too late.


  1. When things don't go my way and I feel overwhelmed, I try to find passages in the bible to make me feel better. I save emails and posts such as yours for those times. Thank you.

  2. Life is not easy. It is really hard to be happy when things don't work out right. Whatever happens, prayer is the most powerful tool for everyone.
