My Daily Devotional


Don’t Worry, Be Happy

‘The light of the righteous shines brightly, but the lamp of the wicked is snuffed out.”
Proverbs 13:9

We have a relative whose life is a constant daily battle with worry about what the future holds. His life is constantly filled with daily anxiety about every little decision, and the consequences that it may make in his future. In his mind he tries to predict all the consequences that may occur from his decisions, always looking to the bad side of what could happen. Naturally there is no joy in his daily life, as all he can see are bad things happening down the road, based on the smallest decisions he made today. This is not the kind of life God wants us to live, as life should be filled with happiness, joy, peace and tranquility. We can never be an ambassador for God when we are constantly battling worry, self-doubt, tragedy, and failure in everything we do. God expects our life to show the happiness, the joy, the peace, the comfort of knowing that He is in control of all things. Worry can destroy anyone, as we never know what will happen tomorrow, and cannot predict what the future holds. When we give our hearts to God, we don’t have to worry anymore, as He is now in control, and our future is secure. Our daily decisions don’t have to consume all our thoughts, as God will provide us the wisdom to make the right decisions. When we seek God each day, and let Him take control of our lives, read His Holy Word, pray daily, make Him first in all that we do, we can depend on Him to provide all our needs. Worry will not be part of our daily life, but our days will be filled with peace and contentment. We will get up each day with a smile on our face, and our thoughts will be happy thoughts. Our days will be positive days, as we will expect God’s blessings to be on all things that we do. If you are consumed with worry about what tomorrow may hold, ask God to come into your life and change you. Don’t worry, be happy.
