Don't Worry, Be Happy!

January 13, 2012

As I sit here thinking worrying about college starting back up Tuesday!
Mostly about how 18 hours seems like a complete nightmare.
I begin to think about all the reasons not to worry about it.
It seems silly to be worrying about such a small thing in life, doesn't it?
But than again is college such a small thing?
The place where you go to gain knowledge and a career to begin your future!
Life is too short to be anything but happy, so why fret over it!
I keep asking myself this question almost every day.

Don't Let Your Heart Be Troubled
This was my devotional today and it got me thinking again.
As I go through life I should be embracing every minute of it!
I shouldn't worry about what is for lunch, or how I'm going to fit homework into my schedule.
For He will help me to forget my worries as long as I put my faith and trust in Him!

"Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.
                                                                                                                     John 14:1

It is possible to not let your heart be troubled because Jesus wouldn't have told us this if it weren't possible. All things are possible through Christ our Lord.
It may not be easy and there may be days that I feel at a stand still.
But as long as I keep telling myself that God is on my side, I will make it through another semester.
Here are some comforting verses that set my mind at ease :)

"I can do all things through Him who gives me strength"
                                                                                                       Philippians 4:13 

"Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done."
                                                                                 Philippians 4:6

"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."
                                                                                                   John 14:27

"What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?" 
Romans  8:31

I hope that you all have a wonderful and worry free weekend :)

  15. this was such a great post, its so true!

    Although God has been so good to us lately there are those details that we're waiting to fall in place, like Nashville really feeling like home...we want it so badly! We worry about if it will completely, and I'm on the job hunt....its hard not to worry!

    Thanks so much for sharing this.

    Also, when I was in college, when I had 18 credit hour semesters I thought it was going to be so completely terrible that I built it up so much in my head, that when the actual work load arrived, it couldn't live up to how bad I had imagined it, it felt like a piece of cake because I had spent so much time worrying about it!

    You'll do great!

  16. Such a wonderful message! Thank you for sharing it and for linking it up on our Sunday's Virtues Inspirational messages linky!

    I wish you the best of luck with college this semester! My husband just returned to college...again...and I really don't enjoy the 'college life' being married with kids, it was wonderful when I was single, but things are different after the kids come. But I've noticed things always go much smoother when I don't worry about how the bills will be paid, or if the husband will have enough "quiet time" to get his homework done; but if I just trust in the Lord that this is His will, and He will provide a way for it to happen, I'm much happier and things always work out!
