Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Most people should be familiar with Bob Marley’s rendition of “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”

Breaking free

We are never free from the waves of what a day may throw at us. If our worries are not about clothes and food, it may be about money, friends, family, relationships, marriage, careers or generally difficult circumstances. These things will come in like a flood, unless we allow the Spirit of God to raise up defenses against it.

God says to us: “I say to you, do not worry about your life . . . .” Be concerned only with your relationship with Him. Our BREAKING FREE sense says, “That’s crazy, I must consider how I am going to live, and I must consider what I am going to eat and drink.” But Jesus says you must not. Jesus Christ knows our circumstances better than we do, and He says we must not think about these things to the point where they become the primary concern of our life. Be sure you always put your relationship to God first.

Keep your eyes on Jesus!

Don't Worry, Be Happy, Smiley,


Here’s a little song I wrote
You might want to sing it note for note
Don’t worry, be happy
In every life we have some trouble
But when you worry you make it double
Don’t worry, be happy
Don’t worry, be happy now don’t worry
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh) be happy
(Repeat x5)

Ain’t got no place to lay your head
Somebody came and took your bed
Don’t worry, be happy
The landlord say your rent is late
He may have to litigate
Don’t worry, be happy

Oh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh don’t worry, be happy
Here I give you my phone number, when you worry, call me, I make you happy, don’t worry, be happy)
Don’t worry, be happy
Ain’t got no cash, ain’t got no style
Ain’t got no gal to make you smile
Don’t worry, be happy
‘Cause when you worry your face will frown
And that will bring everybody down
So don’t worry, be happy Don’t worry, be happy now
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don’t worry
(x5 Repeat)

Now there, is this song I wrote
I hope you learned note for note
Like good little children, don’t worry, be happy
Now listen to what I said, in your life expect some trouble
When you worry you make it double
But don’t worry, be happy, be happy now don’t worry
