“Don’t worry! Be happy!” Bobby McFerrin

We may be tempted to say, “I wish it was that easy.” I mean, wouldn’t it be great if we could just turn off feelings of worry and turn on feeling happy. Well, the truth is that our feelings generally  follow our focus. If we focus on our fears, we worry. If we focus on something like God’s love for us, we feel happy and secure. How quick can we change our focus? Control your focus, and we control our feelings. What has your focus right now?
