Monday Motivation: Wanna Be Happy…

Hey y’all

Kirk Franklin is back! He released his new song this past week entitled, ” Wanna Be Happy”. The lyrics read so true! It touches on a topic that is so relevant. We, as humans want to be happy but we keep on doing the same things over and over again that keep us far away from our desired happiness. We find ourselves stuck in a rut. We choose to cry and whine and stay in our dark hole instead of trying to do something about it, and when we do, we leave our happiness in the hands of peers, family and even social media!

Now, all of those things are great sources of joy and happiness but that isn’t the main source! Many people stress the fact that happiness comes from within ( and yes I agree to an extent) but I lean more on finding my happiness in my faith. I know I certainly don’t have all the answers to life but the key to my happiness is knowing that someone greater than I has my future in His hands! If you’re tired of things not changing, try looking for joy in a new place. Instead of seeking happiness in an unsatisfying relationship,or in the bottom of a bottle try Christ.

 Everything you have been searching for is in HIs hands! It’s up to you to allow Him to put His plan in motion. One section in the song states ” I just wanna be happy /But if I keep on doing the things /That keep on bringing me pain/There’s no one else I can blame /If I’m not happy/Wasted time but now I can see/The biggest enemy is me So I’m not happy…..

It’s so true! Sometimes WE are the ones standing in the way of our own happiness! So get out of the way and let God do His thing!!!!!  Take a moment and meditate on Psalms 37:4  which reads…


“Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you your heart’s desires.”

The truth can hurt you
Or the truth can change you
What would truth do to you

I just wanna be happy
But if I keep on doing the things
That keep on bringing me pain
There’s no one else I can blame
If I’m not happy
Wasted time but now I can see
The biggest enemy is me
So I’m not happy

Cry yourself to sleep
Shout and raise your hands
It wont change a thing child
Until you understand

If you’re tired of being the same
If you’re tired of things not changing
It’s time for you to get out the way
Don’t get stuck in how you feel
Say Jesus take the wheel
He knows the road that you need to take
(But it only works if)
If you wanna be happy
(Look at yourself and say)
Don’t you wanna be happy
I just wanna be happy

But if I keep on giving my heart
For people to tear apart
The healing will never start
So I can be happy
Will I ever be happy

Cry yourself to sleep
Shout and raise your hands
It wont change a thing child
Until you understand

(If I’m talking to you now say)
If you’re tired of being the same
If you’re tired of things not changing
It’s time for you to get out the way
(You been down too long)
Don’t get stuck in how you feel
Say Jesus take the wheel
He knows the road that you need to take
(I feel different right here)
It’s so easy to complain
Addicted to the pain
You give you heart, they push it away
(But I got good news for ya)
Jesus knows just how you feel
Just let him take the wheel
The love you need, he already gave
(But the question is)
Do you wanna be happy
(If you’re tired of you then say)
I just wanna be happy
(Now if you really mean that, open up your heart and say it)

Let me hear you say yeah
Yeah yeah
(If you’re tired of going in circles)
Let me hear you say yeah
Yeah yeah
(Tired of making the same mistakes)
Let me hear you say yeah
Yeah yeah
(But now’s your chance)
Let me hear you say yeah
(Say yeah)
Yeah yeah

If you’re tired of being the same
If you’re tired of things not changing
It’s time for you to get out the way
(Are you ready, come on)
Don’t get stuck in how you feel
Say Jesus take the wheel
(What you doin’)
He knows the road that you need to take
(So easy to complain)
It’s so easy to complain
(Come on)
Addicted to the pain
You give you heart, they push it away
(There’s somebody that’ll never leave ya)
Jesus knows just how you feel
Just let him take the wheel
The love you need, he already gave
(But the question is)
Do you wanna be happy
(Took a long time but I’m ready)
I just wanna be happy
(Thank you Lord, every day ask yourself)
Do you wanna be happy
(Yes, pull over, let him drive)
I just wanna be happy
