Matthew 6:25-33

Don’t Worry, Be Happy is the title and principal lyric of a song by musician Bobby McFerrin. In September of 1988, it became the first a cappella song to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and held that position for two weeks. On the UK Singles Chart, the song reached number 2 during its fifth week on the chart. At the 1989 Grammy Awards, “Don’t Worry Be Happy” won the awards for Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. The song’s title is taken from a famous quote by Meher Baba. The original music video stars Robin Williams and Bill Irwin.

A neighbor came over when I was standing there, contemplating the fact that something quite pretty can be a terrible nuisance. “Try cutting it back now,” he offered, “and it won’t have time to recover. That might kill it.”

What is StoryShare?

StoryShare is a treasure house with hundreds of good stories to share, stories which relate authentic, life-changing experiences that demonstrate the Lord's power and presence. Many are intensely personal accounts that concern visions, healing, or answers to prayers, but all bear witness to the indescribable joy, comfort and peace that come from a personal encounter with the divine. Our "Good Stories" section includes short fiction, parables much like those Jesus told.

Can I share stories that I have?
Yes, you can. You have good stories to share too, probably more than you know: personal stories, and stories from others that you have used over the years. StoryShare is always looking for "vision stories," stories involving personal experiences of the presence of God. Have you or someone you know heard the voice of God or been healed as a direct answer to prayer? If you have a story that you can share, especially about extraordinary spiritual experiences of ordinary people, send it to StoryShare for review. Simply click here ( and email your story to us.
