Up To Know Good on Wednesday

August 23, 2006

music history book & CD

It was the night before a huge exam, and I was up late cramming. I was listening to a recording of musical techniques. Identifying compositional devices was the most difficult part of each music history test for me, so I was putting in extra study time. At about 2am, I was half-sleeping and half-hearing the CD when I recognized the fausse reprise (a device Haydn often used in his symphonies.) I was suddenly fully awake and listened to it again. “Aha!” I thought. “I can hear it!”

Do Good - Surprise a friend or loved one today by sending them a greeting card (paper or electronic) telling them that God loves them.

I confidently completed the aural part of the exam the next day. I love the feeling of understanding something that was previously a mystery. On a much deeper level, that is what discovering the love of Jesus has been like for me, too. Half-asleep in my life at times, God has turned on the light of divine love in my heart and heard me say “Aha!”

“For God who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.” 2 Corinthians 4:6. Click here to read more.

Jesus, as I share Your love with others, please surprise me today with a deeper understanding of You and Your love for me.

Know Good. Do Good. Feel Good.


I pray that you have a great day as you experience and express God's love in fresh, real ways!
