Shine - Up To Know Good on Thursday

Up To Know Good on Thursday

August 24, 2006

wedding gown

“That’s not the dress,” I told Melissa. We were at a bridal shop, and my good friend was excitedly showing me her favorite gown. Her face fell at my remark, but I told her it just didn’t look enough like a wedding dress. A few weeks later, a group of us gathered around her at another boutique. "That’s the one,” we all agreed. When the wedding day arrived, she literally sparkled as she walked down the aisle and took her place by her groom.

Do Good - Get up and shine today because as a believer, you have the light of God within you! Do everything with the thought of shining the light of God through your thoughts, emotions, words, and actions.

Melissa felt comfortable in the first dress because it was somewhat similar to others that she wore everyday. However, that was exactly why it didn’t seem right. In the same way, it’s easy for us to get comfortable living day-to-day as we always have. Today, let’s step up into a new level of awareness of God’s light in our lives and really start to sparkle!

“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.” Isaiah 60:1. Click here to read God's promise of a glorious life.

Jesus, I’m so glad that You want to take me from an ordinary life to an extraordinary one! You truly are the Light of my life.

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!
