5 Secrets of A Happy Life - Up To Know Good on Monday

5 Secrets of A Happy Life
Up To Know Good on Monday

October 23, 2006

Baby with Mom

About a year ago, I had an idea to write daily inspirational emails. I began to pray and soon felt called to move forward with this idea. For the next several months, I wrote weeks of emails while also working on the technical side of delivery and subscription. I believed it would be ready for distribution in August. However, in May, I felt compelled to start even sooner. On June 5th, the first Up To Know Good emails were delivered. Nine days later, we got the news.

Do Good - What idea has God given you? Are you acting on it? Consider what small step you can take right now to make that idea a reality.

On June 14th, my husband and I found out that we are going to be parents! We are expecting our first baby in mid-February. I know that if I had waited to begin this project, it may have never started. (The morning sickness I had over the summer could have been enough to stop me.) Even with feeling unprepared, I took the steps God put in front of me. The result: I enjoy hearing how God uses these emails in people’s lives as I also prepare to be a mom. It truly is a happy time! When we receive an idea, God wants us to move forward with it. He does not require our success, only our faithfulness in responding to Him.

"His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!'” Matthew 25:21. Read the short story about the talents.

God, thanks that when we are faithful with what You’ve given us, You reward us and bring us into Your happiness.

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!
