Molly’s Minute: The Day The Lord Has Made

January 11, 2021

My favorite kind of gift is a handmade gift.

Take my wedding present from my husband, Vaughn, for example. For our wedding, Vaughn handmade me a wooden cross that hangs on the wall in our living room.

It’s beautiful—I mean, the thing lights up and everything. And I would have loved it if he had just purchased it somewhere. But I love it even more, knowing that he made it for me.

When something is made just for us, it’s special. It brings us joy.

And this day was made for us.

Psalm 118:24, “This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”

Today is no generic, ordinary day.

God made this day for us. And He filled it with good things—opportunities to experience Him, reflect Him, and grow closer to Him.

So, let’s take this day for what it is—a handmade gift from God—and in it, let’s find joy.

The cross hung up in our living room. It’s probably my favorite gift ever.
