Because God celebrates, so can you.
Today’s blessing is grounded in the refrain of Genesis 1: “And God saw that it was good.”
After each day of creation, God celebrated His own handiwork. Though the creation hadn’t been completed, God erupted in joy at the conclusion of each day’s progress. How unlike most of us! We tend to wait until we’ve finished the task, earned the degree, or reached the mountaintop before we celebrate. Today, amidst pandemic and political contentions, I’d like to bless your soul for celebration.
Here’s today’s blessing:
You haven’t arrived. You haven’t finished it all.
But your soul is ready to celebrate anyway.
You haven’t checked off every box. You haven’t swept every corner.
But your heart is ready to rejoice.
Yesterday is history. Tomorrow isn’t here.
But today, this very day, I bless you to find cause for joy.
I bless your eyes to see the tiny delights.
I bless your ears to hear quiet giggles.
I bless your mind to see what God has done—not what you wish He’d done.
Your Father celebrates every day—He’s ready to bring you into the party.
And that’s the Gospel!
