2018 is almost in the books! Are you setting any New Year resolutions? If so, are you starting on January 1st or do you plan to start making changes before the year is out? I don’t make resolutions, but I do have a Blessing Jar. I’ve been doing this for a few years now and it has changed my life. If you want to join in on the fun, follow some easy steps below.

Find a mason jar and decorate it to your liking.

Buy a few pack of sticky notes. Get some in different colors to add some flavor to your jar.

Each month, track your blessings…write them down on the sticky notes and add them to your jar.

At the end of the year, reflect on all the good things God has done for you.

Last year I added a twist. I wrote a few things down on a sticky note that I wanted to happen this year and prayed over them before I added it to my jar. This was the first sticky note I added on January 1st. Think about what you would want to do to add a twist to your jar for 2019.

The Blessing Jar is a great way to stay motivated and encouraged throughout the year. When you see all the “blessings” piling up in your jar, it is a reminder that no matter what’s going on that may be discouraging, God is still in the blessing business and he hasn’t forgotten about you!

If you create a jar, tag me at @MissyBLive. I would love to see it! My jar is shown below.
