Present Blessings, Future Joys!

The inspire4kids team came across an idea on Facebook and have adapted it. It’s a great way for children of all ages, 0-99!, to count our blessings and prepare to be more missional in our lives.

Make a Jar of Present Blessings and Future Joy

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 NIV

In this season of isolation and social distancing, every time you wish you could do something, go somewhere, see someone you love, invite someone to visit you, visit a new place or an old favourite…

  • Write your wish/desire on a slip of paper. Think about how that might help you to show Jesus to others. 
  • On the other side of the paper, write down a present blessing. Something you are thankful to God for right now. There will be something… give it some thought! Food to eat, sunshine, spring flowers, a smiling child, a cosy bed, a worship song, a scripture verse,…
  • Put the paper in your jar.
  • When all this is over, work your way through the jar and do all the things you wrote down! A kind of missional bucket list!! And you will be more grateful than ever to God for filling your life with good gifts and joy to share. 
  • Until then watch as your jar fills with present blessings and future joy!

If you would like a copy of the instructions to print then contact us.

You could print out the labels, and find a box or jar to make one for your friends or family. Leave it on their doorstep as a present blessing and maybe add an invitation for lunch/coffee/play-date as soon as you are allowed!  [email protected]
