This Christian Candle Planter is born from my own personal story.
I've always loved candles. I love the flame. I love the scent. They bring me calmness.
I usually bought them based on the scent alone.
But I came across a candle with a saying on it I really liked "I Am Blessed". The scent was good but the message struck me.
It was a smaller candle jar - which I liked because I could put it just about anywhere.
I started to notice that when I was having a bad moment - stress, anxiety, even just 'blah' - and this candle caught my attention, I would smile without thinking about it...
This would interrupt the negative that was going on and turn my thoughts positive.
Then I started adding something like "Thank you, God" along with my smile.
Over time, I found that this candle jar would interrupt the negative and also enhance any positive feelings I may be having when I would catch a glimpse of it.
And because I added some type of conversation with God, I found myself growing in my Faith and my connection with God. I could actually see improvements in my life.
After the candle was done, I didn't want to throw the jar away. I liked the positive benefits I was getting from this candle jar.
So rather than throwing it away, I planted a succulent in it and kept it.
As I think about ways to help others better connect with God... this candle jar planter with a positive biblical message on it was top of mind... because I know it works.
