New year, new years resolutions. Do you guys have any? I found it funny that a poll I once found said that new years resolutions are the biggest money makers for a gym, March and April coming in second as people want their beach bodies for the summer. I can't remember where I saw it, probably pinterest somewhere;). The intention is super duper great! Unfortunately, research polls say that 67% of gym memberships bought go to waste. That means out of roughly 131,700,000 memberships in the US, 88,239,000 go unused or out of the $21,800,000,000 revenue for fitness centers in the US $14,606,000,000 is wasted. CRAZINESS!!!
*If that is your resolution, please don't get offended, go get some, be a rebel and get'er done!
Lets not let these statistics be true for the Christmas spirit of recognizing The LORD Jesus. As the new years resolutions start to wear down and the sensitivity and tangibility of the holidays and celebration of Jesus Birthday start to fade, don't push Jesus off as a fad like the gym memberships.
I always read my bible through every year so my new years starts off with scripture. I always had since the birth of my Buddy, 12 years ago this year. This year though I have found the desire to not just read The Word through but I am journaling Him. Yes, it will probably take two years but hey, He is well worth my time:) I am super excited and have barely made it through to Genesis 3 but oh man is The Word good!
I want to wish a super happy new year for you all and may your blessings to The LORD be rich and full and make Him smile:)
