Happy New Year from “THE JOURNEY”
I wanted to hop on the blog real quick to wish you, your family, and your friends the HAPPIEST of New Years in 2011. God has blessed me with a faith that is strong, an incredible family all across the country, and all of the things that I need to live a full life in the richness of HIS GLORY! I don’t know exactly what 2011 will bring (hopefully better health than 2010…) but I know that I am called to live it to the fullest on HIS behalf. Everybody has a story and I believe that every story can have an impact. I pray that my story, simple as it might be, would continue to challenge you and bless you as you check in on MARKARONOWITZ.COM. We have marked the 2010-2011 calendar year at UMYF as the “YEAR OF YOUR VOICE,” because everybody who has a story must share it in order to touch people and to reach people. We must not be ashamed of the Gospel and we must not be ashamed of the good and even the not-so-good things that have shaped our lives to this point. I hope that for my students here at First Farragut and I hope that for you and those closest to you all across the country. Share the Gospel this year with COURAGE! Share your personal story with PASSION! Reach out to people in your church, at work, at home, at school…anywhere you can. Be the hands and feet of Jesus. Meet people where they are at and Love unconditionally as HE FIRST LOVED US. Smile as much as possible and laugh even more. And make sure in 2011 that you sit back and ponder what Christ means to you on a regular basis. Spend as much time as humanly possible with your LOVED ONES and even more time with your SAVIOR. I’m not much for New Year’s Resolutions…but I am pretty big on fresh starts…and a new calendar year can offer us just that. So from my Family to yours as we bid farewell to 2010…Happy New Year and God Bless.
