I love a clean slate, which is why I love the New Year so much. It’s an opportunity to do better than I did last year, a fresh start for tackling the projects on my to-do list that I didn’t quite get around to before, to change bad attitudes and habits, and to try new things.

If you’ve been blogging or reading blogs for any length of time, you’ve heard of the wildly successful 31 Days series that The Nester hosted back in October of last year. It was based on Darren Rouse’s “31 Days to Building a Better Blog” series, which originally ran in 2005.  For the month of January, I’ll be participating in a different type of 31 Days series hosted by A Woman Inspired, called “31 Days of Online Ministry“.

My topic is “31 Days of Praise”, and my heart’s desire is to be an encouragement to others by offering up a daily sacrifice of praise for the next 30 days. The Bible tells us that God inhabits the praise of his people (Psalm 22:3) — meaning He dwells in the atmosphere of that praise. I don’t know about you, but I love the sound of God inhabiting the praise I offer up to Him. Please be in prayer for the other ladies participating – pray that God would touch hearts and help us to make 2011 the year we submit our wills to Him and give ourselves to His perfect purpose.
