The other day I posted that my word for 2012 is "Praise" and I quoted a scripture from Psalms about God inhabiting praise. I was talking to my husband about this scripture and he is the one who helped me find it. Then he also directed me to this blog post at "Ron's Thoughts on Scripture and Life." I'm so glad he did. He shared a song from the Imperials about praise and that God inhabits the praise of His people and he said He was praying to God and felt God told him to "Praise me and see if I show up." Pretty simple isn't it? Just try it and see if it's true. I know it's true because the Bible says so. But I say I want more of God in my life and it seems to me this is a good way to have Him.
So in 2012 I plan to be more deliberate in my praise. I will continue with my 1000 Gifts/Blessings list which makes me want to say thank you and praise him. I plan to listen to praise and worship music more and to keep looking for Him throughout my day and trying to see Him at work, even in the small things. I think this is my New Year's Resolution (if you want to call it that).
Jesus, I praise You for who You are and for all You've done for me and I ask You to help me keep focused on You in 2012 and see You at work in my life and to remind me to praise You in all things. Amen
