The Thought for the Week this Week is written by Chloe Duke

That I might sing praises to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give You thanksforever.

Psalm 30:12

We have just come back from a week of camp in God’s presence. He has been so faithful and victorious in many lives.T his made me really think, do I praise and thank God enough for what He has done? This week I have been overcome at times with His love for us. He does so many wonderful things because we are His children.

But we can so easily get caught up in the busyness of this life and not really thank God for what He has done. Yes we thank Him in that moment of change, healing, deliverance, baptism and so many more wonderful things. But do we keep remembering to thank Him later? In this Psalm it says David wouldn’t be silent and proclaimed He would thank God forever. This is something I feel personally challenged in my own life to do. To really thank Him and be mindful of what He has done in my own life and in the life of loved ones.

Let us together not just thank God in the moment, but to thank and sing His praises forever. Let us not be silent and let us take time to remind ourselves what God has done for us, and in the life of others.
