Scripture:  Psalm (NIV) 30:11 You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, 12 that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give you thanks for ever.

Observation:    David had enjoyed God's work in his life.   God had turned David's wailing into dancing, removed his countenance of mourning and replaced them with joy.    What a great blessing this was to David!     It was even a blessing to those around David.

But there is another who should benefit from David's blessing.   The Giver of the blessing should also receive the benefit of the blessing.   David's heart was going to sing to the Lord!   He would not be silent!   David would give thanks to the Lord forever!

Application:    God has also abundantly blest Leon!   He has forgiven all my sins!   He suffered and died on a Roman cross to save me from spending eternity in hell!     If anyone should refuse to be silent, it should be me!     God deserves my thanks forever!

Prayer:      Heavenly Father, for your Son, Jesus, my Lord"I say, 'Thank you!'   Jesus, for your sacrifice on my behalf"I say, 'Thank you!'   Holy Spirit, for your presence and guidance"I say, 'Thank you!'  Amen
