BUT…Friday night and Saturday all day I had been at a conference with lots of good singing. And I just CAN’T not sing! I love to sing worship songs. And so I arrived home raspy and at half-volume.
Surely a good night’s sleep will take care of that.
No. It was worse on Sunday morning. I was going to pay the price of singing too much.
Oh, no…what do I do? I asked various people, please pray that my voice holds out. Welcome and announcements were a little rough, but passable.
But when I got up to preach, it was like I had no problem. Full voice, not overly raspy and did not break like I was going through second puberty.
During half-time between services, my raspy, airy whisper was back. But then when I got up to preach second service, it was the same, seemingly clear and full voiced.
And after service…rough and raspy again. I want to bed early last night and had to take off work today because of sickness, but God got me through! Whether it was divine intervention of honey & lemon tea, I don’t know for sure, but either way, God got me through. Thank you Lord! Now if I can just get well. This crud is going into its third week. Yuck.
