I think my body has been doing its best to not catch all of the sickness that has been going around the last few weeks, so I just haven’t felt 100% for a while. My sinuses have been draining and leaving me with a sore throat in the mornings. It hasn’t been fun, but it’s not influenza, so that’s good!
We went to church yesterday, and, as I strained to sing during worship, I was reminded of something. A few months ago, we were at church and I was belting out during worship to the point that my voice was beginning to give out, so I started to back off a little. Then I thought about how I will only ever get to experience that in this life.
In heaven, we won’t lose our voices, no matter how loud we sing to God. I’ll never get to feel that tingling after I gave every ounce of my voice away because it will never run out! How crazy is that?
So that day and yesterday as I remembered that day, I didn’t back off. I kept going, knowing that there might not be much left of my voice after the service, but also knowing it was well spent.
