We’ve been battling incessant colds around here. One after another, family members have fallen victim to a lingering cold that produces a cough that just goes on and on and on.
Last night, I was awakened at 2:30 and could not get back to sleep until after 4:30. I used the time to pray some, but I was mostly just frustrated at my inability to sleep. I knew morning would still come, along with the responsibility of getting kids off to school, making a menu, going grocery shopping. All I really want to do when the kids get out the door is go back to sleep.
The last thing I feel like doing is singing.
But, as I posted several days ago, music is reviving, refreshing, rejuvenating. Maybe it’s just what I need. “Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord.”
I help lead worship at church this weekend and rehearsal is tonight. Practicing the songs is not only a necessity, but perhaps it is a prescription for revitalization that my body desperately needs this morning.
By faith, I will sing. Right after I take a little nap.
