When you can't sing...sing!

Hi! :D I'm Sarah V., back from My Randomness and Ramblings. :) Thank you so much to Storyteller for letting me write this post for her. :D

When you can't sing...sing.

(this post is for me just as much as it is for you)

one of the things I hate most about being sick/recovering from being sick is not being able to sing.
Not because I've been told "don't sing, you need to rest", but because I physically cannot sing when I am sick. I can try, but then the notes dim out, and I need to clear my throat. Again.

I love singing. I know I'm not the best singer out there, but I'm not the worst either. It bothers me when I think about not being able to sing...or instead I listen to music non-stop if my sickness allows me. (like if I have a headache, there is no way I'm listening to music of any kind)
Or I tap...or I write. Like now.

Even when you can't sing...sing. Let your high spirits sing for you. Be happy and let others see it. Spread some joy around. Hug somebody. Dance!
In essence, you will still be singing, because when I think of being really happy, I think of my heart singing. :)

Let go...and let God take control.

Go from this:
"I've got all these plans piled up sky high, a thousand dreams on hold, and I don't know why, I got a front-row seat to the longest wait, and I just can't see past the things I pray today."
to this:
"I don't know, I don't know, what tomorrow may hold, but I know, but I know, that You're holding it all, so no matter what may come...I'm gonna fix my eyes on all that You are, till every doubt I feel, deep in my heart grows strangely dim."

I've had to learn this a lot in the past couple of years...throughout my whole life really. Even in the Bible it says this:
"Look at the nations! Watch them and be amazed and shocked! I will do something in your lifetime that you won't believe even when you are told about it." - Habakkuk 1:5, NCV

I have to trust Him because if He told me what He was doing through my struggles right now, I wouldn't believe Him.

So...believe that God knows what is best for you...because He truly does.
wait for Him. And sing. :)

"If I cannot fly, then let me sing."
