I'm running a fever; my throat hurts really bad; I'm aching all over and I've got the chills.
Yet, when I came to the pulpit, I didn't feel any pain and my voice was clear and strong.
I'll never never cease to be amazed when that happens! I felt upheld by the Spirit and I really didn't want to leave the pulpit. I did, though reluctantly!
At these times I am re-reminded that it's not about me. Thank God!
