Psalm118:24

Michelle
I have been singing in school and/or church choirs most of my life. I possess an unremarkable voice. One choir director was moved to say it was “really quite pleasant” (faint praise indeed ).

Content to be a background singer, I have never sought solo or lead parts. However when our pastor/choir director presented a new song “Rejoice and be Glad” taken from Psalm 118:24, I asked for the part explaining that the line, ”Satan tried to depress me. I was tempted to frett and be sad. But I told him, This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it” was my testimony. I do believe that Satan tries to and too often succeeds at depressing me as I care for my husband in the form of caregiver guilt, caregiver weight gain, caregiver stress and caregiver burnout.

I have to keep my “sword of the spirit” at the ready.
