Life has been interesting lately. I have been trying to escape the grip of bronchitis and its associated ear and sinus infections for a couple of months. I’ll have a day or two when I feel that finally I’m getting over it. And then, wham! I am back to almost where I started. And this is in addition to my chronic pain illnesses.
There have been times I’ve been tempted to cry out in despair. Will I ever get over this sickness? Why do I seem to pick up every bug that’s going around? Why can’t I lead a more normal life?
That’s when this simple song comes into my mind. It is my very favorite and has been for some time. I find myself singing it in my heart and mind at all times of the day, as well as during the night and it is still playing there when I wake up during the night to change position or if I have to get up to take meds.
The lyrics are so soothing to me and are a constant reminder that I can always count on my King for comfort, peace and joy. What I really love about this song is that I am singing it to my Lord and Savior Jesus as I praise Him for who He is and what He has done for me.
But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may rejoice in you.
