Life after vocal cord polyp removal surgery

Hi all!
Well, I sung today. I did a lead and a duet. I was SCARED out of my wits let me tell you! Not wanting to ruin my throat I was babying it as much as I could. That did not work to well all the squeaking I was doing in my high register, so I decided to cut loose on a couple. It came out but it stung a little as well. Made it through "Waitin' on Jesus" then sung "God will deliver" with my bro William. Forgot some words on both songs and my timing was off. I could also hear my tone and pitch was off as well. God got me through those. I got the feeling everyone was expecting me to run but no running today. I had too much to think about keeping my voice together. That is something else to look out concerning the voice after surgery, not wanting to strain. Now I am feeling it now. A lil stinging and I am hoarse some. I don't know now much practice I will do tomorrow. I will probably take it easy. I even talked with one singing expert who advised me not to sing now for about 6 months. They told me how they sung before then , the nodes returned resulting in another surgery. Yet , my vocal therapist and the surgeon said to go ahead. I guess they win out above everyone seeing as though they did the surgery and treatment. Well tomorrow is another day. Hopefully and prayerfully, my voice will get better. I am highly critical of myself. I don't think I did that well, but I will use that to keep myself motivated. I am also going to get the dvd to listen to myself. I don't like that, it makes me sweat lololol. Well, until next time okay? I left you all something at the end as always. Keep your family close and God even closer.

Celebrating The Gift Of The Spirit by Bishop Jim Swilley
But to each one is given the manifestation of the [Holy] Spirit [the evidence, the spiritual illumination of the Spirit] for good and profit. To one is given in and through the [Holy] Spirit [the power to speak] a message of wisdom, and to another [the power to express] a word of knowledge and understanding according to the same [Holy] Spirit; to another [wonder-working] faith by the same [Holy] Spirit, to another the extraordinary powers of healing by the one Spirit; to another the working of miracles, to another prophetic insight (the gift of interpreting the divine will and purpose); to another the ability to discern and distinguish between [the utterances of true] spirits [and false ones], to another various kinds of [unknown] tongues, to another the ability to interpret [such] tongues. All these [gifts, achievements, abilities] are inspired and brought to pass by one and the same [Holy] Spirit, Who apportions to each person individually [exactly] as He chooses. (1 Corinthians 12:7-11, AMP)
The Gifts of the Spirit are:
G – od’s grace… the Gifts or Graces of the Holy Spirit…the “Charismata”…are available to us…
I – nfinite inspiration… the God-breathed unction inspires us to action and to good works…
F – ree flow… the Wind blows where it wills…in Him we live, and in Him we MOVE!...
T – imeless treasures… the Spiritual Gifts reveal the “I AM”…the God Who is in the NOW…
S – upernatural signs... “Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord”…O – mnipresent opportunity… God’s enabling Spirit can go anywhere…do anything…
F – irst fruits... Oh, what a foretaste of Glory Divine!...the Former and Latter Rain together…
T – ranscendant talents… we accomplish more in the Spirit than we ever could in the flesh…
H – eavenly help… “But you shall receive power after the Holy Spirit has come upon you”…
E – cclesiastical equipping… the Gifts bring life and give effectiveness to the Church…S – pecial services… unique abilities… the Working of Miracles, Gifts of Healing, Gift of Faith…
P – entecostal power… “you shall be My witness…to the uttermost parts of the earth”…
I – nsightful information… Speaking with Tongues, Interpretation of Tongues, Prophecy…
R – eal revelation… the Word of Knowledge, the Word of Wisdom, the Discerning of Spirits…
I – nvaluable instruction… Helper/Teacher…the Spirit of Truth will lead you into all truth…
T – ransformational truth… Man cannot live by bread alone, but by every word that PROCEEDS (present tense) out of the mouth of God. The Gifts of the Spirit connect us with the “proceeding” Word of God.
A loose definition of the Greek word for “word” reveals that the Logos is what God has said, the Rhema is what God is saying. God is speaking IN THE NOW through the Gifts of the Spirit, and those gifts are available to every believer!
The Spiritual Gifts are for you!
