Though the fig tree may not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines; though the labor of the olive may fail, and the fields yield no food; though the flock may be cut off from the fold, and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The LORD God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer's feet, and He will make me walk on my high hills ~ Habakkuk 3:17 -19
Often, I am focused on the good things before me, and when those good things are taken from me, it is difficult to praise God in that circumstance, yet the good is taken away that the better may appear; the better being Christ. Right now, I am learning to rejoice in my weakness and in His strength; it is a never ending continuum. Amen.
