The Joy in Hard Days


Though the fig tree should not blossom,
nor fruit be on the vines,
the produce of the olive fail
and the fields yield no food,
the flock be cut off from the fold
and there be no herd in the stalls,
yet I will rejoice in the Lord;
I will take joy in the God of my salvation.
Habakkuk 3:17-18

The Lord sent me right to this passage this morning and I'm so glad! I love how the footnotes read, "Habakkuk has learned that he can trust God, and with trust comes great joy, not in circumstances but in God himself."
