Even Though

Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vines; even though the olive crops fail and the fields lie empty, and barren; even though the flocks die in the fields, and the cattle barns are empty; yet I will rejoice in the Lord!  I will be joyful in the God of my salvation!
— Habakkuk 3:17-18

Even though things aren't going as planned and the world around us is caving in we can be sure of one thing.  God is our salvation, and our joy comes from only that!  Praise God!  While it is so hard to see past our difficult situations it is most important to do so.  The only way to see our way out is to see that God is our hope and our help.  He is our savior and redeemer and the only source of true joy in bad circumstances.  Ask God for his help in this area of your life.  He will be faithful........Amen!
