February 20, 2014

   Many years ago a pastor that was between calls spent some time at our church and added much depth to our already excellent Bible classes.  One Sunday he quoted a passage I had never heard before that I thought was profoundly beautiful.  I remembered it this week, when many things have gone wrong and it reenergized me:
Habakkuk 3:17-18
New International Version (NIV)
Though the fig tree does not bud
 and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails
 and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the pen
 and no cattle in the stalls,
yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
 I will be joyful in God my Savior.
