Rejoice in the Lord

I find joy and rest in this hymn of faith in the Book of Habakkuk (Habakkuk 3: 17, 18) especially for reasons which I, at the present moment, will not disclose

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 rejoice in the God of my salvation.

  1. You and your blog are an inspiration, Lance. It isn't often I come across someone online who is as devoted to God as you... I was born into a Christian family but never really had the experience of youth fellowship and I feel my growth as a Christian is stunted. Since college I've been in contact with other young Christians - my hometown church is full of dinosaurs, hehehe - and when I see them singing or read their writing, I pray deep down that one day, I will also have that look of love on my face, and the ability to say that I have truly fallen in love with God. I've sought reading material and new music and overall had a new attitude. I'm still not as vocal/verbal as I want to be about my faith and what Jesus has done for me, but hopefully I will get there. God bless you, Lance, and take care always. :)
