…Yet I will rejoice.

This morning I read through the book of Habakkuk. The book transposes the conversations between the prophet Habakkuk and God. Throughout the book Habakkuk is pleading with God for justice and healing in his land. My favorite part of the book, though, is Habakkuk’s final response:

“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.”
Habakkuk 3:17-18

In the midst of your circumstances and whatever life has thrown your way, know that there is still joy for you. There is still joy in the mundane, in the place of no return. When we see destruction, take joy, God is at work.
