Even though the fig trees have no blossoms,
and there are no grapes on the vines;
even though the olive crop fails,
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!

I had only heard about you before,
but now I have seen you with my own eyes.
"It was through the missing pieces that Job saw God." - Jennifer Rothschild
Do as Habakkuk did and make out an "even though" list. Even though _____________ happens, I will still rejoice in you, God, and I will be joyful in You! I will trust You and not be mad at you for not doing what I think you ought.
