I stumbled upon this verse after writing that last blog post, and felt it complemented it perfectly. It’s Habakkuk 3:17-19 [ESV] — a praise from the prophet after talking with the LORD.
Though the fig tree should not blossom,
nor fruit be on the vines,
the produce of the olive fail
and the fields yield no food,
the flock be cut off from the fold
and there be no herd in the stalls,
yet I will rejoice in the Lord;
I will take joy in the God of my salvation.
God, the Lord, is my strength;
He makes my feet like the deer’s;
He makes me tread on my high places.
