Word Filled Wednesday – But I Will, Because…

wfw-2008

rejoice-wfw

Fig trees may no longer bloom,

or vineyards produce grapes;

olive trees may be fruitless,

and harvest time a failure;

sheep pens may be empty,

and cattle stalls vacant--

but I will still celebrate

because the LORD God

saves me.

The LORD gives me strength.

He makes my feet as sure

as those of a deer,

and he helps me stand

on the mountains.

Habakkuk 3:17-19 CEV

Blessings Karen! No matter what... let us continue to celebrate that we are saved!

When I celebrate His Resurrection and great moments of His power or strength, it's easy to jump for JOY & PRAISE! It's when things look desolate like the beginning words of Habakkuk here, that we must praise... just for the blessing of being SAVED! WOO HOO! PRAISE the LORD! Thanks for a great word & WFW
