Faithful Friday Faves: Habakkuk

Posted by Lisa Laree to Beer Lahai Roi

I love the book of Habakkuk. Can't spell it without looking to save my life, but, for anyone who feels discouraged or forgotten or doubtful, Habakkuk is THE BOOK TO READ.

So. Go read it. It's only three chapters. It'll encourage your spirit.

Today's pick...and there were several I wanted to the climax of the song that is chapter 3:

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.
The Sovereign God is my strength;
He makes my feel like the feet of a deer,
He enables me to go on the heights.
-Hab. 3:17-19a
