Happy Thanksgiving, dear ones. I am reminded this morning of Habakkuk 3:17-19--
"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..." (ESV).
It feels like the constant refrain of society recently has been "economic recession," and yet as children of God, the physical trials are just one stanza of the song. Our chorus must remain "yet I will rejoice in the LORD; I will take joy in the God of my salvation." That's my challenge for myself today, to keep my focus on Him. I trust you'll have a wonderful Thanksgiving trusting in Him as well.
