Reading through the Old Testament prophets can be a little depressing at times, so I really enjoyed this passage:
Habakkuk Rejoices in the Lord
Habakkuk 3:17 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, 18 yet I will rejoice in the LORD; I will take joy in the God of my salvation. 19 GOD, the Lord, is my strength; he makes my feet like the deer’s; he makes me tread on my high places.
Update: The music leader read this during service the next Sunday. That was a nice coincidence!
