Thought for the day

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 LORD is my strength;
he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
he enables me to tread on the heights.—Habakkuk 3:17-19 TNIV

<idle musing>
This has probably got to be one of my favorite set of verses in the Bible. Habakkuk has argued with God and then seen a theophany of judgment. What other response can you have? He's seen the end—God wins; nothing else matters. All the stuff in between is just a distraction. Not really, but you get my drift.
