Choose Joy No Matter What

From Habakkuk’s Prayer (Habakkuk 3:17-19)

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 go on the heights.

 

Choose Joy No Matter What

By Sindy Nagel

 

No matter what I do today

No matter if I fail

My strength is found in Christ the Lord

His joy in me prevails

 

The fig trees may not bud in time

No grapes found on the vines

Yet His joy bubbles in my heart

And on my face it shines

 

It matters not there are no sheep

Or cattle in the stalls

My lips will make a joyful sound

That echoes down the halls

 

Through fire and storms, plenty and naught,

Good times and bad, I’ve trod

Yet I’ve always found true peace and joy

When I rest in the arms of God.
