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.
I really love these verses. It is such a big thing to live out for this frail, failing, and often complaining female. But I still love them. I want very much to rejoice even when I don’t feel well, even when life seems hard or uncertain, even when the laundry is endless and the dishes are piled, even when children are whiny and their mother is too, even when I really don’t feel like rejoicing. Even then.
You can hop over here to Incourage and download a free desktop calendar that has these verses on it. It is very pretty and has been brightening up my computer’s desktop for May!
What is something you are rejoicing in today?
