Above it All

Though the fig tree should not blossom and there be no fruit on the vines, though the yield of the olive should fail and the fields produce no food, though the flock should be cut off from the fold and there be no cattle in the stalls, yet I will exult in the Lord, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength and He has made my feet like hinds’ feet, and makes me walk on my high places. For the choir director, on my stringed instruments. Habakkuk 3:17-19

When you face losing everything, literally or figuratively, scribble this verse on a Post-it and put it on your dashboard. Better, write a song.

Through it all, despite it all,
I’ve been saved.
Through it all, despite it all,
I am strong.
Through it all, despite it all,
My steps are sure
On “my high places,” above it all.

These are good reasons to be hopeful.

In New Testament vernacular,

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of God. Romans 5:1-2
