Even Though

Even though...
Even though...
Even though…
Yet I will rejoice in the Lord; 
I will exult in my victorious God!
The Lord God is my strength, 
my personal bravery, and my invincible army. 
He makes my feet like hinds’ feet and 
will make me to walk--not to stand still in terror, 
but to walk and make spiritual progress 
upon my high places 
of trouble, suffering, or responsibility!
Habakkuk 3:17-19
Habakkuk is talking about fig trees,
olive crops and flocks of cattle.
Nothing is working out for him.
He was facing troubles, suffering 
or responsibilities that challenged him--
 but he declared his trust in the Lord.
This morning, I say that 
"even though" there are struggles, 
I rejoice in You, Lord.
You are my personal bravery
and my invincible army.
You will help me walk on my high places--
not stand still in worry or anxiety--
but walk victoriously through this day.
I will make "spiritual progress"--
becoming more like You as I fix 
my gaze and listen for Your voice.
Even though... 
I will rejoice in You.
