Take Heart

Habakkuk 3:17-19Though the cherry trees dont blossom and the strawberries dont ripen, though the apples are worm-eaten and the wheat fields stunted, though the sheep pens are sheep-less and the cattle barns empty, Im singing joyful praise to God. Im turning cartwheels of joy to my Savior God. Counting on GODS Rule to prevail, I take heart and gain strength. I run like a deer. I feel like I am king of the mountain (MSG).                                                                                                                                                                                                                  

Once in a while, life’s circumstances seem too hard to bear. When I had cancer, God used this passage to encourage me to hang on, no matter what. He will do the same for you. Put your problems in the blanks below. Meditate on His faithfulness and your response.
