“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.”
Habakkuk 3:17-18 NIV
What’s going on in my life right now that feel lacking, and could use a reframe?
I will rejoice through all of these, and be joyful in You. Why? Because if I turn away from the bad things that are happening in my life, to what‘s god, I realize there are wonderful blessings in action right now for me. I have a family that loves me and completes me. I am doing work that I enjoy. I have resources to get work done more effectively (Chris, Jolly, Arianne, Mikee, HON Team, etc.). I have and make free time to spend with You and develop myself. I am doing work that makes impact, are fun, improves economies, and builds capital for the Kingdom. I’m in perfect shape to strengthen my health. I am traveling the world (currently in Shanghai, China) and seeing Your creation. And the list truly does go on and on – hence why I can always fill my gratitude journal every day.
After writing this out, it’s even more easier and deserving to rejoice in You.
