While You're Waiting to See Fruit

Idyll by Gerard Munthe


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.
The Sovereign Lord is my strength;
he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
he enables me to tread on the heights.

~Habakkuk 3:17-19

  1. Hi Valerie,

    This is one pf my favorite passages of Scripture. And even though I've been going through some rough times lately, I had somehow forgotten about these precious verses. Thanks for bringing them to my remembrance.
    Blessings to you,
    Lisa
