But I was reminded by my husband that no matter what is happening, God is still good. He's good all the time. My husband's favorite verse is in the book of Habakkuk. It's a reminder that no matter what is going on, we can choose to praise the Lord.
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 and I will be joyful in God my savior.
I guess a little perspective helps too: there are grapes in my fridge, there is olive oil in my cupboard, and there's plenty of meat in the freezer for our family. So, I really do have lots to be thankful for! And even if I didn't have those things, I could rejoice in God my savior.
