God's Word for 6/8/17 - For When Things Don't Go Well

Though the cherry trees don’t blossom and the strawberries don’t ripen, Though the apples are worm-eaten and the wheat fields stunted, Though the sheep pens are sheepless and the cattle barns empty, I’m singing joyful praise to God. I’m turning cartwheels of joy to my Savior God. Counting on God’s Rule to prevail, I take heart and gain strength. I run like a deer. I feel like I’m king of the mountain!

Habakkuk 3:19 MSG

I feel like a prodigal son sometimes. I remember when I lost my way, and then realized how blessed we are, and how we gave always been so, more than I realized.

Praise our most merciful God for His steadfastness when I fail, and thank you, Lord, for all yourblessings.

Thank you for this, Reverend.
