Yet I Will Rejoice (Habakkuk 3:18 )

Life in our world can be difficult. At some point, most of us have wondered, Where is God in my trouble? And we may have thought. It seems like injustice is winning and God is silent. We have a choice as to how we respond to our troubles. The prophet Habakkuk had an attitude worth following: He made the choice to rejoice.

We too can rejoice in our trials, have sure-footed (unlikely to stumble or fall) confidence in God, and live on the heights of His sovereignty. – Marvin Williams

Be this the purpose of my soul

My solemn, my determined choice;

To yield to God’s supreme control,

And in my every trial rejoice. – Anon

Praising God in our trials turns burdens into blessings.
