I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. What do you do when things go wrong all at once? When things unraveled for the prophet, Habakkuk, he said, "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 will I rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior." I like Habakkuk's attitude and I'm going to remember him the next time things go haywire. Because Habakkuk was able to say "although this has happened, that's going wrong; this went amok, and that failed, I am not only going to trust, I'm going to rejoice in the Lord. Now there's a guy who is convinced the Lord is in control. And God's got it under control in your life today, too. So what do you do when life falls apart at the seams? If you need a reminder, try reading Habakkuk.
