“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”
~ Habakkuk 3:17-18
My body is like the fig tree that doesn’t bud. My reproductive system is like the olive crop that fails and the field that produces nothing. My family of two is like a vine without the grapes. My womb is empty like a pen without sheep and my empty bedrooms are like stalls without cattle. Yet I will rejoice. I will be joyful in the God who promises to save me.
