Keep Silent

The Lord was painting in our sky again this evening!
One of my favorite praise songs is one sung by Amy Grant based on Habakkuk 2:20 which says, "But the Lord is in His holy temple. Let all the earth be silent before Him"
I am being forced to be silent by a severe case of laryngitis. I got sick and it attacked my vocal chords. I have been put on complete voice rest. The above verse takes on new meaning for me.
Another one of my favorite (yet difficult to do) parts of scripture is in the very next chapter of Habakkuk. I've been praying it a lot recently.

Though the fig tree should not blossom and there be no fruit on the vines,
Though the yield of the olive should fail and the fields produce no food,
Though the flock should be cut off from the fold and there be no cattle in the stalls,
Yet I will exult in the Lord, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation.
The Lord God is my strength, and He has made my feet like hinds' feet,
And makes me walk on my high places.
Hab. 317-19
