A Corny Picture

My friend Stephen Weber of Daily Encouragement sent me this picture earlier this week. I'm thankful that the corn in Lancaster County, PA is as tall as it is. Here in Ontario the corn in some fields is barely 2 feet tall due to the severe drought we've had.

Seeing Stephen's picture and later driving down a country road near our home, I was reminded of the verse in Habakkuk which has been such an encouragement to me over the years.

The prophet wrote, "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 be joyful in God my Savior. The sovereign Lord is my strength..." - Habakkuk 3:17,18,19(b)

May the Lord meet the needs of every reader of Pilgrim Scribblings today. He is the Lord of every situation and I'm reminding myself of this timeless truth as I type this message. God bless you richly!
