 "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." (Habakkuk 3:17-18)

This is not a mere fading away of some pleasant scene that Habakkuk is referring to. What's in view for him is complete destruction of his peoples land and livelihood. The circumstances he envisions are horrifying. That was his reality, and still his response? "Yet I will rejoice"
