I Will Rejoice - The story behind the song
Grieving is very difficult. When you lose someone you love the pain can be intense. God can take our pain as He comforts our hearts, and replace it with His joy. We must make the decision to trust Him even when nothing about our loss makes sense. We must choose to live in His joy as He gives us His comfort.
Though the fig tree may not blossom,
Nor fruit be on the vines;
Though the labor of the olive may fail,
And the fields yield no food;
Though the flock may be cut off from the fold,
And there be no herd in the stalls—
18 Yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
I will joy in the God of my salvation.
19 The Lord God is my strength;
He will make my feet like deer’s feet,
And He will make me walk on my high hills.
