The only colour in the midst of dry, dying, brown leaves. The following scripture embodies, for me, the determination to LIVE regardless of the circumstances. The determination to remain green while everything else withers around you!
Habakkuk 3: 17 – 19
“Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vines; even though the olive crop fails, and the fields lie empty and barren; even though the flocks die in the fields, and the cattle barns are empty, YET I WILL rejoice in the LORD! I WILL be joyful in the God of my salvation! The SOVEREIGN LORD is my strength! He makes me as surefooted as a deer, able to tread upon the heights.”
