As I look at the rain and snow, I think of our farmers who are watching multiple thousands of dollars of crop being ruined. Moisture has prevented planting in season and harvesting in season. I am reminded of Habakkuk 3:17-19 where a decision is made to rejoice in God despite crop failure. Many times, David was downcast in his soul. He had reason to be. Our farmers have good reason to be. Then David would instruct himself, “Put your hope in God.” (Psalms 42, etc.) Hope is not natural; it is chosen in difficult circumstances.
