The fig tree does not bud

olive crop fails

no grapes on the vine

fields produce no food

When anxiety was great within me

believe in Him – rejoice – pray

You are my hiding place for this is God’s will


I will be joyful in God my Savior


Make known to me the path of life

mighty warrior who saves


Delight greatly

Be refreshed


The Lord has done it this very day

the Lord your God is with you

Though you have not seen him give thanks in all circumstances



even though you do not see him BE GLAD!

You are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.


Each of you should give…

in weaknesses

in insults

in hardships

in persecutions

in difficulties



When anxiety was great

believe in him – rejoice for this is God’s will

Not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

A person finds joy in giving.
