17 Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls:
18 Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. Habakkuk 3: 17, 18 (KJV)
Today we will have a simple English lesson on the word “ALTHOUGH.” From the Dictionary: A conjunction- In spite of the fact that – from the Middle English “al thogh” meaning even though
THOUGH – In spite of the fact that; notwithstanding the fact that … yet, still, nevertheless; even if, even supposing that
CONJUNCTION – a word that connects words, phrases, clauses or sentences. A joining together, a coming together ….
Whatever comes after “although” in your life is eventually connected to “yet will I rejoice in the Lord.” So I want you to say this to yourself: “Although (enter whatever negativity is going on in your life right now), yet will I rejoice in the Lord.” You’ve basically declared that you will choose joy … whatever your circumstance.
