"Though the fig tree does not blossom and there is no fruit on the vines,
though the product of the olive fails and the fields yield no food, though the flock is cut off from the fold and there are no cattle in the stalls,
YET I will rejoice in the Lord; I will exult in the victorious God of my Salvation!
The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army;
He makes my feet like hinds' feet and will make me to walk
-not to stand in terror, but to walk-
and make spiritual progress upon my high places
-of trouble, suffering, or responsibility."
