Habakkuk’s Concerto

concerto

MOVEMENT ONE

‘Why?’
‘How Long?’
Cry, and worry.
Wrestle with questions beyond you.
With eyes wide accuse God of indifference.
‘Do You not care’?
‘Do You not listen’?
‘Will You not save’?

MOVEMENT TWO
The answer ~
No explanation,
A Revelation ~
‘Watch and be amazed’.
Helpless.
Hungry.
Hope.
Faith in God’s Promise ~
Rest on The Rock.
Watch.
Linger.
Wait.
Hold to Assurances of The Holy One.

MOVEMENT THREE

Justification.
Meaning.
Purpose.
Righteousness not your own.
Grace.
Glory.
Presence.
See what The Everlasting has done, is doing, will do.
Power.
Praise.
Strength.
Counting on God’s Rule and reign.

FINALE

Sing.
Dance.
Feel the coolness of a peaceful joy.

The enemy is carried away on the four winds.

After reading this, I sat down and read the book of Habakkuk, and truly enjoyed it. It’s not a book that is discussed very often, so it was nice to dive into something new! I suggest go and read the book of Habakkuk! Don’t worry about the pronunciation of his name. (My sister would pronounce it “Have-A-Chuck”! Just read his book. Wouldn’t it be terrible to arrive in heaven, converse with Habakkuk and be forced to admit that we never read his book? lol
