Desolate

IMG_20150218_132440Yet I will rejoice.

Despite,
because of,
and through.
I will rejoice.

Whenever and however.
No matter and always.
I will rejoice.

Though empty,
I will be full of your joy.

Though desolate,
I will surround myself with your stories.

Breathless,
I will fill my lungs with your spirit.
Fruitless,
I will obsess in watching for your new seeds.
Hopeless,
I will spin fairy tales out of nightmares.
Lost,
I will call your wilderness my home.

And always
I will rejoice.

on Habakkuk 3:17-18
