The Here and Now

Many years ago, I first read this verse.  I could not stop reading and rereading it. 
What a beautiful testimony and desire to worship despite all circumstances! 

Now, today, as I ponder the time passed since my first encounter with Habakkuk 3:17-19, and I must consider the hills and valleys I have traversed since then.  Have I worshiped Him throughout it all?  Have I rejoiced in His salvation and strength?  Have I allowed Him to strengthen and guide me through each moment and trial? 

As important as these questions are, the more important ones are for the present,
the here and now... 
Am I worshiping Him throughout it all? 
Am I rejoicing in His salvation and strength? 
Am I allowing Him to strengthen and guide me through each moment and trial?
