Today’s obscure scripture comes from Habakkuk…oh, yes, you know the one.

So, today I’m encouraged, because my typically off-the-charts imagination seems to be falling short. Which is okay I guess, apparently I wouldn’t believe Him if He told me anyway. So, I’m going to watch…and be utterly amazed. Because the things my Lord has for me are a reality in the vast expanse of His knowledge and understanding…something that is…
