Preparing for Adventure

Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in Your law. — Psalm 119:18 Oh, how we underestimate the power made available to us when we spend time with God. Our earthly eyes are so limited because they don’t allow us to see what is happening in the heavenly realm. A daily battle is
