Looking Through the Keyhole

Habakkuk – just waiting for God to act –
Might think, “what are you going to do, Lord?”
But God said he’d let an enemy act.
“But, Lord, this is something we can’t afford.”

And, Lord, will you wink at their treachery –
Swallow up people more righteous than they?
Lord, will you wink at evil lechery?
Ultimately, what will you do, we pray?

Wrongs of this world will some day be finished !
In Habakkuk 2, God tells all the woes –
Stolen goods, unjust gain, abuse - punished !
T’will be gone like the emperors new clothes.

But, if all goes wrong, I won’t live by sight.
I’ll rest in your promises, my God and maker.
I’ll look through the keyhole to heaven’s light,
Follow my leader – great God my Savior.


“We can only see a little of God's loving-
A few rich treasures from His mighty store;
But out there- far beyond our eyes' horizon,
There's more- immeasurably more.
