Dip your toe in the river

Create in me a pure heart, O God, 
   and renew a steadfast spirit within me. 
Do not cast me from your presence 
   or take your Holy Spirit from me. 
Restore to me the joy of your salvation 
   and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

Psalm 51:10-12

The river of God’s activity is real. You don’t know it really exists until you are there. And when you are there… you just ride the current and smile. 

How do you get there? There’s no formula. Just walk humbly and boldly and it seems to find you more than you find it. Like the wandering Israelites found Kadesh, sometimes it takes some hardship to find it.

But other times? You just step your toe in it.
