Why not consider looking at spirituality this way. We’re standing beside a great and lovely river, almost feeling it flow right through us with its currents and surges. Imagine that the river is God. Look to your left to see where the watercourse originates, then to your right to follow it cascading toward the sea.
God has been moving in our yesterdays, and He’ll keep streaming toward our tomorrows. But He’s also right in front of us, on this very day, at this very moment. As we breathe the moist air and feel the spray on our faces, and as we hold our hands in the living water for a while, it’s as though the River fills us with its beauty, its power, its cleansing, and its very soul.
And we are changed by this water.
