Before the dive

I know what I am going to dive into, but I can't wait for it. I want to know God's presence now; I want to experience him on a daily - moment by moment - basis now. So God is coming to meet me where I am.
I am still standing on the edge of that cliff, reading to dive into the ocean of God's presence, but the fog is thick, the wind is blowing, and the waves are crashing, and I am wet - wet and becoming saturated with God's presence. Because I am near him. I want to be as close as I can. But it's not time to jump yet; it's not safe.

These last couple weeks have been amazing. The trip Jerry and I took to Colorado was so much more than a vacation. It was a time to step back from the daily routine and life and refocus on God. We have always been able to talk to each other about stuff, but there we were able to talk more easily. That freedom is continuing back in San Diego, as we continue to seek God, keep focused on him, and trust in him. It is an exciting time of unknown.
We are embracing the dreams God has given us, and stepping out to prepare for those dreams. And as I say that, I know God is also preparing in ways that we don't even know. We look forward to the time when we are immersed in God's presence, and although some of what we want to do is learn to take that with us wherever we go, even now God is giving us a taste of what that will be like.
Praise God!
