Deep and Wide

Glancing through an old journal today, I found an entry I’d made on May 22, 1986, over a quarter-century ago. It came back to encourage me this morning. It’s from Psalm 36:8: “You give them drink from Your river of delights.” I jotted this thought: “This is one of the interesting rivers in the Bible, the river of God’s blessing. I can’t drink much of a river; it’s too big. This doesn’t say a ‘cup’ of blessing or even a ‘fountain’ of delight. It’s a river!”

Well, the same river that was flowing then is still flowing, flooding our lives with goodness today, deep and wide, wide and deep.
