One day, a woman will come down to a river to wash clothes. She will dip the clothes into the water to wash them one by one. The movements of her hands will send gentle concentric ripples on the water.
Near her there will be a farm beast taking a dip in the water. The movements of the beast will create scattered ripples upon the water.
And likewise it shall be so. The Lord God shall send His intentions like ripples upon and across the waters.
Be not exceedingly anxious, but rather pray. Pray that the Holy Spirit will help you discern and demystify the ripples.
