Starts with a Tiny Spark

The Gemara (Shabbos 104a) states “He who comes to cleanse himself receives help from Above.”

It does not state “He who cleanses himself,” but rather, “He who comes to cleanse himself.”  The wording teaches us that with the slightest beginning, the first faint spark of an intent to do teshuvah, a wondrous helping hand is extended from Hashem to assist the man.  As a result of this Divine assistance, the tiny spark of teshuvah will ignite into a bright flame, and the desire to return will become a reality. ~ R’ Moshe Yehoshua Hager zt”l (Torah Tavlin)
