Practice Makes Better

Practice makes perfect, right? My parents taught me that when I was young.

As an adult, I am learning that practice makes better.

That’s especially true in my spiritual life. I don’t expect to ever say the perfect prayer, but the more I pray, the more I engage in the practice of prayer, the stronger is my relationship with God.

plus signIn a similar fashion, the more I engage in thinking positive thoughts the more my life goes in a positive direction. This takes practice for me, because it is so easy to fall into negativity.

The practice of positive thinking does not mean I avoid the world and the vast amounts of trouble in it. Denial is not positive thinking.

Instead, it means that I approach the world with the confidence of God’s love and care–for me and everyone. The more I do this, the more I am able to do it.

Practice makes better.
