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.
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.
