Seek God

I seem to have an obsession with technique. Before prayer it was success. I read all kinds of books on success trying to find the magic formula. Now it seems as though I do the same thing with contemplative prayer. 

I know better, but as it is with so many things in my relationship with God, I tend to forget the really important things and get distracted by the not so important.

The good news, and I really mean this - this is the good news - God's got me covered. Through Christ we are one. I might be obsessed with whatever I am obsessed with, but He is 100% present nevertheless and loves nothing more than when I return to him.

Still, I was reminded today to seek God and not the perfect way to pray.
