I was sitting in a group that was talking about being active in a spiritual practice, and not just talking about it. What can we do on a daily basis to keep growing in the spiritual life.? This one fellow piped up for was having difficulties, of which I was well aware from my own humble beginnings. I meant to talk with him after the session ended, but being self-absorbed, I forgot. God did not forget. As I was walking out the door to the parking lot, this fellow was walking right in front of me and lingered outside the front door. What a coincidence, right? So I stopped and told him, from my experience what he might do to have a plan. He loved it. He said he had no plan and my advice was a good plan he would follow. I gave him my name and went home. God's grace is greater than my self-absorption. That is why I tend to call God a power greater than myself.
