Thomas Merton

If you find God with great ease...perhaps it is not God that you have found.

Thomas Merton, quoted in chapter two of Reaching for the Invisible God, by Philip Yancey.

I've begun to read Yancey's book again, after having felt for some time that it wasn't his best. In fact, it's as good as most of his work; I probably wasn't in the right place to read it last time. And the fact that it's greatly about 'doubt' is very helpful to me at present, when I'm struggling with this very issue.
