Dedicated to Reality

I have a schedule that I love to. use for my work.  Even though I try to plan and to know what is coming, that is not the case as this morning.  I had it perfectly worked out and then a client reschedules.  So I have to adjust my thinking.  

That is what Peck is talking about in The Roadless Traveled in this section Dedicated to Reality. The more clearly we see the reality of the world, the better equipped we are to deal with the world.  Our view of reality is like a map with which to negotiate the terrain of life.   If the map is true and accurate, we will generally know where we are , and have decided where we want to go, we will generally know how to get there.  If our maps are to stay accurate we have to continually revise them. The world in itself is constantly changing.  Sometimes the process of making revisions, particularly major revisions, is painful, sometimes excruciatingly painful.

Like this morning, my world changed.  So I had to re-adjust my day because of the world changing.  I do wonder what the day has in-store.  God usually rearranges for a reason.  But right now I just adjust to what I know is the truth right now.  Some changes are easy and some are hard.  When we find out something that shatters our truth, it is harder to adjust to the change.  When you loose someone you love.  When you have an accident. When you find out something that rocks your world.  

We can find comfort in Jeremiah 28:11 where he says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”. So what ever the change is, God has our best interest at heart.

    I am a website designer. Recently, I am designing a website template about The boss’s requirements are very strange, which makes me very difficult. I have consulted many websites, and later I discovered your blog, which is the style I hope to need. thank you very much. Would you allow me to use your blog style as a reference? thank you!

    I don’t think the title of your article matches the content lol. Just kidding, mainly because I had some doubts after reading the article.
