Flying off track ....



Without going into details, let me just say that I am flying a little "off track". I was thinking about this yesterday in the shower and remembered reading Steven Coveys book, 7 habits of Highly Effective Families. In it, he talks about how we are off track 90% of the time. Yes, I have a flight plan but I am stuck in some wind and rain turbulence right now. The key to getting back is having a sense of destination. As members of the church, we know what that destination is. But sometimes it seems so far away and impossible to reach, that I feel I am flying around aimlessly. I know what I need to do, and that is to check in with the control tower. Easier said than done right now. But I am not going to get down on myself. My hope lies "not in the deviations, but in the
vision, the plan, and the ability to get back on track" (covey).
