real v. true

One of the biggest things I've learned in recent months is this: Just because something is real, doesn't mean it's true.

When what is real---what's happening to me or around me---contradicts what is true---what God says about me or my circumstances---I have a decision to make. I need to choose on which I'm going to base my thoughts, decisions, and actions. How I respond in that moment reflects which I believe more, what's real or what's true .

More than I'd like to admit, my life shows that I believe in reality more than truth.

I'm working on changing that.

How does this play out in your own life?
