comfort zones.

something i have been thinking about a lot lately is that i know what i am comfortable with, and i stick with that.

as Christians, God does not call us to a life of comfort. excitement, love, compassion, action, joy, but not comfort.

i have been thinking a lot about what this means in my life.

maybe it means praying for opportunities to have spiritual conversations with people in my life.

maybe it means giving up all the plans i make for myself.

maybe it means praying for God to reveal Himself to me in ways that i have never thought of before.

maybe it means taking a leap and letting myself squirm every once in a while.

i know who will be there to catch me when i do.
