If we're growing, we're always going to be out of our comfort zone.
If we stay where we are, where we're stuck, where we're comfortable and safe, we die there... When nothing new can get in, that's death.
...often, stepping outside your comfort zone is not careless irresponsibility, but a necessary act of obedience.
Here's a scary thought: What if God called you to give beyond your comfort level? Would you be afraid? Would you try to explain it away or dismiss it as impractical? And in the process, would you miss out on a harvest opportunity for which God had explicitly prospered you in the first place?
This is the new year the new you. You can pass through another year, coasting on cruise control. Or you can step out of your comfort zone, trying things you have never done before
You have to be uncomfortable in order to be successful, in some ways. If you stay in your comfort zone! You would never do the things that you need to do.
Engaging in activities devoid of difficulty, lounging in risk-free zones, is life without great meaning.
Why would we need to experience the Comforter if our lives are already comfortable?
If we’re not stretching, we’re not growing. If we’re not growing, we’re probably not fulfilling our potential. The only person in this room that knows your potential is you.
