YOUR COMFORT ZONE
I am perfectly content here.
Hidden behind a screen.
Allowing my words to flow on the page, without ever having to speak them out loud.
Sending messages of hope and love to others, without ever truly leaving my comfort zone.
Convincing myself that God is using me to pen words of hope and encouragement, and I need not do more.
But I am wrong.
I need to do so much more.
It is my happy place here at home.
Being ordered to stay at home with no contact is perfect for an introvert like me. I could stay this way for months and it would not affect me.
But God is pulling at my heart.
He is telling me He wants more.
He wants me to step through that door.
He doesn’t just want my pretty words.
He wants love in action.
I know this will be hard for me.
To leave my comfort zone here behind the screen.
To physically reach out to people I don’t know and show them the love of God. I don’t know if I can do it.
But I know He can through me.
The love of God.
That says it all.
It fills my heart to overflowing, and that is the love I need and want to share.
Not just with my words on a screen, but also with my actions.
It will be a new day when the quarantine is lifted. To leave my comfort zone and tread new waters, but God has shown me there is so much more of His love that I can share. So much more than my mere words.
So I will step out and pursue others with His passion. I will step out of this quarantine with a new resolve that my life will be different.
My love will speak different.
I will still be a struggling, shy introvert but~
It will be Christ in me.
I want His heart of love to become my heart of love.
Do you feel God telling you that you can do more?
Maybe the past 70? days have been far from your comfort zone, and you long to be outside those doors. Maybe you are the opposite of me, you long to be with others.
Maybe God is asking you to step into His peace within the walls of your home, and the comfort only He can give. The comfort you have been looking for in others instead of Him?
Wherever you may be, will you step out with me today?
Step out of your comfort zone and into the steps God has for you ahead?
The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord and He delights in His way.
That is my “end of quarantine” goal.
To step out in His love and into His comfort, so that He delights.
I want Him always to delight in me.
