I pray that everyone’s holidays are going as well as can be expected… sooo a few household things… first, I totally missed our five month thank you!!! My apologies! I sincerely want to thank everyone that is still reading and enjoying what I have been given to share. You all are a blessing to me. Really!… second, this is the last post of 2015! It’s amazing how fast time had gone by smh.
Sooo… uncomfortable being comfortable… it’s a statement that I have been thinking about for a few months now. The meaning behind it is basically, when God puts you in a position of growth you often find yourself in situations you don’t want to be in. But in order to grow, you have to go through a changing process and often times that is uncomfortable. Example?
My little brother is about 6’3 and he’s 15 years old. He’s always been taller than everyone his age from about when he was 6 or 7. When he was about 11, he started having ankle problems because his height and weight was growing faster than the strength his bones could handle. When we took him to the doctor, he simply said, “Oh he has growing pains.” And it’s the same thing in the natural as in the spiritual. We go through things so that we can grow through things. So I’m uncomfortable with being comfortable because being comfortable means that I am no longer growing. I’m stagnant…
And I don’t know about you , but I’ve personally been through too much to simply say, “this is what I’ve been working for and my job is complete.” Nope. I’m on a quest to top even my wildest dreams, and some that I didn’t even realize I wanted or needed. Most importantly though… I’m just trying to be better than I was yesterday, and if that requires discomfort… then so be it.
Yesterday I was asked if I had any resolutions for 2016. My problem with resolutions is, why do I need to wait until January 1st to change what I can change now? So my response was, to be better than I was yesterday. And now I guess I’ll add, To stay uncomfortable =).
Last thing… Sometimes we get so caught up on what we’re going through that we can’t see how blessed we are in that struggle. A couple years ago on New year’s, my friend proposed a jar. In this jar we would write down every “bad” thing that happened to us during the year, and every “good” thing that happened. On December 31st we’d open it up and read it. The year I did my first jar was incredible… there’s nothing like being reminded of all the great things that God is doing in your life, especially when at the time I didn’t even know if I fully believed… if you need reassurance of the great things that happen in life when you seek God first, the jar is a great way to go…
Okay, so I truly love you all. It has been my pleasure to pour into you all over the last few months. I pray that you all have a blessed and wonderful New Year’s Day surrounded by Family, Friends, God, and Love… well God is love sooo lol anyways, I’ll be here, same place January 4, 2016 and I hope you’ll be here too! Once again I love you all and I leave you with this…
1 Peter 4:12-13 NLT
12 Dear friends, don’t be surprised at the fiery trials you are going through, as if something strange were happening to you. 13 Instead, be very glad—for these trials make you partners with Christ in his suffering, so that you will have the wonderful joy of seeing his glory when it is revealed to all the world.
Thanks again, God bless and One love.
