Morning Prayer, Thursday, September 29, 2016 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: IS YOUR COMFORT ZONE HOLDING YOU BACK?
Father God, I truly do not want to live my life in a cocoon, afraid to break free into the future and destiny You have for me. Amen
"A comfort zone is a beautiful place but nothing ever grows there." I am going to hang this one up where I can see it at least once a day. How easy is it for us to sit down in a comfortable place and stay there. We do so out of fear of the unknown, or doubt as to whether or not we will or can succeed. So many of us waste away years stuck on the porch of our lives, afraid to step out in faith. We are filled with excuses and fears that are robbing us of blessings. God wants to do so much more for us but He can't because of our complacent fear. If you are going to reach greater heights in life, there has to be a time when you assess where you are and ask yourself "Am I satisfied with my current placement?" Do you want more out of life? Are you believing God for more? How long have you been waiting for your door to open, your dream to come to pass, your life to change for the better? What are you doing to make your move? We cannot sit on the stomp and then complain that nothing is happening for us. A man had an old dog that lay on a nail. He would not get up even though it was digging into his skin. We are like that dog. Sometimes, our lives are uncomfortable, unhappy and just totally displaced. We want to move but that comfortable place we are in, our safe cocoon keeps us from moving. Time is passing us by. If you have plans, dreams or a vision, sitting still will not get you there. I know that now so I am on the move. What about you?
