Are You Uncomfortable?

I’m stating the obvious with today’s word-of-the-week…

UNCOMFORTABLE

I’m acutely aware today that I don’t like being uncomfortable.

It’s awfully easy to write about stepping out of the comfort zone and trusting God, but this morning I feel like retreating. I want a big, wide safety net. I want someone else to take the risks.

It’s all about fear—of failure, of rejection, of looking foolish. And today, the fear’s winning.

I suspect we’ve all felt this at some point. Perhaps not, but for me it’s very real today. I’m hearing the lie that says “It’s not worth the risk.”

What do I do?

I talk to God. I fall back on the truth I know. And I allow myself the space and grace to admit my fear.

If you’re in a similar place, I hope you’ll join me in being gentle with yourself. We don’t have to live in fear, but we don’t have to deny it, either.

Have a great week.
