Comfort zones are comfortable. I know, it’s super profound right?
Why do we like them? Oh, cause they’re comfy. Most of the time, we women prefer the comfier things in life…such as: the type of mattress we sleep in, comfort foods (mmmm😋), our desire to not wear the heinous bra (but because of not wanting to let it all hangout we keep it on for the majority of our day🙈), or simply the love of lounge around clothes because in reality, being all dolled up hurts sometimes.
We are ABOUT that comfortable life.
But, a life lived comfortably, is no life at all. (I’m not sure if I just made that quote up myself or if I read it somewhere..hmm oh well, it’s good!😄)
The zone full of cushion, safety nets, and all the other reinforcements is of course unexposed to danger. Ultimately making life a piece of cake.
Where’s the risk? Where’s the FAITH? The trust we so claim to have in our Creator to be everything He said He’d be for us? It’s not there as long as comfort is.
Comfort is fear’s offspring.
The reason we stay there is because we are afraid to become “unprotected”, afraid to fall, afraid to get more responsibility (let’s keep it real), afraid the outside is really every bad scenario we have thought up, etc.
As women we tend to want the guarantee. Of course we want to “fly free”, but with the guarantee that we will actually stay in the air.
Well ladies, I have GREAT news for you… There IS a guarantee that should you decide to break out of that comfort zone… You will NOT die, but LIVE. You will NOT fall, you will RISE. You will NOT fail, you will PROSPER!
You: “No way?!”
Me: “WAY.” 👇
Psalm 118:17, “I will not die but live, and proclaim what The Lord has done.”
Psalm 37:24, “Though (s)he may stumble, (s)he will not fall, for The Lord upholds (her) with His hand.”
Psalm 46:5, “God is within HER, she will NOT fall.”
Three outstanding Psalms that straight up destroy comfort zones. You’re welcome. 😉
You have the guarantee beautiful, so get rid of your parachute…keep your eyes open… Get that running start and SOAR off that ugly cliff of comfortsville and see what living really feels like.
Whatever you just got provoked to jump into -I’m praying it’s something along the lines of: truly trusting Papa, or risking it all to experience everything you’ve wanted to experience with Him by saying “YES” to Him…and not diving into a
relationship lol this ain’t about no boys! 🙅- be all in. No plan B.
Heroines don’t react to the subtle, sweet, yet deceitful sounds of comfort.. They respond to the roar within them, “FLY!”
It’s your turn Ms. Brave… Live out your name. 💪
Papa, I pray every comfort zone gets demolished right now in the name of Jesus! That your peace would overtake the negative “what if” thoughts and your love would drive out fear. I pray the gold found in the psalm scriptures would shine bright in our spiritual vision so much so that it excites our natural one. Living with no plan b because we know you, is the best life ever. In the times of transition or trial in which comfort advertises itself as “fulfilling”, let your word and these ring aloud to remind us you have it all, beginning and end in your hand. You’re the greatest Papa, thank you for all you are for us, with us, and in us. In Jesus name, Amen.
