Hello to all, I hope that everyone is doing well, during the strange start of this week, Rain in January? This is crazy but it raining outside has really taken me to a place of discomfort. I really don’t like it when things are totally out of place like rain when it should be snowing. I just keep thinking about how much powered we should be getting right now. I must say that it is funny that todays topic is about be comfortable and making a case that we should be uncomfortable if we want to grow and experience life to full. Check out this video and you will get my point.
The Challenge: I want you to ask yourself this question today. Are you too comfortable in your life? I know you are in Middle School and you at this age are some of the bravest most daring people that I know. But you can still become comfortable in your life. You take it easy when you could push the limits, you do only what you have to do when you could do more. You see we need to be a people that’s followers of Jesus who push the envelope everyday! We need to take the challenge to the world. We need to go the distance and then some. We are always pushing the comfort zone bigger and bigger. So that is my challenge to you today. I want you to do something that will make you uncomfortable. What is it that God has been asking you to do? Do you need to invite someone to XGT, do you need to talk to God about areas that you have been hurting? What do you run away from and not deal with. The challenge today is to take care of business live outside of your comfort zone. You could pray for a friend, you could invite a friend to XGT, you could make a new friend with someone who needs a friend. There are lots of things, just push yourself and get out of your comfort zone!
Verse For The Day: The verse for the day is a word of encouragement, I want you to feel strengthened and supported as you step out of your comfort zone. 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Farther, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word. In other words God is on you side and He wants you to go for it as you step out of your comfort zone… He is cheering for you! So don’t stay comfortable expand your horizons….
The Exit: Thanks for tuning into the challenge I hope that it is going well with you and that you are growing and expanding your view on life as you journey and allow God to lead you each and every day! If you know what you are going to do post it, make it public… Get out of the C Zone! Praying for you always, Ch
