Stepping Out of My Comfort Zone


Recently I went out of town by myself for an extended period of time. This was a time to experience the Father at deeper levels and grow in my relationship with Him. I had not ever been this far away from home on my own and while I enjoyed my trip and loved the quiet time with the Lord I missed my family and friends a great deal. The truth is, that as the trip neared the end, I was trying to figure out how I could come home a little sooner. I was tired. I felt slightly isolated because I was so far away from the people I love, and even at the end I was having to do new things everyday because this was a new place. Did I mention new things can be hard? Each day I had to choose to step out of my comfort zone and meet new people, sit with and possibly have uncomfortable conversations, and go to new places if I wanted to be around and see new things.
