Out of Our Comfort Zone

Article submitted by Brad & Cami Matlack, Field Coordinators in Kenya

This morning, I am longing…

…for one day back at our beautiful, familiar church …for one trip to the beach with all of our long-time, comfortable friends …for one relaxing afternoon at the park with our family (without looking around for potential dangers) …one simple laundry day …a long fellowship and prayer time with a close friend…

The tears feel close to the surface – normal just isn’t “normal”!

I’m encouraged this morning by these words from Ann Voskamp. “When God moves us out of our comfort zone —- into places that are way bigger than us, places that are difficult, hard, painful —- that even hurt — this is a gift. We are being given a gift. These hard places give us the gift of intimately knowing God — in ways that would never be possible in our comfort zones.”
