Within your comfort zone you are safe from failure because of course, how can you fail if you never even try? However, likewise you can’t SUCCEED if you never TRY. Now I’m sure you want to succeed in life; and I’m sure there’s a lot of fun and exciting things you want to do. But I’m telling you, if you’re not willing to COME OUT of that comfort zone you will never experience FULLNESS of life. I tell you every Friday that you are FREE; and I only say this because the Bible says so too! Now Galatians 5:13 (New King James Version) instructs us saying, “For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.” This scripture is simply telling us that we shouldn’t use our freedom as a license to go out doing every BAD thing we want to do just because it feels good to our flesh.
However, we CAN use our freedom to do GOOD things, things that are new and exciting; while also GODLY and rooted in LOVE. Now I know there are new things you want to try; whether it’s trying to start a small business, going back to school, or simply traveling to a new place. If it’s a righteous thing, something that doesn’t go against the Word of God, YOU CAN DO IT! You’ve just got to step out of that comfort zone in order to do it. Me personally, I’ve never been a good dancer. So I’ve decided to sign up for a rather cheap dance class that looks like it will be quite fun and definitely new for me! Out of my comfort zone I go!
Listen, if you want to FEEL something new you’ve got to DO something new! Get out of that comfort zone; and have FUN but remember to stay GODLY. You are free; so live like it. Feel free my friends, FEEL FREE!
