Comfortable In The Uncomfortable
And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side. – Mark 4:35
Many times we want to stay in the boat, stay in our section of the sea, stay in our nice, comfortable house, drive our nice, comfortable car, and make no effort whatsoever to stretch out of our comfort zone.
I have been like this for most of my life. Afraid to pass over to the other side, into the things that might be a little more challenging, a little more adventurous, a little more dangerous.
However, we are not called to be mediocre Believers. We aren’t called to stay in our comfort zone. We are called to “Go into all the world (Mark 16:15).” We are called to win the world for Christ.
Our only comfort zone should be abiding in the Shadow of the Almighty (Psalm 91:1).
We can rest in God’s peace by guarding our hearts from trouble. When we do, we will start to be comfortable in the uncomfortable, to be peaceful even when things around us aren’t.
