COMFORT ZONE – Well, we are now down to hours before we leave on our mission trip. After the meeting last night, I am truly getting butterflies in my stomach, thinking of all of the things that I am going to be asked to do that are totally 150% out of my comfort zone. Since I don’t have a voice, I will get through the singing because I will sing with everyone else. I may not know what I am singing because I am illiterate when it comes to Spanish, but that is okay because I know the Lord will still bless me, and I will feel something. Daily devotional, out of comfort zone, but that is okay, and I know God will provide me with the scripture I need, but it still makes me a little nervous – okay, very nervous. Praying out loud, I have always been a silent pray-er. Well, I was called upon to give the blessing over the pizza last night. It felt good to be able to contribute that. This may seem silly to some, like it is no big deal, but when you are stepping out of the box, it is a big deal.
Overcoming other discomforts will come as we proceed on the trip.
One of the greatest pleasures of preparing for this mission trip is knowing that the Lord helps you accomplish all those things that make you so very uncomfortable. I can’t wait to see how I overcome all of the other little insecurities I have and share the testimony with everyone.
