They say “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream”. But, sometimes we get so comfortable with our lives that we began to settle. We settle when it comes to our jobs, relationships, or maybe even our religion. Being thankful for what you have is one thing, but settling for mediocrity is another. Too often we become content with doing and having just enough to get by in life. Making just enough money to provide for our household. Doing just enough work to hold on to our jobs. When in fact, God wants more for us than that.
Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men. (Colossians 3:23)
Sometimes we get stuck in dead relationships because they have become familiar and we have become comfortable. We feel stuck or afraid to seek more fufilling relationships. We may even feel that it’s easier to stay and deal with toxic relationships instead of leaving the relationship, not knowing if the next relationship will be any better. Well I’m here to tell you, Sometimes things must come to an end so that better things can begin.
God loves you just the way you are, but He loves you too much to leave you that way. He wants us to continuously move forward, steadily growing in our spiritual walk, and keeping our mind open to bigger and better things. Often times, when He see us getting too comfortable with just getting by, He’ll step in and remove us from our comfort zone.
I always like to reflect on some of my low points in my life, and when I think back, all of them were probably because I had become too comfortable with my life. Not that my life was bad, But God had something better in mind. Something that took me out of my comfort zone, something that challenged me to be a better person, something that was going to blow my mind!
