STEPPING OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE

STEPPING OUT

Over the past couple of months I have come to realize that one of the best things you can do for yourself is to step out of your comfort zone. However it is so easy to be the one to stop yourself. Something as simple as saying “I’m not good at this so I won’t try it”. We often subconsciously put restraints on ourselves and underestimate ourselves.

You see by stepping out of your comfort zone you embrace the unknown and dive into a whole new world you probably didn’t know exist. You are given the opportunity to trust Christ like you have never before. Like Abraham Maslow said, “In any given moment we have two options: to step forward into growth or to step back into safety.”
And all it takes is a yes. Saying yes to both the big things and the simple ordinary things that you would normally say no to.

2 Timothy 1:7 says For God did not give us a spirit of timidity but one of power, of love and of self discipline.

Timidity is the lack of courage and confidence. If God did not give you a spirit of timidity then He is calling you to be brave and courageous. To step out of your comfort zone even though all you want to do is stay in it.

“But God doesn’t call us to be comfortable. He calls us to trust Him so completely that we are unafraid to put ourselves in situations where we will be in trouble if He doesn’t come true.” -Francis Chan

So I have a challenge for you. This week do one thing out of your comfort zone, whether that be big or small. Then share it with someone, or even in the comments below.

  1. I love this challenge! You’re absolutely right in saying that our growth happens when we step out of our comfort zones! Thankfully we serve a mighty God that doesn’t care about our comfort zones, instead, He cares about our spiritual growth and purposing us for what we were created for! ❤

    One way I have stepped out of my comfort zone this week is by having conversation with a lady at the nail salon that I go to. It was good finding out more about her background and who she is as a person!

      1. It’s definitely mind opening and humbling at the same time. We are so full of ourselves and our own struggles that we don’t realize that there are others with struggles of their own!
