I love that picture….of the humble home! Actually, I just love “home”! No, our house doesn’t have any chickens but its our little space and it makes me feel good. Don’t get me wrong – I had a great time away for a couple days and really enjoyed being with my nephews….even though I did feel quite old!…but my heart is always longing for home. Its my comfort zone.
I was reminded of a great quote I heard last week from Charles Stanley:
Your comfort zone is where your faith goes to sleep!
No – not my home…but that easy spot where life just feels good:) Isn’t that where I would just love to stay?! But I need God to routinely push me out of my comfort zone…to challenge me or even make me uncomfortable – because it is outside of my comfort zone that my faith grows, my dependence on Him deepens and most of the victories are seen! I thank Him for the ways He has been “pushing” me lately….and for the way I am seeing His hand at work.
Looking forward to a busy weekend – planning and counting the days until that sweet granddaughter comes to visit….she’ll be here on Tuesday!
