Are you afraid of getting out of your comfort zone? Fear not!
If we stay in our comfort zone, we don’t grow. The only way I’ve been able to grow as a writer, wife, mom and teacher, is to be uncomfortable and receive input that might not feel so good. And yet, just as the Word promises, when we humble ourselves, God lifts us up.
“Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up” James 4:10, KJV.
Being a student teacher, as I am now for 16 weeks, is humbling indeed. But I know I need to go through this period of time in order to reach my goal of being a full-time public school teacher. In due time, God will put me in the position He wants me to be in.
Being a writer is humbling as well. In order to grow, we must be able to accept criticism. It can be painful, but without pain, I will not gain as a writer. I will not become the excellent writer I dream of being.
I hope this episode will encourage you to dream big and pursue the goals God has placed in your heart. It’s not all about you. It’s about someone who needs you to be there living the dream.
I don’t doubt that for a minute.
