My Comfort Zone

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!

  1. Hi Jennifer,
    Welcome home, glad you had a nice
    visit with your nephews. I love home as well, it is a great place
    to be for me and hubby.
    Know you are looking forward to seeing that adorable lil grand baby.
    She is sure a cutie, have a great time with her, and her Mommy.

  2. Well said! You're right...it's hard stepping out of that comfort zone, but how wonderful that we can trust the Lord to be faithfully right by our side. = )

    So glad you had a great time with your nephews. Don't blame you one bit for being so excited about your little cutie pie coming to see you on Tuesday. No doubt you'll enjoy every moment!

    Have a great weekend!
