Adios to comfort barriers


"A ship in a harbour is safe, but that is not what a ship was designed for" To be at home safe, guarded and chilled-back seems like the life but what what kind of life is it when you do not go beyond the walls of safety and have an adventure? These past few weeks God came to shift my comfort walls to a point where I was faced with situations that I was ready to give up on everything I ever believed was true. I was faced with a lot of "why do you want me here Lord" and everytime I just felt His heart saying... so I can be glorified through your life and actions. So far our training has been a real challenge but a good one. Every challenge (whether it be mental, spiritual, physical, emotional) God always came and show His love and provision and the "why" was always answered (not fully but every puzzle piece made sense) At one stage God really surprised me by showing me that I can go beyond what I thought was my limit. I am not a very sporty person and a lot of the challenges we had to encounter was hill up or hill down. Running between challenges, tired and out of breath my team mate encouraged me up the hill and before I knew it I was running up! I think both myself and my team mate had to take a moment to come over the adrinaline shock. That's when I realized the importance of having a team. Inside your comfort you don't always see the value of the people around you. When you experience an earthquack and your comfort walls are down and you are vulnerable that's where I learned the value of having a team who not only support me but we can have each others backs as we are faced with the same challenges. "A ship in a harbour is safe, but that is not what a ship was designed for"... I am ready this year be be the ship that God sends to sail beyond the harbour's safety and be a light to every tribe, nation and tongue.
