When Growing In Your Faith Makes you Uncomfortable
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive. Jeremiah 29:11-14
God has a plan for all of us. We must decide to trust in the Lord while leading us, or ignore His plan because it makes us uncomfortable. I have listened to so many amazing people share their testimonials of how they felt God was telling them to take this big leap of faith. In their testimonies, they described how incredibly scared they were because they didn’t know if their leap would work out. In those moments of feeling uncomfortable of the unknown, pray and listen. God is waiting for you to step out on faith!
Each of us has been blessed with gifts. We must pray and seek God’s guidance on how He wants us to use our gifts in accordance to His perfect plan. It is His desire for us to be successful. We are all meant for great things in this world, it just takes time to stop and listen for God to say, “Go”. Then take that step of walking by faith into the unknown or scary task God has called.

Feeling Like God Is Calling You To Do Something
When you feel God moving in your life, and you feel like you are becoming uncomfortable, just know it is normal. We are creatures of habit. We get out of bed, go to work, come home and head off to bed. We do this day in and day out. When we feel we need to step out in our faith it can be scary. If we are simply blessing someone with a meal, you might be scared the person will reject the meal or not like it. Doing God’s work is so rewarding, but sometimes that requires us to break free and step out.
If you were to ask someone who has a fear of speaking to share a testimonial on how God has worked in their life, they would more than likely be petrified. However, their testimonial has the power to save a life. But because they have a fear of sharing their testimony because it makes them feel uncomfortable, the world may never hear their story. If they put their faith in God and trust that He will provide wisdom on what to say and the strength to stand up in front of everyone, the reward will be astounding!

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
I have always been told we are not meant to feel comfortable on earth. This is just a resting point before we go to our real home, Heaven! We are here to grow in our faith, do good things, love others, and help others see the love that God has for them! Never feel uncomfortable for feeling different, or feeling God is pulling you to a new chapter in your life. Just learn to trust and have faith in what God has planned for you!
