Comfort Zones


Today I was reminded of the fact that God sometimes expects us to move out of our comfort zones in order to do His will. In fact, we might even be required to deny our very nature in order to do so. It was certainly not in the nature of tempestuous winds to quiet down at Jesus' command. Nor was it in the nature of the sea to turn into a surface that a person could walk on. Which begs the question; have we truly laid ourselves at God's altar? How much are we still tightly holding back, because we consider this aspect of ourselves too sacred to sacrifice? Do we trust God enough to truly believe that we can only find ourselves in Him, that we truly have to give Him control of every aspect of our being; our nature, personality, intellect, dreams, etc.?
