“When God wants you to grow he makes you uncomfortable.”
I was just debating with myself and trying to figure out a topic for my blog post for the week with no luck…then I was scrolling through Facebook and saw this “when God wants you to grow he makes you uncomfortable.” So, I guess I found the topic for my post! The universe truly works in mysterious ways! One of my favorite books is ” The Secret-by Rhonda Byrne” it’s a great book about the universe and the law of attraction. Ultimately, what we put out into the universe comes back to us be it good or bad.
But, back to the topic at hand, I truly believe that when God wants you to grow, he makes you uncomfortable. The ironic part is that my sister and I were just having this conversation this past weekend and I was telling her that God is always pushing me to do more and to be more because unlike some other people that I know, I haven’t been allowed to be comfortable. With every job that I’ve had there has been some level of discomfort, even when I’ve allowed myself to try to get to a certain level of comfort something happens to keep me on my toes.
I would say that most people don’t pursue change until they get uncomfortable. It’s easier to stay in your comfort zone versus stepping out of the box. Change can be pretty painful especially when it doesn’t look or feel the way that you envisioned. One of my favorite saying is “want to make God laugh, keep making plans.” Our plan for ourselves versus god’s plan typically differ from what we envisioned!
I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a bit of a control freak. I like things to be neat, organized and in perfect order. I often get frustrated and impatient when things don’t work out according to my plan. One of the biggest lessons that I’ve learned since becoming a mom is that I’m not in control. At my first prenatal doctor’s appointment while pregnant with Kodie the doctor told me that my due date was 3/25/14. Then about a month or so later, that date was changed to 2/23 and finally when I was around eight-months pregnant I was told that my due date would be 3/1. God, howver, had other plans and so did Kodie. He made his grand entrance on 2/5/14, four days before my baby shower LOL. Luckily, I was able to make it to my baby shower but this wasn’t part of my plan Lol!
Sometimes you just have to get out of your own way and allow God and the universe to work its magic!
