Leaving Our Comfort Zones

Liiiiiiiiisten. I like my comfort zone just as much as the next person. But when God calls me out into the deep? There’s a kind of exhilaration involved with getting out of my comfort zone to meet Him there. You know, the kind that’s a mix of giddiness and a little nausea? That’s what I experienced this spring when I booked a professional photoshoot. I wanted to revamp this site and also use the photos for marketing the Guide to Grace-Filled Living planner. But much like Peter, I realized I was out of my comfort zone, out in the deep so I let the photos sit in a folder on my hard drive for months. And I let this site sit here on Al Gore’s internet untouched for a year.

But here we are staring at the last few days of 2021 and looking out on the horizon of the incoming year. And while I’m not experiencing that exhilarating feeling, I am going to step out of my comfort zone and share some photos from the shoot. I was going to share info about the newest edition of the planner as well but inventory is limited and if I can figure out how to make a PDF version available for purchase I’ll update this post.

Is there anything you let “sit” in 2021 that you feel led to get after in 2022? Any invitations to get out of your comfort zone that you simply didn’t RSVP? Well, I hope to see you out on the water in 2022!
