“In order to improve, you need to play and hangout with people who are more honest and better than you, so that you can learn from them as they learn from you, while working out God’s Plan for your life.” ~ Jon Barnes
“We get pulled out of our comfort zone to help shed our lukewarm nature, eventually trusting God in all of our circumstances”~Taryn Barnes
Illusion of Safety
Sometimes God allows the rug to be pulled from underneath us, putting us in situations beyond our control. The world likes to appeal to our ego, giving us the false sense of security by telling us we ultimately have control over our lives. If you’re not lukewarm, expect to be put to the test as God will refine us.
Press through the discomfort of being out of your comfort zone so that you can level up in your walk with God. When we are comfortable, we lack the conviction to grow, opting to continue in an unsuspecting lull. Fulfill the call that God has in your life by pushing past the deceitful trappings of this world. Remember that God’s treasures are infinitely better than that of this world.
Question of the day
Are you willing to push past your discomfort to grow in Christ?

To the Elders and the Flock
but shows favor to the humble.”[a]
“Most of us are bad at relationships and friendships so, we need to practice with God to improve our “A” game, be friendly, take time, listen and learn how to love.”
1 Peter 3
Suffering for Doing Good
and see good days
must keep their tongue from evil
and their lips from deceitful speech.
11 They must turn from evil and do good;
they must seek peace and pursue it.
12 For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous
and his ears are attentive to their prayer,
but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”[a]
“Don’t let evil win the game, kill it with Goodness, Kindness, wisdom, and Love from God, which totally destroys evil from the root of forgiveness, peace, and long-suffering.” ~ Jon Barnes

The Appeal Renewed
we will also live with him;
12 if we endure,
we will also reign with him.
If we disown him,
he will also disown us;
13 if we are faithless,
he remains faithful,
for he cannot disown himself.
