Let's get Uncomfortable
God grant me the serenity to
Accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And the Wisdom to know the difference.
You may or may not know what that is the start of, but it is the start of the Alcoholics Anonymous prayer. No, I’m not an alcoholic, I’ve never been to a meeting, in fact I had to google it and it goes on to more which could technically be applied to everyday life for most of us probably.
This prompt really stumped me. Where to go with it. What really makes me uncomfortable. Then it came to me while hubby was talking to me. One thing that makes me most uncomfortable is the unknown. Right now I’m stepping into a new chapter of my life that has me quaking in my boots pretty much. So much uncertainty. So much trying to figure out where to go next or see what God has in store for this chapter in my life.
Sometimes it is difficult to give up the reins and let God be in control, but when you think about it, he’s always in control, so it’s best to just hold on and see where he takes you next.
When one door closes, it’s because there was something bad waiting on the other side he didn’t want you to have to deal with. He has a better plan if you’ll just choose the door he leads you to. And when you’re scared, just hold out your hand, let him lead you through it and always remember to give him your fears. So, something that makes me uncomfortable is the unknown and now I”m opening my head and my heart to God and letting him lead me down this new path he wants me to experience.

I know that uneasy, scared feeling all too well. Hang in there. When one door closes, another opens… Just hold on tight, trust, take all the support you can get, and you'll be just fine. (I say these things to myself all the time!!)
The unknown makes me incredibly uncomfortable too, even when it's just driving to a new place I get really uncomfortable. I love that prayer at the top – so true.
Yes the unknown can be so scary! I try to always think and pray about what direction God really wants me to be going. I'm actually kind of excited for you.
Oh yes, the unknown…. it can be so stinkin' stressful and uncomfortable. Thankful we serve a God who knows, even when we don't!
Hang in there girl, I will be keeping you in my prayers
I think it's the same for all of us. It's the unknown or being unsure that gives us a clench in our gut, queezy feeling or fluttery heart.
But we preserver and get through IT, coming out the other side of a situation thinking well hey that wasn't so bad, what was I so worried about?!
I like you have never been to an AA meeting. I have a coin with the Serenity Prayer on it. I carry it when things are really going rough. It helped me a lot last fall.
