“Then he said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” So he stretched it out
and it was completely restored, just as sound as the other.”
~ Matthew 12:13
Stretch. It’s a word we need to become comfortable with if we want to succeed in life. We can’t remain in our comfort zone. We must take some risks and box outside of our weight class from time to time. The trick to moving beyond our comfort zone is to take things slowly. No need to jump into the deep end and thrash about. That can cause too many emotional upheavals. No, the smart way to take risks is to apply the motto, “Easy does it.” We do the next right thing, and then wait patiently to do the next. We don’t rush. We don’t worry. We take baby steps.
We want to grow and thrive in life so we explore new boundaries and edges. We find new things that inspire us. We explore our divine purpose and allow God to help us live it. We learn how to box outside of our weight class one new experience at a time, and we become better for it!
