Breathe. Exhale. Repeat.

How do you feel when you find yourself in a place that is unfamiliar? Someone once said that "nothing great ever happens inside the comfort zone." Whenever we venture outside of the boundaries of comfort we arrive at the unfamiliar, the unknown and we can become undone:) 
I like to know where I am going and what I am supposed to do and at this point in my life things are changing in EVERY way. The places are different. The people are different. And now I have to find a new coffee shop to go to!! I hardly remember what the comfort zone was!
Walking by faith always requires steps that have no visible landing place. If you can see it you can believe it. But when you and I must believe it in order to see it, well that is where it gets tough. Maybe things are unsettled around you today. Circumstances are a bit chaotic and your first reaction is to be filled with anxiety and stress. May I encourage you today to take a deep breath and exhale. Repeat that. Lift your eyes up to the heavens and THANK the Lord for all that is going on around you and know that very soon, you will begin to realize all that is going on inside of you! You can do this because God promises to never leave you or abandon you. He's right there. And Cup of Joe is praying for you right now too!  Breathe. Exhale. Repeat.
Have an amazing weekend!
