As I parked my car and started walking down the sidewalk towards the new church my friend recommended on Easter Sunday I found myself immediately going into judgment- ugh, church in an industrial park? The people here don’t look like “my peeps”. It doesn’t have that “feeling” that makes me comfortable blah, blah, blah.
Have you ever done that? Before giving someone or something a chance gone straight into judgment?
Because I was uncomfortable I did just that. I felt myself contracting, my heart closing and disconnecting from the people in the room and then feeling a little superior. Yuck! In church yet!
Then I remembered something my work out coach, Katya Meyers, told me – I’m paraphrasing here but the gist of it is….”the ability to master the mind and be comfortable in discomfort will get you big results and allow you to push the envelope in all area’s of your life.”
Well she was right. I kept breathing and asking God to help me be receptive to this new experience and guess what? My ears and eyes started to open and as the ministers (husband and wife) began to speak I received exactly what I needed in their message – it could not have been more perfect.
