Pain to Purpose!

Life Begins at the End of Your Comfort Zonesingle butterfly

Hello to my butterfly beauties! When I first began my blog, I shared my testimony of how I survived my childhood issues, and I thank God for that!

God gave me a vision, a snapshot of myself over 25 years ago that never left me. I was older, standing on a stage in front of an audience preparing to speak.

I’m not sure if this is common but, in the past, whenever I would think about my future self I could never picture my face. It would be the face of someone I never met before, is that weird? However, when it came to this one snapshot that God had given me, I can see myself clearly, in detail!

In my younger lost days, I didn’t give much thought to this vision. With all my unresolved issues and insecurities, I certainly didn’t think it would ever come true.

And I will lead the blind in a way that they do not know, in paths that they have not known I will guide them. I will turn the darkness before them into light, the rough places into level ground. These are the things I do, and I do not forsake them

Here I am today at the age of 46, taking on challenges and exploring avenues I never considered before. I believed that I am being stretched out of my comfort zone so that this vision may come to fruition just as God had revealed to me in my younger years.

Do you know that nothing new happens in your comfort zone? You must be willing to get uncomfortable and endure some pain to grow and evolve into your life purpose.


In a previous blog I introduced you to the talented & gifted Terri Savelle Foy. I have been inspired by many of Terri’s teachings, including her lesson on stretching out of your comfort zone. Please take a moment to watch her video titled “Life Begins At The End Of Your Comfort Zone”.

This video is so inspiring! Terri offers practical tips and biblical wisdom that encourages you to move past that rest stop and focus on your journey of purpose & destiny!
