Missions Monday | Leaving My Comfort Zone

Sometimes missions means I need to leave the comforts of my safety zone and risk myself - my everything - for the cause of the furtherance of His Gospel, to give the good news to those who are yet walking in darkness.

"Safe?" said Mr. Beaver. "Who said anything about safe? 'Course he isn't safe, but he's good. He's the King, I tell you." ― C. S. Lewis; Chronicles of Narnia





“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.” ― C.S. Lewis




"You have listened to fears, Child," said Aslan. "Come, let me breathe on you. Forget them. Are you brave again?"
