Growth > Comfort

The moments in life, where I have experienced the most growth, have always been proceeded by intense discomfort.

Walking towards forgiveness required me to walk through trauma.

Reconciling my marriage required me to take responsibility for my destructive behaviors.

Finding spiritual freedom required me to walk away from a legalistic lifestyle that I had identified with since birth.

None of it was easy….
But man… it was absolutely worth it.

There are only 43 days left in this year…. Go out and be all that God created you to be today!!! 👍🔥💥

Unapologetically Yours,

John Eli

  1. I am learning to find comfort in the discomfort because of what it means is changing in me. I find that not letting setbacks shut me down is one of my biggest areas of discomfort. Learning to press through isOne of the chief lessons I am learning.
