Growing Pains


Sometimes you’ll find yourself in a familiar place and realize that you don’t belong there anymore. You’ll feel it in your spirit. You don’t belong in those clubs anymore. You don’t belong in certain social groups anymore. You’ve outgrown friendships and relationships. You no longer belong at the job you’ve had forever. You don’t have the same interests anymore. You don’t belong in your hometown anymore. You’ve elevated and you’ve grown.

You may have tried to go back to those familiar places because it’s safer than the unknown. You probably stayed because you didn’t want to leave anyone behind. You’re stuck because you can’t let go of certain things. But, in the end you always end up wondering why you’re still there.

It’s ok that you’ve outgrown these things because now you’re finding out who you are, what your passions are, and what you prefer to surround yourself with. It’s ok to leave anything behind that no longer feeds you in a positive way. It’s time to move forward into the place where God wants you to be. This is about you and your happiness and your peace. You no longer owe anyone an explanation.
