Everybody has places where they are the most comfortable. When a person (Yours Truly) is out of their comfortable place there is a certain, what should I say, discomfort. There are two places where I am the most comfortable.
The first place is behind my computer writing. The second place is behind my pulpit preaching.
Oh, what a life we lead who know where we belong. Much of the restlessness of the world is attributed to the fact that people do not know where they belong. I often hear people challenging the rest of us to get out of our comfort zone. This, I say with a good deal of evidence behind me, is why many people are restless and confused.
My advice is, find your comfort zone and stay there. Not only you, but also the rest of the world will be a better place for that little piece of advice. Every week I read of somebody suffering from what is called "burnout." Usually it is somebody who thinks the world cannot get along without them. I have long ago come to the astonishing conclusion that the world would get along just fine without Yours Truly.
