When was the last time you felt uncomfortable? Like really uncomfortable? 

Today we talk all about the uncomfortable David Witmer was asked to sit in when the Lord, through revelation, pointed out his earthly focus and asked him to ponder on the things he had received.

Often in the scriptures we see men of faith, react to uncomfortable times by fighting the feeling like Alma the Younger, fleeing like Jonah, or freezing like Peter on the water. In these times we see a loving God's response, he gives them intentional time to ponder. For Alma the Younger that time came in the form of 3 days sleep, for Jonah the time came in the belly of a whale, and for Peter it came in time with the Savior himself on a fishing boat returning to shore.

In our times of uncomfortable, we often respond in the same ways. We want to fight, flee, or freeze when what God needs us to do is seek the good God is giving us. 

>What is He desiring us to receive? 

>How can we move more quickly from reacting (fighting, fleeing, freezing)  to acting (going and doing) the Lord's will? 

>How can we use the uncomfortable to move us from where we are to where God needs us to be? 

In this episode we talk all about seeing the uncomfortable as a gift and using it to springboard  your life into alignment with God's hope for you! 

Such a great topic especially right after General Conference when we are all feeling a little tug on our hearts to evaluate our priorities, expand our capacity, and better know our Savior. 

Come grow with us!
