One of the hardest lessons I've had to learn as a Christian is to work at becoming comfortable in my discomfort over issues and matters that seem out of control, externally or internally.
This is dependent on a faith relationship with God, putting my trust in God in Christ, and allowing myself to be interdependent on a brother or sister in Christ. It is certainly an inward disposition I can't control. I'm really uncomfortable and seem to have zero traction in my life so as to be of any use to others or to myself at all. This is when I will end up learning more and most importantly growing more spiritually, if only I trust God through it all, and seek to be open to God and his will. This is not only a vertical exercise with God, though fundamentally it must start there or has to be worked out there, but it is also a horizontal exercise with others. God means us to live out his will in the midst of others, not so much by our isolated selves, though there are times for being alone.
Becoming comfortable with the uncomfortable is part of our training to be godly in a world at odds with this life that is ours in Christ. We shouldn't expect to simply arrive in this, but though it is a part of God's grace to us, we need to work at it prayerfully. It takes time not only in growing in this, but to begin to experience the comfort from God when experiencing discomfort.
So what to do the next time the dreaded discomfort has discombobulated you? Trust in God, be open to God's work. Withdraw some in prayer but don't entirely withdraw from the community of God. I think you'll find what I did today, the Lord is there, he is good and his will for us in Christ is love, no matter what.
What have you learned about this in your life?
