Can I share something with you? I’m actually pretty shy. I dislike crowds, and I really dislike being in a situation where I don’t know anyone. Especially one where no one wants to know me.
I was picked on all growing up and just never felt loved or accepted in this world. A sensitive child with a sensitive heart, I was always deeply hurt by the actions of others and so I started shying away from people for fear of rejection. It’s a cross I’ve born most of my life, but I can say that The Lord has pushed me to break out of the shell of my past.
I am born new, in His likeness, and so it would seem at times like I have it all figured it out or that I’m fearless. I’m not and I’m still shy. It’s the Lord’s light that people see. I’m still just me, a girl holding together the broken pieces of my past by the grace of God’s strength. I can’t do it all. I’m not superwoman. I fail people at times. I yell at the kids, upset my husband, and burn dinner sometimes too.
I’m just like you – a little broken, but a lot SAVED. I am thankful to have the grace of God in my life.
