Are you Shy?
As a young child in school,
my face would turn beet red when ever I was called on by the teacher.I respected adult leadership almost to the
point of being afraid to speak out.
My shyness extended into High
School, and I wanted an A in Geometry, but my teacher informed the class that she
only gave A's to those who would raise their hands and explain the answer to
the problem we had that day.I did my
best, but in her opinion it was not good enough, and she gave me a B+ on my
The next day, I called my
teacher to my desk and quietly but forcefully told her that I deserved an A and
she was in error to give me less.For
“shy me” that was risky business.
As far as I knew, no one else
complained, but my words flustered her a bit.She told me to speak up more which I did, and at the end of the semester
she relented and gave me an A as my final grade.
I have outgrown my shyness,
and with God’s help I am no longer afraid to speak out.
Usually I have found it best
to delay and not to speak in haste or in anger.Often I wait until God says, NOW, usually it is the next day.While waiting I ask our Lord, what exactly
should I say?
The Holy Spirit begins to
formulate a plan of words and when I follow the script that He gives to me, and
there is no offence.
My hope is that the needed
words are heard and received in their spirit.
If you are shy, just ask God,
“What do I say next?”He will give you
His words to say.
19:14Let the words of my
mouth and the meditation of my heart Be
acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer.
