This is the first time it’s been quiet all day. I could literally just drink. it. in. It is so refreshing for me to be in solitude! I am an introvert to the max.
Now don’t get me wrong. I love people, and I love connecting with people. There is a joy and energy released when friends (especially friends in the Lord) are together that you cannot get on your own. And there are experiences when you are worshiping together that are different than you normally experience alone… So I appreciate and savor my times with friends and family. But in order to get filled up and find my center, I have to have alone time. I savor it. I love it.
What is your personality like? Do you love, love, love being the life of the party? Do you enjoy meeting new people and always having someone around to hang out with? Or do you feel most alive when it’s just you, Jesus, and paints on an easel?
You know, whatever your personality type, you were created by a creative God to be unique. He didn’t make anyone else like you! He loves you and thinks you are amazing!
Wear your personality proudly, whatever it may be. You can rest assured that God equipped you with everything you need to fulfill His purpose for you in the earth.
Sometimes I think, “God, how can I do that? I’m just me.” And He reminds me, as He’s reminding you today, “With My grace you are not just you. You are an AMAZING YOU!”
Go out there and be amazing!
I wrote this post as a part of the Five Minute Friday community, where we write for five minutes flat (or in my case, a tiny bit longer) on a one-word prompt every Friday, and then visit each others sites to offer encouragement! Today’s prompt was the word: QUIET. You can see all the lovely FMF posts here. 🙂
