What Do You Do When You are the Only One in the Room?
Have you ever been the only one in the room to not know anyone? That’s not a normal position. But the other day I walked into a room filled with women that I didn’t know. I asked my way to my table and sat down.
Today is Five-Minute Friday and we are to write on a word prompt for 5 minutes with little editing. This week’s word is ONLY.
Back to the story. There I was sitting at a table of strangers – everyone knew everyone else except me.
This used to bother me – so much that I wouldn’t attend anything or go anywhere unless someone was with me. I would rather hide behind my wall of insecurity.
However, now as I get older I find that I am able to relax, listen and strike up a conversation. If I focus on the person with questions concerning them it makes them relax in talking to a stranger.
How was I able to overcome this fear?
It is something I had to learn. One main reason that I changed from the fear of being the only one in the room, is Jesus. Over the past years (I am a young Christian), He has taught me to rely on Him fully. He is the One whom I need to please, be accountable to and worship.
Am I reaching out for Him? Or am I hiding away – afraid to be His child?
My goal is to help you become unafraid. I don’t want you to be alone.
You aren’t the only one who feels this way.
We are all in the same boat – the boat of learning more about God. And if we want to get out of the boat we first have to get in it and learn.
Do you long to be consistent in studying the Bible?
Do you desire to know the scriptures better?
If so, help is at hand.
