God Called an Introvert.... Will She Answer?

What happens when God calls and introvert to do something that requires spending time with others in a busy environment? And what happens when that introvert also suffers from social anxiety? I guess we are going to find out.

One thing I know for sure is that I am trying to answer God's call. In order to answer, I must leave my comfort zone.

Leaving...........

It is time to leave.
Time to leave my comfort zone.
Time to leave the shelter of isolation that I have created for myself.
Time to step out in faith and follow the path God has constructed for me.

It's terrifying!

The idea of going out into the world and mingling with other people frightens me like nothing else could. I feel my heart begin to race and my blood pressure spike just thinking of it. New things, new places, new people... they fill me with dread.

I feel as though I may have an anxiety attack at the mere thought of it.

And yet...
I am now resolving to face this terror that haunts me. It is God's will. I can see that now.
He needs me to step out into the world in faith.
He needs me to step out of this sheltered cocoon I have wrapped tightly about myself.
He needs me to simply step out.

I have felt the call to big things but I cannot answer that call until I first answer this one. This terrifying call to break from isolation and step out.

These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.
