Alexis K. Ellis is a Christian. A lady. A poet, and a work-in-progress who is kind but with flaws and all.
Isaiah 50:7 (KJV)
"For the Lord God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore I set my face like a flint and I know that I shall not be ashamed." (Isaiah 50:7) (KJV)
Shyness has always been the nature of my personality. Being ashamed or embarrassed about my beliefs was something I asked God to remove from me. Confusion and denial of God's Son Jesus is something that will prevent me or anyone else from entering into the kingdom of God.
The reason I mentioned shyness is that I have experienced this emotion which has caused me to miss out on a lot of blessings. Being committed and faithful servant of God is what He has called me to do. For a long time I hid my negative thoughts and feelings when I could have been praising Jesus like my heart was telling me to do. The Lord has been there for me tremendously and I can at least show my gratitude and devotion by doing what He says, loving him, and following Him until the end.
True Servant of God
Many people feel embarrassed or ashamed of their Christianity, when they should not. Once you have been through the hardships of life and can live to tell what you've been through God will show you that you should not be ashamed but bold and confident.
It takes strength and the realization that like is more than pleasing men but pleasing God. It is not about shyness, but if I am going to serve God I should not deny Him or doubt Him, because He will deny me.
