As a child, I was painfully shy. This shyness continued into early adulthood. As a Christian, I eventually recognized that shyness originated from adequate faith and love of Christ. Shyness originates from inward focus and/or concern of what others think.

Today, I love meeting and visiting with people! This includes when traveling. God created each man and woman, regardless of their acknowldging Him in trinity--three persons--Father, the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit--one God.

When we love the Lord with all of our heart, mind and soul; we love others as much as we love ourselves (Mt 22:37-39). Living the greatest commandment neccessitates obeying and living the second greatest commandment of loving other people.

When we love God and love others, we naturally want to converse with others, including discussing our greatest love, God. Moreover, knowing God results in our knowing His provision and sovereinty of and over all.

When I know and love God, I know that all government officials and corporate leaders lead under His power and dominion regardless of their beliefs. They may rebell against Him, however they can never act over Him.

I freely visit with others out of love of God and people. I freely request the Holy Spirit to guide and bless all conversation. I am free of seeking approval or fearing condemnation of any man, including corporate or government officials. Every knee will bow at the name of Jesus (Romans 14:11; Phillipians 2:10).

When we love God the Father, the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit with all of our heart, mind, and soul; and love others as much as we love ourselves shyness and fear or concern of human officials dissipates.

All great leaders seek first the kingdom of God, and encourage others to do the same. All leaders who prevent or discourage seeking the Lord Jesus Christ will ultimately fail.

Our love of God and recognition of His dominion over all affects our love and view of people. These both affect our desire and willingness to converse with others, including the topics.

Today, let the light of Christ shine in your life, eyes, face, hands and voice. Engage others, including strangers in meaningful conversation.

See Christ, Believe Christ, Achieve with Christ!
