I get nervous but I'm not really scared. If I am to look timid then honestly, who cares? Judgement can take it's place. I want to think about the mistake. The failure of not being myself completely, but I gaze at the cross and accept my forever weakness. I cannot make up for this day. The day that I walked up to a friend whom I know to an extent but yet in her presence I could not help but be nervous. My words were slur, my conversation was awkward, my body was numb. For a moment I had the devil tell me "man you are dumb." My worth is not in the moment. Thank God I was myself! I am not perfect. My identity resides in Christ even in my nervousness. #letusnotbedefinebyournervousness
