Am I An Introvert? – Holy 30 Devotional – Day 17 & Day 18

Lord, am I an introvert? You know how much I enjoy being alone. Studying and writing are alone type activities and they’re so satisfying.

Lord, I read that introverts focus more on internal feelings rather than outside stimulation. Yep, I think that’s me. The article stated that introverts were more quiet, reserved, and introspective. It stated that introverts feel the need to “recharge” by spending time alone after being with a large group of people. That explains why, although I love Sundays at church, I look forward to Mondays, a day of rest after the busy weekend.

What about being a people pleaser? Yep, I could be one of those too. People pleasing is hard work because as someone said, “You can’t please all the people all the time. And it causes stress and frustration when you don’t please those you’re trying to please. I overeat when others are not pleased with me. No wonder, I lean toward being an introvert. Lord, could You help me Stop overeating due to my interactions. Could You help me interact with people better and have unity with others?

My goal should be to share Your love with others. Could You help me share Your love with others? Could You increase my social skills so I can work with others as a team to share Your love?

But Lord, even with my hang ups, I want to serve You. So lead me where You want me to serve You. Where do You want me to serve? Help me find the place of service that I can be part of a team of those working for You.

Also, Lord could the team You put me with actually like me?


Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken. Ecclesiastes 4:12

You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you. John 15:16

    First things first. I think you are not an introvert at all. Yes, you do like your quiet times, waking up early to catch the Lord and talk to him your inner thoughts and so on but that does not make you an introvert. Example, I am from another country who does not speak your language, but you warmed up to me and helped me and upheld me in my Christian growth like no birth sister would and that is no introvertism.
    Second, the Lord himself liked his quiet times to recharge himself. Every time he conducted a public rally or a mass event, the next day or early in the morning, he went out to the wilderness to reconnect with nature and his Father. The beautiful Judean countryside inspired him to become himself once more. The power drained from him by the constant interactions drained him and he needed to be refilled. That is what you are doing too on a Monday.
    Three, I have talked to you and you are a jolly person, with such joy and warmth and laughter in your voice and that is not the voice of an introvert. IT is the voice of a woman who loves life and whom life loves back.
    Four, ask your animals if you are an introvert. Don’t you talk to them – all the time when you are with them ? And you know they talk back,though not in human tongue. That is not the mark of an introvert.
    So my friend, my sister, my spiritual guide, you are not an introvert. You are as extrovert as extrovert can be.
