God’s going to use you in all of your differences. What is most lacking in this Christian world is not the need for more extroverts, but the need for more discernment. We need the people who are quietly listening and praying as other people are talking, discerning about things.
How Introverts Fuel
Introverts tend to be people who just need alone time. We also tend to be very focused and we like to do one thing at a time. We don’t like lots of interruptions.
I get up very early. I do that, in part, because I really need my alone time. And that’s my productive time. If I’m writing a book, I’m up well before 4:00, but on normal days, I’m up around 4:45. I’m up for a couple of hours before anybody else is up and that just gives me my time to shore up.
I also don’t feel like I have to be a great conversationalist. I really don’t. I feel like I need to pray that people would tell me where it hurts. I have found that actually being quiet and leaving room for other people to talk can be very helpful.
I think that introverts can be extremely good at managing hospitality because we tend to not just talk to hear the sound of our voice. Those quiet times are fine. They can be reflective times.
