Let’s face it….We’ve all been the new kid on the block. Whether it has been a new neighborhood, a new school, or even a new church bible study class. I’ve been there many times in my life. Recently, 2 years ago, I was the new kid, or adult kid, in a new church, in a new class. Now….I haven’t had much luck in churches, making friends and such. I am very shy and introverted. Any attention put on me is cause for panic. So I’ve had a rough time making friends and getting to know people (My whole life really). Thankfully for me this church makes it easy to make friends, which I have and I love them all to pieces.
Yesterday a new girl walked into our church. She wasn’t sure where to go or what class she should be in. Well that is really a personal choice, there are several awesome classes, the class I’m in is perfectly awesome. So I asked the confused girl if she needed help and she said she wasn’t sure where she was going. So I asked her age, close to mine, so I said “follow me” and brought her to my class and introduced her to my friends.
So many times I have needed that. Someone to step up and say “Hey you’re new come be my friend” So many times it hasn’t happened, to me or others like me. We get forgotten, we’re the nameless people in the room. (FYI, I don’t feel this way at my current church) so it really felt good to step out of my comfort zone and lend a hand 🙂
