The other day I was thinking, and I have a lot more to say than I let others believe. Very few people really even know the real me, what I stand for and believe, and even my basic personality. There are even those that I spend time with weekly who know very little because of my lack of words.
I understand that speaking is something I must "concur", but I also feel that my silence at times speaks louder than words ever could. Amanda clearly has a gift for speaking, and I think that if I were to be a great speaker, that God would have equipped me with the same.
Many times even this week I have been told that I need to practice speaking more and to even do speaking exercises to cut down on my stutter. Little do people know, I am okay with my stutter and lack of speech. I am comfortable being the way I am because I have a peace that tells me it is this way for a reason. If I were to take things into my own hands and freak out because I can't always clearly voice my opinion, I could very likely be walking all over what has been planned for this stutter and I.
Being quiet allows me to listen.
