BIBLICAL POINTS OF REFERENCE:
"But God proves his love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us."
"Be eager to present yourself as acceptable to God, a workman who causes no disgrace, imparting the word of truth without deviation."
~2 Timothy 2:15
Embarrassment is one of the most difficult feelings to feel in my opinion; it is often accidental, humiliating, and sometimes even shameful. It's also hard to live down, and family and friends especially will hold embarrassing situations over your head because they find it funny. What's more, when you're embarrassed, you feel like the odd one out of the crowd. If you're anything like me (clumsy, nerdy, and definitely pretty weird), than you know the feeling of embarrassment all too well. There are times where I put my shirt on backwards or I fall over my own feet! I was also that girl who slipped over water and fell down on her bottom in front of the entire cafeteria in high school. Whenever I do silly things like that, it always seems to be brought to the center of attention, at least for a few minutes. What's my point? Embarrassment can sting, but God's not the one laughing at you; God's the one picking you up off the floor and pushing you forward. You don't have to be embarrassed in front of Him. But what happens if you're embarrassed to even know God is there? That changes the game a little bit, doesn't it? It is my personal belief that, as Christians and Catholics, we feel embarrassed more because our beliefs are not shared by the people who run and lead everyday society. So take today, my sisters, and look past the embarrassment for a second; see God through any humiliation you find yourself facing, and remember that, in the end, God won't see the embarrassment--He will see the perseverance.
