Fear of Rejection

The fear of rejection can be paralyzing.  It can hold us captive causing us to miss opportunities and blessings God has for us.  The fear is very real. It could be that things have happened in our lives that cause us to be extremely cautious about sharing too much of ourselves with others, or that stifles our ability to connect with  someone we are attracted to.  Perhaps it is just too threatening–the fear of being hurt is over-powering, instead we settle for safe, comfortable, convenient relationships.  There is a better way.

As we allow God to heal our hearts and our hurts, we will then have the freedom from within to reach for the golden prize God has for us.  Luke 4:40 says “Everyone was healed who came to be healed.” Ask God to heal your broken heart and your hurts; and  Psalm 147:3 says, ” God heals the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds.”

Don’t let fear of rejection stand in the way of true happiness.  Allow God to heal the hurts, then take a step toward your prize with God’s help.  He promises to be with you and to bless you.  Allow Him to do that, won’t you?
