Fear and Rejection – February 2 Inspiration

Fear and Rejection – February 2 Inspiration

Fear and rejection. Two powerful negative entities or events. It’s amazing how much fear alone can impact and interfere with living a happy, successful life. Combine fear with rejection, and you have a lethal combination that can stunt growth in many areas of life…and even cause people to reject themselves and never fulfill their potential or purpose in life.

 

 

Here is your inspiration for today…

 

“Fear can actually make you sick to your stomach.

It can make you so tense and nervous

 that everyone around you

notices something is wrong…

What’s more, just as confidence is contagious,

so is lack of self-confidence.

When we possess no inner confidence,

no one else has confidence in us either.

When we think people are rejecting us,

we feel hurt by them.

But for fearful, under-confident people,

the root of the problem

is that they are rejecting themselves.

They are rejecting the person

God intended them to be.”

–Joyce Meyer in “The Confident Women Devotional”

My reflections:

I’ve experienced fear and rejection at times in my life. I know I certainly suffer from lack of self-confidence  in some areas of my life. I know I need to rely on God to overcome these weaknesses, to allow Him to instill confidence; or better yet, to have confidence that He will complete what He has planned for me as long as  remain committed to Him.

So what are YOUR thoughts?

Do you suffer from fear, rejection, or both? Does self-confidence come naturally to you or do you also struggle with confidence?

  1. Fear is what keeps us from going after what we want. Once we get rid of fear, we start to live life the way we want to live it. It’s such a beautiful thing, to overcome fear.

  2. I live with fear every single day. Fear of not being good enough. I fear change the most and don’t know where to go with that.fear holds me still in my life. I wanna wake up and be fearless but don’t know how.

  3. I think fear is a bigger fear than rejection, for me anyways. I worry about decisions occassionally and thats where the fear comes in.
