Your daily goal:
Philippians 3:14 “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
(Monday-Friday, from my daily study time, I will write a short thought for that day which I pray God will use to motivate you to ‘GO’ for that day. Your objective is simple…to GO…to GO OUT and share the love of Christ with someone in that day….to GO and bear fruit …to be light to the world.)

Dealing With Rejection
Fear of Rejection Symptoms. The next 3 days we will identify 9 symptoms that may indicate that ‘rejection’ has triggered certain problems in our lives: Today…#’s 4-6
#4 – Avoidance of People
One of the most common ways people react to their fear of rejection is to avoid others, thereby avoiding the risk of rejection. Some people avoid others overtly, spending most of their time alone, but most people try to avoid the risk of rejection by having superficial relationships. They may interact with others, and they may be considered socially adept because they know how to make friends easily; but their friends never really know them because they hide behind a wall of words, smiles, and activities. These people are usually quite lonely in the midst of all their so-called friends.
#5 – Control
In an effort to avoid being hurt, some people constantly try to maintain control of others and dominate the situations they face. They have become skilled in exercising control by dispensing approval or disapproval, unwilling to let others be themselves and make their own decisions without their consent. Because such people are actually very insecure, lack of control is an unacceptable threat to them.
#6 – Depression
Depression is the result of a deep sense of loss or repressed, pent-up anger. When anger is not handled properly, the body and mind respond to its intense pressure, and the emotions and sense of purpose become dulled.
(Tomorrow continues with #’s 7-9..then we move to God’s Answer: Reconciliation 😊)
Friends: So….by the end of this week we will have our hearts prepared to more fully understand God’s marvelous provision of ‘Reconciliation’. Ohhh…so excited about us seeing and tasting of more of what our wonderful and loving heavenly Father has given us in Christ.
Father…help us to reach out today and find one person to encourage…to find one person to show Your love and kindness. We pray to do this for Your glory. Amen
