with Pastor Alphonze
The fear of rejection is real enough for anyone, however, never allow that fear to hold you back from connecting with others. As painful as rejection can be once you experience it, remind yourself that you will survive it and get past it. At some point rejection happens to everyone, even Jesus experienced rejection. He came to his own and his own rejected him. Make a decision to trust God just like Jesus did. Rejection only wins if you choose to believe that because someone or some group of people rejected you that everyone therefore is against you. Stay optimistic! You are God-worth!
