    At the end of World War II, a U.S. submarine came back to dock at Newport News, Va. As it came into port, something terrible happened, and the submarine began to sink. The Coast Guard was immediately dispatched to save the crew, and divers swam down to the submarine. As they approached it, they heard a sailor using a hammer to tap Morse code on the hull. His question: “Is there hope?”

    You can’t change everything. But you can change you. When your life feels like it’s falling apart, knowing what you can change — and what you can’t change — can make all the difference.

    We all go through a time when our lives seem to be falling apart. We lose our job. A relationship falls apart. Someone dies. Our health takes a turn for the worse.

  • Don’t Let the Fear of Rejection Keep You Quiet

    The fear of rejection is the main reason most Christians don’t share their faith with other people. We’re afraid of what others will think. God has given us Good News, yet we’re scared to share it. We worry that our friends will reject us or that people will think we’re fanatics or “Jesus freaks.”

    It’s hard for any of us to truly understand how unique and valuable we are to God. And that’s why we’re vulnerable to the fear of rejection, because we’re full of self-doubt. And that’s why sometimes when another person criticizes us, deep down inside we have the doubt and fear that they’re right. So it hurts even more.

    I love the way my wife Kay watches horror movies. If something like Alien comes on television, she turns on every light in the room and sometimes pulls up the comforter to cover her eyes. Would she watch a horror movie in the total dark? Absolutely not. Many of you won’t, either, because light helps you see things more clearly.

    Advertising manipulates us all the time: “Buy this product, or you’ll miss out on life!” or “You’d be a fool not to take advantage of this sale!” Have you ever bought something you didn’t want or need just because you were afraid you might look foolish? Have you ever had someone in a grocery store offer you a little piece of food on a toothpick? And you really didn’t like the food, but you bought some anyway?

    The fear of rejection comes from all directions: your marriage, your family, your parents, at school, at work, from former friends, from disappointments, from criticisms, from just a look. We even have the expression, “If looks could kill.” Have you ever seen one person manipulate another by simply raising an eyebrow?

    The more you think about something, the stronger it takes hold of you, which is why the Bible teaches that we should “run from anything that gives you the evil thoughts . . . but stay close to anything that makes you want to do right” (2 Timothy 2:22a TLB).
