Have you ever sensed God asking you to do something you knew some people closest to you wouldn't understand? Maybe you felt called to leave a lucrative career in order to accept a ministry position, to adopt a more frugal lifestyle in order to donate more to missions, or to drastically adjust your schedule in order to free up more time for God and your family, and you're afraid friends or family members will judge you. Perhaps that's how you feel now. In this episodes, Ava and Kelly discuss truths that can help us starve our fear of rejection and increase our confidence to courageously follow Christ, however He leads, even when those actions appear foolish to others.
