Struggling with Rejection?

I admit that one of my biggest daily struggles is the feeling of rejection. Every day I wake up with the feeling, and it's very hard for me. Today, I was struggling with that feeling and God brought something to my mind. The Lord reminded me that even HE, the sweet Saviour, was rejected on the cross. Jesus also goes through rejection every day as thousands of people reject his gift of love. When I realized that, my feelings of rejection became so small in comparison.

I'm so grateful that I have a God who understands. I know I have a God who will never reject me but love me unconditionally. I know that even if I was the only person on this Earth, Jesus would still have come to die for me. I want to learn to be like Jesus, that even though I may be rejected from someone, I still want to learn to love unconditionally regardless.

Thousands of people, or even millions, struggle with the same problem I do. The perfect solution is to come to the God who has his arms open wide and says:

"For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5b


Above All, lyrics

Above all powers
Above all kings
Above all nature
And all created things
Above all wisdom
And all the ways of man
You were here
Before the world began

Above all kingdoms, above all thrones
Above all wonders the world has ever known
Above all wealth and treasures of the earth
There's no way to measure what you're worth

Crucified
Laid behind a stone
You lived to die
Rejected and alone
Like a rose
Trampled on the ground
You took the fall
And thought of me
Above all

    Girl!

    How can you struggle with rejection when you know how much I love you, just the way you are?!?!?!

    Yeah. That's it.

    Broccoli.

    Rejection is a horrible feeling. Satan definitely feeds us lies and we often ingest it unknowingly. You are beautiful inside and out -- such a precious daughter of the King.

    I pray the very root of the rejection will wither and die so that no fruit will come from it.

    Bless you!

    Like you said, people may reject us, but we have our great God, that holds us by our hands and walk beside us. We have a great God that wants us to put our burdens before Him, and He promises He will give us rest. What a blessing to find you was.
    Will be back :)

    Satan has so many tools he uses to discourage us. I'm glad that God comforted you by bringing to your remembrance about Jesus' rejection.
