This week I am sharing on YouTube about dealing with rejection. I have gotten a lot of questions lately from women who are really hurting from being rejected by someone and I can SO relate with that topic! It is very near to my heart these days.
Isn’t it beautiful how God uses our pain to lift up and encourage others? Ultimately our struggles are an opportunity to overcome and glorify God!
In this video I share with you three things I have learned that have helped me in dealing with this struggle.
Believe me when I tell you that I am no stranger to rejection. My most recent situation is that my entire extended family has not spoken to me for over 2 months with no explanation. It could, and some days almost does, take me to the pit of despair and discouragement. But then God reaches into my broken heart and reminds me that I am loved by a Father who will never reject me. I am adored and pursued by the King of all creation.
My precious friends, you are loved by a God who is so trustworthy that you can’t fathom the depths of it. It’s so hard for me to imagine that kind of trustworthiness because not only have I been betrayed, but I have also failed and hurt people in my life and I am sure, will do it again. Being loved is not about what we deserve, because we don’t deserve any of it. Being loved, truly loved, is about God’s unshakable mercy. And as a Christian you have that kind of love….all day long.
If you are facing painful rejection, watch the video. Be encouraged. Don’t lose your faith because someone has let you down.
1 Peter 2:4 “As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious”
