Have you ever felt rejected?
Today we approach a subject we all wish we would never have to endure. Or do we?
Have you ever felt rejected? I know I have. It hurt. It wasn’t easy to move forward because of the pain it created in my life. I felt as though I had been thrown away and had no value.
And yet I had no choice but to find ways to overcome the struggle from being rejected. And so can you!
My friend, Tracey Mitchell, was on the Women of Faith Show with me recently. Her perspective of how to view this sensitive subject is so wise! She says, “Rejection is life’s golden opportunity!” And she continues, “Why would you want to drag someone into your future who’s not capable of handling your NOW?”
Rejection is life's golden opportunity. And so many times especially women, they come to me and you know, this person's rejected me this opportunity is rejected me, what do I do? And they look at rejection totally wrong.
And I asked them I said, why would you want to drag someone into your future? Who's not capable of handling your nails? Good. And that's big with me why in the world we try to drag opportunities or people if you're not qualified to hang with me today and you feel comfortable leaving me today, then baby You sure are qualified and for my future. And so once we have that mental switch, and we see that rejection is not about what we're losing, but what God is literally taking bolt cutters and cutting off of us so that we can be laid at the feet of our destiny. So good
Here is the bottom line. When you endure rejection from someone who is not meant to be in your future, then the pain of rejection becomes such an opportunity for your future!
When I look back at that very difficult time of my life, I am thankful for it. I would not be where I am today without it!
Allow me to reassure you, my Friend. Just because someone withholds love or rejects you does not mean everyone will reject you. God will ALWAYS listen to you and will NEVER withhold His love from you.
I'm wildly cheering you,
