Day 9: Rejected No More


Waiting

for a phone call

Waiting

for a text

Waiting

for a knock on the door

Just waiting

for someone

to know that you are here.

Have you ever been there?

You are known by others

You know others

yet

you feel alone.

"Does anybody care"

"Does anybody know I exist"

are the questions you ask

because

you feel

Rejected.

But then you remember

Who Am I?

Loved

by Him

who takes

rejection

and

crushes it like a bug

because you are

His Creation~

Created on purpose & for a purpose

or you wouldn't be here in the first place.

Because

if God knows

everything about you

from when you sit and stand

down to every hair on your head (Psalm 139)

how can you or I be rejected?

Feeling Rejected

and

Being Rejected

are not the same things.

Feelings are feelings and are real in the moment

due to what we see &

the effects from the circumstances around us,

as we are feeling beings.

But

Being

is who we are

and that

is who God says we are.

When our feelings meet

His Love

filled with

Grace & Mercy

Joy & Hope

we become

Accepted & Love

even in loneliness where rejection is birthed

What, then, shall we say in response to these things?

His own Son, but gave Him up for us all—how will He not also, along with Him,

graciously give us all things?

Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen?

It is God who justifies.

Who then is the one who condemns?

No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?

Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?

As it is written:

For your sake we face death all day long;

we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

For I am convinced that

neither death nor life,

neither angels nor demons,

neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,

neither height nor depth,

nor anything else in all creation,

will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:31-38

Therefore...

Who Am I?

Who are You?

Loved By Him

Who loved us first.

From Rags to Riches

Put Off Rejection

Put On Acceptance

because

He has

Put Love on you.
