“Rejection is not an indication that you were not chosen, it’s a sign that the person who rejected you feels threatened by your presence.”
I have had many experiences in my life with rejection that I can write an entire book on the subject matter. But each time, I learn a lesson that is different from the one before. Something new about me is always revealed. I understand that the more I am navigated into my purpose and the closer that I get to that goal, the more rejection that I would encounter. Not necessarily from strangers, or even the enemy, but often times it’s from the persons that are closest to you.
Today however, suffering from rejection, it feels really different. I no longer need to feel ashamed or to feel inadequate as though something is wrong with me – that I am perhaps any less gifted than the person at whose hands I suffered the rejection. Rejection reveals your purpose. It helps you to see how God purposely chose you in spite of what you have suffered. It causes you to draw strength and courage from the well of mercy, grace and the favor of God in your life. As you step into this new realm, and the new chapter of your life, know that God is with you, He will never leave you nor forsake you.
Greater is he that is within you, than he that is in the world. Rejected by others, but the accepted and the beloved of God.
