I have struggled with rejection my whole life. I try not to let it bother me, but I have to admit it gets to me. This morning as I was getting ready for work, I was dwelling on rejection from past friends and peers. Why would God allow for me to go through such painful experiences? Then a thought popped into my head, and I am pretty sure God had something to do with it. Rejection is part of God’s plan and it has a purpose.
What if there is a reason why I and many other believers have gone through periods of rejection? And what if that reason is because God has a perfect plan–He is protecting us from relationships and friendships that aren’t right for us.
As much as it is hard to be rejected, knowing that God has a perfect plan for my life is comforting. He knows what is good for my life and who is good in my life. No matter what, I know Jesus loved me and you so much that He was willing to die for us. He thinks we are beautiful, special, valuable, and lovable. No amount of rejection can keep us from the love of Christ. Now when I look back on those times when I was rejected, I realize that God had a plan even in that difficult time. We serve a wonderful God!
If you are feeling discouraged and rejected today, know Jesus loves you more than you could ever know. He thinks you are beautiful, special, valuable, and lovable.
