When You Feel Rejected

eleighton11

All of us at times experience rejection.

It cuts to our core, because we all need to feel

valued and cherished,

loved and accepted, 

capable and competent.

On the cross, the Lord demonstrated His love for us.  With that in mind, remember:

You are so valued by God that He laid down His life for you. You are cherished by Him so much that He is interested in every detail of your life to the point that He even knows the number of hairs on your head.

The Lord accepts you fully.  You belong to Him and are part of His family.  He loves you unconditionally and forgives you freely. 

Of course you are competent - you are His masterpiece!  The Lord has plans for you.  His Spirit lives in you, and will help you to be capable of anything that He has called you to do.  Don’t compare yourself to others, just set out to do what He created you to accomplish. 

So there you have it –  you my friend, are wonderfully made, and as a believer, you are complete in Christ.

Thank you so much for this post what a wonderful reminder. Many times I feel rejected by those closest to me but it is a comfort to know how God feels about me. With this I will carry on and spread Jesus's love and let him change my heart.

Mrs. Smith, I am blessed by reading your words. They couldn't be more true! Thank you.

It is always such a blessing to be reminded that we did nothing to earn Christ's sacrifice...that while we were yet sinners, He died for our sins. And such a motivation to live a life that pleases Him in every way...turning from our sins because we love Him so! Thanks for linking up to B&BB at Bible Love Notes. I pray you have a week that is blessed. I'm in Croatia right now, so I send you blessings from across the globe.
