Dealing with Rejection

There are many types of rejection that we all will face at different times in our life. As a child, you may have felt rejected by your Dad or your Mother. Maybe you even felt rejected by a sibling. Children often have to deal with rejection at school. That is one of the reasons computer internet games are so appealing to children. They do not get rejected!

Then, as you grow older you may feel the rejection of a boyfriend or girlfriend. Teens are willing to do almost anything to avoid the feeling of rejection. Even to the point of making stupid decisions that may affect the rest of their lives.

CMany times when people feel rejected they can become depressed. Once depressed life becomes very difficult. Fear can set in. The fear of trying anything because you cannot stand the thoughts of rejection can often drive people to alcohol or drugs.

Even as adults you face several types of rejection. You may feel the rejection of someone you care about very much. You could feel rejection at work. It hurts.

You need to remember that God will not reject you! He loves you very much. John 3:16 says, ”For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” The “whosoever” is you. Only satan wants you to feel rejected and alone. “God is love…(1 John 4:16), and again in 1 John 4:18, tells us that “there is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear.”

Please feel free to call me if you are struggling with rejection. You can have victory over that rejection.

God Bless, and always remember that in Jesus Christ every day is a “New Beginning!”
