The freedom of rejection

Rarely, do we greet the word, “No” with instant gratitude. Feelings of dissapointment and rejection are not always easy to face. Nevertheless, they undoubtedly lead us to a blank canvas that is waiting for us to co-create the next chapter in our life’s journey.
When facing dissapointment, never forget that God is working all things together for your good. Your “No” will ultimately pave the way for His best.
Go out and be all that God has created you to be today.

And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
Romans 8:28 NLT

  1. How true! I’ll never forget being virtually pushed out of a ministry I helped found, by people I had hired (long story, not worth telling), and the sleepless nights that were the result of what I could only call a spirit of rejection. As it turned out, about half of my first full-length book was written during that season, between 2:30 and 5:00 A.M. I am actually grateful for the rejection. God wanted to take me in a different direction, and I never would have given up that ministry on my own. But now, on the verge of getting my fifth book published, I’m glad I got pushed out.

    1. Thank you for sharing your testimony with us. I am always amazed at how Jesus can turn misery into victory. I’m so glad to hear that His purpose for you was greater than the pain that you experienced. Blessings.
