WOW!

So yesterday was a tough day for me...some days are like that. We all have them, some are harder than others. Anyway...last night after Wyatt FINALLY fell asleep, Mark was studying so I had about 30 mins. to myself before 9:00pm I was having to prop my eyes open and I decided to just head to bed. I spent those 30 mins. wisely. I read blogs. ;) I have been trying to find a few new ones lately. Not that anyone I read bores me...lol...just to add to my list. Ha! While reading I came across this....

Rejection is God's Protection
    Right now you’re probably thinking, “Wait a minute, that doesn’t sound right. How can rejection be a form of protection?” But I’m not talking about rejecting by God. The Lord will never reject you – He will always love and accept you! The rejection I’m talking about is the rejection you sometimes face in your own life. When you feel like the world is rejecting you, whether at work, in your personal life or through the loss of something important to you, that may be God’s way of protecting you.

No matter where you are, you should accept it as the place God wants you to be and trust in God’s perfect timing. Thank God that He has seen in His wisdom to answer some of your prayers in unexpected ways and to answer others in the negative, because sometimes what we thought was the best for us wasn’t the best at all.

We should thank the Lord for all of the doors that He has opened and thank Him even more for the doors that He has closed in our lives. We should learn to trust that He knows what is best for us and is in control of our destinies. We may not understand everything that is happening and we can’t know what is in store for us in the future, but if we trust in Him, we can move forward knowing that He has our best interests at heart. After all, He knows the future and understands that there may be something far greater just around the next corner for us.

When we lose a job, go through a divorce, don’t get that promotion we wanted or face any other form or rejection or disappointment, we must remember to fight our discouragement and put our faith in God. The temporary rejection is God’s protection of our future. He is protecting us from some future hurt or sorrow by putting us on the proper path in the here and now. Yes, it can be a painful and harsh path to walk, but if we walk it in faith and allow God to comfort and keep us, we will get through the rejection and we will come out stronger on the other side, ready to accept the greater gifts He has waiting for us in the future!

Relax and learn to trust God. He is on your side. Ask God for His will and not your own. Being in God’s will is the safest place you can ever be. One of the most important aspect of faith is trusting that God will know what is right for you, even when you don’t understand His reasons. When it seems like your prayers aren’t being answered, it may be that God is protecting you from danger or sorrow that you can’t see, the timing isn’t right or that God has something far better planned for you that you haven’t even thought about. Give yourself over to Him completely and realize that any rejection you suffer from is only temporary here on earth, and that God’s plan is all-encompassing and will always prevail.

  1. I also needed that! It's hard to "wait" for the things we want and I can't even imagine how you feel with all you've gone through, but God is in control. Those 4 words are assuring to me, but also scary because like you, I'm a planner!

  2. I posted about this today, too!!! I think everyone needs it to be reminded that that "bad" things aren't always so bad - God just has different plans for us :)

    I hope you have a great weekend!

  3. Thanks for sharing! It was perfect timing for me, too! You just never know who "needs" what you are writing. I am also pregnant (18 weeks) after giving birth to twins (2 years ago). Somehow....I also felt like this pregnancy would be so different. I don't know how I thought it would be different, but I thought it would. I've followed your blog for a long time and I admire your never ending FAITH in God. You are an inspiration to so many and I just wanted to remind you of that!
