REJECTION

This is for the many who have been rejected in their lives, whether personally or professionally. Rejection hurts. It causes wounds. It makes victims feel worthless and leads many to depression…

REJECTION…
of any kind.
Can negatively…
impact your mind.
When you’ve tried…
and given your best.
Then get rejected..
it’s like failing a test.
When you’ve loved…
and given your heart.
Then get rejected…
it’s like getting torn apart.
When you’ve worked a job…
your entire life.
Then get fired…
it’s like loosing your wife.
For REJECTION is like…
getting stabbed in the heart.
Causing negative feelings…
that don’t easily depart.
When you’ve truly given…
all that you could.
Then get rejected…
it’s not easily understood.
But God sees it all…
and knows who’s right.
So just keep going…
and walk to the Light.
For He knows the truth…
and who’s heart is pure.
So just trust Him…
for He will restore.

Dear Lord, I pray that the wounds of rejection will be healed. Expose the manipulations of those who deceitfully treat and abuse others with hidden intentions of rejection. Bring total restoration to all of those affected by it… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  1. Rejection is something I am attempting to redefine into a gift. With all the pain in the world how can we manage it? If we can look at the smaller rejections and celebrate them as messages are lives were going in the wrong direction we can look at them as blessings that redirect us to a better path. This is a powerful post that probably sums it up more eloquently, walk away from what rejected you and into the Light. Thank you for your inspirational and encouraging posts.

  2. Beautiful Poem Secret Angel, “getting stabbed in the heart” Could a poem by itself for whatsoever has stabbed you, your heart diminished, hiding bleeding..with a sense of rage that lock you out to a no more, to a death that haven’t yet occurred, but is the only thing that keep you alive … Wil.

  3. Many times how I have felt through my personal walk right now…I had tried my best…and it wasn’t enough. ❤ thank you for your posts of meeting people where they are and offering hope and prayer. Lovely!

    • Thank you so much for all of your support. I totally understand what you are saying. Rejection causes wounds and it is hard to overcome… But we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. This is a journey of healing and just remember The Light at the end of the tunnel. God bless you, my sister!

  4. “Rejection hurts. It causes wounds. It makes victims feel worthless and leads many to depression…” Reading this felt like the writer was in my heart. Writing about my experience of rejections has helped a lot. I believe my upcoming memoir, RETURN TO SENDER, about rejection and emotional abuse, can help others to heal as well. Thank you for this post.

    • Thanks LaTanya… I will have to check out your book. Mine was just released this year, The Walked Wounded. So many of us are The Walking Wounded… But God heals and restores!

      • Yes he does! Many times, its hard to find people to talk to who understand. It is such a blessing to read your posts… Your blog is helping to empower us. I can’t wait to read your book. May God continue to bless you and keep you, always.

      • Thank you so much for your encouraging words. I look forward to hearing how you like the book. We serve an awesome God!! Many blessings to you, my sister!

      • Thank you so much for your encouraging words to Gretiana and me on the 17th. I am in agreement with you in your prayers that God raises us up to be voices in his army for those wounded by rejection. May God continue to bless you.

    • Hi Sam. Sorry that I did not get back to you sooner. Very busy the last few days… That is OK. God knows how you feel and He will reveal Himself to you when His timing is right, not before. I will continue to pray for you, my friend!

  5. I know exactly how rejection feels. When my mother got pregnant she was rejected by her father. The day I was born my father rejected me because he wanted a boy child. I grew up with people who did not love me but were somehow forced to put up with me. I equally felt rejected again. I am still learning to accept love and kindness because of the numerous rejection experiences I have had.

    • I am so sorry to hear that you have gone through all of this rejection. Rejection is so damaging to our hearts and souls. But we thank God for His healing and restoration that is available to us. I will be praying for you, my sister!!

    • Gretiana, my heart goes out to you. I experienced rejection too, from my mom. My mom didn’t want me but put on a big front so no one would know. With no father in the house, I grew up feeling despised and unloved. Up until now, I had spent my entire life trying to understand why I was treated the way I was treated. Although my biggest problem is letting people into my space, trusting people… I can relate to having to learn how to accept love and kindness. Now when I look back at my life, I thank God because in spite of what I experienced, I can see how God protected me from so much more. I pray that you are the change agent in your family–that the spirit of rejection is no longer free to rule and reign in you and your family’s life, that you love your children and their children that much harder, and that you are empowered to turn your pain into purpose. God bless you.

      • Amen!! And may God raise you both up to be voices in His Army to reach those wounded by rejection. It is those who have walked this path of rejection and overcome it that will help others to overcome the darkness of their past and help them to see the Light into their future. May God pour out His blessings on both of you!!

  6. This is so true! It just happens to tie in well with what Lilka has written today…”Persist.” No matter how bad it hurts, we can draw the strength to get back up and persist in seeking the answers for good.

    I like that simple old saying…”if you fall 7 times, get up 8!”

    Steve 🙂

  7. Amen, we have a Saviour who not only understands rejection but He lived it personally. So we can confidently cry out to Him and He can surely acquiant with us and most of all heal our broken heart. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  8. One thing that really made my jaw drop while the Lord was ministering to me in my victimized state from rejection, was when he explained to me that all the rejection I was facing was so I would be set apart to be alone with Him. God is a jealous God and sometimes He will pull you away from people and even jobs so that you will again come back to your first love and make him your priority. Our Father longs for deep relationship, quality time with Him is a desire of His.
    -Follow my blog for this topic is something I am very passionate about and I will touch it often.

    Blessings,

    • Amen, all of these words you have written are so true… and touch my heart as I have walked that journey from brokenness also. He does set us apart, especially those broken. He wants an intimate relationship with each of us, not just a casual one and He is calling those previously broken and who have overcome to join His Army to help others, You are blessed, my young friend. I am following your blog for this is also a topic that I have passionate about. How can we not be passionate about something that God has revealed to us….
