Accepted Not Rejected

Rejection for any reason hurts.

Tech devices hadnít made the scene, so we played Hide n Seek, cops and robbers, cowboys and Indians, dodge ball, football and baseball (in our yards), and put sheets over chairs for tents. Innocent activities keeping us active.

Even innocent games carry seeds of rejection. I wasnít the fastest runner, best hitter or most popular student. I was overlooked when choosing captains for dodge ball. And when teams were picked, I was the last selected. But I didnít grow up with an inferior complex; I just wished for more talents and popularity.

Nobody enjoys rejection. At some point I simply concluded Godís acceptance was enough. Otherís was a bonus. God rejects no one who comes in faith and delights in all who do: The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing. (Zephaniah 3:17)

I may never sit in a CEOís chair, speak to thousands of eager listeners, make a million dollars, have perfect children, or own luxurious cars and a mansion, but I have everything when God receives me. His acceptance is based on forgiveness which results in purity. And he gladly forgives when asked. We become his children and friends. He enjoys our company and gets excited about the relationship.

Others may reject us over appearance, talents, race or social standing, but God loves his affiliation with us. Let God soothe any feelings of rejection with his acceptance.

Prayer: Merciful Lord, thank You for accepting us as we are. Period. www.lovelinesfromgod.com
