It’s Valentines Day today. Many a soul will be a little worrisome on what they should get that special someone in their life. However, there will be many of those lonely hearts who will long to have a Valentine from a certain someone, yet never receive it.
No matter whom we are, rejection hurts. Some of us have lived our entire lives with feelings of rejection and not even realized it. I’ll let you in on a little heart secret. I am one of “those” someone’s. Recently I was asking God what makes me react so differently to situations around me. The answer was astonishing.
He took me back to when I was fifteen years old. He reminded me when my brother was killed, and then three days later my mom shot my dad, then herself. He told me, “It was then that you felt rejected, not good enough for your mother to want to stay alive for. “
I suppose in that instant moment of reality I shed a few tears. I really thought I had dealt with every issue in my past and now God was more or less telling me to deal with this. I confessed my broken heart to Him just a few days ago.
It has been thirty-two years since this incident happened and yet God is still working on the inner me. It has definitely changed my outlook on life. I suppose I am not as critical as I used to be. Best of all, I have made peace with the situation completely. Who could ask for a better gift on Valentines Day – huh? Peace of heart knowing that this world may reject me, but my Father in heaven has never rejected me. Let me say, Happy Valentine’s Day dear ones. May you feel Gods loving arms around you and may you always know the truth found in John 3:16 “For God So Loved!”
