I love this message. I have to keep reminding myself of this message of love. I find that I often react out of fear of rejection and this can cause rejection or even perceived rejection. This plays havoc with my emotions. I think I even learned it from my parents because my father was a foster child and that rejected behaviour was passed down to me! I pray that Jesus helps me break this bondage that is in my subconscious. Thank you for the “Do over” message instead of failure. I feel relieved and encouraged.
Rejection is the root of most of my fear and insecurity. I care too much of what people think of me. This is what I believe kept me in denial about an alcohol addiction I was enslaved to for many years. Thank you Grant for helping me realize, once again, I am not alone, everyone has felt rejection at one time or another. And thank you for reminding me that even if everybody rejected me, God doesn’t. I praise Him for the relationship I have with Him and His acceptance of me through His Son Jesus Christ. I am presently attending a program called Celebrate Recovery which encourages honesty. I was an alcoholic when I got into recovery but alcohol is no longer my problem. My sin struggles and failures today are more with pride, lust, fear and anger. Though I still don’t like being this vulnerable and admitting these sins, it is true and through the help of my Higher Power Jesus Christ I am gaining victory. God bless your ministry. I try and listen to your weekly video and I am encouraged by it.
Lisa you’re right, we often learn our dysfunctions from our parents. Our expectation of rejection can induce it. I explain all that on the Rejection DVD.
David, I’m glad you’re in Celebrate Recovery. It’s a great program. Keep working through your baggage. You’ll never be the same again!
Rejection still feels somewhat like abandonment to me. I grew up in an abusive home where my parents were both present physically but that was all. I had one very traumatic experience when I was about 4 years old. I was thrown out of the car into the ditch and told to walk home (11/2 miles) because I was a bad girl for fighting with my brother and was not worthy to go to church because only good little girls get to go to church. We lived in the country and I was so scared and ashamed that I crawled most of the way in the ditch on my hands and knees. That was a pivotal experience for me and really set the stage for the sexual abuse that followed from my father. I am an adult now and have worked through most of that, but a recent rejection from a woman I considered to be my best friend has once again brought those old feelings of abandonment back. The thing that has saved me and my sanity has been God’s unconditional love and acceptance of me. I have drawn on that once again in the face of this recent rejection. So I know that I know that I know that God is the only one who will never abandon or reject me and that gives me the strength and courage to go on. Thanks for the reminder in your video.
Thanks Barb for sharing that very painful memory. I’m glad that God is healing you.
I know Jesus will always be with me, He told me himself that, He would make it all up to me. Believe me He is, He brought me through lung cancer, He even sent two angels into the or I saw them before I was prepared for surgery, I had a lung removed. I have also had a hip and knee totally replaced. Jesus is rebuilding me for new ventures, It is written,”I will never forget you, you are mine” Praise The Lord.
I am not sure how He did it, but over time Abba father was able to help me to trust Him with my not OK parts and let me know that He knew me and accepted me for who I was , so I could look at myself through His eyes and not just my own. I became more and more OK with the reality that “apart from Him I can do nothing” and “that I needed my confidence to be in Him and not myself,” that it was His strength and His presence that freed me, not something I was doing.
I embraced that He was embracing me and came to know Him as my hiding place. Slowly I found that being clothed in Christ could be seen quite literally as covering my inadequacies and nakedness of heart and soul. I could see that when I partnered and depended on Him , the outcomes were much different. In this He covered me and my faults and not OK feelings. He is the strong tower I run to, my refuge and strength, the refresher of my soul.
