Has your heart been broken? Your spirit crushed? Nothing cuts to the core of your soul like rejection. Even death, while devastating, doesn’t compare to the pain of knowing you’ve been abandoned. Rejection chips away your self-image, chisels down your confidence, and leaves you feeling hopeless and unworthy as the horrible message repeats again and again: “You are unwelcome. You are unwanted.”
No one can guarantee a life without rejection. In fact, the Bible promises that you will come face-to-face with it. But God also promises eternal and unconditional acceptance. In the midst of your pain, you can know there is One who will never reject you. He’s the One who’s already suffered the greatest rejection for you. Through Jesus, God has made a way for you to find complete acceptance in Him. He wants you to see yourself as He sees you − as the one He loves and will always welcome with open arms. In Him, you will find true healing and steadfast security.
