I know what you’re thinking y’all, “daily rejection?! What an uplifting topic for a Tuesday (not)!” But stick with me friends, I promise we’re going to get somewhere good!
Last night I started “Uninvited” as part of my Thursday morning bible study, and to be honest I wast really sure if it was going to relate to me. The byline says “living loved when you feel less than, left out, and lonely.” Surely that doesn’t describe me daily! I’ve never thought about any portion of my life as lonely or feeling left out (and I do feel lucky to say that)!
But then something happened… I hopped on my Instagram and saw that I had lost ANOTHER 5 followers. And I felt it- rejection! “Why isn’t my content good enough?” “Do they not like me?” “What am I doing wrong?” And all of a sudden all the lessons in the book seemed 100% relevant to me! In this world of social media we face daily rejection and perpetual feelings of not feeling good enough- but that’s because we are putting our faith and valuing our worth by the wrong thing. We can only get real value and worth when we place our faith in the Lord- HIS truths are unchanging and in him we face no daily rejections. Isn’t that comforting?!
Hope y’all have the sweetest day!
