You Are Accepted in the Beloved
As we celebrate this season commemorating the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, I was thinking of the rejection that Jesus faced by those He came to save. According to Isaiah 53:3, cheap canada goose uk He was uk canada goose despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we canada goose outlet reviews hid as it were our faces from him; canada goose outlet online uk he was despised, and we esteemed him canada goose outlet not.
To me rejection canada goose uk shop tastes and smells like milk that canada goose outlet toronto factory has turned sour and gotten uk canada goose outlet all chunky and thick. It looks like the bottom of a canada goose outlet shop shoe that has stepped in dog poop, all dark and slimy. Rejection comes in like the thunder storm that you knew was coming eventually but you were hoping it would pass by. However, just like the thunder storm that is loud and strikingly dangerous while happening but in the morning it is gone; if you can make it through the night of rejection, it will pass. The next day the milk will be fresh and sweet, flowing like a river, with shoes that are clean canada goose outlet uk and sparkling as the sun shines bright.
Anybody that has ever been rejected can understand the mental and emotional anguish that rejection produces. Rejection is at the root of many serious mental disorders because belonging and acceptance are inherent human needs. Oftentimes when those needs are not met there is a void that develops and is replaced with canada goose outlet in usa rejection or the fear of rejection ruling and reigning and thus hindering progress.
Rejection if permitted can immobilize and completely stop you in your tracks. Jesus came to his own, and his own received him not, (John 1:11). Ouch! That had to hurt badly! He could have decided at that point to turn around and abort His mission but He canada goose store did not.
How often do you get to a place where you are not accepted and decide to give up? Many of us allow the pain of rejection to determine our actions but thank God Jesus did not. He understood that the pain and suffering were just a part of the whole. It https://www.bamschaatsteam.nl did not define nor determine His outcome.
As a matter of fact, I believe that it helped Him to always turn to the Father, who accepted him, loved him, and affirmed Him. That is what we must do when faced with rejection, turn to Jesus who inherently canada goose outlet store understands what it feels like to be rejected and can help us to overcome. When you understand that no matter who rejects you, that you are accepted in the beloved, it takes away the sting.
