Often, out of our greatest rejection comes our greatest direction

Often, out of our greatest rejection comes our greatest direction
For me this is so true, when faced with rejection or what I perceive as such
I do withdraw, we all do because no one wants to feel less then
Out done, not wanted, not needed, perhaps not making the bill
The strength to fight the urge to disappear is hard to muster
When your second nature response is to flee, duck, cover and run
Standing firm and allowing this storm to pass over is the only way
To completely be free of this behavior, to make that change stick
Because I don’t know about you but when my rejection button is pushed
That is when I am most vulnerable, when I am most tender to feel like 
I am not chosen, or not the favorite one
I could just choose to go away, but instead I stand and notice
What a lovely day it is, cold and brisk
I think I saw a deer in my back field, I know the stars were so bright at
6:20 a.m. this morning and I think it’s okay if I am not exciting,
the one that catches someone’s eye, and holds their attention
It’s okay that I am sitting at a desk while everyone else is on vacation
It’s just okay, right this very moment, and that is all I need to know
That is all I know, and with that I know, I am Okay
I’m not everyone’s cup of tea, 
Not their choice
I am okay with that
this moment
I am

  1. You are my cup of tea MM. But I know that feeling also. I suppose at some point we all have feelings of rejection. As long as we like who we are, that’s okay.


  2. This popped into my head while reading: He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. (Isaiah 53:3) I don’t know why. But Jesus knows best about rejection. You are in good company. I love you. ❤
