Rejection can hurt deeply; however, one rejection is not a projection of future failures. We shouldn’t ignore the pain of rejection, but we also can’t allow rejection to be a permanent hindrance. We must choose to move past our source of rejection without allowing it to shout us down.
That rejection has already stolen enough from your present, don’t let it affect your future too.
No, that book proposal wasn’t a good fit for that publisher. But that doesn’t mean you can’t write. You don’t have to go with that publisher, or any publisher, to be an effective writer.
No, that friend didn’t stay in your life. But that doesn’t mean that you aren’t loved or capable of meaningful relationships.
No, you didn’t get that job opportunity. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be other interested companies.
God always has our best interests in mind. Failure, rejection, and unanswered prayers simply mean God has bigger, better plans in store.
So replace those negative thoughts that are hindering you. Replace them with praise for God, who loves you, provides, and will deliver you.
