REEVALUATE | READ | WRITE | REDIRECT | REGAIN
Personal thoughts: My eyes are tired. I have been looking at the issue for too long. It’s time for me to focus on the solution. It’s time for me to re-evaluate.
Where am I and why am I here? What is this supposed to teach me?
Am I fighting for something I actually want or is there a deeper rooted issue?
These are all questions you should ask yourself when overcoming rejection.
Reading – reading a new book or finishing a book gives you a new perspective on something. Changing your perspective is what allows you to process negative events in a positive way. It’s exercise for your mind, emotions and insight.
Write – When experiencing rejection, it is easy to fall into isolation. It’s easy to feel as if no one cares and no one understand your current situation. This is not the case.
We are always in a “cloud of witnesses”. God sees you and He hears you. Write about how you feel, talk about how you feel. Don’t keep it inside.
Document these tests. They will serve as personal testimonies at a later date. All things will always work for your good.
Re-direct – Redirect your focus to the things that are really important. God’s divine protection is important. Focus on how His will for your life cannot be thwarted by man.
Regain – Regain your confidence. Rejection can cause you to feel badly about yourself, your gifts, and your position in life. Do not give up your peace, your joy, or your purpose as a result of facing rejection. Remember who you are! Jesus endured rejection while still operating in his divine purpose.
He embraced the rejection He faced because He knew it was a necessary part of the process. Trying to remove yourself from any part of the process, no matter how painful, will result in an unfinished work.
We cannot skip steps. He who has begun a good work in you is faithful to perform it.
He will see it through to the end and He will be there with you every step of the way.
Don’t give up dear hearts. Your future is waiting on you.
