I Thank My God For Rejection

WAIT WHAT, BIANCA!?!

I know what you are thinking why would I enjoy rejection. Well I am glad you asked, Bliss Fam.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.- 2 Corinthians 12:9

Don’t get me wrong. Rejections hurts. But that is what grace is for. Though I do not see grace physically, I do feel it through the Holy Spirit working from the inside out.

Whether it is people, opportunities, or other things, grace covers those weaknesses and shortcomings. And grace creates strength, protection, and resilience in the situation.

Perfect example, I had someone in my life lie and hide from me for months. In other words, I was ghosted. There was no explanation, just silence for several months. Then out of the blue, I get a text saying that he wants to talk. Well, I gave him the benefit of the doubt. Of course, my sister was my emotional support when he called. He dropped major bombshells that shocked me but not to my core. (On the other hand, my sister was pissed and annoyed for me). When it was my turn to talk, I was candid and honest, handling the situation with grace and poise. I called him a coward and expressed how his lies hurt me but did not damage me. No really, I had moved on without him. Yes, I was rejected but it did not hurt because God’s grace covered the temporary rejection I experienced from someone I cared about.

Everyone has experienced that hurt of rejection in one way or another. But it is how you react that makes the difference with grace.

Now with that situation with Bianca ten years ago, it would have been different in the pitiful way. You see, it took me a long time to figure out how to handle rejection. I was quite the people pleaser who took criticism and rejection TO THE CORE. My head would spin and go crazy over someone’s else rejection of me because I wanted to be loved by everyone…like Oprah popularity love. God knew that desire but He really broke me and humbled me by revealing what and how the rejection would work out in my favor for His purpose.

Rejection hurts but it also humbles you. It humbles and grows you in ways you never knew. You may not see it right then and there but God will reveal it. There is a purpose for rejection.

 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.-Romans 8:18

Granted, I am still growing and learning grace in the mist of rejection. But it is manageable through Christ because His power covers it all.

For that, I thank my God for rejection.

Blissfully,

Bianca

    I totally get it!!! for me however, it’s not rejection but I thank God for brokenness. Right now I am in a season of being broken by God and being broken before God….and it’s the best season of my life because I am discovering so much about God!!! He’s remolding me and reshaping me in his image. I trust him even in the pain…its the same with rejection he uses it to draw us closer. Thank you for this word!!
