Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That

by Elizabeth

Rejection.

It’s the main story I tell myself.

“That person doesn’t like me.”

“That person is talking bad about me to others.”

“That person is rejecting me.”

But today I choose to reject rejection.

I choose to believe that God loves me and that I have a purpose and calling in life.

I choose to believe that the people closest to me, the most important people, love and accept me.

I choose not to give in to discouragement and the voices in my head that tell me I’m not wanted.

Or at least, today I’m choosing to choose those things.

Because I don’t have time for that.

I’ve got messages to share and people to encourage.

I’ve got calling and purpose, and I refuse to be waylaid by the voices in my head.

Who’s with me?

  1. Thank you! This week I was trying to explain to the hubs that it wasn’t exactly depression, but that there are voices that tell me I’m worthless. This will help me explain it to him and help us both know I’m not crazy!

  2. I’m with you. 🙂 I have a problem with this, because I want everyone to like me, and I can be oversensitive to things. It’s too easy to focus on that one negative comment instead of 15-20 positives ones. I remind myself that I am a dearly loved daughter of the King. I also like this quote by Dr. Seuss, “Those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.” https://www.pinterest.com/pin/506373551826899272/

    • “I want everyone to like me, and I can be oversensitive to things.” Did you just get inside my head Anna??

      So YESSS, let’s proclaim together that we are dearly loved daughters of the King! When I forget, you can remind me, and when you forget, I can remind you. 🙂 Hugs to you today!!

  3. Hold your head high, keep your chin UP, KEEP on KEEPING ON !!. God is still on the throne and HE WILL remember his own.

  4. Oh my!! Have you been watching me?!! How I struggle w/like ability issues. I, too, want everyone to like me & feel (a lot of days) like no one does. (Thank u Satan!!). ❤️How u listed the kingdom business u needed to accomplish vs. focusing on rejection. I’m going to do that too, replace rejection w/all the ways I want to love & live 4 Him. Thank u thank u thank u for the way u write in transparency. It’s helping so many of us w/our walk!! Blessings my friend!! 🙏🏻😇🙏🏻

    • Thank you for your sweet, sweet encouragement (and all the science magazines — I can’t remember if I ever thanked you for the last batch of them!!).

      And YES, let’s do this thing together!!

  5. You (and Jonathan) do a great job of knowing your callings, giftings, and timings, and living in those. I think there’s a connection. Rejection– living out of rejection, or out of fear of rejection– would keep that from happening. Blessings!
