For many years, I (and my family) have been rejected by several people that SHOULD love us.
We find out after the fact that we’ve been excluded from activities when we could have easily been invited.
Or we’re told about activities and we’re not invited.
Shane and I have both received phone calls or emails (bombs) where we’ve been raked us over the coals,
and, we’ve basically been disowned by at least one person without explanation.
We have NO idea why.
Others that should love us manipulate and twist.
Never accepting any responsibility
Always blaming us
for the shambles the relationships are in.
However I believe that:
I am NOT rejected by God
I am LOVED with an everlasting love
My God in his steadfast love will meet me;
God keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, ( I LOVE YOU LORD!)
I will count it all JOY when I face trials
Jesus was rejected of men, but loved and accepted by God!
I am in good company!
I refuse to let the rejection define today…
for tomorrow I may fail…
And when I do, He will pick me back up and remind me that no matter what man rejects me,
HE will NEVER leave or forsake me!
*** We have tried multiple times and multiples ways to restore these relationships over many years. We have sought counsel with wise men, and church leadership. We have gone multiple times to the people involved, we’ve sought Biblical counseling. (who mainly agreed with us, but still the other party did not change). Unfortunately, none of things things have brought success. We have done all we can to fulfill the Scripture,” if possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.”
But sometimes it still HURTS!
