Have you feared REJECTION,
Perhaps all of your life?
Have you compromised to ‘fit in’,
You can’t handle wrangling and strife?
Or…have you stood firm,
To all that you believe;
A person of conviction,
And, to those convictions…you cleave?
It’s for sure we’ll know REJECTION,
While…on earth we do dwell;
Whether for good or for bad,
Your convictions…never sell.
Is it better to be liked by mankind,
And, thought highly by them;
When it’s in direct opposition,
To He who is the great I AM?
Our choice to make…isn’t it,
In our lives each and every day;
Will we go the way of the world,
Or, shall we follow on…His way?
Do we fear mankind’s REJECTION,
We don’t want to ‘make waves’;
We’re trusting in things temporal,
To the temporal…we are slaves?
Or, do we have a higher vision,
One that’s on the Eternal;
Hearing and doing God’s will,
To our God…acceptable?
REJECTION…it’s in all our lives,
But, the choice is still ours to make;
Whether rejected by others,
Or rejected by our Maker.
Let’s stand along side the saints of old,
Let’s do a new thing…today;
We’re accepted IN the Beloved,
REJECTION has no hold on us…this way!
