REJECTION

Ephesians 1:3 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.”
(KJV)

************

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!
