Let’s face it, for most of us, whether we get rejected in love, friendship, work, or wherever, rejection feels awful.
Rejection tends to turn us inward in a negative way — causing us to feel unworthy, flawed, not good enough, unlovable, frustrated, confused, angry, sad, etc. — which can get us painfully bogged down in paralyzing self-criticism.
But if we are true believers, we need to understand that all experiences in life directly support our learning, growth, and upliftment in the kingdom of God — then rejection must also be a path for our learning, growth, and upliftment. Listen to this powerful word with Pastor Patrick E. Winfield of the Potters House Church of Fort Worth, Texas.
