We feel as if no one truly understands us. We are the ‘black sheep’ if you will…………. Different, a social outcast, unappreciated, rejected, misunderstood, ‘weird’…………..
But recently God dropped another truth bomb on me that shook me to the very core.
You were always loved.
YOU JUST DIDN’T WANT TO SEE IT.
You didn’t WANT to receive the love of others because you hated yourself. Because you felt as if you didn’t deserve love. Because you weren’t used to BEING LOVED.
And as much as I wanted to fight those words, the truth of it all began to roll around in my mind.
You didn’t want to see it.
Loneliness is a trick of the enemy!!! (And boy do I have some bones to pick with the devil for this one!!)
Loneliness causes us to believe that others have rejected us. It makes us feel as if the better thing to do is just pull away. It lies to us and makes us think that we know what everyone else is thinking. It causes us to make bad decisions in life and then we blame those mistakes on all the people that rejected us!!!
But it’s not their fault.
We just couldn’t see the true enemy……….THE DEVIL AND HIS LIES.
All this time I have been feeling unloved and pushing people away………….for no good reason!!!!!
I AM LOVED.
By my family,
By my Leaders at Church,
By my friends!
By the members of my Church,
Even by my co-workers………
They all LOVE ME!!!! They ALL care about me in some kind of way. But I was the one pushing them away. There was never a need for all those PITY PARTIES!!! It was ALL A LIE from the enemy. Making me feel alone and lost and lonely. It was all a lie!!!!!! I didn’t have to go through all of this. If I had just opened up to somebody and let my heart out about EVERYTHING.
I PROLONGED THIS PAIN. I PROLONGED THIS STORM. I LISTENED TO THE LIES!!!
BUT GOD IS ENDING IT.
And if you are like me and have struggled with Loneliness then I encourage you to:
Let go of REJECTION.
It is not of God. It never came from Him. He loves you!!! ALWAYS.
He placed people who love you around you. ALWAYS. Stop pushing people away!
THIS ENDS TODAY.
Goodbye…..Rejection. I don’t need you.
I never needed you.
Ephesians 3:14-21 Prayer for Spiritual Strength
14 On account of this, I bend my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that he may grant you according to the riches of his glory to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inner person, 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith (you having been firmly rooted and established in love), 18 in order that you may be strong enough to grasp together with all the saints what is the breadth, and length, and height, and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, in order that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.
20 Now to the one who is able to do beyond all measure more than all that we ask or think, according to the power that is at work in us, 21 to him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.
