I love this pic, I can't help but use it again. You may remember in July I used it to tell about my mother, who loved wildflowers. Today I am taking another approach. It is amazing that in nature all color works well with others. If I tried to do the same, you might not like the outcome!

In the Body of Christ, we must work with others for a common cause, the truth of the gospel. Sometimes this cause can get covered up by discord within and among fellow believers. Rejection is one of the biggest lies of the enemy among all people. We are exposed to it at early ages, and not taught how to deal with it. This can lead to feeling of low self worth, and an inability to accomplish tasks well. When I came to the Lord, I didn't do my best at anything because I was so sure that I couldn't. I think back on that, and I can't believe that that was really me.

If we are aware of feelings of rejection in our lives, we need to know what to do with them. First of all, go to Jesus, and remember how loved you are by Him. What others say and do to us, doesn't define us. What God has to say about us is what shines! "How precious are your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with you. "  {Psalm 139: 17-18}  "I will praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are your works, And that my soul knows very well. {Psalm 139-14} 

I could go on and on with God's word as to what He thinks about His children. "No weapon forms against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgement You shall condemn.  {Isaiah 54:17} The thing that is most important is not to allow anyone to steal your joy or peace. If you would like to know more on this subject, why don"t you join our class called "Uninvited" a Bible Study by Lysa Terkeurst that will start on Sunday September 25, at Smithtown Gospel tabernacle. If you aren't close by, pick up the book on amazon, and read it for yourself. I'm always here to answer any questions and for prayer.
