Oh How He loves me …& Tune In Thursday #11

Tweet “Ever so softly she whispered … “They love me, they love me not.  They love me …. They love me not….” “ Tuesday it was my turn to write for an 8 week collaborative series on Perseverance with 3 of my friends. As I wrote the piece on rejection, I felt more needed to be said.  I mean, when does a writer not have more to say? Hahaha … I felt prompted  to share tools that have helped me overcome rejection in my life, so that maybe others could overcome it too. If you missed my post on The Sting of Rejection you can read it HERE:     Overcoming the Sting of Rejection – Part 2   Rejection is a lie and trap from the enemy to keep us all from walking fully in our kingdom destiny.   #Rejection is no respecter of persons, it affects us all, just in different ways and to different extremes.Powered By the Tweet This PluginTweet This It wasn’t until my mid 20’s when I realized that I was looking through lenses colored with a spirit of rejection.  It was then I began dealing with rejection and its affects in my own life. In Tuesday’s post, I compared rejection to dandelion weeds.  I said:    “The roots and seeds of encounters with rejection are very much like dandelions.  Dandelions have roots that twist and turn going very deep into the ground.  When you pluck them, and try to root them out, it seems over time they spring back up.”   #Rejection places seeds that grow roots that entangle areas of our life and heart.Powered By the...

Finally, when she had as many she could find without venturing too far, she walked to the very edge of the grass toward the rock retaining wall that overlooked the property.   Making her way past the grass and through the bushes she plopped her little bottom...
