“and we know that all things work together for good, to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.”
We’ve all heard the term “Rejection is Gods protection” but at the time of heartbreak wether it’s because of a friendship or a relationship or any other life circumstance, we really don’t see the good in anything or how Gods hand could even be on the situation. I know this feeling all too well.
I’ve gone through everything that most young women have faced. I’ve had my heart broken. I’ve been rejected. I’ve been betrayed. I’ve been lied to and I’ve had my vulnerable heart, carelessly thrown and trampled on.
I’m sure that many of you who are reading this can relate. Heartbreak is apart of life. but in no way is this is going to be my main focus.
I’m writing this today to tell you that there is indeed something beautiful that could come out of a shattered heart because I am a witness and a product of this miracle.
My Heavenly Father carefully picked me up, wiped off the dirt, cherished me and made me whole again, more times than I can count. He’s been faithful.
I remember a time where I was going through a form of rejection that completely took me off guard. I couldn’t express into words what I was feeling, yet I had this peace knowing that God knew everything that I couldn’t formulate. I simply told Him that night, ”I have no idea what to say or how to pray right now, I just need you”. and with that sweet still small voice of His, He simply repeated “I do all things well. I am in control. Trust me.” I know that is simple but it’s been a profound promise that has anchored my life.
Now with every battle or disappointment that comes my way, those words resonate in me. “I do all things well. I am in control.”
God never makes a mistake. He never takes something away without a reason. I look back at all the times I was hurt, all the times I was rejected, even the time that I desperately wanted someone to be “The One” who I loved very much and I see the protection of the Lord all over it. He saved me from things and people that would have aborted my destiny and drained every ounce of anointing. I didn’t see the whole picture at the time, but now I see that He had something greater for me. It took my heart to break a time or two to help me realize this. but now that I do, there’s no going back. I never again want to walk outside of Gods will. I want to remain hidden in the shadow of His wing, until He gives me the OK to pursue something.
Many times- we can ignore the Lords warning and proceed into something that deep down, we know very well that we weren’t supposed to walk into. That’s where the heartbreak and disappointment comes. But it is incredible to know that we are so loved by God. He is so merciful, that He still continues to come down and save the day, even in our failures. He still makes something beautiful out of our ashes and gives us something to hold on to. In Isaiah 61 verse 3 it says that He will:
“appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He might be GLORIFIED.”
The best thing I can encourage you in today, it to trust Jesus with your life so that He may be glorified. Give Him the heartache that you’re facing right now, whatever it may be and let the healing begin.
“I will heal him and make his lips blossom anew with THANKFUL PRAISE.” Isaiah 57:19
Someday, you will understand and have that thankful praise, over why that relationship didn’t work. You’ll understand why those friends who you thought were going to be there forever, left. You will understand why opportunities fell through. You’ll understand every loss, every discouragement, every problem that happened within your family. Those ashes were being used to create something beautiful and strong in YOU. God is getting ready to launch you into your destiny. Let Him protect you. Let Him pave your path. Your best days are yet to come, I promise. There is hope for you.
Jesus is faithful. He does all things well. He is in control. He does miracles so great. Don’t forget that. You are going to have a testimony
