Overcoming Rejection

Overcoming Rejection

Rejection carries a heavy load

It’s placed a blockade upon life’s road

Without a doubt before too long

You buckle under another’s wrong

It hurts I know,

The wounds are deep

Your happiness goes,

You yearn for sleep

You try so hard to find the key

But through the tears it’s so hard to see

You cry out, ‘God what do I do?’

You search and seek the whole day though,

He answers clear, ‘You must forgive,

To set you free, so you can live’

‘But Lord,’ you say,

‘That seems so wrong,

I’m angry and hurt;

I’m not that strong,’

He answers gently,

‘My Son died for you,

Do you not know?

He died for them too?

The Cross and the Blood is all said and done,

So look to Me and honour My Son.

Remember His last words as death drew near,

They are the words I urge you to fear.’

“Forgive them Father,

They do not know,”

‘Through those very words

I let them go,

I’ll give you the strength

To see you through,

Full restoration

I promise to you.

So quietly now from where you are,

Release forgiveness on those near and far,

Press into Me for the love you need,

And true wholeness will sprout from the forgiveness seed.’

©J.M.Smith 1987

      Dear DeBorrah, thank you for enjoying this poem. I absolutely agree that 'That the Lord will NEVER leave me nor forsake me' I look forward to giving out more of His goodness and love as I explore hubpages. I am new at this so I would truly appeciate your encouragement, as and when you have time. I have stopped by your hub and have enjoyed your writing very much. Thank you Lord for giving us these great gifts and vehicle to see them be a blessing to Your Kingdom. Have a great God kissed day and hear from you again soon.
