I was thinking about rejection.
What gives rejection its sting?
Is it shame? What I BELIEVE about myself being unfit and unworthy. Not enough. Yucky and ugly and dirty.
Isn’t that what makes shame so painful?
And then the fear. I will never be enough. This is my best! What more can I do?
Let’s talk a little sense. 💛
JESUS was the ultimate poster child for shame. He CAME to be shamed for us all. He offered all that he had of the goodness in his soul, and was judged to be lacking. We know what that is like.
I am so grateful that God gets it. I love Him. 🌻
