Remaining Resolute In Spite Of Rejection

I know you are tired of the way things have been for you lately. I know it seems you continue to encounter rejection from many sides. Remember, I have not rejected you, but also know the rejection you experience is part of the process, part of the refinement you will experience. While it is unpleasant, find comfort in the fact that it is producing a good result in your life. It will bear good fruit because it will refine the core issues of your heart, streamlining your lifestyle, and strengthening your thinking and behavior. (1)

Also remember the pain you feel from the rejection you experience is temporary. The discomfort is very real, but it does not remain and does not continue. However, the results you experience from this process will continue and will remain with you. You will walk through the fire of rejection being fully refined, and this refinement will remain with you always. It will prove so valuable to you over the course of many years and you will not regret the process in the long term. (2)

So fix your eyes on a timeline longer than today. Set your expectations past what is seen, for what is seen is temporary. Fix your eyes on to what lies in store for you, and what is continuing to be revealed. In this, not only will you receive comfort, but you will also receive perspective and clarity. You will better understand where you are presently, but you will also better understand, where you are heading. And with this you will behave differently as your understanding and interpretation of today shifts and changes to a more eternal perspective, rather than only focusing on and acknowledging the here and now. (3)

The lens I have given you is good and right. So adopt my vision, and adopt what I am saying to you in this moment. Endure the difficulties, and know they are working for a greater glory yet to be fully revealed. Do not feel alone, isolated, nor forgotten, for I am with you always, even to the end of this world. I will never leave you, never forsake you, but continue to remain with you every step of the way. (4)

Walk in this assurance, knowing you are doing the right thing, moving in the right direction, in spite of the pain and rejection you often experience. Know you have heard my voice, and know you are following me according to what I have marked out for you, in spite of what critics and naysayers proclaim to you and about you.
