Becky Tirabassi and husband Roger have a wonderful Sunday service which will be online FACEBOOK  3/22/20. I love Becky and her church is awesome.

Saddleback has been a favorite of mine online, and their local services are canceled during this epidemic. You will find the 3/22/20 message on Facebook and their web site….

www.saddlebackchurch.com

I’m a member of the Saddleback online prayer team on Facebook. Please join us in that community. And Becky is right there with her daily Bible reading posts on Facebook and her Change Your Life Daily Bible. You can join in her videos on FB and follow the reading plan by purchasing her Bible or using the PDF download plan on Viewpoint church’s page.

Viewpoint Church.  Author/pastor Becky Tirabassi’s church from Southern CA, USA. Becky has long been a  mentor.

More resources:  http://www.changeyourlifedaily.com/. Coming in January, read through the Bible in one year…with Becky on Instagram.

Rejection: We’ve All Been There

“Rejection steals the best of who I am by reinforcing the worst of what’s been said to me.” @LysaTerKeurst #UninvitedBook

Stay tuned for future reviews on the latest from one of my favorite authors, and pre-order your book today! Sign up now open for the next OBS (Online Bible Study) from Proverbs 31 Ministries. Details here!

Follow-up: There is an awful lot to take in with this latest book from Lysa TerKeurst.  I found myself looking at past rejections in light of who God says I am.  Her concept, He has set me apart while others may have set me aside, rings true to me.

The book is big on her life experiences, and as a writer you can just imagine the rejection she has endured.  You will find something to identify with, to improve on for yourself, or to share with others.  You will also find some quotes to remind yourself of her concepts, and that is something you may or may not like.

If you are a student of the Bible, the book is not short on Bible verses and stories from the lives of Bible characters are often used to demonstrate her points.  I would suggest further study of those stories, to get the full details.  I know her ideas are Biblical,  but for myself I need to dig deeper to gather the concepts out of the Bible that may back up some of these ideas on rejection.

The most you can do for yourself if you are experiencing the wounds of rejection, is to know that God has made a plan to accept you just the way you are.  His love is unending, His sacrifice on the Cross is undeniable.  Please visit the side bar if you are unsure of how to come to know Him.  He is the reason this blog is here, and He will not reject you.  Accept His love today.  Feel free to post any comments or questions…….

Romans 5:5-8 (NASB77)
5  and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
6  For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.
7  For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die.
8  But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
