“Man’s Rejection is God’s Protection”

“Man’s rejection, is God’s protection”

This is a quote that I have been living by lately.

Last week, I was listening to an episode of the Lady Gang podcast featuring Jeannie Mai from The Real. As I was listening, she was discussing a lost opportunity years prior to her success and how that rejection allowed her to find something better and more fulfilling. This quote was enlightening to me and I began to think about all of the times when rejection has spawned an otherwise positive outcome for me.

For example, I had been working in the same seasonal job position from my mid teens into my early 20’s. For the first time in 6 years, I was blindsided when I got an email that stated that my services would not be needed for that upcoming summer. I became frantic and depressed. I took the first job that was offered to me because I was so nervous to be unemployed, even though it wasn’t related to my field. When I went to job orientation, I became suddenly depressed and I knew that it wasn’t for me. I went home and cried but then I suddenly woke up and decided to apply to every job opportunity so that I could focus on my career and not my loss. When I opened my email, the company that I had previously interned at had a position open for me and I jumped at it! I have been there now for 3 years, working in my field of study and loving it.

The rejection in this case was my protection as it allowed me to grow in my career instead of basking in my comfort.

I think about my break up with my ex as well. His rejection was my protection. His rejection allowed me to self reflect and work on the parts of myself that weren’t so great. It also allowed me to learn that self love is the most important factor in life and that we can achieve this through a belief that we have the power to do all things because of a higher power (Call it God or not). I began to believe in the universe and this manifested into me believing in myself. I began to love the others around me more. Mostly, I learned to let go of people and negative situations that no longer served me.

I also learned what I did and didn’t want in a man so that hopefully I will get the chance to get love right in the future.

These were lessons I had to learn.

So, the next time you feel that getting declined for something is the worst thing in the world, always remember this: Man’s rejection is God’s Protection. You won’t see it right away, but you will soon see it manifest into a different and better opportunity.

Day 7: Next

“Your next blessing depends on what you leave behind”

Sometimes it is challenging to see that you need to leave something or someone that is so important to you behind in order to see growth in your life. Sometimes, in order to see these changes or personal growth, we do have to leave behind the things and people that no longer serve us. The minute that we release this into the universe, we are able to envision a different future and outcome for ourselves. This will leave us open to discovering our next blessing in any form by which it comes. Leave behind the past in order to be blessed in the future. Honour and work on  yourself in the present.

Day 6: Doubt

“There is a tendency to doubt your growth in the midst of a big leap forward. Hold steady and trust God’s strategy” – Sprinkle of Jesus

For the first time in my life, I have to analyze my role in the negative situations in my life. While I am becoming more self actualized, I do find myself taking steps back and feeling like I am not growing or progressing the way I thought I should be. My break up was my big leap forward as I needed this to happen in order for me to grow and mature as an individual. Maybe all of these negative moments and outbursts are God’s way of showing me that I need to make changes and realization of my behaviours. It is amazing to see how we can change when we realize our wrongs. We may lose people along the way of us making these changes but we have to accept that there will be better and happier moments along the way. I’m excited to see what growth and beauty will come from my dark period and setbacks. Everything good will happen in due time. Love yourself and trust in the process and you can move mountains for yourself ❤

Day 5: Feel

“Watch God take you from feeling disappointed to feeling anointed” – Sprinkle of Jesus

I think this quote related directly to being hopeful. Being hopeful gives us the courage to grow and move into new spaces. Instead of being disappointed when things don’t work out, we should learn to feel grateful that they didn’t and hopeful that something new and better will come. This will help us to accomplish the goals and things we need and not just want. Pray on it and it will eventually come to be ❤.

Day 4: Savage

“Pretending to be a savage won’t heal that hole in your heart” – Sprinkle of Jesus

There is a hole in my heart from my heart break and in dealing with that pain I did treat some of those that were close to me in a unkind way to fill that hole in my heart. Do I feel better? No. I do feel worse, however, being a savage did teach me about myself and my friends. Those who knew me and knew that I was just in pain forgave me, but those who didn’t really know me dismissed me. Being a savage didn’t make me feel better or fill that whole in my heart but it did help me to realize the difference between right and wrong and I will take that into the future.

Day 2: Power of Prayer

“Keep praying for your family. God is hearing you.” – Sprinkle of Jesus

This quote means to me that I need to pray for those close to me. Anyone I feel is family even friends need prayer and I need to invest my time and energy into them so that God can continue to bless them.

Day 1: Stormy Weather

“Spiritual growth is being aware when there is a storm happening inside of you, you still remain prayful as it passes by” – Sprinkle of Jesus

Follow me on my Sprinkle of Jesus journey for the month of February. Everyday, I will write out the quote that is sent to me and I will explain its relevance to me at this time in my life.

The storm in me is currently that I am lacking self love and I am overthinking damaging things that were said to me, which has caused my mental health to deteriorate. I need to learn to reach out to God more than I have been in order to find peace within. I have to continue to pray in order to get through this time as my faith and my strength will guide me through.
