Today’s devotional by Holley Gerth reminds us that no matter what kind of rejection that we’ve experienced in our world we are deeply loved and accepted by God.


saying yes“I don’t know how you came to be in this world. I don’t know who has walked out your front door or your heart. I don’t know if finding a seat at the junior high lunch table was easy for you or if you circled the room like a lost puppy. I don’t know if that opportunity you hoped for ended with a “We’ve decided to go with someone else.” I don’t know if life feels like one long rejection letter or one of acceptance and grace {or perhaps a bit of both}.

But I do know this: You’re wanted. 

Before you ever took your first breath, the God who spoke the world into being dreamed you up. Your life is his declaration of, “I want her in this world at this particular time, in this particular place, for irreplaceable reasons.”

That first “yes” God spoke over you turned into a weaving that took place in your mother’s womb. God tied together your strengths, your gifts, your smile and created the miracle of you.

And whatever has happened since you burst into this world, His purpose for you still remains strong. “For no matter how many promises God has made, they are ‘Yes’ in Christ” {2 Cor. 1:20}. God is still saying “yes” to your life. He is still saying “yes” to you being here. He is still saying “yes” to His plans for you.
