Today’s Worship Walk: Psalm 66:20

Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love for me!”

Psalm 66: 20

For most of my life I’ve struggled with feelings of rejection. I could search my childhood to try and trace the beginnings of it, but I’d rather spend my energy on moving forward in a healthier way. It hasn’t been easy, though. I’ve let the roots of this run deep and grow firm. Each proceed slight, each over-reaction to criticism, each unreturned call – I’ve used them to strengthen my sense of wrongness.

The truth is that I don’t have the ability to cut those roots on my own. But God has more then enough power to do it, and wants me to be part of the process.

How? Well, first by reading his Word. Absorbing passages like this one in Psalm 66 started the healing. Being more securely founded in His love has led me to question my habit of expecting rejection. My negative mindset has begun to change, and I’m assuming the best of others, whatever seems to be happening. It’s a much better direction to be heading in!
