A Crushed Tiara (Finding Hope in Rejection)

Her tiara was set
She was ready to go,
Her plush blue ball gown dress was glittering in the sun
How did she get so lucky as to have found a love like this?
She leaned forth to kiss her groom,
Then all of the sudden…
It all vanished before her eyes,
Awoken from her beautiful dream
She didn’t want to face reality,
Her boyfriend of 3 years just left her,
They were supposed to get married.
All the memories vanished before her eyes,
The promises of tomorrow, the pride of wearing that
glistening topaz ring..
Where would her dreams lie now?
He had graced her Insta page and infiltrated her Snapchat story,
How was she going to face the music now?
She felt like a laughingstock, a failure…even worse…rejected.
She ran to her closet, her sanctuary
filled with pillows and hiding the teddy bears she was supposed to have ‘grew out of'.
She hugged them tightly,
‘Dear, God. I need you. Please be my boyfriend. Please be the lover of my soul. Please be my everything.”
And then she heard back this sweet reply…Of course I will my daughter, You have always been my everything.
I know the sting of rejection can be parlaying. Whether you didn’t get the job, whether you got cheated on, or you just feel overlooked. Never forget that God knows you and SEES YOU and thinks that you are so very beautiful. It’s okay to cry, to grieve—get it out. But do it with God, do it with Him. He is holding your hand and you will get through this. He loves you dearly and He will NEVER leave you or forsake you. 
Sincerely, Stacie

Lord we don’t ask you today to take our pain away, but we ask that we give it to you. We rest in the fact that we can cast ALL of our cares on you because you care for us. May we carry your yoke, may we carry your burden because it is light, because the one we are holding on to is much too heavy for us. Catch our tears and be so near to us during this heartbreaking time in our lives. We are grieving, at times we feel hopeless and we are battling the decision not to end it all. So Lord, we need you, be our battle cry and our banner during the darkest of nights. May we feel your loving arms over our shoulder. In Jesus’s name, Amen.

  The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalms 34:18
