more acceptance and love nowadays

  1. I am not sure if this is correlated with my becoming a Christian or the fact that since becoming a Christian I am just noticing it more, but I am noticing that I am feeling more and more accepted and loved by people than I ever had before. In the past, I felt rejected and hated. I met people who jsut treated me as if they had already made up their mind about me. They looked at me and hated me. that was my experience growing up. Even a guy I dated didn't seem to like me too much. but nowadays it's like the opposite. I feel like, when i join a new group, i am accepted. and I feel love around me.

    has anybody felt this way or am I imagining it?

    I think what you are experiencing is the love of Jesus for you through becoming a member of the family of God! We are safe and secure and find ourselves in places (mostly the local church) where love and acceptance flows freely for each other, which is a good place for great growth.

    We all will experience some rejection, but most of that comes from unbelievers and the weaker brothers and sisters, but through it all, we have the deep knowledge within that Jesus will never leave us or forsake us---His promise.

    On the other hand, many of us receive greater approval, acceptance and preference from those outside of the Body of Christ simply because we exude the sweetness of Jesus and radiate His love and goodness. These are those whom the Lord is calling!

    2 Corinthians 2:16
    To those who are perishing, we are a dreadful smell of death and doom. But to those who are being saved, we are a life-giving perfume. And who is adequate for such a task as this?

    Let it flow through our obedient hearts and lives, Lord Jesus!

  3. That's euphemia said I'm sure its the love of god radiating out of you that's drawing that love back in...

    I'm glad you're experiencing the better side of people / humanity :)

  4. I was gonna say that :)
    and that also. When Jesus is IN you HE flows FROM you and peeps can see that and most of them WANT that. Share your experience with them :cool:

  5. Hi everyone. The irony is today i had a bad day. i felt so alone and socially rejected and like people hated me. Somedays I feel that way even though the overall feeling is of lovingness and acceptance. I do have days like today. It's like things seem harsher, and i feel excluded. For instance i was out of the loop for these lunch plans, and i just felt so invisible today. however on my drive home i thought maybe i am being so self-involved. It's not all me me me all the time!
  6. Remember Galations 2:20?
    I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

    I have this in my office desk :D It not you anymore.. When you gave your heart to Jesus Christ, is it no longer you who lives. But Christ within you. As the love of God flows out from you, you are going to see acceptance. Also remember, devil will be working overtime!! LOL! We are still in the same world which crucified Jesus. He himself told us. We might also face rejection because world wants to reject Jesus. Ups and downs are going to be part of life

  7. another thing that made me blue is that a new guy started in our office and I am afraid he is one of those brown-noser types who likes to show off and one up everybody. I am pretty humble in my work. I guess i am afraid he is going to outshine me with his bombastic style. apparently our boss LOVES him already. i really REALLY do not like to compete with these types of people. I can already see right through him. :-(
  8. Hello my sister! Very glad to hear from you.

    You just remember this. The boss is that for a reason. If you see through this person......I promise you that he does as well.
    YOU just do what YOU do best and everything will work out!

    Romans 8:28........."ALL things work together for good fore those who are called".

    Some people loved Jesus and others(majority) hated him...

    Dont be too focused on people and the impression you make on them ..people are so you one minute ,talk about you the next..just keep God on the forefront of your mind.
