Rejection can happen to anyone and does every day. It can cause different emotions in a person, which causes them to handle it in different ways. For example, when a person feels rejected they may experience depression.

The first suggestion for overcoming rejection (many will tell you) is the clinical approach. You know sitting on the couch telling a psychtriast your problems and than being prescribed medicines. However, there is another solution and it is the main tool to overcoming rejection.

The tool is having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It means staying rooted and grounded in God’s word and understanding that you will be rejected but the way you handle that rejection makes all the difference. It also means taking all that you are feeling about being rejected and turning it over to God. It is important you remember that you can overcome anything with God because He is your strength.
