Bible Verses for When You Feel Rejected

Feeling rejected can be so hard, and make you feel alone in this world. I am sure more often than not we can admit that we have felt rejected at some point in our lives.  

Your husband has declared he didn't want you anymore?

You got looked over for that promotion?

You didn't get asked to go and do something when everyone else did? 

Feeling like you don't fit in, and so on? 

No matter the reason of being rejected, it can create a lot of hurt and make us feel unlovable. Just one time of being rejected, and it can cause us to create a wall and allow our minds to think we are unlovable and no one will accept us. 

Or you might feel God is leading you to do something, maybe speak out in a group setting, like with the ladies group, but you have such a fear of rejection, you are missing out on using your gift and talents! 

The fear of being rejected can create a weakness in us, and we have to make sure to not get in the mindset of being afraid because we won't fit in, or that people will make fun of us! 

Below you will see a variety of bible verses for when you feel rejected. When we take what is said in the bible on how God feels for us, and place that as our identity, it makes us virtually rejection proof! 

When we use God's word as a shield to the hurtful things people say, it will start to strengthen our emotional and spiritual health.  

We start knowing and believing that the rejection of others has no meaning or power on our true identity! Just trust and know your worth in the word of God, and those fears and feelings of rejection will begin to slip away. 

Speak these verses over your life, and trust and know they are truth, and be set free from the feelings of rejection!

5 Bible Verses for the Christian Parent

My floors are dusty. We moved to Mexico last year and are just settling into our home. ( **update** We are now back home in Tennessee, but plan on taking regular missions team down to Mexico!) It’s not finished. No counters and cabinets. And no flooring yet, just raw uneven concrete.

The concrete flooring is causing a major problem with dust in the house. We cannot walk barefoot in the house. I can dust everything one day and the very next day everything has a thin layer of dust coating.

The house is a work in progress. Just like us - parents.

Parenting isn’t easy. It’s a beautiful thing, but it is not easy.

Some days my heart overflows with all the love and cuddles of my littles. And yet, on other days, I’m grasping the bathroom sink, looking into the mirror thinking I have no clue what I’m doing.

So I dove deep into God’s word to find these 5 Bible Verses for the Christian Parent to help encourage us through the ups and downs of parenting.

5 Helpful Tips for the Hard Seasons of Life

As I pulled away from the coffee shop after saying goodbye that Sunday afternoon, I began weeping. With tears clouding my eyes, I managed to navigate onto the freeway for the long drive home. Alone. 

I thought of all the people around me driving to their various destinations and wondered if any felt as sad as me, or were they all happy on this sunny summer Sunday? 

My husband and I had been living four hours apart for several months because of his job. His help was necessary at another facility, and while I was proud of his skill-set, it broke my heart for us to be apart. 

I hated saying goodbye on Sundays. I came to dread the end of every weekend because it meant a week of being alone, of worrying about my husband working incredibly long hours, and of dealing with all things happening back home. 

Things were falling apart. My car was having mechanical issues, our shower in the master bedroom was leaking causing the wood to rot, and worst of all, our daughter was struggling terribly with anxiety. 

I decided the best thing to do on that car ride home was to turn on some worship music to lift my spirits; otherwise, I was going to unravel completely.

Where Does Joy Come From?

True joy only comes from God. The joy of the Lord is my strength.

I live in Mexico. I announced this last year HERE. We are independent missionaries who moved to Mexico to reach the extended family and the community for Christ. 

We visited a family a couple of hours drive from us recently. It's a beautiful drive through the hills. 

The lack of greenery allows us to see every groove in the hillside which creates a beautiful view for the drive. 

The small property was surrounded by a cactus fence and on the property stood 5 separate buildings of one room dwellings and a single bathroom. 

Chickens greeted us. Dogs treaded underfoot, begging for food. Small bits of trash scattered everywhere. 

We were greeted with a warm smile, sloppy handshake and a brief tour of the grounds before we were lead to the main room. 

A medium size room held the large bed, refrigerator and storage area. We sat on the bed and on plastic chairs.

5 Bible Verses for the Exhausted Woman

You know that feeling of exhaustion that hangs heavy on your chest? It steals your joy and energy. Yes, that's it. 

Amidst the hustle of trying to adjust to living in another country, homeschooling 2 kids, managing the home, and my part time job - I'm exhausted. 

Barely keeping my head of above water some days. Working hard. Going to bed exhausted. Waking up weary. 

Putting on the smile and cheerful attitude so others don't see, because - after all- I'm the christian and should not feel this way. 


And feeling ashamed about these feelings. Which makes it worse. 

I sat re-evaluting my time with God. 

*Have I fallen short? 

*Am I distracted? 

*Is something getting in the way of me hearing God's voice and resting in His arms? 

*Has my daily time with God become more routine instead of deep passion? 

Diving back in with a fierceness in my soul I cranked up the worship music and wept. Skin on the cold tile. Tears pooled beneath me. 

I cried out for renewal!! Praying and worshipping God. Telling Him all I need is HIM. He is enough. I begged Him to change me. 

I dragged out my truth journal from it's hiding spot and wrote out my ugly feelings that overwhelmed this momma's heart. 

I then wrote out the truth over myself, my heart, my feelings and my life. Making sure to add Scripture and to let my heart and mind settle on those verses of truth. 

So I share these verses with you in hopes that when you grow weary, tired or exhausted you have them bookmarked already. 

Turn to them quickly and let God's Word settle on your heart to give you rest and renewal. 

5 Bible Verses for the Exhausted Woman

 "For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee." Isaiah 41:13

There is just something that soothes my soul to know that God holds my hand. He doesn't leave me. His faithfulness doesn't waver during my weakness. 

 "For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
 Matthew 11:30

This verse reminds me that whatever I may go through here on earth... death of a beloved, betrayal, set backs, exhaustion etc - all of it is light in comparison to Eternal Glory and the reward that I have in Heaven. 

"But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me."    

2 Corinthians 12:9

God's power is made perfect in weakness. It's not about me, what I can do or what I can not do. It's about Jesus and His story of rescuing me from sin. It's about Jesus! He is enough. 

"You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word." Psalm 119:114

I remind myself of this over and over again. I allow my heart to settle on this. God is our refuge and our shield. My hope is in Him and He is enough! 

"And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart." Galatians 6:9

This verse helps me to keep my perspective in check. God wants to be my refuge and strength, but I need to not give up. I need to keep pressing forward. I need to keep doing the good work. 

Inspiration and help for the tired and weary woman.

The next time you find yourself feeling exhausted, remember these verse and dive into God's Word - asking God to guide your heart and thoughts. 

Remember God sings over you and He loves you with a passion. You can do this - momma - wife - daughter of God. You can do this, because God has you.
