Invited.

Well it has certainly been a while. I have been crazy busy with school and life in general that I haven't had a second to sit down and blog. I am still trying to figure out the right times to get all of my stuff done, but I am definitely working on it. My life lately has consisted of class, homework, tests, projects, football, sorority, two small groups and more. I'm still chugging along though, so I guess that's the upside lol.

In my small group on Monday nights, we have been reading the book Uninvited by Lysa Terkeurst. Omg. If you haven't started reading this yet you are missing out. There has is probably three things each week that Jesus shows me I need to change in my life. It's a book all about rejection. We all face it but we don't think others face it.

Reading the first week I was completely in awe that someone else understood that feeling of rejection. And I was even more in awe when the other girls in my small group admitted they felt the same way. WHAT. That's the thing with rejection. It makes you feel so alone and that you are the only one going through rough stuff. 
You are the only one left out. 
You are the only one being trash talked. 
You are the only one alone.
You are the only one without anyone to turn to.

The chapters on rejection showed me that I don't need that negativity in my life. I don't need people in my life that just tear me down and never build me up. 
I need people in my life to make me feel invited.

It was a hard realization but it sure is one that I needed. It was like an instant weight off my shoulders to know that the rejection I have been feeling was not because I am weird or dumb or quirky. The rejection I was feeling was controlling every part of my life. I was in such a deep funk that I could not get out of. Then I just listened to God. I decided to create distance between me and the things that made me feel rejected. He told me I was always invited with Him and that would never change. 

You are invited and you are worthy.

XOXO,
E.
