Did I just Get Rejected From McDonalds?



I've been turned down many times asking a "girl/lady" out on a date and it grows in you. After becoming a Christian, I've learned how to deal with it and move on. I've accepted it probably wasn't God's best for me.

  • Finally Free!, from

  • "...In my teens and early twenty's, loneliness held a grip on me. In my ignorance of the ways Satan leads one away from Jesus Christ, I began to look for peace and happiness with the party crowd. After all, they looked "happy." I began frequenting bars and places where I could drink and dance. I thought if I hung out at these places long enough, I might meet the right man - the man of my dreams. A man who would take away my loneliness and give me a purpose in life I had not yet experienced. Along with meeting men came alcohol, drugs and sex.
    It all came with the package. I soon discovered that "happiness" became an illusive term. The few times I was happy did not make up for most of the time I was miserable. Somehow, I seemed to attract men who simply wanted to use me for their own selfish purposes. These relationships only brought hurt and pain and rejection when these men were finished with me. Little did I realize that having sexual intimacy with a man, and hinging an entire relationship on sexual fulfillment is one of Satan's greatest tools for leading people into relationships for the wrong reason.

    Tired of Being Rejected

    At age 26, miserable beyond description; tired of being left and rejected; tired of not having a man to give love to and receive love from that had any lasting duration - I came to the realization that my life was going nowhere. Ever get that feeling? It's an ever-present feeling that makes you wonder why you're here on earth. Why can everyone else be happy, but not me?
    It was around that time that my thoughts began to drift to an old girlfriend I had partied with in the past. I wondered if she was still happy. We had always been close, until she became one of those "fanatic" Christians. Her life had changed dramatically, and although she was happy, I just felt she was too religious to hang around anymore. So I willfully lost contact with her for six years. On one particular evening I began watching a Billy Graham crusade on TV and reasoned in my mind: Even though she is religious, she can still be my friend, can't she? I was lonely for companionship. The next evening I was at a bar (typical of me on a Friday night) and I went to a pay phone to give her a call. She was glad to hear from me.
    We talked, reminiscing over old memories, and catching up on friends from our past. Our conversation ended by her saying she would call me back again soon. Two weeks went by and she didn't call. Finally I decided I'd call her one last time, and if she couldn't make plans for us to get together, I'd just forget her. So I called. Fortunately for me, she was there, and toward the end of our conversation she invited me to a young people's potluck gathering being held at someone's home that was being sponsored by her church. After we hung up, I began thinking: 'I need a change' Why not? What would it hurt?
    During the gathering, I sat there staring at these beautiful people. There was a glow about them I had never seen on anyone. Their faces radiated peace and joy, and their words were so gentle and kind. Later on in the evening many of them were asked to testify of how they had entered into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and how it had changed their life for the better. Each of them gave glory to God for doing it all, because it was not of their own doing. It was God doing it through them by His Holy Spirit, they said.
    Two weeks later I decided to surprise my girlfriend by showing up unexpectedly at her church. When I arrived, I found she wasn't there because she had to work that night. But there were many faces I recognized from my old party days, and I loved being there that night. From then on I started attending that church and eventually gave my whole life to Christ. I asked Him to not only be my Savior, but also be Lord of my life, which is what I neglected to do at age 13. Lordship, I was soon to learn, was not obtainable without having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

    Peace and Joy

    The loneliness and lack of peace I had experienced before began to leave. It was replaced with peace and joy I know now only Jesus can give. I found myself surrounded with a whole new set of friends, and the loneliness was also replaced with the hunger and thirst I now had to grow in Christ. I came to realize that no man could give me what I really stood in need of, which was the peace and security of knowing who I am in Christ Jesus. Whether I live or die, I know I have eternal life in Him, and through Him. Jesus Christ is my closest friend. Problems and suffering drive me to Him - not away from Him. And He always rescues me. His Spirit always comforts me.
    Since I have decided to seek my Heavenly Father and please Him through this personal relationship with Jesus Christ, by being obedient to His commands in the Bible, He has been so faithful in my life in adding those things that I had so deeply desired within my heart. One of those desires was to marry a man, someone who loved Jesus Christ more than he loved anyone or anything else, including myself. I wanted someone I could share Christ with - not about.
    It has been many years now since I made my decision to live for Jesus and several of those years have been with the man who God so faithfully and lovingly gave to me to be my husband. I can honestly say I never knew how precious and fulfilling a relationship with a man could be when Christ is the center of each of our lives. I thank God so much for His faithfulness in answering my prayers for a godly man. It is through this marriage that I am learning to depend and trust more in Christ to meet my every need, because my husband can never meet them all, nor can I meet all of his.
    Even though I knew this before I had a husband, I am learning that even with a husband, Jesus Christ wants me to be totally dependent and trusting in Him to meet all of my needs. When I do this, there is no leanness in my relationship with God or in my marriage. It takes the pressure off from my husband in asking him to do things he is not capable of doing.
    I take great comfort in knowing that God is faithful to complete that which He has begun in me through my personal relationship with Jesus Christ my Creator. (You may want to read Philippians, Chapter 1, for a clarification of this statement).
    For those of you who have a lack of peace, who fear dying, have something missing, who have no real meaning or purpose in life, or experience loneliness and sense a lack of motivation - I delight in saying that Jesus Christ desires to come and fill those voids in your life. But it requires that you let Him have total control of your life. That may seem scary or threatening to some people, but it shouldn't. The Bible says Jesus Christ is the One who made you. (See John 1: 1- 14 for Scripture reference).
    Thank you and God bless you for letting me share my heart with you. If this has touched you in any way, please don't go on in life without searching for answers to your questions. My questions brought me to see and realize that only Jesus Christ is the answer to all of my needs. I never knew I could be so free within myself, and it's all because I decided to follow Jesus - letting Him make me into the person He wants me to be - in His image and for His glory. ...

    Love Letdown

    "What is love, really? What does it look like? The world offers us many different versions of 'love', and we can be let down, hurt, surprised, or even rejected. But Jesus Christ showed us true, selfless love when He died upon a bloody cross for our sins and transgressions. Discover the meaning of true love in this short video!"

  • HAVE YOU BEEN REJECTED BECAUSE YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN? August 19, 2010 by elenaramirez

  • "..So when you are sharing your faith, and you are rejected. It hurts deeply. Because to reject your Lord, when you know, it was Christ that set you free, that becomes very, very personal. For he took the greatest sacrifice, by going to the cross, and giving his life for you. If you have truly repented, and have seen the error of your ways, by giving your life, your heart to Christ, for change, you understand, at what a great cost it took, for your salvation to be in tact. He gave his life, he suffered, greatly and died. But Hallelujah he arose again….
    I want to touch on some of the things we do, that may cause people to reject us. And if there is some truth here, and you are able to see this, it is not meant to condemn anyone, but if it convicts, and causes one to see, and change, or to attempt to rectify a situation, then my writing of this message, will not be in vain.
    As Christians, we are all called to watch our behavior. I Thessalonians 5:22 ABSTAIN FROM ALL APPEARANCE OF EVIL. The worlds perception of many Christians, is they see, that they are conducting themselves, just as the world. We have to be so careful anyway, because for the most part, and I see it so very strongly in our society, lately, that the world is not tolerant, to Christians, for many reasons. So, when we are rejected, because the world perceives our behavior, is not above a higher standard, we can see the error of our ways. So my question is this, what do people see in you? Do they see someone, who goes to church, maybe reads the Bible, but acts like hell the rest of the week? Do you cuss? Do you have any behavior, that would even promote, to someone any kind of evil? ..

    Above All (Crucified)

    Above all powers, above all kings
    Above all nature and all created things
    Above all wisdom and all the ways of man
    You were here before the world began

    Above all kingdoms, above all thrones
    Above all wonders the world has ever known
    Above all wealth and treasures of the earth
    There's no way to measure what you're worth

    Laid behind a stone
    You lived to die
    Rejected and alone
    Like a rose
    Trampled on the ground
    You took the fall
    And thought of me
    Above all

    For God So loved the world that, He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."

    Banned by PBS: Muslims Against Jihad - Part 1

    "FOX News Channel presents the documentary the Public Broadcasting System didn't want you to see. It's a film about the difference between moderate Muslims and the radicals who want to kill us. It asks where are the moderate Muslims and why aren't they speaking out against the Jihadists? And it was financed with $675,000 of taxpayers' money. This film was commissioned as part of the PBS series "America at the Crossroads" about the post 9/11 world, but PBS executives rejected it. PBS claims the filmmakers were "alarmist, overreaching and unfair." The filmmakers say they were censored because of liberal bias at PBS. On a topic this important, we think you have the right to decide for yourself."

    Social Issues


  • Door of Hope Testimony: Karen Abbott ,

  • "I could not imagine why anyone would ever think there was any other life for me. I was born gay and you can't change the way you are made. That thinking dominated my life until I was 34 years old, but "there truly is life after homosexuality."
    I rejected my female identity from the very earliest days of my life. My thoughts were consumed with wanting to be a boy. I was molested around the age of 3 or 4; became sexually involved with another girl in my teens; was married at 18 thinking that would fix what was wrong with me and divorced at 22 because I couldn't handle living a way that was opposed to the real me.
    From then until age 34 I immersed myself in the lesbian lifestyle, believing I had finally accepted my true identity. At various stages in my life I looked for God, but could never find anything that provided true fulfillment. My family attended a conservative, Bible oriented, church when I was in grade school and then we changed to a liberal denomination during my teen years. I went to the pastor once and told him I was so disillusioned about church and wanted to know God. I had such a longing for Him inside me. His reply was "I am disillusioned, too, and trying to find if he really exists."
    I tried a number of different religions and "self-help" groups and attended the "gay" MCC church for a time. Nothing could fill the void I had inside. Every relationship and pursuit left something unfulfilled and kept me searching for more. I had been running from and searching for God for a long time when I fell to my knees one night in late October, 1979, and asked Jesus Christ to come into my life. That night my heart was changed, my eyes were opened, and suddenly I knew I was not "born gay."
    It has not been an easy road. There have been a number of areas that I have had to wrestle through with God. I had to learn that being "set free" and being "tempted" are two different aspects of this new life. I have found freedom through the life of Jesus Christ in me; but I have also experienced temptations, trials and hardships which God has used to test and deepen my faith in Him.
    I believe a number of things prepared the way for me to turn to Him. Ten years earlier I had knelt at an altar and agonized for him to accept me, but I didn't commit my life to Him. For a time I lived a somewhat changed life but being unwilling to turn from the lesbian lifestyle caused me to not build on the intimacy God desired with me and the changes soon ended and I was consumed more than ever in my sin.
    At another point a friend I worked with challenged my understanding of "believing," since I claimed to be a Christian and believed that Jesus had died on the cross for my sins and rose again from the dead. He said if I truly believed then I would trust in, cling to, and rely on Christ for my life, it wouldn't just be a mental belief. I thought he was an extremist, but his words nagged at me for over 3 years until the day I committed my life to the Lord. I also had a praying mother who continually prayed for me and believed God could save me and change me, and she rallied other prayer warriors who interceded for my salvation.
    God has provided all we need to live the Christian life, but we are required to seek Him and to receive Jesus Christ into our life to open the way. We must count the cost and surrender to God's will for our life. There is a price involved, but it is not too great a price to find Eternal Life. I would not trade my life today for any of the "old life." I am truly one who Paul spoke of in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 .. Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.
    I gladly proclaim that a life committed to Jesus Christ can change. I could not have done it, but He has done what seemed impossible. I am a new creation in Christ Jesus and He has set me free from many things. The deep void inside is gone and as long as I abide in Him, His peace and joy fill my life to overflowing. The so-called happiness I had in my former life cannot begin to compare to what I have now, but I had to become willing to make Him Savior and Lord, to forsake all and follow Him. I have been transformed by the power of Christ in me. He is my life and I live for Him today. No one has ever filled my needs or loved me the way He does! What a mighty God I serve!
    In the book of Genesis is the story of Joseph who was given a robe that set him apart from his brothers. But that coat of many colors cost him a great deal. It cost him every close relationship he had. He was rejected, misunderstood, persecuted and mocked. GENESIS 37:4 says that all of his brothers hated him; but, many years later during a time of great famine it was Joseph who provided the way for his brothers lives to be spared. My life today is in the Lord's hands and I am committed to being available to the Lord so that He can use me to show the way and the provision that can be found only in Christ.. There is none to compare to Him .. He is truly my Savior and my Lord .. I live for Him today!
    In August '92 I was blessed to begin going through the Door of Hope study with the Setting Captives Free ministry and it has added powerfully to my walk and my life .. Blessed be the Name of the Lord God Almighty .. HE REIGNS! and He alone is worthy of our praise! May our lives glorify Him and be used mightily to add to the Kingdom of God!
