“Every exit is an entry somewhere else.” -Tom Stoppard
Often times a rejection can be hard to take, but could it be that rejection is actually an invitation into something greater? Joseph’s brothers not only rejected him but they sold him into slavery. This however led to him becoming second-in-command of all of Egypt. Likewise, the unexpected lay off or abrupt end of a relationship may have felt like a set back, but could this actually be God’s set up into something greater? An end is but a new beginning.
Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! (Isaiah 43:18, NLT)
