No One Accepts Me
Do you ever feel like an outsider?
Do you feel like you cant be yourself
without people judging you, looking down on you? Have you ever wondered whether anyone
understands what youre going through? Whether there is anyone who cares enough to
really get to know you? Do you worry that if people actually did get to know you they
wouldnt like you, that youd just end up rejected and lonely?
Perhaps you know what its like to be mocked,
shunned, excluded, or just plain ignored. Being a teenager is never easy. It seems like no
matter how hard you try to fit in, there is always someone willing to put you down. The
message you get from both parents and peers is that if you want to be loved you have to
change. Why cant people ever just accept you the way you are?
A lot of people act as though theyll only
accept us if were better, or smarter, or more popular or whatever. We feel like we
have to earn the right to be loved; but then it seems like no matter how hard we try,
were never quite good enough for some people. Do you ever just wish you could find
someone . . .
. . . who will love you unconditionally?
. . . who wont condemn you for your mistakes
. . . whom you can trust with all your hopes and
fears, your tears and your triumphs?
There is one person who will accept you just the
way you are.
God loves you for who you are and for who he
created you to be. It doesnt matter what you look like; it doesnt matter what
youve done; it doesnt matter if you feel like no one could ever love you. God
still loves you no matter what. You are Gods beloved creation! He knows everything
about youthe good, the bad, and the uglyand he still loves you! Thats
why Romans 8:38-39 says: I am convinced that neither death nor
life . . . nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us
from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Nothing can stop Gods love! We dont
have to do anything to earn it; its unconditional, and nothing we can do can
separate us from it. Of course were still going to make mistakes and do things that
disappoint God. But even when we do, God is already at work to find us, to forgive us, and
to welcome us into his family with open arms. All it takes is for us to admit that
weve failed and come running into Gods open arms of forgiveness and love.
We all sometimes feel like no one cares, like no
one could possibly love us, like we dont fit in anywhere. But just remember that God
does care, that God will forgive all your failings and accept you just the way you are;
and if you will receive that forgiveness, you can be confident that you will always have a
place in his family.
If you would like to start a relationship with God
and know for sure that you are part of his family, talk to him right now from your heart.
You might say something like this:
God, I confess that Ive made mistakes. I
know that Ive disappointed you. Thank you for loving me anyway, and for proving your
love by sending Jesus to die for me. Thank you for accepting me just the way I am, in
spite of my sin. I want to turn from those things and live for you from this moment on.
Please be a part of my life and help me to follow you. Amen.
