Let us not grow weary in doing what is right, for we will reap at harvest time, if we do not give up. - Galatians 6:9 (NRSV)
The email stung. Magazine editors had rejected my devotional submission. I had put a lot of time and thought into that piece, and I believed in my words. I tried to imagine the editor’s viewpoint and to sense the challenging decisions they make each day reading endless submissions.
Rejection is an opportunity to rebuild my trust in God.

The RESILIENCE conference in 2021 was so uplifting and nourishing. It was wonderful to be with other Christians around the world at this retreat, who truly care about responding to trauma in a compassionate way by teaching spiritual practices to help with grounding and healing.”
Join us for the next RESILIENCE conference on September 29-30, 2023. Learn more at UpperRoom.org/resilience.
