AcceptanceSaturday, April 28, 2012
Filling out the application is not difficult in itself, but waiting for acceptance is. Hopefuls, like us, are put through a gauntlet of questions and each one causes us to try to prove our value. And, as each question is answered, more questions run through our minds. Will they think we are a good risk? Will they think we make enough money? Will they judge our credit fairly? I even ask myself if they care that I love gardening and keeping a home looking nice. But it all boils down to one main question, “Will I be deemed worthy?” That question hurts.
Acceptance is something we all want. We strive for approval. Whether it is with our peers, our family, or a new job or house, we long to be considered “good enough”. Unfortunately, we don’t always find the kind of acceptance we seek. Not everyone will like us. We won’t always be given that new job or house, and if we place all our hope in those things, we will be crushed. Praise God that there is another way!
