Seriously Write: The Transforming Blow of a Rejection

How do you handle rejection in your work and ministry? See what happens when God brings transformation through rejection in the story I shared on Seriously Write – a platform for encouraging and equipping Christian writers along their writing journey.

“I did it! I just hit the “send” button to the e-mail, delivering my first manuscript to the publisher. The next two weeks I spent eagerly waiting for a positive reply, convinced that since I have the calling and the talent to write, then it would be easy. I was confident in my abilities and excellence.

When I received the publisher’s negative response two weeks later, it hit me like a bomb. The rejection blasted my carefully constructed palace of expectations and plans of how my writing career would develop.

Be sure to pin me for later!
