The Loser Label

00:00

Description

We’ve all felt the sting of loneliness, but we'll always find comfort in the One who'll never reject us.

The year was 1982. I was in the 7th grade and had just learned a tough lesson.

It was the day after student counsel elections, and I’d learned that if you didn't have beauty and boyfriends in middle school, then no one would vote for you. As I shuffled toward my locker, I found one of my election posters plastered with the word "loser".

We’ve all felt the sting of loneliness. Relationships can be hard no matter what age you are. But I've been able to find comfort in the One who will never reject me. The One who knows what it feels like to be rejected. The One who reminds me rejection from man doesn't equal rejection from God. The One who whispers to the girl standing at her locker, "Who are they to put a label on you? It can only stick if you let it."
