Dear Ms. Ezell:Thank you for your letter of April 17. After careful consideration I regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your refusal to offer me employment with your firm. This year I have been particularly fortunate in receiving an unusually large number of rejection letters. With such a varied and promising field of candidates it is impossible for me to accept all refusals.Despite your company's outstanding qualifications and previous experience in rejecting applicants, I find that your rejection does not meet with my needs at this time. Therefore, I will initiate employment with your firm immediately following graduation. I look forward to seeing you then.Best of luck in rejecting future candidates.Sincerely,Matt Taylor

Rejection doesn't have to be the end of the world.

That's certainly a unique way of handling rejection — and no, I don't recommend it to you seniors graduating in a few months. But how do you handle rejection? We live in a world that rejects our belief in a Creator, our commitment to Jesus Christ, our morality.

The rejection might be overwhelming if it were not for the assurance that those of us who are "in Christ" have been "made accepted in the Beloved." (Ephesians 1:6)

If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. (1 Peter 4:14)

Rejection doesn't have to be the end of the world, and it won't be if we live with the assurance that God has accepted us.
