Do you ever feel left out, lonely, or less than? Today, learn the secret of belonging which will help you keep rejections in perspective and be better equipped to foster healthy connections in your relationships.
In Uninvited, Lysa shares her own deeply personal experiences of rejection from the perceived judgment of the perfectly toned woman one elliptical over to the incredibly painful childhood abandonment by her father. She leans in to honestly examine the roots of rejection, as well as rejection's ability to poison relationships from the inside out, including our relationship with God. With biblical depth, gut honest vulnerability, and refreshing wit, Lysa will help you:
Stop feeling left out by believing that even when you are overlooked by others you are handpicked by God.Change your tendency to either fall apart or control the actions of others by embracing God-honoring ways to process your hurt.Know exactly what to pray for the next ten days to steady your soul and restore your confidence in the midst of rejection.Overcome the two core fears that feed your insecurities by understanding the secret of belonging.
Uninvited reminds us we are destined for a love that can never be diminished, tarnished, shaken, or taken—a love that does not reject or uninvite.
TerKeurst (Unglued), president of Proverbs 31 Ministries, addresses the darkly emotional issues of rejection and loneliness. Blending personal stories, a wry sense of humor, and biblical teachings, TerKeurst writes as though she's chatting with a close friend. Many women will relate to her fears that the woman on the next elliptical hates her, or to her total panic when she walks into a room filled with people she doesn't know. TerKeurst doesn't just share empathetic anecdotes for readers in a rut; she focuses on digging down to the roots of anxiety and providing tools for overcoming self-doubt and handling the pain of rejection. TerKeurst is candid about how women allow rejection to define their worth and how too often they approach the world from a place of scarcity and emptiness. She encourages her readers to "live loved" to abide, delight, and dwell in God and practice an abundance mentality. Accompanying Bible verses, takeaway lessons, and practical applications help the reader put TerKeurst's words of advice into action.
This book was amazing! It really opened my eyes to how issues from my childhood has impacted every life changing decision in my life. Only God has the ability to heal and restore and when we run to Him instead of other things He will do just that.
From A Male Reader
What an incredible book. I have to admit I’ve only read a dozen or so books by women. I’to more from a presumed lack of connection across gender lines more than anything else. Lisa’s book providentially found its way to me, and I am so grateful to have read it. As one who has struggled with rejection issues for nearly 45 years, this book was so helpful. Hearing her own process and progress bred hope for me. I five-star recommend this one to anyone - male or female.
This book is amazing and right on point she speaks truth very helpful and encouraging book to read when struggling with rejection.
