Abstract:
The enemy wants us to feel rejected... left out, lonely, and less than. When we allow him to speak lies through our rejection, he pickpockets our purpose. Cripples our courage. Dismantles our dreams. And blinds us to the beauty of Christ's powerful love. In Uninvited, Lysa shares her own deeply personal experiences with rejection -- from the incredibly painful childhood abandonment by her father to the perceived judgment of the perfectly toned woman one elliptical over. The author helps readers: release the desire to fall apart or control the actions of others by embracing God-honoring ways to process their hurt; know exactly what to pray for the next ten days to steady their soul and restore their confidence; overcome the two core fears that feed our insecurities by understanding the secret of belonging; stop feeling left out and start believing that "set apart" does not mean "set aside;" and the cycle of perceived rejection by refusing to turn a small incident into a full blown issue.

Summary

Summary

The enemy wants us to feel rejected . . . left out, lonely, and less than. When we allow him to speak lies through our rejection, he pickpockets our purpose. Cripples our courage. Dismantles our dreams. And blinds us to the beauty of Christ's powerful love.

In Uninvited, Lysa shares her own deeply personal experiences with rejection--from the incredibly painful childhood abandonment by her father to the perceived judgment of the perfectly toned woman one elliptical over.

With biblical depth, gut-honest vulnerability, and refreshing wit, Lysa helps readers:

Release the desire to fall apart or control the actions of others by embracing God-honoring ways to process their hurt. Know exactly what to pray for the next ten days to steady their soul and restore their confidence. Overcome the two core fears that feed our insecurities by understanding the secret of belonging. Stop feeling left out and start believing that "set apart" does not mean "set aside." End the cycle of perceived rejection by refusing to turn a small incident into a full blown issue.

Publisher's Weekly Review

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. (Aug.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
