A must read: Get it HERE!
Uninvited, Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, and Lonely, by Lysa TerKeurst, is my book club pick for December. I chose this particular book because it is a beautiful, biblical, honest, and witty look at how we process rejection.
Whether it's being snubbed at a club, given the cold shoulder by a co-worker, abandoned by a parent, left by a spouse... we've all felt the pain of rejection.
With chapters like "There's a Lady at the Gym Who Hates Me", "Why Does Rejection Hurt So Much?" and "Miracles in the Mess," Lysa walks us through her own deeply personal experiences of rejection, examining the roots of rejection as well as rejection's ability to poison relationships from the inside out, including our relationship with God.
"God isn't afraid
of your sharp edges
that may seem
risky to others
He doesn't pull back.
He pulls you close."
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.
Written in down-to-earth prose and containing many pages of beautiful affirming quotes and scripture, this is a book anyone who has ever struggled with the pain of rejection and the resulting insecurities it can cause should read. In other words, everyone should read this book!
Lysa TerKeurst is the New York Times bestselling author of The Best Yes, president of Proverbs 31 Ministries, a wife and mother of five grown children.
Uninvited is available to purchase through Amazon.
