Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst
I don't know about you but I often feel like I am the only one. The only one that has been left out, rejected, lonely or less than. Not so says Lysa TerKeurst in her latest book, Uninvited.
TerKeurst shares her own experiences of feeling left out in life, along with some Bible characters that have also faced feelings of rejection. Uninvited is another one of those books where you feel like you are sitting in the coffee shop leaning towards Lysa and hearing her share her heart with you. In Uninvited, she shares a lot of ways we can learn to change our thinking about ourselves, about situations and about facing a room full of strangers at the next large gathering. There is a lot of good advice in this book. At the same time, that advice doesn't feel all preachy instead it feels up close and personal, like it is coming from someone who really cares to help you make life changes.
At the end of Uninvited there is a Bonus Chapter called, What's It Like to Do Life with Me? followed by an assessment to use with that chapter. In my opinion this part alone would be worth the price of the book. TerKeurst also shares Scriptures that relate to each chapter that are written out in the back. She follows that section with highlights from each chapter that she doesn't want you to forget. I would recommend this book to anyone trying to come to grips with rejection and loneliness.
To coincide with the book, Proverbs 31 is offering an online Bible study that starts September 6 and ends October 14. I have done the on-line Bible studies before and they have been very helpful to me. This is the link:
