The Book I’m featuring this week is:
“In the quiet of an early morning, honesty finds me.”
Normally I feature Fiction but I’m currently in the middle of reading this book with a small group of friends and find it to be a great read so far. Satan likes to isolate us and make us feel like we are the only ones facing our unique battles, but the truth is many of us are attacked in the same or similar ways. It’s a great book for both finding our worth and identity in Christ while building healthy fellowship with other believers. I’m only about halfway through but I’m enjoying it so far.
About the Book:
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.
