Uninvited: Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, and Lonely By Lysa TerKeurst

Lysa TerKeurst has faced more than her fair share of rejection, as have many of us.  This book discusses ways to get through those moments of feeling rejected and set aside, focusing on the love that our Heavenly Father has for us. The message is that we are loved by the one Who matters most.
This was a very interesting book. Though I had to do so often, I didn't want to put it down. I wanted to read it straight through in one sitting.  I wanted to find the answers, the solutions, to the emptiness and loneliness.
This book was an inspiration to me to try to narrow my focus on Heavenly Father and to build a closer relationship with Him. He is the only one who can fill the void left behind by the rejection of other humans across my life.
TerKeurst made me think a lot about the way I perceive other people and their affect on my life.  I can continue to see them as a threat to the life that I want or I can see that they have a job to do here. The enemy isn't the other person; it is satan and his lies that say I am a nobody and unwanted.  Any hurts the other person is causing me is because of him and the hold he has on this earth. The battle is against him.
Many Bible verses and prayers are offered throughout this book to help us deepen our relationship with Heavenly Father and to see ourselves as set apart, not set aside.  He created us. He wants us by His side.  He is on our side.
I recommend this book to anyone struggling with the feelings of rejection and loneliness. It gives a great deal to ponder.

  1. This sounds like a wonderful book. One book that really changed my perspective is The Four Agreements, I highly recommend it There are 4 basic rules to follow and one is never take anything personally. My Mom often has to remind me of that rule, but it is so true.

    1. Thank you for this book suggestion.

      I hear that all the time about not taking things personally. I don't know how to not take things personally, especially when they are happening to or against me. Sometimes I think it would make life much easier to have no feelings whatsoever. If I could do that, then there wouldn't be so much baggage.

      What do you do to not take things personally? How do you do it?

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a blessed day. :)

    2. It takes a lot of practice to not take things personally. I try to push away any bad thoughts I get and think of something nice. I buy extra copies of that book at book sales, you can have one. Please send your mailing address to me at pilch92@aol.com
