JessicaNicholeAge: 18-24Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Rejection steals the best of who I am by reinforcing the worst of what's been said to me.June 8, 2020JessicaNicholeAge: 18-24Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4This is the first book by Lysa TerKeurst that I've read and it was a wonderful introduction to a beloved author I now love.
In truth, I've carried this book with me for quite a long time. I would always look at it and wonder if now was the time to read it but I never felt quite ready to open it to the first page and start reading. I was slightly afraid that it would touch a deep part of my heart that I kept tucked away hidden from the world and that fear kept me away from reading such a beautiful and raw message about the lies in rejection.
In Uninvited, Lysa shares a series of experiences in her own life where she felt the painful sting of rejection. It's through those vulnerable, gut wrenching experiences that she's able to teach helpful and God honoring ways to better process the hurt and to overcome the fears that feed our insecurities.
My favorite part of the book was how sincere Lysa was with the message she wrote about finding truths in the midst of rejection and the joy that comes when we choose to live loved. She created a safe place where I could openly learn while not being ashamed of the emotions I was working through. It truly was like I was talking to a friend I'd known forever.
I also loved the different stories Lysa referenced from the Bible. Her words intertwined with scripture helped create a different perspective on rejection and how to cling to the promises of God's truth above all else.
After finishing this book I realized that even though we may feel rejected, left out and lonely we can find peace in God's promises and we can rest assured that Jesus loves us and that there is hope to be found even in the middle of rejection.

Beth5 Stars Out Of 5UninvitedNovember 10, 2019BethI actually bought this for a friend and am reading it over and over myself.
I can't get hold of my friend from OEA, but hoping I will soon so I can share this book with her, even though I've come to believe I need it more than she does. Refreshing to my soul and personal relationship with Father, loving this book and loving God more as I read it.
