Uninvited by Lisa Terkeurst


The enemy wants us to feel rejected . . . left out, lonely, and less than.
In Uninvited, Lysa shares her own deeply personal experiences of rejection–from the perceived judgment of the perfectly toned woman one elliptical over to the incredibly painful childhood abandonment by her father. She leans in to honestly examine the roots of rejection, as well as rejection’s ability to poison relationships from the inside out, including our relationship with God.

In life I think we have all experienced rejection, some of us keep that fear of rejection. I know that I still struggle with that sometimes, but as I get older it gets easier to deal with. I always find myself enjoying Lysa’s books, this one is no different. I know Im late to the party on this one but I did enjoy it. I think as a woman, she gets it, and rights whats in the depths of most of our hearts.

At the end of the book she includes a section of all the scripture passages she used in the book which I appreciate. It makes it easier to go back to and see where she is getting all of her information and if its lining up with what scripture says. Her writing sometimes includes things I think are unnecessary but other than that its really well done. The topic of being afraid of rejection and loneliness is one that I don’t often hink of but I think does affect a lot of our decisions.
