Uninvited – Book Review
Have you ever picked up a book and felt like the author was writing it just for you?
That’s how I felt as I began to read Uninvited – Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, And Lonely by Lysa TerKeurst – and based on the fact that this book just debuted and is already a #1 bestseller, I think a lot of other women feel the same way!
Uninvited is both a deeply personal yet universally relatable book about how the enemy of our souls wants us to believe that we are unworthy of love – particularly God’s love – and how he will do anything to make us feel abandoned, unaccepted and unacceptable to others, and rejected by those around us – but how these are lies that we need to heal from.
In Uninvited, Lysa helps us to identify the damaging beliefs we are currently embracing and the ineffective ways we are currently dealing with our pain and – in their place – offers us transformative truths and powerful promises from God’s Word. She includes useful self-assessment tools and takeaways at the end of the book.
There are some books that I like to read and finish as soon as possible and other books that I like to read a little bit at a time, sitting and savoring over, letting the wisdom of the author sink into my spirit. Uninvited is one of the latter kind of books. I think Lysa planned it that way as she pauses often on the pages, offering thoughts such as the following for us to ponder over:
The mind feasts on what it focuses on.
What consumes my thinking will be the
Making or the breaking of my identity.
Uninvited is a powerful book that resonates truth from cover to cover. I highly recommend it to you!
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
