Description

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.

    A girlfriend shared this book with me and I ordered it on Amazon Prime. I sampled an excerpt and decided that I couldn’t wait for the 2 day shipping and downloaded it on IBooks. I read it cover to cover in 24 hours. To say that there was a Word or message for me in Lysa’s writings would be an understatement. God knew I needed to read this. I can’t put into words the way this book loosened my pain from rejection and loneliness. Healing started. I would put this book in the hands of any woman I know.

    A personal journey through rejection and allowing God to heal that hurt. Lysa is someone that you feel could be your best friend. Her writing is so transparent and honest that you can't help but connect with what she penned. God has gifted her with the ability to touch my soul with His healing and teach me how to grow more deeply in Him. Thank you Lysa for sharing your intimate and healing experience.

    Lysa has a way of making you feel that whatever you have happening, she has done it. With a refreshing way of helping others through Gods word she is able to break down each chapter to anyone wanting answers or to become more in tune with there Christianity walk. Mrs Lysa has really helped change a lot of perception on the way I think or handle issues. I've just downloaded Unglued from her along with the daily devotional. Though we've not met, Lysa has he came a friend to my heart and soul! God is just good that way!! Infinite blessings to you all and I encourage you to read this! Dig deep! Don't just read it to complete it, read it to study and learn from it!
