W.O.W. of the Month: Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst
W: Why I picked up this book?
I originally picked up this book for a girlfriend of mine, who was, like me, struggling with singleness. Passing through Barnes and Noble one day, this little gem caught my eye and I thought, “Oh this would be a perfect read for me and my friend.”
O: Observations made!
The title is deceiving! It’s not just about feeling lonely, left out or less than. And it’s most definitely not just for the single ladies. Anyone at any stage of his or her life could benefit from this read. The overarching theme is about our identity in God.
Here’s a passage I highlighted, took a picture of, and then sent to all my girlfriends-
“Here’s the deal…when my identity is tied to circumstances I become extremely insecure because circumstances are unpredictable and ever-changing. I rise and fall with successes and failures. I feel treasure when complimented but tormented when criticized. I’m desperate to keep a relationship that makes me feel valuable…”
Gosh, who’s been there before!? Me me me!
W: Who should read it?
Anyone who wants to put the truth of God on in their lives and learn how to better protect their relationships. This book is a wealth of knowledge around trust, change, and God’s plan for your life even in the messiness and unknown!
