This may sound odd in our technologically savvy society but when I read, I love to have the actual book in my hand. I do own electronic readers but there is something about having the actual book in hand while I sit down with a cup of coffee and enjoy some time to myself. I was recently introduced to a company called FaithBox that we featured in our Faith Based Gift Guide. They deliver a monthly box filled with items that help to build your faith such as books, stationary, or nick nacks from companies that do good along with their own daily devotional book. Plus, money from your monthly subscription goes to provide meals to families in need.
This month I received the book by Lysa Terkeurst called “Uninvited”. Ever have those moments when you feel left out? It is so easy for us to see what we were “not” invited to because of social media. Maybe that Christmas party everyone is posting pictures from? Or that girls night out? It happens to us all.
The enemy likes to sneak his way into our mind and we begin to feel like we are rejected. Lysa writes, “rejection isn’t just an emotion we feel. It’s a message that’s sent to the core of who we are, causing us to believe lies about ourselves, others, and God.”
“God’s love isn’t based on me. It’s simply placed on me. And it’s the place from which I should live…loved.” Wow, Lysa’s words are so true and words that we need to all take to heart. We need to live loved and know that God wraps us in His arms when we begin to have those feelings of rejection or any other insecurity. “Our minds and hearts are like dry sponges. What we focus on is what will soak in and saturate us.”
Lysa Terkeurst is an excellent author and has, once again, written another book that you will not want to put down. Thank you Faithbox for including this book in your box!
