Live loved: Uninvited, by Lysa TerKeurst

When I came back from camping this past Sunday, I had a super cool surprise waiting for me. I received my first Faithbox. I had no idea what I would find inside…so fun!

When I opened the box, I was stunned to find the book Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst. It’s not even supposed to be released until later this week! And here I had a copy of it. I had read a blogpost/interview with Lysa about the book, and I wanted to read it. Honestly though, I felt weird buying it, and wasn’t sure if I was going to.

But there it was…the book had come to me! How beautiful is that!?

Uninvited

So, I’ve sort of temporarily dropped all my other reading and am soaking this one up. So far, Lysa is funny, vulnerable, and wise, and I highly recommend Uninvited. The title of this post is “live loved” because that’s the topic of the chapter I just finished. Not to sound dramatic or anything, but reading it, I feel a deep settling in my soul, and joy.

Here are a few good quotes:

“[H]onesty wants to speak to the least tidy version of the woman I’ve become.”

“I have to keep my mind focused on what the Holy Spirit whispers, not what my flesh screams.”

“What consumes my thinking will be the making or breaking of my identity.”
