This quote is such a good reminder from "Uninvited" by Lysa TerKeurst in chapter 12.

"The devil is vicious, but he is NOT victorious". I'm so thankful that Jesus' work on the cross was complete and whole. Everything that I have ever done or will do, is covered by His precious blood . . .

Chapter 11 in "Uninvited" (by Lysa TerKeurst) talks about 10 things that we need to remember when we feel rejected.

1. "One rejection is not a projection of future failures." A rejection doesn't mean that you are rejected or a failure. It just means that it didn't work out this time...it's a circumstance from which to learn.

A New Normal?

Today, I'm continuing my reflections on "Uninvited" by Lysa TerKeurst. Chapter 7 is all about When Our Normal Gets Snatched. Wow, that is a loaded statement. I don't know about you, but I like the "known", the "predictable", the "comfortable", and the "normal".

Write 31 Days Challenge - Day 30
