God is in the Fixing Business

Welcome to chapter 16 of "Uninvited" by Lysa TerKeurst. It has taken me almost a year to finish this series. Part of it was a new job and the other part? Well, I learned so much and grew so much, it was hard to see it end. I am a different person than I was in September of 2016! Praise the Lord! I feel as if God has peeled off some rough . . .

I Want to Run Away

I was intrigued by the title of this chapter. I remember when I was little I'd "threaten" my parents that they were being unfair and I was going to run away. I may have once...to a little tiny area in the yard across the street. Needless to say, I wasn't gone long and could have been found easily.

Silvrback blog image 

In Chapter 14 of "Uninvited", Lysa TerKuerst uses Psalm 91 as a prayer to work through the in-between times from rejection to healing. Reading and meditating on Scripture is healing and strength-giving.

I have to admit, sometimes the in-between seems like a desert...a no man's land of sorts. You want to move forward, but can't or . . .

Miracles in the Mess

I love the title of chapter 13 "Uninvited" by Lysa TerKeurst. Often God hides miracles in the midst of the mess and chaos of the circumstances in our lives.

The Enemy's Plan Against You

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 . . .

Feeling Rejected?

10 Things to Remember

Silvrback blog image

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.

2. "Rejection . . .
