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.

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

Not Threatened by Others' Success

Chapter 10 in "Uninvited" (by Lysa TerKeurst) talks about how we are to maximize God, which keeps our weaknesses in perspective. I love the quote in the picture, "There is an abundant need in this world for your exact brand of beautiful."

It has been awhile since I've blogged about Lysa TerKeurst's Book "Uninvited" but I keep feeling this nudging from the Lord to finish. So, I'm going to try to do that over the next few months and hope you will join in the journey. Check out all the posts in this category on my bio page

Relationships

 We have just celebrated Thanksgiving and I was blessed to spend some extended time with my precious family of 4 and good friends! It was so much fun to have time to play cards, eat, go shopping, talk and catch up on each others' lives.

As I sat and reflected this morning on the wonderful memories, I was reminded of Lysa TerKeurst's . . .
