   By Mahjabeen Malik  

Hi, dear friends if you are worried, read this book Uninvited.  It will help you to reduce your anxiety and tension.

“The enemy wants us to feel rejected . . . left out, lonely, and less than. When we allow him to speak lies through our rejection, he pickpockets our purpose. Cripples our courage, dismantles our dreams and blinds us to the beauty of Christ’s powerful love”.

Uninvited is the most thrilling book physically, emotionally and spiritually. It is one of the most beautiful life-changing books. In my book review, this book works as healing medicine for those who have been hurt or injured in any moment of their life.

Uninvited is an experienced-based book written by a best-selling author, Lysa TerKeurst. She has described her deep feelings in the book about her own life experiences. This is a beautiful autobiographical book conveying a deeper message of living life and turning towards God. Lysa shares the memories of her painful pathetic childhood with the readers. She bitterly shares her countless time rejection as so many times she was abandoned by her father.

Lysa tries to guide readers to emancipate the wish to fall apart or control the actions of others by embracing God-worshiping the ways to process their wounds. She tells the readers that they should be aware of what to pray for the coming ten days to stable their soul and restore their confidence.  And she also teaches to overcome two basic fears that strengthen our sense of insecurity by knowing the hidden truth of belonging. She further suggests that we should avoid turning petty affairs into huge issues.

Lysa TerKeurst describes,

“There is something wonderfully sacred that happens when a girl chooses to realize that being set aside is actually God’s call for her to be set apart.” 

According to a review of Uninvited, the author observes the deep meaning of rejection and elaborates how God is looking at us when we feel dejected, lonely or humiliate. God has created a variety of people. All are not equal. Everyone has a distinctive nature and when someone sets aside from something, it means he is taking a courageous action to set apart from his/her own fellow-beings who agree.

The author emphasizes the importance of turning towards God Almighty. She teaches the readers to worship God when they are in trouble, and they should stop blaming God for any misfortune or any sad incident that has happened to them. She has also recommended a list of 10 blissful prayers in the book to recover the soul and re-build confidence.

“With you, Jesus, I’m forever safe. I’m forever accepted. I’m forever held. Completely loved and always invited in.”

Lysa is trying to console people who are living a miserable life especially after having an experience of rejection. She conveys a mystical and spiritual message when she recommends people to turn to God because God is Great He always loves us and is ready to embrace us. Only God’s love is true.

“The beliefs we hold should hold us up even when life feels like it’s falling apart”.

She says that in our life there is nothing to happen that God cannot control so we must be adherent to God and have patience. In other words, she acclaims that even in misery there is something good for us which God has kept a secret from us. She is of the view that God has knitted a plan for you about whom he kept you blind; so you need to wait for better future whenever the writer feels loneliness, she seeks pleasure in the remembrance of God.

This book is simply awesome, heart touching and motivational at the same time. I love ”Uninvited ” written by Lysa TerKeurst and I wish you to read this book.
