and I am not sharing that…
Relationships and connections ~ two things on the top of my list of passions and priorities. That’s why I LOVE this newest book by my very gracious friend Lysa TerKeurst! (The Lord brought Lysa and I together as friends several years ago, and she sweetly refers to me as a “good friend”, though I think the “good” might have been challenged last week after I provided her daughters with off-limits “pyrotechnics” and after my husband broke into the TerKeurst cabin while we were on vacation…but those are stories for another day! Just note that she did not become Unglued by either circumstance, rather she met them with grace and humor!)
Truth is, we can all be difficult. Unglued steps us through the process of identifying how we react to difficult situations and teaches us through Biblical truths how to respond in ways that honor God.
At the heart of Unglued, Lysa’s message is about connections and relationships. Our relationship with God. Our connecting with His Word daily. It’s about nurturing healthy and God-honoring relationships with family and friends, even when they can be difficult…or when we ourselves can be challenging. And it deals with the truth that, once in a while, we have to prune an unhealthy relationship from our lives.
In this book, Lysa demonstrates how our relationship with God flows down into our relationships with family and friends and others. In her sweet, southern, down-to-earth kind of way, Lysa unearths the treasures of being unglued and reminds us that imperfect progress is progress and growth nonetheless. Unglued? Perhaps at times. But Philippians 1:6 promises us that God doesn’t leave us unfinished. There is hope! His hope.
I underlined just about every sentence in this book. I don’t say this often, but this is a must-read for women! And my husband loves this book, too! We think Unglued is for everyone!
Lysa sweetly gave me three signed copies of the “advanced reading copy” to give away to three of my readers! This book is also great for a small group Bible study (you can order the DVD teachings by Lysa and the workbooks! CLICK HERE).
HOW TO ENTER TO WIN: LEAVE A COMMENT AND PROMISE ME TWO THINGS:
If you can relate to feeling unglued at times…or if you have a difficult person in your life…or if you ever experience conflict in relationships…and if would like to enter to win a copy of Unglued, please leave a comment here with your name and email address. You just have to promise me two things:
1.) You will pray today for someone specifically who tends to be a difficult person in your life (please do not tell us who that person is!); and
2.) You will ask the Lord to search your own heart to see if there are any offensive ways in you that He wants to change through His truth.
We may feel unglued, but we are not unfinished. He who began a good work in us is faithful to complete it!
Check back on Friday when I announce the winners of Unglued!
