Live Loved

Have you ever read a book that resonated with your soul on many levels? Me too. I recently finished Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst. Uninvited is life changing. So many quotes are underlined in this book. This is a book I will be unpacking for a long time. The three points that really impacted me are: God’s love is placed on me, I choose what enters my heart and rejection never has the final say.

Live Loved

God’s love is placed on me

First, God’s love is placed on me. I loved the reminders of how much God loves me. He loved me before I was born. There is nothing I can do to earn God’s love. The creator of the Universe loves me because He created me. And because of that deep love, I need to live loved. When I step into a room, I want to walk in the fullness of God’s love. This is hard to do because I am human. I want people to notice me and give me approval. But, this is an area I am growing in. My focus when I walk into a room now is to bring God’s love to whoever I come in contact with. To walk with my head held high because I am the daughter of the King of Kings and my Daddy loves me deeply.

My heart

Secondly, I am in charge of what enters my heart. I choose to let love or hate in, forgiveness or bitterness and so on. On page 69, Lysa shares a quote which has really hit home for me; “Bitterness, resentment, and anger have no place in a heart as beautiful as yours.” Jesus resides in my heart and there is no room for anything that is not of Him. This is tough but something I will continue to ask the Holy Spirit to guide me in. My heart needs to be forgiving, loving and full of joy.

Rejection never has the final say

Lastly, the point that really impacted me was a quote found on page 208 “Rejection never has the final say.” Amen and Amen, right? I pump my fist in the air and charge forward standing on truth. Until I get hit with more rejection. And then, I am back to wondering what is wrong with me. This is when the Holy Spirit gently prompts me and whispers that because of Jesus I am okay and loved. I am cherished. I am valuable. Rejection never has the final say. God always has the final say!

This book has changed my life and I am grateful for that. I desire to live loved and bring God’s fullness wherever I go. Each day, I choose to fill my beautiful heart with love and forgiveness. And finally, I will believe that God has the final say. Rejection will not win!

Living Loved
