As frontwoman of Proverbs 31 Ministries, referring to the wife of noble charachter, you might expect Lysa Terkeurst to be some kind of perfect. Fortunately, she’s as human as the rest of her fellow men and women around. In her latest book Unglued – Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions she shares some of her progressions while staying imperfect. Raw emotions are those feelings we hide from others but take out on those we love most.. Anger, stubbornness, unwillingness to listen, impatience, etc. Why would you explode while talking to a grocery clerk, children, co-workers or the returns counter? God gave us emotions, but these should be indicators, not dictators.
Not by simple 3-steps programs or instant solutions, but by replacing emotions, hormons and self-image to their ‘normal’ positions again, while staying honest about the effecte and non-effective use, relates to bot female and male readers. You don’t have to freak out. Keeping a Sabbath (or as a Christian a Sunday off) is necessary to resist being busy 24/7. Remember the Martha versus Maria story from the Gospels? And what about gossip, negative connotations inside the chatter? And the feeling of emptiness, loneliness, I have to do it all by myself?
Terkeurst shows how to let situations work for you rather than against you. Unglued, off-guard becomes confident and in control again. A participant’s guide is included to discuss the topics and personal questions in a small group.
