Trust Versus Control

Lysa Terkeurst is an author whose books I have read in the past. I am thankful for her new devotional that has come out recently.

Unglued is an easy to read, yet challenging daily devotional that addresses topics such as contentment, control, trust, and keeping the right perspective. These are all things people, especially women, struggle with. She does a great job of reminding us of the truths from God's Word, yet acknowledging the constant pull we feel from the world and the world's systems. 

As a mom of four children, three of whom are teenagers, there are many days in which I feel completely overwhelmed. Unglued, if you will. This devotional has helped me in many ways to reexamine how I respond to daily choices as well as the deep valleys of trial and despair.

Again, Mrs. Terkeurst has used her gift of writing to lift up the weary souls of fellow women, moms, wives, sisters and friends.

As part of the Booksneeze Blogging Network, I received a free copy of this book.

Finally getting a chance to check in. So sorry it's been this long. Life has been insane...and of course with not blogging anymore, I rarely do blogs.

Just wanting to see how you are doing?
