Unglued Devotional by Lysa Terkeurst


Unglued Devotional is a guide that will help you every day in becoming less emotionally unglued. What is emotionally unglued? This is when you become angry, upset, stressed out, critical, disappointed, and any other emotion that can make you react in a way that is less than ideal. She calls it an "imperfect progress" though, because some days your emotions will throw you for a loop, but that shouldn't keep you from learning a better way to deal with these imperfections.

I absolutely adore this book. Lysa Terkeurst writes in a way that many women can relate to. Every day there is a new lesson to learn; 60 lessons for 60 days. Every day Lysa gives us a bible verse, a thought for the day,  a prayer, and a story from Lysa's own life that relates to the respective verse.

Lysa is a very wise woman. It's hard to choose just one example to give you, because everyday is a new insightful way of looking at your every day little problems. One that I really enjoyed was Day 23 Vanished, she uses the verse Matthew 6:19-21 to reflect on. If you aren't familiar those are the verses in the Bible where Jesus says not to store your treasures on earth where moths and vermin destroy and thieves can break in and steal.

Then she tells us a story about when all her jewelry was stolen. The jewelry was more to her than just material possessions. They had sentimental meaning to her and memories attached to them. The point is, the only thing the thief really stole were the objects, she still had the memories. So, as soon as she realized all her jewelry was stolen, she thought about all the things she was thankful for, and prayed for the person who stole from her.

I would definitely recommend this book to other women. It's a fun and important read in becoming a more calm and better person.
