Summary

Embraced is a beautiful devotional from Lysa TerKeurst, the president of Proverbs 31 Ministries and the New York Times best-selling author of Uninvited, The Best Yes, Unglued, and Made to CraveEmbraced features 100 devotions that will resonate with women in all stages of life by giving them a godly perspective on the issues they face each day.

A real embrace indicates an intimate level of closeness. It's not a high five or a casual handshake. The best kind of embrace is when someone we know deeply loves us, flings their arms wide open, and pulls us in close.

Through these 100 devotions, daily scriptures, and prayer prompts, listeners will be equipped to:

  • Begin finding freedom from the struggles that have held them hostage by learning new ways to experience God's love and more authentic ways to trust him.
  • Surrender their deepest hurts by processing them in a godly way with Lysa, a friend who understands their pain.
  • Hear the Lord speak intimately to their heart by learning how to seek his direction.
  • Release the tension of wondering: "If God is near why does he sometimes feel far away?" by spending intentional, guided time with him each day.

Embraced will be a treasured keepsake for you, as well as a meaningful gift for those you love.

Our hearts were made for this kind of love and security, but for many of us, we know more about the pain of heartbreak and fear than the unconditional love for which we were created.

In Embraced, Lysa shares her own struggles, doubts, and heartbreaks while pointing to the ultimate embrace: God opening his arms wide on Calvary through Jesus so that he could pull us close for all of eternity. Welcoming us into the safety and hope of his grace and his love.

A must add to our daily devotions

Lysa has a gift of seeing God in the routine and mundane. She turns her personal struggles into our encouragement. I spent a couple days at the beach listening to this book on tape. I'm going home more in love with Jesus. Thank you Lysa

Blessed

Sometime we don’t realize we need that little extra in our life until it’s given. My friends mom gave her this book as a gift. She then passed it along to her friends as a gift. It’s a wonderful eye-opening devotional with stories of real life with every chapter. I hope you find your something extra! Your worth it!!

Prefer the Author to read it.

I truly enjoy Lysa Terkeurst books. I prefer when she reads them. She adds more personality and her voice is more exciting. this is just my opinion. I truly enjoyed the book.

Very true

I am a big fan of Lysa. I have read this book, but listening to it really made an impression in my mind. My eyes of my heart have been opened. She helps me learn how to pray better and even out loud. Understanding God’s word through any of Lysa’s books and podcasts has made my life so different. I am not fighting flesh, I am fighting Satan.

Embrace your devotion time.

This book will change your devotion time. Each devotion took me on a mini-retreat from daily life!.
