God Loves Broken People: And Those Who Pretend They’re Not by Sheila Walsh is worth reading. In the book Women of Faith® speaker Sheila Walsh shares her personal story of brokenness and God’s healing grace and mercy. The first chapter begins with the feeling drowning and how the deep waters bring us onto the love of God. She compares God to the “ultimate Lifeguard” and gives examples from scripture on His healing presence. Can you even imagine that Moses, Job, David, Jonah Paul and even Jesus were in situations similar to yours? During our times of drowning we depend on a mighty God to pick-up the broken pieces and deliver us into peace and safety.
In the book God Loves Broken People readers encounter a new message about God’s redemptive plan for their failures and shortcomings.
One bite of forbidden fruit is all it took to send humanity reeling from God. What Sheila Walsh unveils in God Loves Broken People is that God had a divine plan even then that is hidden underneath our pain and mistakes. God intends to wield our failures, our wanderings, and the deep hurt of our lives not only to drive us toward him but also to give us a deeper experience of his grace and healing power.
So many people, Christians and non-Christians alike, look at their wounds and sense that they are somehow beyond repair, that their moments of weakness make them spiritually defective. In this powerful book full of deep biblical teaching, Walsh encourages readers with God’s truth that he is not done with them yet, that he can and will redeem their failures to create a deeper intimacy with him and accomplish his kingdom purposes.
Everyone has messed up somehow, sometime. For anyone who is not able to move beyond and experience the deep love and grace of God, they need God Loves Broken People.
If you’re in a season of oppression, depression or just feeling blue…then you’ll want a copy of this book. Remind yourself how deep the Father’s love is for His children…and discover how to reclaim your intimacy with Him.
