The other side of brokenness

"If I could write only one book in my  lifetime, I would ask God to make it this one, the very book you now hold in your hands. . . ."―Sheila Walsh

God loves broken people. And when weary, wounded men and women find a way to open their bruised hearts and somehow welcome Him into their personal darkness, they will find a love beyond anything they have ever known.

When the glass house Sheila had lived in for so many years came crashing to the ground, she began a new life outside the safety of those walls. No, it didn't feel good, nor safe―not at all. But it felt true. Sheila saw herself as a broken lamb limping after the Shepherd, not knowing where He was going, but knowing that wherever He went, she wanted to go with Him.

In twelve stirring, insightful, and deeply revealing chapters, Sheila Walsh shows how personal brokenness can open doors of intimacy with Jesus Christ that might never open in any other way.

It's not that God loves broken people more than those who imagine themselves to be whole―it's simply that they know they are loved. They dare to believe it . . . and through such trust, a new wholeness emerges from yesterday's broken pieces.

In "GOD LOVES BROKEN PEOPLE", Shiela Walsh gently reminds us that God loves us, broken people, who open up our battered hearts to allow God to heal our personal sorrows and heartaches. When our carefully created glass houses crash down, we slowly start to carve a brand new world beyond the safe haven of those demolished walls.

We are broken lambs, who limp after our Shepherd. We do not know where He goes but we want to go with Him. Our personal brokenness opens up the way to the heart of God. We broken people know that God loves us, a heart knowledge that we dare to believe, and through such blind trust, a whole new awareness emerges from the shattered ruins of yesterday's broken pieces.

The Shepherd loves us. We have no hope and no meaning in life apart from Him. We are not alone, we have never been alone, and we will never be alone. Our divine Shepherd is with us. He has always been there except that we will never know it unless and until we welcome Him into our hearts.

The dark little fingerprints in our lives leave not-so-easily-brushed-away smudges that only the Savior can wipe away clean from our slates. Let us bring the scarred, broken pieces of our lives to God and allow Him to do for us what only He can do. God can stitch together the torn fragments of our shattered lives into the most beautiful tapestry.

God loves us with a selfless, undying passion. He has committed Himself and His supernatural, omnipotent power to getting us safely home to heaven to be with Him forever.

God Loves Broken People is a wonderfully rich teaching book. I have just finished reading it a second time and have learned a great deal. Sheila has such a beautiful way of writing using her own experiences that allow the reader to relate to her and apply the spiritual truths provided to their own lives. Thank you, Sheila!

'God Loves Broken People: And Those Who Pretend They're Not' is basically one hundred and eighty pages of one broken person reaching out to other broken people with words of comfort, scripture, encouragement, insight, warning, and exhortation. Plus another forty-five pages of Bible study and three pages of notes.

Sheila gently brings healing truths for the wounds that the reader may have in his or her life. She does this through personal insight, scripture, and a constant call for the reader to join her in seeing things from God's perspective as shown in the scriptures.

Do we have pain? Yes. It is common to humanity. Pain and/or wounds that seem like they are going to take us out? Yes, even that kind of pain is common. Sheila takes an Introduction and thirteen chapters to show us how to overcome those things that can be overcome and accept those things that God has allowed.

She gives many examples throughout the book to better explain her points and they were all great. Nevertheless there are two examples that stand out the most for me. One being the Chinese woman looking for a mustard seed and what she found instead. The other one was the contrast between the baby Jesus and a baby prince of darkness.

The compassion she has for hurting people is clear throughout the book. Still she brings up concepts that aren't pleasant to embrace, but she works from a biblically solid base for what she says, and she bathes it all in God's fierce love and compassion. I definitely recommend this book to one and all.
