God Loves Broken People

How many of us are messed up???  *Raises hand*

I know that I am broken, I'm not complete and  I have burdens, bruises and un-forgiveness that only God can remove. 

Shelia Walsh writes in the introduction that if she could write on book, this would be it! As I began to read this book, I had a difficult time putting it down. Reading this book, makes me feel like Shelia and I are sitting at a coffee shop chatting the day away. 

This book is beautifully written and has a great balance between personal struggles and understand the process grief takes on while being biblical. Shelia uses stories from her life and the lives of others to help the reader understand how during pain, we can draw closer to God. She utilizes scripture and stories from the Bible that have gone through difficult situations. 

I love the raw honesty that Shelia brings to the table. She talks about real pain and struggles. She is honesty in saying that the journey is long and difficult. However, God's love is real, deep and vastly wide. Through scripture, Shelia shows the reader that God is near us in our darkest hour. 

This book is very encouraging to those who have gone through significant pain. God will use these times in our lives to help others on their journey. I would recommend this book to anyone. Whether you have gone through a significant loss or have had minor struggles, this book is for YOU! 

I received this book from booksneeze. I was not required to give a positive review. This is my honest opinion!
