BOOK DESCRIPTION

Readers encounter a new message about God’s redemptive plan for their failures and shortcomings. 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.

MY TAKE 

I Love Love Love Love this book!!!!  Never have I ever read a book that brought me to tears with in the first 5 pages.  I was one of those people who knew they were broken but didn’t know the extent of it.  This book is a great at showing that we all need Jesus and just how much God loves us.  It doesn’t beat you up with accusations or point out your imperfections.  In fact she points out more of her own and then shows us the love of God in the mist of the brokeness.  We are human, meaning we all sin and we all have some form of brokeness, even when we don’t see it.

I also love that the books comes with a bible study of each chapter.  The questions are deep thinkers, meant to get past the surface level answers and get the root of the issue.  The best part is knowing at the end that God loves you and he’s a expert fixer.

I can’t wait to buy this for people that I love. Definitely 5 star worthy.  Must Read!!!

Favorite Quotes:

“I believe with everything in me that God loves broken people, and that when somewhere in the painful process of that breaking and bruising we find a way to welcome Him into the darkness, we come to know His love in a way we have never known before.”

“Over the years I’ve learned that while Jesus’ love remains constant, our experience of that love does not.”

“But your sin—no matter how dark a stain you think it has left—can never keep you apart from God. Only your stubborn will can do that. ”

“Bummer lambs are in fact the most blessed of all the sheep in the pasture because they are the most personally and intimately cared for by the shepherd…

Why? Because they know his voice best, and they have been held close to his heart. It’s not that he loves them more; it’s just that they’ve been broken enough to let that love in . . . down deep.”

God Bless,
