God Loves Broken People (And Those Who Pretend They’re Not) By Sheila Walsh Book Review

In God Loves Broken People, Sheila Walsh enforced the concept of dealing with your feelings of being broken. There are many ways to handle your wounds from your past. Shelia encouraged readers to believe and study what the Bible declares over your difficult circumstances. She described her own feelings about hurts in life and not understanding why bad things happen. She wrote this book to reveal her own struggles with her broken pieces. Jesus is always there to assist us when we are going through our hurts and our pains.

One of my favorite examples that Sheila shared in her book was how her husband had an extreme fear of water. The fear was passed down from his very own father. His father got robbed in a grocery store and they beat him and nailed him to a whiskey barrel. The fear of living his life and the pain he endured consumed his father. One day his father was watching the news broadcast. There was a breaking headline of the day telling about a boat drowning accident. He warned his son to never get in the water on a boat because he would drown. Sheila’s husband as an adult made a choice to start reading and speaking the word of God to overcome his fears. He decided that he didn’t want to pass down this generational fear of the unknown to his son. Now father and son go fishing together on the boat trusting that God will protect them. This story spoke volumes for me! The lesson is to believe the truth of God’s prevailing and life altering word. Fear and spoken negative words over our lives can be transformed with God’s healing and changing power.  

I would recommend this book to anyone who is struggling and feeling like they are the only one going through difficult times in their life. If you’re feeling broken and beat down by life then this book will offer you hope that God is still on the throne controlling all things. Asking the why things happen in our lives seem to be a common thing we have all done. It’s comforting to know that we aren’t alone in our struggles and heartbreaks. Our Savior is ready and willing to lead us broken and all until we make it to the other side. Even when we do make it home he will still be there but only then will we be completely whole. This book will reveal the truth to you about how much God still desperately loves you especially through your broken pieces!
