Broken and Beautiful: Let God Turn Your Mess into a Masterpiece by Christine Soule. Turning Tragedy into Triumph! Do you ever feel stuck? Overwhelmed by fear? Do you worry that if people really knew the secrets you hide, they wouldn’t want you? Do you wonder why you’re even here?
The things you hate about your life are the very things that excite God most. Your past doesn’t repel Him and your present doesn’t intimidate Him because He knows what He can do with them! The places where you feel hopeless are exactly what He wants to redeem and fill with beauty, dignity, and strength. He has a plan for your pain. A wonderful intention for your failures. A purpose for your hardest, darkest stories.
In Broken and Beautiful, Christine Soule shares the message of hope as she tells how God took the pieces of her own broken life childhood abuse, poverty, human trafficking, and more and turned them all into breathtaking joy and purpose. Told with honesty and humor, this is the story of a drug-addicted stripper’s transformation into an exuberant Jesus lover with a passion for meeting others in their journey and watching God’s love mends them together.
My Opinion: This is such an inspiring book you hear the author's stories and then scripture is incorporated so you can relate and also not feel so much guilt or shame. My pastor says frequently that every human is imperfect and that is ok as no one is perfect and Jesus knows this! It also gives you a better understand that when a door closes another opens and stay positive!
