We are all broken souls prior to God’s healing love.
Longwood, FL (Vocus/PRWEB) April 04, 2011
What you believe in your heart to be true about you or life is how your mind decides what life choices you make. If those choices are made from a damaged child’s heart, or an adult’s wounds that were carried forward, those choices will not be healthy. We are all broken souls prior to God’s healing love. We react to life from an internal brokenness and expect a different outcome to result. It doesn’t work that way. Hope on the Horizon: Shackles That Bind ($16.99, paperback, 978-1-61215-490-9) by Gail Stoewer shows readers how to get a different outcome—one bathed in purpose, meaning, and God’s love for them as individuals.
Human choices and circumstances are the “shackles that bind” us, even when those circumstances take us down paths we never intended to walk. All humans go through loss, disappointments, grief, pain, and sorrow at some time in life’s journey. Giving up on God or blaming Him is not the answer. It is God’s love and our trust in Him that releases those shackles.
Stoewer herself is no stranger to pain and loss. “This is my personal story of a normal person losing everything that mankind clings to for identity and connection,” she says. “Some people endure sudden, devastating loss, but mine was just normal living with everything slowly taken away. My identity was gone. Who was I, and what was truly important anymore? I no longer fit in this world.” Divorce, eviction, an infant’s death, her only son’s incarceration, drugs, loss of all family, financial ruin—Stoewer fought against God and doubted Him, which eventually caused the worst pain of all, until she came to the end of herself and allowed God to pick up the pieces of her broken life. Today, her history has given her a great compassion and understanding of other people’s grief, allowing her the honor of a God-designed purpose for her life journey.
