According to Dr.Charles Stanley, brokenness is the path to blessing. He says, "One thing I have discovered is that brokenness brings some of God's greatest blessings and periods of time when our lives are the most fruitful". Brokenness is God's way of dealing with our self-life, our desire for independence, and for control of our own life.
Stanley says that God breaks us for two reasons: to help become spiritually mature and to prepare us for ministry. And when we allow God to have his way and embrace our brokenness, we discover a new sense of freedom and power.
The Blessings Brokenness helps those who are hurting make sense of why God allows us to be broken. Based on one of Dr. Stanley's most requested sermon series, this attractively packaged book offers a new view of God's purpose in our lives.
