One of the most important discoveries any of us will ever make is that the Christian life is not an achievement but an awakening—something initiated by God and empowered by his Spirit. It demands nothing more than that we position ourselves for the transformational journey that he intends. When we do this, a wonder is birthed inside of us that is a reflection of God himself.
The acceptance and spiritual vibrancy we long for won’t be won through personal effort. Good behavior and dedicated service within the church won’t enable us to see who we really are. As important as these commitments may be, they are not prerequisites to experiencing intimacy with the Lord or to receiving affirmation of our self-worth.
The truth is that God has already placed brilliance inside of us. We are one-of-a-kind works of art, uniquely valuable not by virtue of what we do but by virtue of who we are—beloved children gathered into the heart of the Father who has made us in his image. Unfortunately, many of us are clueless about our true identity because it is buried beneath layers of personal brokenness.
From Broken to Beloved will lead you step-by-step, enabling you to say yes to the work Jesus wants to do within you. As you take one step after the other, you will begin to realize that “awakening” is not simply a beautiful concept but a healing experience that will enable you to see who you are so that you can receive everything God intends for your life.
