Each Promise of God that is covered is one you are in desperate need of. Whatever you're facing, Sheila Walsh presents God's Promises to you with power that leaves you experiencing nothing but peace. I'll admit, I have not previously found Sheila Walsh's books to be powerful or pertinent in my life . . . mainly because I felt she shared too many personal stories that did not help her connect with her readers. At times, in the past, her books that I've reviewed seemed to show that she was disconnected with what she was writing, as well as the women who are suffering deeply. (almost forced writing, if you will) But, "The Shelter of God's Promises" is different. Sheila Walsh stepped aside and allowed God to write through her. She allowed His heart to pour out onto the pages, in order to connect you with your Heavenly Father who dearly loves you. Her writing seemed effortless, although I know otherwise . . . but the words flowed so wonderfully and each teaching grabbed your heart so tightly that you'll find it difficult to put this one down. The Biblical teachings Sheila uses and each Scripture that was chosen is woven together in a tapestry that will have a profound impact on your spirit. You'll find the shelter your soul is desperate for . . .Read more ›
The tragedy in Japan shook me down to the core, I was paralyzed with fear as a single deaf mother living in California. The rain fell on me and I wondered if I was slowly being poisoned with radiation. I did not trust the government and the news, I simply did not trust anyone and I trembled in fear as I held on to my five year old son. Did God forget me? Did my divorce from an unfaithful husband erase my name from the Book of Life?
The news served as fuel to my paranoia that was raging like an out-of-control forest fire so I decided to turn off the television and pick up The Shelter of God's Promises while armed with the dusty Bible. I have to say... that was one of the best decisions I've ever made. It is quickly evident that Sheila has a gift of words and she helped chase away the fears that were causing me to become blind to God's promises. With a mind that was finally vacant of fears, worries, and doubts... I was able to humbly approach God and listen to Him. I am a child of God and He loves me like a mother loves her child!
I finished the book in a couple of days since I was unable to put it down. I was sorely disappointed when the book came to an end but also thrilled that it is in my personal library. I will definitely be reading this book often throughout my life and I urge EVERYONE to read this book, especially when God seems so distant. It will be refreshing to your weary soul and be sure to have your Bible handy since there is a free Bible study included in the book!
Particularly poignant were her insights into the story of the woman with the blood issue in Mark 5, a story I've heard touched on countless times from countless perspectives, but which had fresh meaning through Walsh's analysis. Likewise, her assessment that the saints are living far below the standard God has for His people evokes a resounding "Yes!" and is a message that all the church - especially in the West - needs to understand.
There are two major things missing from the book which I believe could give it significantly more impact. First, while Walsh spends a great deal of time stating the promises and their implications, she does not lay the groundwork for "claiming" them. That is, just like the children of Israel were rescued out of Egypt, many of them died in the wilderness before ever entering the Promised Land because they failed to possess the land. Likewise, many Christians today are wandering - floundering in the wilderness - rather than taking their rightful heritage that the LORD has said is for them.Read more ›
