The Storm Inside


Trade the chaos of how you feel for the truth of who you are.

Christianity is a battle, not a dream.
-Wendell Phillips

Sheila Walsh pens a solid book on the truth of how we let emotions and feelings sideswipe us. Illustrating the overwhelming burdens women live under through testimonies, Walsh tackles each with scriptural wisdom. These are the ten most common burdens women strap to their back and bury deep within their soul.
Heartache
Disappointment
Fear
Bitterness
Unforgiveness
Anger
Regret
Abandonment
Shame
Insecurity

I love Walsh’s question to her readers. “But what if he (Satan) tailors his attacks to fit us, the daughters of the King? What if his demons launch their assaults at the very places where we have shown the most vulnerability? What if he looks over our shoulders on all the negative confessions we’ve made to hone an all-out assault on our hearts? It is not beyond his deviousness to tune into our pain and turn it into a weapon to use against us.”

As hard as Satan and his demons work to pull our feet out from under us, we have to remain strong women of truth, strength, and discipline. We are daughters of the Almighty God! And Sheila does an excellent job bringing us up out of the wreckage of our emotions, bruises, hurts, and brokenness to show us God’s template for living by using solid examples from her life, other women’s crisis, and scripture examples.

I’ve never read a book that has challenged me so much and given me concrete ways to pull out of the ruts of life and move forward. Walsh asks tough questions, then helps the reader peel back the layers of uncertainty to find the hidden black core that consistently trips us up.

“When we make a commitment to no longer live by what we feel is true but by what God’s Word tells us is true, we can stand in the strongest storms of life.”

I seriously urge you to read The Storm Inside. I can promise you will want to read it a second time, and you will be buying additional copies to give to the women in your life who are suffering because they don’t know how to get out from under their emotions and the hard time life presents us.
