Book Review ~ God's Shelter For Your Storm

By: Sheila Walsh

Beat down, battered, and worn out...the storms surround every part of our lives. It may not be the middle of a storm for us right now, but certainly someone that we love is in the middle of one and let's face it, we do not always have the right words to say. Sometimes words are not even necessary...a big hug, a prayer, or even stepping in to fill a need can help.

In the times when the storms are so big and we struggle to keep our head above water, this book is an amazing little life preserver. With glimpses of hope and help found in God's Word these promises bring peace to every storm ridden and weary soul that peeks at the pages. It can be read cover to cover or even a chapter at a time where the need is the greatest.

"Christ's promise to us is not that He will give us shelter but that He will be our Shelter." With chapters on "Promises, Promises", "Provision", "Peace", "Confidence", "Love", "Grace", "Hope", "Strength", "More", and "Home" there is something in here for each of us.

Here are two of the many treasures that I have already found in my reading...

- "What the disciples learned - and what I am learning too - is that how far the provisions will go is not the issue. The issue is whose hands those provisions are in."

- "We can spend the rest of our lives looking at what we do not have, or we can bring everything we have and are to Him and watch miracles take place."

In a world of uncertainty, pain, and struggle, where do you go to find solid and steadfast assurance?
