The Shelter of God’s Promises-Book Review

The Shelter of God’s Promises by Sheila Walsh

I’ve heard Sheila Walsh speak numerous times at Women of Faith conferences. She’s a gifted speaker, singer and writer. Shelter of God’s Promises is her latest effort from Thomas Nelson Publishers.

Walsh has broken this devotional down into 10 promises from God:

  • Promises, Promises / I Need Something to Hold On to
  • Provision / I Don’t Have Enough
  • Peace / I’m Afraid and Feel Alone
  • Confidence / I can’t See God’s Plan in This Pain
  • Love / I Don’t Believe That Anyone Could Really Love Me
  • Grace / I Have Failed
  • Hope / I’m Broken
  • Strength / I Feel Things Are Crashing Around Me
  • More / I Know There’s Something Better
  • Home / I Have a Future

The introduction was tough to get through but Walsh does a nice job using Scripture and interweaving personal stories to discuss these 10 promises from God.  She’s a very honest writer, very easy to identify with.

I feel the need to point out that I’m not much of a devotional person so when reviewing one, I feel I’m not doing the book justice. That being said, Shelter of God’s Promises is a solid book and would be a great resource for a Bible study either on your own or with a group.

I received this book for free as part of Thomas Nelson Publisher’s Book Sneeze program in exchange for a book review. I was not required to write a positive review.
