Sheila Walsh shares with us a part of her journey where her faith in God and her understanding of her worth in His eyes are transformed. She challenges us to trust God despite our brokenness. In this book, Shiela continues to tell her story that left off from her previous book Honestly where she shared how she went from TV hostess and singer to spending time in a mental health institution. It is in this new book that she continues her story of coming out of that dark period realizing that God could use her regardless of what she thought or what she thought others might think, and still fulfill her dreams!
Sheila uses her experiences interwoven with lessons directly from the Bible to create an interesting and inspirational account of the Lord at work. I also enjoyed the fact that Ms.Walsh didn't just use scripture to support her experience, but she expounded on historical significance where appropriate.
"The Scriptures don't detail Joseph's story between the Sanhedrin events and those after Christ's death, but Mark makes note of something remarkable: As Jesus breathed his last breath, the centurion standing as his executioner announced, "truly this Man was the Son of God" (15:39). And then Joseph goes to Pilate to claim Christ's body.
Do you see the unmistakable mercy here?
At the moment and place of Jesus' deepest pain and shame, he allow sfor a Roman executioner to proclaim trust at his feet, a man who did not speak up when he could have now has the chance to take his life and reputation in his own hands and ask for the battered body of Christ.You can find Sheila's new book at Amazon, Christianbook .com, and Chapters
