Great exposition and discussions on God's main promises to us
At some point in our journey with God, we’d be challenged to having tough times and wondered “Where is God?” or “Does He care?” or “What should I do, God?”. Times like these are the times when we need to look back at our own faith and to His Word. Do you know that there are over than 3000 promises God made in the Bible? Do you know that whatever you’ve been through right now, God has made a promise to you to never leave you? In this book, Sheila Walsh uncovers God’s promises to His people (i.e you and me) and why we should be focusing on Him instead of our own problems and harshness of life.

The book is divided into different chapters based on God’s main promises such as Grace, Hope, or Strength. Each chapter is solid and full of examples based on the author’s life and also specific stories in the Bible. We’ve probably heard about the stories mentioned in the book so many times, but Sheila Walsh (the author) does not simply re-tell the story. She has actually put a lot of thoughts and studied the original meaning of the words. The exposition is great and I did find a few things that I wasn’t aware before when I listened to the audiobook. She took me to see things in different perspectives (about Mary, John the Baptist, or the Samaritan woman near the well).

The audiobook is very well written and read. I didn’t realize that it’s read by the author herself until the end of the book! She speaks clearly, emotionally, yet authoritatively throughout the book. She definitely knows what she’s talking about and cares about the readers of the book. I truly recommend this book to further strengthen your journey with Him and to be a solid rock no matter what happens in your life – as His Grace is sufficient for all of us!

Are you willing to serve a God you do not always understand?
THE SHELTER OF GOD'S PROMISES is a tremendous introduction to living under the umbrella of the loving care of God, our Father. With feminine passion and tenderness, Sheila Walsh delivers her own work, which is aimed at women who are suffering. Her depth in applying biblical truths and principles is needed as much today as ever. With keen sensitivity, Walsh delivers a powerful exhortation to trust in the Lord especially during one's darkest hours. She asks, Are you willing to serve a God you do not always understand? Her answer is that God provides more healing for one's hurts than one can imagine. T.D. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine

Good reminder of God's Promises
My Take:

I received an audio copy of this book for review from Christianaudio.com. I loved that Sheila red this book as I find her accent very pleasing to the ear.



This book is about God's promises and how we can rely on Him not matter what. Unlike our fellow humans (as well as Ourselves) God never breaks His promises and we can take Him at His word.



This is not a sit down at one sitting and read (or listen in this case). This is a book that causes you to think and ponder. That being the case it might be a better book to actually have a physical copy of instead of listening on audio but if you listen to it you will absorb the truths just as well.



If you need a refresher course in just how much we can rely on God this is the book for you. Highly recommended. I gave is three stars just because I think it would be better in book form but worth the listen.
