The Storm Inside: Trade the Chaos of How You Feel for the Truth of Who You Are by Sheila Walsh was a pleasant surprise. I made the wrong assumption that this would be another “self-help-sort-of-book” with a Christian base, but it was sincerely so very much more.
The book is written for women, and dives into the depths of their internal and often unspoken struggles. Confidence and insecurity are addressed, but other topics such as the prison of regret, shame, and the feeling of unworthiness make this read highly meaningful and relevant.
Throughout the book, Sheila is careful to explain that no woman has it all together, none are perfect Mom’s, daughters, wives, etc., and she tells readers how to stop believing the lies. Walsh states, “We must replace the lies we have believed for the truth of who God says we are.”
Sheila Walsh’s intention is for women to live free of fear and the feeling of insignificance. She wisely notes that women can often feel things like shame, without even having a reason to be ashamed! She also seriously deals with letting go of past mistakes and not allowing them to define you.
“…believing is a choice. If you wait until you “feel” worthy of the love of God, then you will die waiting. We must receive by faith the truth that Christ has made us worthy.”
