In Sheila Walsh’s latest book, Beautiful Things Happen When a Woman Trusts God, she examines the lives of ten Bible characters who chose to trust God. These men and women were flawed human beings. Some exhibited lives of faithfulness (Anna) while some had mere moments of trust in the midst of sinful rebellious lives (Samson). Woven throughout the stories of God’s people are lessons about trusting that Sheila has learned in her own life and challenges for the reader to trust God more fully.
I enjoyed learning from the lives of these Bible characters, especially some that are seldom discussed or studied, such as Joseph of Arimathea and Tabitha. Beautiful Things Happen….does an excellent job of making not only the stories, but the feelings, the pain, and the dreams of God’s people real. If you have been in a season of life when God seems silent, or when you are struggling with pain, fear, or broken dreams, this book will have encouragement for you.
I received a free review copy of this book from Thomas Nelson publishers through BookSneeze.com in exchange for my honest review.
