In the Middle of the Mess
By Sheila Walsh
Strength for this Beautiful, Broken Life
Are you afraid your mess is too big for God?
Sheila Walsh knows all too well that feeling—and the hiding and shame that results from it. In her long-awaited new book, she shows how she broke free from the cycle of blame and despair by using spiritual practices that foster a deeper relationship with God.
From daily frustrations that feel like overwhelming obstacles to hard challenges that quickly turn into rock-bottom crises, the trials we face can seem overwhelming. But by using the spiritual applications of confession, prayer, and meditation on Scripture, Sheila demonstrates how we can experience new joy as children of God who are fully known, fully loved, and fully accepted.
In the Middle of the Mess reveals the secret to connecting with God’s strength in the midst of struggle. Though we will never be completely “fixed” on earth, we are continually held by Jesus, whatever our circumstances. God’s power is made perfect in our weakness, and he’s waiting to accept us and our messes—having already promised to love us, heal us, and carry us through to the end.
