The Longing In Me (Sheila Walsh)
I love Sheila Walsh. Her days on the Women of Faith Tours were awesome. Ever since, I have been a big fan. Her testimony is amazing and it felt like God was speaking straight to me. When I saw that she had a new book I just had to have it. It's called The Longing In Me. It is so inspirational. She writes about how everything in us leads to God. Everything we crave, everything we long for, everything we want. It all leads to the feet of Jesus. We were created to need Him.
We all have an ache in our hearts for something. We have a void that needs to be filled. Jesus is the answer. He will give you the desires of your heart and fill it with much joy and wonder. We have a hunger in our souls for God. His presence will fill us and make us complete.
No matter where you are in life, everyone craves something more. If you have lots of money, you still feel poor. If you have a great career, you still want more. If you have love, you still don't have TRUE love. Only God can give that. Only He can strengthen us and give us what we need.
Sheila Walsh is such a wise and Godly woman. Her counsel is Biblical and true. She tells us our longing is for Jesus. No matter how much we look to the wrong people, situations, things, on earth, it won't be fulfilling without Jesus.
If our lives are leading us away from God, we are doing something wrong. We must examine ourselves, spiritually speaking, and seek God. When we turn our lives over to Him, we will feel all our needs being met even in the harshest circumstances. Even when we fall, God is there to pick us up.
I encourage you to read this book. It is chock full of Biblical advice and wisdom. Sheila Walsh is an amazing writer and speaker. Her passion for God is so evident in her life. She is real and raw and full of emotion. You will not be disappointed.
