beautiful things happen when a woman trusts God {review + giveaway}

I don't know about you, but trusting God can be a daily struggle for me. When life is happy and comfortable, going just like you planned, it is easy to trust God. But when there is pain and disappointment in life, trusting God all of a sudden becomes very hard. We have to decide if we can trust God even when our heart aches. We have to decide if we can trust God even when we don't see evidence of His power or His presence. And we can. Because we know who God is, because he is dependable and trustworthy, we can accept what he gives and takes away--even when we don't understand.

I am pretty sure I am not alone in my struggle to trust God. I love hearing the testimonies of people who have chosen to believe God's truth and trust Him despite overwhelming circumstances. I love to learn from others. So, I was excited to read and review Beautiful Things Happen When a Woman Trusts God by Sheila Walsh. 


Sheila shares with great vulnerability her journey from recording artist, to talk show host, to psychiatric patient. Through her brokenness she shares how hard it is to trust, how we learn to trust, how we live with trust, and how our lives are transformed by trust.

Not only does Sheila share her story, but her story is interwoven between the stories of ten men and women of the Bible who's lives were also transformed as they learned to trust God. Each chapter focuses on a different character--David, Paul, Abraham, and others--and lessons from their lives.

I was reminded of a few things about trust as I read through this book:
  • God is more interested in what He is doing in me than through me
  • It is never too late to start trusting God
  • When I feel lost or confused, I can navigate the worst places by resting on, trusting in, God's revealed Word
  • Nothing is for nothing--no pain in our life is wasted
  • You can trust God with everything you have and are, because he never has and never will fail you
  • Trust is not easy, but certainly life-changing

This book took me awhile to read (although I am not a very fast reader to begin with). There is so much information included in the chapters--lots of scripture to read and so many characters from the Bible to get to know. This book also includes a free in-depth Bible study for individuals and small groups as well as discussion questions for book clubs if you want to grab some friends to read along with you.

Would you like to read more about Sheila's journey and what God has taught her about trusting Him? Thomas Nelson Publishers has sent me ten books to giveaway to my readers. Yeah! Ten books means lots of winners!

Oh, I'm so excited to read this!

I have twins girls Grace & Faith who were born at 23 weeks gestation and spent 5 months in the NICU at Childrens Hospital.
Grace is losing her vision...and Faith is deaf {from her prematurity}.
While these are daily struggles we face, we know HIS plan and will for our lives are so much greater than we could ever know. But I do have to remind myself daily to let it go...and give it to GOD!

I just finished Angie Smith's book "I will Carry You" today and I feel like this book would be a great read for me now as well. My husband and I are expecting our second child in about 5 weeks or so and I need to trust that the Lord will guide us and provide for our family. I also need to trust that He will allow me to trust Him with the health of both our children as this is something I constantly worry about.

My dear friend just went through a hard delivery which involved delivering @ 29 weeks, losing over 3x her amount of blood (which is 5x the amount for someone who isn't pregnant), and a complete hysterctomy. I am having to remind myself to trust that He will make these things all work out for their good. Yet right now, as her husband tries to care for their 2 yr old, be at her side, and attend to their newborn daughter in NICU, it's hard to remember to trust! How beautiful it will be to look back down the road and see how God was working this all out for their good and for those around them! Now...to TRUST!

We just moved to Texas...far from any family and friends. Trusting HIM to meet the needs of our hearts. And you know what?! He IS meeting them, even (or maybe, especially!) in the moments that don't FEEL like He is! Maybe that's 'cause my feelings aren't generally based on NEEDS. :)
It also has drawn my hubby and me even closer to each other...and our God.

Hi Jess. First time to comment, but I have been a faithful reader since Cora went into the hospital. I am sorry I have not written to you before, but you have been an enormous encourager to me. Although I have not had to face the same challenges as you, I see that taking the leap of faith of complete trust in God can be difficult not matter where we are on our journey. My husband is a pastor and things are difficult for us right now. The church is not growing and we feel like such failures. Thank you for the opportunity to win a copy of this book! Blessings to you.

I struggle to trust God in so many situations, from tiny to big things. And you are so right that it's easy to trust him when things are going well. And it's also easier to trust him in situations that are not directly affecting you. That is one area I'd like to grow - trust him wholeheartedly regardless of who the situation is happening to.

I love your bullet point of 'no pain in our life is wasted', lately I have been thinking of all the pain in my life and how in the end God had a plan for all that pain...a great reward for my patience and trust in him.

Wow, I needed to hear that today. I found out today that my husband and I are not longer eligible to live in married housing because I wasn't able to get enough money to pay for my semester and dropped my last class that I needed to graduate. We are no longer students and they told us we need to be out in a month. We are newlyweds and I am a Canadian citizen going through the immigration process. I am not allowed to work and we are really struggling. the brake lines on our car broke two days ago and we arent sure if our car is going to last us...
I had a mini breakdown today and felt.. honestly very scared.
I am still feeling that way and unsure of what we should do right now. But, as you reminded me.. I need to trust God in all circumstanes..I wonder what He has in store for us.

My repuration, my chance in teaching may be gone forever, but im putting it in the hands of god to lead me. I have intreviewed, talked to and applied from gosh and creation around, had one day sub job and the woman cheated me out of my pay after I paid 65 dollars for my OWN fingerprints that she said id work enough to get back havent heard of another day to work since, begged the pastor to even meet wtih me to discuss it (church based daycare) he wont even TALK to me.. Some minister of god he is UGH.. But a door may be opening im seeing a small crack, it wont be in preschool but in an infant and toddler room an area that I didnt want to work in because it hurts that my children are older now and the fourth baby we wanted we couldnt have (had tubes tied and regretted it for many many years) but he is going to lead me through this, he has gotten me this far..

I would love to read this book! I am learning to trust God in that I often think that my plans for myself and for my family are best and that my agenda and schedule is perfect the way I lay it out...but I need to give all my days, hours, minutes over to the Lord to chart. He alone is the orchestrator of our time on earth so why shouldn't I turn every moment over to Him?

I have been wanting a good book to read and have been searching for something; I think this is it! Even though it is difficult for me, I have been putting my worries on God's shoulders and trusting in Him for many things. Mainly for balance between home and work. I have a husband and 4 children at home ranging from 18 yrs to 8 months and have just been given a difficult assignment at work.

I have not seen this book before, but it made me smile when I read the title & your post. When I was a senior in college, someone interviewed each of us and put together a senior book with all the interviews~ anyway at the end of my story I said, "You don't always know what God is going to do, but when you trust Him, it's always a beautiful thing." :)

Right now I am trusting God in His perfect timing of bringing about change in my husband's job that will allow us to return to building our marriage and family the way we know God wants us to and not let the "corporate world" dictate that for us.

Love your blog~ thanks for the chance at receiving this book!

I came back from our family vacation (the first vacation we had taken since we had kids!) to find out I had lost my job. I lost sleep for weeks wondering how we were going to survive on one income. I prayed about it and realized that God would provide for our family in some way. It has taken me a lot to trust, but 3 months later, we are still afloat. It's not easy, and things are tight, but I am trusting in Him to work out all the details!

It will happen with His timing. He has the perfect timing. And He knows if we are meant to have any more children at all. That is a hard concept for me, but I trust God. And I know that if that is His will then I am no less blessed. I have already been blessed with a wonderful little girl and maybe me wanting more is just selfish.

I also trust him to hold and protect my daugther who I lost and is waiting for me with him in heaven. I need to strength my trust in him that he will help me find health care professionals that will listen and understand and treat the underlying problems instead of just the symptoms. I have struggled with this for years.

Sounds like a great read! Who doesn't need to trust God more in their lives? I know this is something I've been personally struggling with for a long time. Jess, thanks for your blog--I enjoy reading about your faith and relationship with God more than you know.

I have to trust in God that he will make me a mother in his time, not mine. I have my good days and my really bad days, but I know I can and must. I would love this book!

My trusting today is b/c I'm flying, which I don't mind, but it's the being gone for 12 days, I do mind. All grand adventures and I am thankful for that.

There are so many things in everyday life that I need to trust God for: finances, employment, my kids and husband's health and safety. Also, a dear friend of mine just had a devastating loss in her family, and it's hard right now to see that this pain is not for nothing...continuing to pray and trust!

I would love the book too. My daughter loves her Bible books for girls. I pray daily that I am teaching my kids to trust God as well.

I am working on my relationship with God. I am a child of God but have lost my way. I have had a falling out with my sister and I am working with God to find a way to repair it.

I would love to win the book. I want to teach my children, 14 and 10 that it is important to have GOD in their lives and the need for prayer. Hoping that when they are grown and have their own children they will be able to teach their kids like I am teaching them to love themselves and others.
I love reading your blog!
Molly :)
