In the Middle of the Mess: Strength for This Beautiful, Broken Life Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
How do you turn your struggles into strengths? Beloved Bible teacher Sheila Walsh teaches readers how the daily spiritual practices of confession, meditation on God’s Word, and prayer result in fresh freedom in Christ.
In her long-awaited book, Sheila Walsh equips women with a practical method for connecting with God’s strength in the midst of struggle. From daily frustrations that can feel like overwhelming obstacles to hard challenges that turn into rock-bottom crises, women will find the means to equip themselves for standing strong with God. Using the spiritual applications of confession, prayer, and meditation on Scripture to form a daily connection to Jesus, women will learn how to experience new joy as a child of God who is fully known, fully loved, and fully accepted.
In In the Middle of the Mess, Walsh reveals the hardened defenses that kept her from allowing God into her deepest hurts and shares how entering into a safe place with God and practicing this daily connection with him have saved her from the devil’s prowling attacks. Though we will never be completely “fixed” on earth, we are continually held by Jesus, whatever our circumstances.
Sheila Walsh acts as our guardian in In the Middle of the Mess as she
- shows us we’re not alone in our struggles,
- guides us through a courageous journey of self-discovery, and
- reminds us where to find hope, comfort, and strength in tough times.

Sheila Walsh has battled depression and suicidal thoughts throughout her life. At times Sheila felt she wasn’t worth saving until the night she realized that “the gift of Salvation is God’s active, present gift to us, no matter where we are.” She goes on to tell the reader how to be free to be who we are meant to be apart from our pain and shame.
Sheila shares the heartbreaking grief of losing her Mom and Dad in such a tender, relatable way which touched my heart. She writes of the truth and healing she received as she walked through the loss of both her parents.
The author states that “In the Middle of the Mess” is an invitation to find healing and strength in the middle of our mess. I loved the message of needing to unearth the pain, anger, and fears to Jesus and to be real with Him because He will be there to give us salvation. So powerful! She goes on to say that we need to confess what we’re feeling each day, trusting Him, knowing He is with us. We need to be truthful and dig deep.
Sheila Walsh has found that confessing in the darkness to Jesus daily has made her feel secure and held and that He loves her despite and because of her darkness. She conveys that people might not be comfortable with their truths which makes them even more important to let go of. Sheila invites Christ into the dark places. She emphasizes how important it is to confess all parts of ourselves to Him, to be honest, no matter how bad or hard it is to speak it out. It's the confession that we know how much we’re loved.
A few of my many favorite quotes from “In the Middle of the Mess” by Sheila Walsh:
“When I stop reaching from a place of pain and instead respond by taking my wounds to God, I find peace. By meditating on His great love for me, even in the middle of my messy emotions, I find strength. Only then can I understand that I am a well-
loved child of God. Only then can I respond from a place of love.”
“Telling the truth to Christ saves us, right there in the middle of the mess.”
“I’m not afraid of the pain; I’m afraid of the silence that leaves us all alone. I’m afraid of the secrets that left you all alone. Amid the silence and secrets, it’s easy to believe every desperate lie inside our heads, every monster that hurts us.”
“So, I’m punching a hole in the silence. I’m kicking in the door of secrets that keep us cold and lonely."
I absolutely loved In the Middle of the Mess and I am grateful to Sheila Walsh for pouring out her heart and soul into this much-needed message. Her faith-filled words are inspirational and encouraging! Sheila’s book is a blessing and I am confident her words will touch many hearts. Thank you, Sheila, for putting words to those dark places we all carry within.
I recommend this book to those who struggle with depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, or feelings of inadequacy in their Christian walk.
