You see him walking down the hall, (what do you mean who? Don’t ask me who. You know who I’m talking about!) and all the sudden your mind begins to move at a  whirlwind speed! Will this be the day that he finally notices you! How long has it been since you have wanted him to see you? How long have you waited to get his attention? And still, if you do get it, how far will you go to gain his affection? How much do you really need him?

Maybe it has been the same guy for months or years even. Or maybe it is a different guy every week. You can’t seem to help yourself with these feelings. It is a longing in your heart that you can’t describe – the need to be noticed and the need to be recognized and loved. It is as if you cannot be complete without him. And he doesn’t even realize everything he is to you.

You desire and you want…you push yourself further every time.

This is just an example of the violent craving that Dannah addresses in her book, Get Lost, to be released on April 2nd. Not only does she talk about the craving, but she also talks about the cure. Included in this book Dannah walks you through a 10 day “love feast” and finally the fulfillment. This is a book about God and guys and how we can sometimes get them mixed up.

“Discover how to get so lost in God that a guy has to seek Him to find you.” 

Love can be a complex word. We love our family, we love our friends, we love our food? The English language by far is lacking in the area of what love really is. Dannah goes though scripture and talks about the Hebrew and Greek words for love and what they mean. In example, Hesed is the Hebrew form of love to describe the God kind of love for us. In the Greek, this love is called agape. This love is unfailing, and is not rooted in emotionalism or circumstances – it is a love that is about the other and not oneself. This is the love that we really desire, and long for, and that is offered to us, but dear one will you respond? 

Get Lost with God as Dannah leads you through a 10-day love feast that will lead you to countless days in the love and presence of our Lord.

So what are you waiting for? It’s time to get lost!

21 Days of Never the Same – Day 2


PrintFor the last few weeks God has really been reminding me and deepening my revelation of His faithfulness. I remember when I first got that revelation of how faithful He really is.

A few years ago at my church’s Women’s Winter Enrichment Weekend, the speaker, Rev. Sue Willis spoke on the faithfulness and promises of God. I can’t say that I remember everything she taught on, but there were some truths taught that day that found their way to my heart.

The first of those being what is to this day one of my favorite verses: Hebrews 10:23 – “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.

This was the first revelation I received of God’s faithfulness in my life. And since, year after year I have seen it increasingly more and more.

Then today my school had the honor of ministering at Agape A/G in Weedville, PA. One of my dear friends Olivia was preaching and go figure, preaching on the promises and faithfulness of God. She did such an incredible job. Something that I really took from her sermon is when you doubt and don’t have that trust that God will fulfill the promise He has given you, then it can put you in a place where your trust isn’t strong enough to hold the promise when He gives it. Sometimes God is waiting on you to just trust Him and trust in His timing to fulfill it.

Something that God has been showing me and what I want to remind you of today is this:

When God gives you a promise, you have a promise and it’s not your job to see that it is made.

Sometimes it might seem like that promise will never be fulfilled. When that happens we can’t tend to take matters into our own hands. (Abraham & Sarah anyone? – Hagar, Ishmael…you get the idea. You want the Isaac. Not the Ishmael.)

God’s delays are not denials.

 Trust in His goodness to do what He has promised.

Hold fast. He who promised is faithful!
