Get Lost

Get Lost by Dannah K. Gresh

Goodreads Summary:
Have you ever ditched a friend for a guy? Filled your journal with more thoughts about guys than God? Found yourself jealous because that other girl gets all the dates? Maybe it’s time to get lost—in God.
 
Discover how to get so lost in God that a guy has to seek Him to find you.
 
Dannah Gresh traces God’s language of love through Scripture to help you pursue your heart’s deepest desires and seek love the way God designed it to be. Because once you identify your true longings and let God answer them, you’ll know just how to respond when romantic love comes along.
 
With a guided ten-day Love Feast Challenge, Get Lost will help you see for yourself how getting lost in God opens the door to lifelong fulfillment.

My Review:
This is a great book about what is means to fall head over heals in love with Jesus. There truly is no love that is stronger, or greater, or better than the love you can experience with the Lord and Savior. He is love.

I believe that you cannot be truly and completely happy without knowing the love of God. Sure, romantic relationships are great and will make you happy at times. However, they cannot complete you. Only God can complete you. He is the only one who will love you Unconditionally, all the time, no matter what.

The main idea of the book is this: "Discover how to get so lost in God that a guy has to seek Him to find you."
I agree with this to an extent. Like I said above, I think you have to experience Christ's love in order to have true happiness. Therefore, I want my spouse to love the Lord as I do. I want him to put God first, and me second. The main problem I have with this idea, is that it is almost teaching that as soon as you love God and are content in Him, he will send you your significant other. That's not necessarily true. (That may not have been the author's point, but I know many people who interpret it that way.) The goal is to be so in love with God, that you don't need anyone else. If He so chooses to send you a significant other, that should just be a bonus. All you need is God.

4 stars
I received this book for free in return for an honest review.
