I Thought I Knew What Love Was
The journey to intimacy with God
About the Book
From the time Erin Lamb was a child, she was curious about the God of the Bible. She grew up in a home with a pastor and Sunday school teacher, which made knowing God a part of everyday life. More than reading about Him, her heart longed to know Him personally, as Moses knew Him. Along this journey, she picked up a pen and paper and began to write about her experiences with God and His responses. I Thought I Knew What Love Was is a book for every person who wants to plunge deeper into the heart of God. If circumstances or life have made God seem distant or cold, the words on these pages will lure your heart on a journey with the God of the high and low places.
Understanding the depths of God’s love during the good and the challenging times is essential to living a joy-filled life. Erin has captured the heart of God through prayers, sonnets, and poems that reveal the human experience in relation to God. If you have ever felt as though God doesn’t understand you, then poems like “Agape,” “Even If,” and “Our Deepest Need” will reveal God’s unfailing love for you.
Whether you find yourself in the difficult places, or on the mountaintop, your heart and mind will be drawn to a more intimate place where you commune with God.
