O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is. Psalm 63:1.

“Unless we understand the concept of what becoming desperate for God is, we probably will never be in a place where we will be desperate enought for Him.”

The encouraging words of Mocksville native Teresa Dalton Staton are also found in her new book, “Becoming Desperate for God.” There will be a meet the author and book signing from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday at the Davie County Public Library, 371 N. Main St., Mocksville.

Now residing in Bethel, Station serves as God’s Undershephered in the assembly, Fellowship with Christ in Rocky Mount. Although she has spent the majority of her life away from this area, she always considers Mocksville as home and visits frequently.

She said the Lord poured into her spirit to write this book.

“Where we are in God and how far we go to get to where He is calling us to be depends on how desperate we are for Him.”

She believes that the Lord wants all to soar to higher places and to delve into the deeper places with Him.

“Becoming Desparate for God prompts us to examine ourselves and our walk with the Lord to assure that we are giving God all He equires of us to enter into these higher and deeper places of communion with Him.”

The book can be purchased at the event for $10.
