After years of struggling with loneliness and rejection, Shana Dorsey met God in a profoundly intimate way. In April 2011 God revealed to her the truth of the Song of Solomon: he is a husband who is passionately in love with his people, and heavenly marriage to him is what earthly marriage exists to display (Ephesians 5: 31-2) As a result of encountering God as her husband Shana has been healed of many of her insecurities and lives a happy, single life today. For this reason Shana is committed to helping women who struggle with singleness or emptiness find complete satisfaction in Christ.
Emptiness has been a major enemy of Shana’s. She was raised in a single parent home where her father was absent from her life. This fed her feelings of insecurity and rejection. Though she was raised in a Christian home she did not have a personal faith until college. Through the faithful witness of the Christians around her , when she was 18 years old she learned that God was more than just a distant figure in the sky; he was a loving Father. One day in her room, after feeling broken, she looked tearfully at the ceiling and whispered to God “ I can’t do this anymore. I can’t do this anymore alone God.” She surrendered her life to Christ and heard God speak “You are dearly loved my child, you are dearly loved.” When she heard this , she began to know God for the first time in her life and learned her identity as his treasured daughter. The healing didn’t stop there. Discovering God as Father laid the foundation of ultimately discovering him as Husband.
We first meet God as Father, then experience him as Husband (Ephesians 5:31-2) We have the potential to experience whatever relationship we need most from God because he is all things to us (Romans 11:36). But the most intimate relationship we can experience with God is marriage. It’s this incredible story of love that Shana shares with her readers in her book Immeasurably More: A Journey to Discovering God as Your Husband.
