We look for you

God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.
(1 John 4:16; NLT).

1. Lord,
We look for you
Beyond ourselves:

2. Searching,

3. Thirsting
Day by day;

4. When all the time
You dwell, Lord God,
Within us:

5. For you are
Our soul,

6. Our life, our truth,
Our way.


1. God looks down from heaven on all mankind (Psalm 53:2; NIV).

2. All night long I search for you; in the morning I earnestly seek for God (Isaiah 26:9; NLT).

I long for you, O God (Psalm Psalm 42:1; NLT).

3. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God (Psalm 42:2; NKJV).

Every day I call to you, my God, but you do not answer (Psalm 22;2; NLT).

4. You are the temple of the living God (Luke 17:21; NKJV).

The kingdom of God is within you (Luke 17:21; NKJV).

5. There is a spirit within people, the breath of the Almighty within them (Job 32:8; NLT).

You have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you (1 John 2:27; NLT).

Christ lives within you (Romans 8:10; NLT).

6. I am the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6; NLT).

  • I like this very much, Ruth. Sometimes I frantically search for God, whether it’s in another book, a website, outward signs … when all the time, if I slowed down and calmly reminded myself of the words in your prayer that God is with me internally and not just externally. Beautifully written.

    I hope you’re having a good day! :) xxx
