Look for God

Look for God
In everything
That happens.

Look for God,
So you will know
Which way to turn.

Look for God,
To find out
What he’s teaching you.

Look for God,
To see what you
Must learn.

*************************

Keep on seeking, and you will find (Matthew 7:7; NLT).

Enjoy prosperity while you can, but when hard times strike, realise that both come from God. Remember that nothing is certain in this life (Ecclesiastes 7:14; NLT).

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it” (Isaiah 30:21; NIV).

Travel steadily along his path (Psalm 37:34; NLT).

When your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow (James 1:3; NLT).

Look, listen, learn

“Keep on seeking, and you will find” (Matthew 7:7; NLT).

“This is my dearly loved Son. Listen to him!” (Mark 9:7; NLT).

Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him (Colossians 3:10; NLT).

But we know that there is only one God, the Father, who created everything, and we live for him (1 Corinthians 8:6; NLT).


Lord,
May I look for you,
Listen to you,
Learn from you,
And live for you
Each day.

Through Jesus’ name,
Amen.

Keep on seeking

“Keep on seeking, and you will find” (Matthew 7:7; NLT).


Lord,
Whatever happens,
Please help me
To keep on seeking you afresh
Each day.

I’ve looked for you
As a Catholic,
A Methodist,
And a Baptist.

I’ve searched for you
As an Anglican,
A Quaker,
And a Buddhist.

I’ve tried to find you
As a hedge-witch,
A Community novice,
And a contemplative.

Thank you, Lord,
For all the mistakes I’ve made,
And for everything
I’ve learned throughout my life.

Whatever happens,
Please help me
To keep on seeking you afresh
Each day.

In Jesus’ name,
Amen.

The door

The door

Remember the LORD (Jeremiah 51:50; NLT).

Jesus replied, “ ‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all you mind’ ” (Matthew 22:37; NLT).

“Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends” (Rev 3:20; NLT).

The LORD remembers us and will bless us (Psalm 115:12; NLT).


Father,
The moment I remember you,
And open the door of my mind
To invite you in,
I find you waiting patiently outside
To greet me.

Jesus,
The moment I remember you,
And open the door of my heart
To invite you in,
I find you waiting patiently outside
To help me.

Spirit,
The moment I remember you,
And open the door of my soul
To invite you in,
I find you waiting patiently outside
To bless me.
