Search for You

READ: PSALMS 9:10; 63:1-8; ACTS 17:27

When I search for You 

You’re not hard to find 

When I need a friend

You are always kind

When I ask for help

You are always there

Whenever I’m in a mess

You still show me You care

When others do me harm

You hold and comfort me

In the times I feel alone

By my side, You’ll be

When I need my Savior

I simply call to You

You always come to me

And help me with all I do • Bethany Acker

• Have you ever felt God’s nearness, like a close friend? What was it like? If you haven’t experienced this, you can ask God to show you His love and nearness anytime.

• God invites us to come to Him with all our needs, but sometimes, it can be hard to ask God for help when we need it. If you struggle to be vulnerable with God like this, who are some trusted Christians you can talk to about it, such as parents, counselors, pastors, or friends?

• This poem mentions that sometimes others harm us. If you’ve experienced harm and want someone to talk to, you can speak to a counselor anytime by setting up an appointment for a one-time complimentary phone consultation with a Christian counselor through the Focus on the Family Counseling Service. In the United States, call 1-855-771-HELP (4357) weekdays 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. (Mountain Time) to set up an appointment. In Canada, book your appointment by calling 1-800-661-9800 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. (Pacific Time) and ask to speak with the care associate.

Those who know your name trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you. Psalm 9:10 (NIV)
