No Longer Looking for More

Hello All,

Are you looking for something? Are you searching for someone?

Are you hoping for something? Are you yearning for someone?

In this life, we are constantly yearning for something or someone that will satisfy the longings of our hearts. ‘There must be more to life than this,’ we often whisper to ourselves.



No Longer Looking for More
By Joanne Liaw Sook Ling

No longer looking for more
I've found Someone to adore
No longer unsatisfied
For me, Christ was crucified

No longer looking for more
My Lord Jesus, I adore
No longer looking for gold
In Christ are treasures untold

No longer looking for more
Jesus, my King, I adore
No longer looking for fame
For God has called me by name

No longer looking for more
Christ, my Saviour, I adore
No longer looking for praise
I boast in Him who was raised

No longer looking for more
Christ is the One I adore
No longer striving for love
Divine love comes from above


Points for Reflection:
“Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
(John 4:13-14 ESV)
·         In Christian gatherings, we often sing songs that speak of the sufficiency of Christ. ‘Christ is Enough for Me’ is one of those songs.
·         If we are honest with ourselves, we are often looking for satisfaction somewhere else apart from Christ. Those places may not be bad and may, in fact, be good gifts from God. But attempting to derive ultimate fulfilment from them leads to disappointments and disillusionment.
·         When God withholds something or someone that we are yearning so badly for, it is very natural to ask Him, ‘Why?’ God’s ways are higher than ours and we may never know the reasons He is withholding those things from us. However, one of the possible reasons is that He wants us to find ultimate fulfilment in Him and not in those things. He wants us to delight in Him.
·         Are you delighting in Christ? Drink from the well of His living Word. Grow in your knowledge of Him. And not just knowledge, but abound in your love for Him.
