“God, I Need You Now” by Joan Y. Edwards
I searched the internet for songs to uplift you and me to never give up, to keep on going, knowing that God is there with us. In this post, the blue is what you might say to God. The purple is what God would definitely say to you. I put links to seven of the songs and their lyrics to give inspiration, encouragement, and peace to you. Because of copyright, I only put a few of the words to the lyrics so that you’d get the main emphasis of the song. But there is a link to the complete lyrics for each song. You might want to click on the lyrics link first, and then click on the song. That way you can sing along.
If you don’t have time to listen to each of the songs now. Please come back and listen another time.
- Where are you, God? I need you now.
“The Bible says in Matthew 7:7-8 Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.”
I’ve started out searching for you, Lord. But, I still haven’t found what I’m looking for.

I have climbed the highest mountain.
But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for.
2. Rejoice in the Lord, always.
The Bible says in Philippians 4:4-7 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
I offer thee, God my prayer and supplication. I praise you. Bless the Lord, Oh my Soul.
Song: Bless the Lord, Oh my Soul (Matt Redman)

Bless the Lord, O my soul.
O my soul.
Worship His Holy name.
3. Be thankful.
There are many things I am thankful for. I am thankful for you, Lord, God, king of our universe. I thank you, Lord for my family and those I meet on my life’s journey. When I am thankful and focus on the things I am thankful for, you give me more of these things. I am thankful for the abundance of all I need.

How many times have you heard me cry out
“God please take this?”
How many times have you given me strength to
Just keep breathing?
Oh, I need you.
God, I need you now.
5. God says to you and me: “HOLD ON.”

You got to hold on…
Hey, you got to hold on…
6. God says, “You’re an OVERCOMER.”
Song: You’re an Overcomer (Mandisa)

Whatever it is you may be going through
I know He’s not gonna let it get the best of you
You’re an Overcomer.
7. I am at peace. You, my God, are with me.
In the Bible at 1 Thessalonians 5:23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I know now. When I keep saying: All is well with my body, my mind, and my soul, it becomes that way. God, your peace is with my body, mind, and spirit. Thank you. It is especially comforting to know that all is well with my soul.
I am so thankful that ALL IS WELL WITH MY SOUL
It Is Well with My Soul (Wintley Phipps)
Horatio G. Spafford, 1873 Copyright: Public Domain
When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.
It is well, it is well,
With my soul, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.
