LoveMusic! Love For His People – Chicago – “(I’VE BEEN) SEARCHING SO LONG” with Lyrics

In 1974, when I was just out of high school, the rock band Chicago came out with a song entitled “(I’ve Been) Searching So Long”. It became a very “instrumental song” the Lord used that year in my life and for some time beyond. 

It helped in my search for the Lord’s will in my life. (Yes, the Lord used a secular song!)

Don’t you have a special movie, song, or book that wouldn’t be classified as “religious, holy, or even Christian”, but you know the Lord Jesus used it to do something He wanted done in your life. It probably drew you closer to Him.

The Lord God Almighty can, and will use many things in our life to reveal Himself to us. He does it all the time with those “of the world”, especially through movies (yes, Hollywood movies), because His love is that strong for the lost, and especially for you and I.

If you have not heard the song before, listen to the lyrics (or read them as provided.) Maybe you too have been searching, and the Lord will use this to speak to your heart.
