Lead Me....

The very first time I heard this song on the radio, I cried. And I cry almost every time I hear this song.

THIS is an amazing song by an amazing group. I passionately believe that part of the problem in churches today is that men don't take their responsibility to lead as they should.

Husbands and dad's need to lead their families in the way that the bible prescribes. I firmly believe that because so few men even realize how to be the leader God calls them to be. And sometimes I wonder if most men even care anymore at all what God is calling them to be....and that is just sad!

Here are the words to this amazing song that God has had on my mind this day.

Sanctus Real - “Lead Me”

I look around and see my wonderful life
Almost perfect from the outside
In picture frames I see my beautiful wife
Always smiling
But on the inside, I can hear her saying...

“Lead me with strong hands
Stand up when I can't
Don't leave me hungry for love
Chasing dreams, what about us?

Show me you're willing to fight
That I'm still the love of your life
I know we call this our home
But I still feel alone”

I see their faces, look in their innocent eyes
They're just children from the outside
I'm working hard, I tell myself they'll be fine
They're independent
But on the inside, I can hear them saying...

“Lead me with strong hands
Stand up when I can't
Don't leave me hungry for love
Chasing dreams, but what about us?

Show me you're willing to fight
That I'm still the love of your life
I know we call this our home
But I still feel alone”

So Father, give me the strength
To be everything I'm called to be
Oh, Father, show me the way
To lead them
Won't You lead me?

To lead them with strong hands
To stand up when they can't
Don't want to leave them hungry for love,
Chasing things that I could give up

I'll show them I'm willing to fight
And give them the best of my life
So we can call this our home
Lead me, 'cause I can't do this alone

Father, lead me, 'cause I can't do this alone



That's the catch. No one can be who God is calling them to be without his help. I see in this world a lot of adults who go to church for the wrong reasons. They aren't there to grow closer to God. They don't seem concerned with who it is God wants them to be.

I hope I'm wrong. But I don't think I am.

Wonder what it will take for there to be a real change in the hearts of men (and women) in churches these days to really want to know God and be who HE intends them to be......

What about you? Do you see this as a problem in the world or is it just me?
