Lead Me

To all guys out there, may you realize your calling and may this be your prayer. :)

Father, give me the strength to be everything I am called to be.
Oh, Father, show me the way to lead them. Won't you lead me?




Lead Me
by Sanctus Real

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, 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 am 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 dreams 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 out home
Lead me, 'cause I can't do this alone

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

The song is by Matt of Sanctus Real. He wrote this for his wife and his kids after their family had a struggle.

Guys really do have a huge responsibility and they have lots of accountabilities to God. They are accountable for their own actions, their family, his wife and their kids. It is a man's task (among many others) to make them feel loved, to care for them, provide for them, and more importantly, to lead them into the Lord.

These are really impossible tasks and there's no way any man can do it. But with God, all things are possible. It's overwhelming, but God promises to enable and empower his children.

As for us girls and kids, let's pray and support our husband/brothers/friends so that they may fulfill their calling! :)


Here's a video of them telling their story. Watch it, guys! You'll be really blessed.. :)
