"Lead Me"

God has really been doing a number on my heart about what does a Godly family really look like?  Are we one?  Some days we are, and other days, we fail miserably.  I feel challenged daily to show Molly and eventually Lucy, too, what a Godly woman looks like, and more importantly what God commands of our hearts, souls, and minds.  My friend, Courtney, blogged about this topic the other day too, so I know I am not the only one feeling this way.

I absolutely love, love, love this song from Sanctus Real.  They are one of my favorite all time bands...and it doesn't hurt that they are from Ohio!  In their song "Lead Me" they talk about a wife's prayer to her husband to lead her, a child's prayer to their father to lead them, and then a husband/daddy's prayer to God to lead him.  You can see the story behind the song on their website.

This has been on my mind lately too, Kate. God has been showing me that my calling right now is not to go out and save the world, but it is to be the best mom and wife I can be for our family. It's something I've been thinking alot about.

As we draw closer to God He certainly does direct us, "lead us" and teach us. And we are never too old to learn...even I am continually experiencing new direction and blessings in my life at nearly 60.

I have been praying that God will bring people across my path that I can share Jesus with..and Boom, out of nowhere comes a nephew I hadn't seen in over 30 years! It was a blessing for me to be able to show Christ's love to him.

I want to be a better wife, and mother and grandma and friend, as well as Christ's disciple too. And praying to do those things with a sweet and gentle spirit.

You are such a sweet Christian wife, mommy, and daughter of Christ. It excites me to see your desires to be the best one possible. Like Kristin said, this is your "calling right now. (:>)

Blessings!

This has been on my heart for days on end...and God has constantly brought this song...and Matthew West's Going Through the Motions...to my mind. It is such a battle in our hearts to FEEL like we are doing a good job at wife and mom when the world tells us we should be doing this or earning that.
I do not have any golden answers, but I HAVE found that, for me, the days where I have spent time with Him, sought Him, journaled, and read His Word...those are the days that the peace that surpasses understanding is stronger than the other lies we tend to believe! Novel idea, huh? But one that I tend to not do when life gets "busy." We are too busy not to!!
Love your blog.
Blessings,
Amanda

I think about that often too. It has been weighing on my heart so much lately. We have such a huge responsibility as parents to teach and guide our children...it is not anyone else's job. I was just praying about that tonight at church.

I love this song too. I think it really speaks to the men to step up and be a leader of the home and to set a good example for the rest of the family. I think wives can learn a lot from this song too.

I love this song and have never heard it before, so thanks for sharing.

There is so much to think about concerning our kids and being good leaders. Esp now that they're getting older and see/hear everything we say and do. I'm praying that the Lord will show us how to be the parents he wants us to be!
