Ladies, hold out for a man who makes this his prayer

9 Jun

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

Oh, 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, 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

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

Oh, 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’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

(Lead Me – Sanctus Real)

    Jen, I have heard this put to music. It is beautiful. and yes when you have a man who is praying, who you know you will see in heaven that is the most important thing! I know I prayed 20yrs to be sure and it was worth it! He is the sweetest, dearest man I know.He didn’t sign up for what he’s got w/me, but he has been incredibly patient, understanding, supportive-whatever I have needed. I thank God in Heaven everyday for him. There isn’t anything he doesn’t do for me in taking care of me, our home, our laundry, grocery shopping-he’s better at it than I;he shops the sales, uses the coupons-and then he cooks!
    and the more he does the better he gets!. Thank God for him. because I couldn’t do all that and work too. and his heart is really too damaged to work full time-so God has blessed me with what I do and made a ministry out of it.! by the way did you get an award notice? ck my last post

      How blessed you are to have such a husband! My parents have been married for 26 years and my dad still pursues my mom…it’s beautiful. Because he is such a godly father, he is also the perfect future husband model for me. He is such a leader and his wisdom comes from above. I am so so so thankful for him, especially because I know how rare that kind of dad is.
