song for your tuesday.

i have lots of blogs in my draft folder... beginnings of thoughts unfinished. i'm going to finish and post them all. someday. maybe.

for now, they are lost in the mix of this part time job, my two small children and eighteen credit hours of college i'm taking this semester. so for now, here is a song for your tuesday.

and for now, this is my prayer for this tuesdsay: Father, lead me. lead me through this season of my life that i never anticpated... as a single mother. as a college student. lead me. as a friend. as a sister. lead me. on this narrow path home, 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.
