Don't Leave Me...Hungry for Love...


Hello again! Can't wait to share with you today! I just found this band via Twitter ~ yah, love Twitter. Doesn't suck up all the time Facebook does, it's short, sweet, and you move on after 140 characters or less. It's hands-down the best 'stalk-me' social-network out there, my humble opinion, anyway.


So, back to this group, a band you probably already know and love, but I'm pretty behind on the music scene, LOL. Sanctus Real sounded like a punk band to me, but I thought I'd lend them an ear for at least 30 seconds, after having a Twitter 'follower' named Hungry for Love follow me, then they tweeted about the band. 


Sanctus Real - Lead Me

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
Have a wonderful week, everyone!

Great lyrics. Something I've been thinking about as I'm preparing to speak to a group of young mothers at church. I've been asked to address the topic of How To Raise Christian children when Your Husband Won't Lead. Definitely a challenging topic to prepare.

Thanks for sharing,

Isn't it a wonderful heart for a father and husband to have? And to look to Christ to lead him in his family?

I know you'll bless many woman, AJ, many families. I can't imagine addressing that subject to them--the frustrations and heavy hearts that will be there, but the hope you'll offer through Christ will bind wounds.

Lord bless your speaking as you point those precious hearts to Christ.

Great Post! ...And great band. :)

I laughed for about 17 seconds at this line:

"what kind of perv am I going to find by the name of Hungry for Love"

Haha. So funny...
