Lead Me, Cause I Can't Do This Alone

Though this video is from a man's perspective, I think women can apply it to their lives, too.  We all need to put our trust in Jesus- to ask Him to lead us and guide us through every situation we face because we all can feel alone sometimes and uncertain of our direction-especially in our roles of spouses and parents.  We have a big responsibility to fulfill and sometimes we feel helpless on how to do it well.  What to do when things don't go the way we planned.  But if we put our trust in Him, and keep our minds stayed on Him, He will lead us and keep us through the uncertainties of life. He will give us wisdom and direction on how He wants us to live.  He will be the potter who can mold us and shape us into His image, putting the past behind and creating us anew.  But only through Him, we can't do it on our own, we need Him.  We need Him to lead us in His ways.  Just lead me oh, Lord.

  1. I found a nice poem to compliment your blog:


    "So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him." (Deut. 32:12).

    "The hill was steep, but cheered along the way
    By converse sweet, I mounted on the thought
    That so it might be till the height was reached;

    But suddenly a narrow winding path
    Appeared, and then the Master said, 'My child,
    Here thou wilt safest walk with Me alone.'

    "I trembled, yet my heart's deep trust replied,
    'So be it, Lord.' He took my feeble hand
    In His, accepting thus my will to yield Him
    All, and to find all in Him.
    One long, dark moment,
    And no friend I saw, save Jesus only.

    "But oh! so tenderly He led me on
    And up, and spoke to me such words of cheer,
    Such secret whisperings of His wondrous love,
    That soon I told Him all my grief and fear,
    And leaned on His strong arm confidingly.

    "And then I found my footsteps quickened,
    And light ineffable, the rugged way
    Illumined, such light as only can be seen
    In close companionship with God.

    "A little while, and we shall meet again
    The loved and lost; but in the rapturous joy
    Of greetings, such as here we cannot know,
    And happy song, and heavenly embraces,
    And tender recollections rushing back
    Of pilgrim life, methinks one memory
    More dear and sacred than the rest, shall rise,
    "And we who gather in the golden streets,
    Shall oft be stirred to speak with grateful love

    Of that dark day when Jesus bade us climb
    Some narrow steep, leaning on Him alone."
    "There is no high hill but beside some deep valley.
    There is no birth without a pang."
