Lead me….Guide me…

I find that often I sit in Church and am struck by how appropriate the song words, the reading or the preaching are to my life. I think about how I will reflect on the words all week and I am excited to see what else God has for me….each Sunday when I sit in the pew….

And then I walk out of Church and I start to move into my week…and often I don’t return to my thoughts as I had planned or hoped….

It happened again this morning….the words to the song My Shepherd will supply my need and Lead Me, Guide Me….

Today Pastor Jim had an excellent teaching about fear being a critical element in faith. Pastor Jim invited us to lean back and trust God and if leaning back into God’s hold was to much, we could begin by leaning into our doubts…

So many thoughts…

So many truths….

So many invitations…

It is my hope that this week is different. I want to reflect more on what I feel stirred by today. I wonder if any of you have been stirred by your Sunday happenings. I believe God speaks in Church, BUT not only in Church….I would love to know what you hope to hang onto and reflect on this week….

But let me leave you with the words to one of my favorite hymns….

Lead Me Guide Me
Verse 1:
I am weak and I need your strength and power
To help  me o–ver his weakest hour
Lead me through the darkness your face to see
Lead me Oh Lord, lead me…..

Lead me, guide me along the way,
For if you lead me I cannot stray.
Lord let me walk each day with Thee.
Lead me, oh Lord lead me.

VERSE 2:
Help me tread in the paths of righteousness.
Be my aid when Satan and sin oppress.
I am putting all my trust in Thee:
Lead me, oh Lord lead me.

Chorus
Lead me, guide me along the way,
For if you lead me I cannot stray.
Lord let me walk each day with Thee.
Lead me, oh Lord lead me.

I am lost if you take your hand from me,
I am blind without Thy light to see.
Lord just always to me thy servant be,
Lead me, oh Lord lead me.

Chorus
Lead me, guide me along the way,
For if you lead me I cannot stray.
Lord let me walk each day with Thee.
Lead me, oh Lord lead me.
