Today's featured artists are the band Sanctus Real. I was introduced to them through Mocha Club. I do some volunteering for Mocha Club every now and then and it just so happens Sanctus Real has been one of the sponsoring artists at both events.
This fall at their show, out of all the songs they performed from their new album,
my heart did a double take when the lead singer, Matt Hammitt, introduced the song "Lead Me." His vulnerability and courage were refreshing as he shared about his own struggles and sin as a husband and father. He modeled true strength as he openly confessed his weakness and told a story so many relate with.
Music not only transports us and articulates the human soul in a way few things can but it has the ability to call something greater forth in us....Sanctus Real did this with "Lead Me."
What I love about the song is the picture it paints of a wife's tender strength in calling her husband out of hiding believing he has what it takes to lead her and the family.
Lovely and powerful!
Listen in and enjoy. Have a great Friday! (I'll paste the lyrics below).
