Even though Sanctus Real‘s lead singer Matt is singing from a father’s perspective, his song inspires me just as much as a mother, wife and daughter of God. I am so broken — and this song brings me to my knees.
I always wondered about the story behind Lead Me. Was Matt’s marriage the inspiration behind his words? How does his wife feel about the song? Where are they now?
I searched on You Tube to watch Sanctus Real’s Lead Me video and found this behind the scenes video where Matt and his wife share the real story behind the song, Lead Me.
I hope these videos are a blessing to you as well. Life is hard. And it brings us all to our knees eventually.
I love Sanctus Real’s music and ministry because they are “real.” They sing from the broken places, the shadows that many Christians never want to admit exist in their lives. That truth is what I need in my life. I can’t stand “perfect.” I don’t know about you, but I will never pretend my life is anything close to “perfect.”
When I was reading Sanctus Real’s blog, I was surprised to read the bass player Dan sharing openly about his divorce and the painful struggles with spiritual and emotional healing. (On his own blog, Dan shares the story of his divorce.)
If you are also need some “real” in your worship and healing, check out Sanctus Real.
And God Bless You!
