Wednesday Worship: Lead Me To The Cross

“There is only one place where we can receive, not an answer to our questions, but peace–that place is Calvary. An hour at the foot of the Cross steadies the soul as nothing else can. ‘O Christ Beloved, Thy Calvary stills all our questions.’ Love that loves like that can be trusted about this.”
~Amy Carmichael, Rose From Brier

As I prayed last night for God to show Himself more and more in my life, I realized I was looking in the wrong place. I keep looking at myself, focusing on my feelings, my sins, my triumphs. I base my responses, my victories, my struggles on myself and how God is working in me. And if I fail, then God must not be working, because I can’t see Him. Once again I was convicted… it’s not about me!

If I want to see God more and more in my life, there is only one place I need to look. If I want the Evil One to run, there is only one place I need to look. If I want victory, there is only one place I need to look. If I do any good thing, it is because of the one place I can look.

I long to live daily at the cross.

To gaze at His work and find rest from my own.

To let go of my failing and guilt and find peace.

To conquer evil daily.

It’s there.

At the Cross.

And so every time I pray, I ask Him.

“Lead me to the Cross.” Widgets

Song: Lead Me To The Cross
Artist: Hillsong United
Album: All Of The Above

Savior I come
Quiet my soul remember
Redemptions hill
Where Your blood was spilled
For my ransom
Everything I once held dear
I count it all as lost

Lead me to the cross
Where Your love poured out
Bring me to my knees
Lord I lay me down
Rid me of myself
I belong to You
Lead me, lead me to the cross

You were as I
Tempted and trialed
You are
The word became flesh
Bore my sin and death
Now you’re risen

To your heart
To your heart
Lead me to your heart
Lead me to your heart

  1. I can relate to this more than I can say. I look to myself, my behavior, my failure, my…all too often. And then I really can’t see God.

    I needed this today. Thank you, friend.


  2. One of my favorite chapters and quotes from “Rose from Brier”! Sitting still at the foot of the cross with you tonight. I love you dearly.
