Song of the Week Wednesday- Like You Do- Angel Taylor

I love this video! its just fun and happy . I wish I had some guitar skills like her!

**disclaimer** Its just a song... I dont have anyone to be singing about so lets not get excited :)

Like you do- Angel Taylor

Boy you know it's bad when you do that

but you don't care

holding out exactly what I want

but you won't share

and I've never had a taste before

but now you've got me wanting more

You're playin' it cool, I know what you do

I feel like a fool, but I would be feelin' it anyway

cause nobody loves me

You're messin around, I figured you out

You're takin' me down, but I would be feelin it anyway, cause nobody loves me, like you do.

Mmm like you do

And boy you know it's wrong when you do that

but you go there (you take me there)

you could lead me on or hang me out

but don't you dare

and I've never had a taste before

but now you got me wanting more

You're playin' it cool, I know what you do

I feel like a fool, but I would be feelin' it anyway

cause nobody loves me

You're messin around, I figured you out

You're takin' me down, but I would be feelin' it anyway cause nobody loves me, like you do

like you do, like you do

Oh yeah

And boy you know it's bad when you do that

but you don't care

Song of the week Wednesday

My favorite song this week!

Time To Let Me Go

Every time I had a problem
Didn't know what I should do
Singing oh oh
I would run to you
You were there to guide me
Always there to pull me through
Singing oh oh
I would run to you
Run to you uuuu

But I'm
Tired of walking in your shadow
So by this time tomorrow
I'll be on a plane singing
I never meant to hurt you
You know how much I love you
I know you love me so
But it's time to let me go

I gotta learn to be myself
Won't happen if I stay
Singing oh oh
I gotta get away
We could talk it over
But there's nothing left to say
Singing oh oh
Gotta get away
Get away

But I'm
Tired of walking in your shadow
So by this time tomorrow
I'll be on a plane singing
I never meant to hurt you
You know how much I love you
I know you love me so
But it's time to let me go

To the Ends of the Earth... again....literally

Last may I said on my blog the lyrics to this song were powerful. I guess I had forgotten until last night.

We had our first band practice for out One Way/ D-now thing this weekend. We got to this song and I was like eh I don't want to do it, its too high.... blah blah blah. Then everyone else got there and Jordan was like come on sarah just do it.
Well while I was singing last night I remembered how much JOY I felt the first time we sang this song. This was the first song I sang in church..... During that time last year this song meant so much to me,  these lyrics were my prayer.
  So then I realized somethings and  I started crying... me cry? never I tried to laugh it off and cough so no one could tell, I didn't want to embarass myself ................anyhoo.......................

Here is what when down in my head as I was singing...

"Jesus I believe in you and I would to to the Ends of the Earth..."
Uhh God. I didn't realize you were listening last year. Ends of the earth... yeah I'm pretty sure Australia is way far out there! I'm not complaining... crap can they tell im totally not singing .. really dude you sure I need to go.....

"For you alone are the Son of God and all the world will see you are God..."
I know your the Son of God... yeah I know Australia is your will.... Ironic that this is a hillsong song..... I didn't know you'd take me seriously when I prayed that last year... once again I'm not complaing but ...oops totally messed up.... ok God I've got to sing now... I'm worshiping you and your distracting me.... right prolly not the right attitude to have.. yes sir......

"Jesus I believe in you and I would to to the Ends of the Earth..."
Wow I'm really moving to Australia. God you are so cool! I love you ...... Thank you so much for sending me to the Ends of the Earth to make you known.... woah fun drums, okay yeah I've got to tell Jordan this coincidence

 I know that you may not understand this post.... and you don't have to! I just needed to share how cool my God is. Last may singing that with Jordan at FUMC Hillsong College was just a silly dream in the back of my head... and now I'm headed there.

O Love That WIll Not Let Me Go!

 Thanks to Jesse's tweet I've been listening to the New Robbie Seay Band album all morning. I kept listening to this song on repeat... then did some research on it only to find out its an old hymn and the fabulous harmony is sung by Audrey Assad, one of my favorite people to listen to!

Click here to listen and read more about it!

Oh, love that will not let me go 
I rest me weary soul in Thee 
I give You back this life I owe 
And in Your ocean depths its flow
 May richer fuller be

Oh, light that follows all my way 
I yield my flickering torch to Thee  
And my heart restores its borrowed ray
And in Your sunshine’s blaze, its day 
May brighter, fairer be

Rejoice my heart
Rejoice my soul 
My Savior God has come to Thee 
Rejoice my heart 
You’ve been made whole 
By a love that will not let me go

Oh, joy that seeks me through the pain 
I cannot close my heart to Thee 
I chase the rainbow through the rain 
And feel the promise is not vain 
That more shall tearless be

Oh, cross that lifts and holds my head 
I dare not ask to fly from thee 
I lay in dust life’s glory dead 
From the ground, their blossoms red 
Life that shall endless be

How NOT to date a Loser!

Once upon a time I bought this book at Mardel for $1.00. Then I put it on the shelf with all the other books I need to read before I leave.

In light of everyone around me getting married and being in love I figured I'd read it!

It is certainly not what I expected. It talks alot about fears and issues in relationships and embracing your singleness because maybe God has more things in store for you.

I've thought about that a bunch lately. They get a big shiny ring, weddings, and babies and I get Australia.  Don't get me wrong,  I'm not saying my leaving is better than your wedding... God has been trying to teach me that everyone's paths are different and not to envy someone else's path. Everyone's gifts are different too. The mommy/wifey gene isn't in me right now.

 I know that God is saving me some heartache and pain by allowing me NOT to have someone. If I had a boyfriend I wouldn't go to Australia! The book talks about looking at past relationships and learning from them. I've learned that when I'm in Love I will give up everything for that person. I love WHOLEHEARTEDLY and that can be very dangerous for me if I'm not solid in who I am in the Lord, and if HE isn't a man of God.
After I read the first few chapters last night I  just sat and thought about how the Lord has been preparing me for my new adventure how and I haven't even realized it.I've been praying, really begging actually for God to send me my Husband.... He keeps telling me not yet, not yet, one day Sarah, he's not ready yet, keep being obedient, it doesn't matter if she has hers, and finally I realized its Me that's not ready to be a wife or a mom (which I talked about here).
God has been protecting me all along!

I wish I could stop trying to figure out His plans for me and just trust.

Its becoming real!

moms here!
We are cleaning out our lives this week. I'm excited to live junk free for awhile but I still wish I could take it all with me!

We found some adorable pictures from kindergarten yesterday, one of my friend corie and I made me cry. Corie and I only became true friends in high school. It was neat to look at that picture of us on the first day of school and know that God new that day all the blood sweat and tears we would go through together in the future!
Going through all the pics from my childhood-high school wasn't sad it was just different. 

I've been having trouble sleeping lately. I think my brain just wont shut off, I'm so excited about my adventure to Hillsong College i can't think straight lol!

Went to the bank yesterday- it became very real!

Do you ever just need a good laugh?

Lately I've been so overwhelmed all I have wanted to do it bust out into a good cry. I can't... Its crazy I always cry but I can't just let it out.

I've come to realize that I needed to laugh not cry. To let go and crack up and embarrass myself with the sounds coming out of my mouth.

This weekend was amazing. We were out on a tri-toon and we started hitting some waves and I just cracked up. If you know me very well you know I have some LOUD OBNOXIOUS laughs and they all came out! It was awesome! I felt the weight of everything come off my shoulders, I didn't need to cry. I needed to laugh!

Wednesdays are rough... there is so much going on around here and yesterday was just one of the days where you want to go home and cry... unfortunately I didn't have enough time. The girls at 180 always put a smile on my face but sometimes I can't get down to the "all I have to talk about is bad grades and boys " level! After Courtney ( who was having a bad day too) got there, I ran from 180 to praise team and got stopped. I thankfully got a warning.....
fast forward to after praise team I went back to 180 and the girls were cracking me up. They did an improv skit that had me rolling almost off the couch. Then a one of them said "His guitar is so hott I could bake cookies on it" at this point I lost it. just cracked up... once again I felt the weight of week just lift off me.

I'm so thankful that God places people in my life to make me laugh! I now understand why they say laughter is the best medicine!

Genesis 21:6
Sarah said, "God has brought me laughter, and everyone who hears about this will laugh with me."

How can I help?

I want to thank everyone for all of the support throughout this process. Many have asked “ How can I help or what can I do” All I can think of for now is pray! Here are some things to pray for…..

First of all my nerves, I’m so excited but terrified all at the same time! Matthew 6:25 says “do not worry…” I’m working on it J Pray for my family as they prepare for me to leave. Pray that the details for the house, bella, my car, everything else easily work themselves out! Finances- as you can imagine it’s not easy or cheap to move across the world for school! I’m struggling with knowing how to let God provide for me.
And Lastly pray for ME! That God would prepare my heart for this!
Here is a list of things I need …
