I Need You

New song!!

I Need You
by Sarah Huntley

Verse 1
My heart is broken and it is all torn up
Life throws what it can at me until I've had enough
But Jesus said, “Come to me and I will give you rest.”
So Father I pray, help me find your strength.

I need You, need You all the way
The path is really long, help me to stay strong
I need you, need you all the time
Don't let me waste one more minute
Without You by my side

Verse 2
People talk and stare at what I've become
They see a woman with lots of hope and big dreams
The would say, “Get up and go and live life your way.”
But Jesus says “Be still and know that I am God.”

I need You, need You all the way
The path is really long, help me to stay strong
I need you, need you all the time
Don't let me waste one more minute
Without You by my side

My side---- I need You every minute, every second of the day
Put your arms around me, say it'll be okay
I know that You love me, your grace abounds so deep
Still in the midst of it all, then when all is said and done...

I need You, need You all the way
The path is really long, help me to stay strong
I need you, need you all the time
Don't let me waste one more minute
Without You by my side

Appreciate the Single Status

I may not like being single, but I'm learning to appreciate it. Life must go on right? So whether or not you have a husband or wife, you learn to live with it. Paul said it himself, he would rather people, especially Christians, be as he was. Now, let's face it...most people have a desire to marry. However, when you're single you have no one to answer to, but God. You can do anything, go anywhere, and life is simple. This just hit me the other day, appreciate your life. God knows what He's doing. He does not need our help. 

The time came when I'm tired of looking; tired of trying. So why not? Do what you want to do. Go where you want to go. Have all the time you need for God. No distractions of a spouse or family. Then when His timing is perfect, that special man or that special woman will come.

A letter I wrote

This is a letter that I just wrote for my future husband. Normally, I would keep these things private, but I wanted to share with you. Here goes:

My Beloved Husband, 

This letter might seem a little different than most, especially with how it begins. Most of my letters to you I try to write as if I already know you. However, tonight is not in that mind set. Also, you'll notice no dates on any of my letters to you, but for today I'll let you know the date and time of writing this to you.

Waiting for you is not easy. The older I get I wonder if marriage is even in God's plan for my life. How could it not be? To get married is a big dream of mine. For some reason, I really feel that you'll soon be revealed to me. The desire to know you is so strong and so very real. I keep wanting and waiting on God to let me dream about you when I'm asleep. I'm trying to allow my days not to be where I dwell on the subject, but some days I just can't help it. Sometime I cry; I'll cry myself to sleep. I'll lay in my bed and wonder to myself "when?" There are some times when I seriously think that you are already in my life. If only I knew. However, I know God has it planned. It will happen in His timing.

Here are a few things I want:
I want us to pray together.
I want us to worship and praise together.
I want us to minister together.
I want us to grocery shop together.
I want us to take trips together.
I want us to family up with many children.
I want us to sing together.
I want us to share intimate secrets together.

I don't want to sleep alone anymore. Please come to me soon.
This is written in hopes that you are thinking about me just as much as I think about you.
Know this who ever you are, I LOVE YOU!!

One Desire

My goal is not to sound like a broken record, but I apologize in advance if I do. I speak on behalf of anyone who is waiting. There is always one thing that we so desperately desire; one thing that we can not take our hearts and minds off. No matter what we try to do or what we try to accomplish, that one desire is only still a desire. My question: When God? When will your timing come to pass? God you know our heart. You know that we are not in a relationship with you because we want things...all we want is you...all I want is you.

It is really discouraging though when it seems people all around us are being blessed and getting things that they desire from you. People have their spouse; they have kids; they have their dream job along with maybe a dream income... How many tears will we have to cry? How many more nights do we only dream?

I've been asking what more do you want? God we want to trust you in this department...we do trust you, just sometimes we wonder if that is a path or the path you want us to take at all in our walk with you. So what do you want? We already do our our best at the "basics". We really are trying to please you God. We all love you very much. We would never dream of taking you for granted and/or taking advantage of you. I know that you hear us all.

You have our best interest in your heart. You are our Father. Just like a father, You want the very best for your children.

I love you Daddy God!
