Two Songs.




[image: Reaching by Dzires]

My College of the Ozarks interview is today. I was spazzing out last night. I couldn't sleep. I went through every possible question they could ask me, and every possible answer I could give them to those questions. I was literally shaking. I was so so nervous that I was sweating. I had to remind myself, and so did a few of my friends, that whatever is meant to be will happen. If I just go in there and be myself, I will blow them away. One of my friends told me that I can't allow fear in my mind, I have to be confident in myself.

This morning I woke up with a song in my head. The perfect song. (Thank you, God!) As I've said before, music is the ultimate relator. There is a song for anything and everything you could possibly be facing.

As the morning goes on, another song comes to mind. I would like to share these two songs with you, if you don't mind.

<>Song numero uno:

I Believe by Yolanda Adams

They said you wouldn't make it so far
And ever since they've said it its been hard
But never mind that night you had to cry
'Cause you had never let it go inside
You worked real hard and you know exactly what you want and need
So believe
And you can never give up
You can reach your goals
Just talk to your soul and say
I believe I can
I believe I will
I believe I know my dreams are real
I believe I'll stand
I believe I'll dance
I believe I'll grow real soon and
That is what I do believe
Your goals are just a thing in your soul
And you know that your moves will let them show
You keep creating pictures in your mind
So just believe they will come true in time
It will be fine leave all of your cares and stress behind and
Just let it go
Let the music flow inside, forget all your pain
And just start to believe
Never mind what people say
Hold your head high and turn away
With all my hopes and dreams I will believe
Even though it seems it's not for me
I won't give up, I'll keep it up
Looking to the sky
I will achieve all my needs
I will always believe


<>Song numero dos:


Closer by Goapele

Closer to my dreams
It's coming over me
I'm gettin' higher
Closer to my dreams
I'm getting higher and higher
Feel it in my sleep
Sometimes it feels like I'll never go past here
Sometimes it feels like I'm stuck forever and ever
But, I'm going higher
Closer to my dreams
I'm goin' higher and higher
I can almost reach
Sometimes you just have to let it go
Leaving all my fears to burn down
Push them all away so I can move on
Closer to my dreams
Feel it all over my being
Close your eyes and see what you believe
I'm happy as long as we're apart
Then I'm moving on to my dreams
I'll be moving higher
Closer to my dreams
And higher and higher, higher
Feel it in my being (I can feel it flow around me)
I know that I could not go alone
I'm moving higher
I'm going higher and higher and higher
Closer to my dreams
I'm moving upward and onward and beyond all I can see
(Stretching out my arms so I can reach)
Feels so close it's like I can just reach
I can feel my dreams (Closer to my dreams)
I'm moving closer to my dreams
I'm moving
Sometimes it feels like you never gon' change
But you never choose to walk away



[[Dear Jesus, Please help me do my best today. If this is where you're wanting me to go, please allow it to happen. Let your light shine through me. Allow me to show them who I am. Please calm my nerves and not let them show. Walk with me. Guide me. I love you. In your name I pray, Amen.]]
