Sticky Hands: This Is The Stuff

Sticky Hands: This Is The Stuff

So we all have days where every little thing makes us crazy and as the day goes on, things just get worse.

Whoever said that spilled milk wasn't worth crying over was wrong.

You’re running late and you have a million things on your to-do list, not to mention you need to call Sis. So-n-so to tell her you missed her at church last week and you need to run by the Post Office to mail in a bill and your gas light’s on cause your car’s on empty and you only have about $10 in your bank account so you might be able to get 1/500th of a tank with that $10 considering today’s gas prices and you have no idea what to cook for supper, your 2-year-old is pulling your hair, you have on 2 different shoes, you forgot to brush your teeth and you can’t remember the last time you washed your hair.

Overwhelmed yet? Cause there’s a whole lot of times that I’m overwhelmed and I know that I’m not alone. I came across a song the other day called This Is the Stuff by Francesca Battistelli that pretty much summed up my everyday life (and I’m sure yours, too). I wanted to post her song along with the lyrics and encourage all of you (this includes me) to stop and remember how big we’re blessed and thank God for everything He’s done for us. Of course we always thank Him for the big and major things, but what about the little things, too? If we can go crazy over little things like running a few minutes behind and this and that, then we should be able to thank God for the little simple things He does for us day to day. For example, waking us up in the morning, giving us the green light on our way to work, allowing us to have the extra $1 for a McDonald’s sweet tea (oh yeah!), and a bed to lay down in each night.

In the middle of your little mess, don’t forget how big your blessed. 🙂

Lyrics to This Is The Stuff :
I lost my keys in the great unknown
And call me please ‘Cuz I can’t find my phone

This is the stuff that drives me crazy
This is the stuff that’s getting to me lately
In the middle of my little mess
I forget how big I’m blessed
This is the stuff that gets under my skin
But I gotta trust You know exactly what You’re doing
It might not be what I would choose
But this is the stuff You use

45 in a 35
Sirens and fines while I’m running behind
Whoa

This is the stuff that drives me crazy
This is the stuff that’s getting to me lately
In the middle of my little mess
I forget how big I’m blessed
This is the stuff that gets under my skin
But I gotta trust You know exactly what You’re doing
It might not be what I would choose
But this is the stuff You use

So break me of impatience
Conquer my frustrations
I’ve got a new appreciation
It’s not the end of the world
Oh Oh Oh

This is the stuff that drives me crazy
This is the stuff
Someone save me
In the middle of my little mess
I forget how big I’m blessed
This is the stuff that gets under my skin
And I’ve gotta trust You know exactly what You’re doing
It might not be what I would choose
But this is the stuff You use
