This is the stuff...that drives me crazy!

Ever had one of those days:

Your daughter loses all your colored pencils at the park the day before.

Your 2 year old has a crying fit at someone elses' house.

Your 8 year old has a crying fit at someone elses' house.

Lunch is late, cranky 2 year old again.

Your dog throws up on the floor.

Your feelings of self worth are through the floor.

You feel like having a crying fit at your own house.

You feel guilty because your life is so much better than a whole lot of people in Alabama right now, but you just can't shake your mood.

You take everything wrong.

You are still waiting for your tax return you filed over 2 months ago being held up due to processing delays...you are tired of stressing about it and talking about it and stressing about it.

You just can't seem to let it all go.


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've gotta trust
You know exactly what Your doing
Might not be what I would choose
But this is the stuff You use.



-Francesca Battistelli




Lord, help me rise above my pettiness and weakness and see opportunities to serve others and love You more. Help me let go of the bad stuff and trust You to work in all things for my good!


Amen.



"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."

2 Corinthians 12:9
