30 Day Challenge 2 : Day 5

A song to match your mood

I'm in a good mood today, so I'll pick a good song. There is a song that was released not that long ago that really stuck out to me and made me think. The song is "This is the Stuff" by  Francesca Battistelli. She has several songs out that have struck a cord with me, but this one came out just when I needed it. It's a good reminder for me that ultimately, I am not the one in charge of my life. Someone else has a plan for me, and even if I cannot see that plan, nor am I sure I even know that plan, I need to trust that God knows what he is doing. The first time I heard the song was a day that I really needed it. 


(It's not the best video, but you can at least hear the song.)

I lost my keys in the great unknown
And call me please
Cause I can't find my phone

(CHORUS)
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

45 in a 35
Sirens and fines
While I'm running behind

(CHORUS)

To break me of impatience
Conquer my frustrations
I've got a new appreciation
It's not the end of the world...

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
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
