Faithful Friday: Stuff

16 August 2013

I had a totally different post scheduled for today but I met a new blogger, Aimee. After falling in love with her blogs I  followed her on instagram and saw that she has been listening to an artist by the name of Francesca Battistilli. I promptly looked her up on Spotify and discovered that she was another Christian artist so I just let her music play. The fourth song was called "Stuff". This song talks about how so many things drive us absolutely batty - losing our keys or phone, getting a speeding ticket, or being late for something important.

I realized that those things are just icing on the cake many of us are dealing with bigger, harder, and more pressing issues. But to God - the King, the Creator, and the Father all our problems are just stuff. These moments of frustration and angst do get under our skin, they do make us emotional but at the end of the day we have to trust that God's plan is supreme.



Honestly I really needed to hear that song today and I don't know if you did too. I urge you to compare the problems in your life to the good things in your life - I promise you will feel blessed. Seriously all of our problems are just "stuff", but they do serve a purpose in bringer us closer to God. Just like a kid whose fallen on the playground cries out for their parent - our "stuff" makes us cry out to God. If everything went smoothly when else would we run to Him? 

I won't ramble on but think on all the "stuff" in your life and consider how it can help you to get closer to our loving Father. I have put the lyrics and YouTube video of the song down below. I hope you love it as much as I did. 

Is there a song that speaks to you in particularly rough times? I would love for you to share it with me below.



I lost my keys in the great unknown
And call me please 'cause 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've gotta trust You know exactly what You're doing 
Might not be what I would choose 
But this the stuff You use

45 in a 35 sirens and fines
While I'm running behind
Whoa ho ho

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 You're doing 
Might not be what I would choose 
But this 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
Whoa ho ho ho

Oooooh 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 You're doing 
Might not be what I would choose 
But this the stuff You use

Whoa whoa ho ho
This is the stuff You use.

  1. I love Francesca Battistilli!

    This song, and your post, are right on. It's so comforting to know that all things in life, even our "stuff" which is typically viewed by us as negative, can bring us closer to God. "This is the stuff You use." That's so eye opening!

  2. What a great post! oftentimes, we get so caught up in the worldly stressers so much that we loose sight that its all small stuff! I also like Francesca! But, I'd have to say my go-to song is Oh how He loves us. Something about that song just tugs at the heart strings and reminds me He is all we need!
    Thank you for this post! And I hope I've corrected the no-reply thing!!

    Have a great day!!

  3. Sure changes your perspective on the "stuff" doesn't it? When you think that God is using that stuff for his purpose, it changes everything. I listen to this song almost every day! I'm so glad that you like her!! And I'm so glad to have "met" you! xo

  4. I love this song and love Francesca Battistelli. She's pretty great. Another song that has really spoken to me is "Steady My Heart" by Kari Jobe. That's a good one, too.

  7. I love that song! It was really big on KSBJ (Texan Christian radio station), and just in general all of her songs are amazing. One of my favorites that gets me every time is "Lead me to the cross" I cry pretty much every time I hear it.
