This is my new favorite song

I heard this song on KLTY this morning. It so speaks to my life and where I am right now, and it's my new favorite. It's called "This is the Stuff", by Francesca Battistelli.



Here are the lyrics, in case you couldn't quite make them out in the song:

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

Oh Oh Oh Oh
This is the stuff You use

Since I last posted, I've lost my job. Talk about the stuff that drives me crazy and things getting under my skin. I'm having to really trust that God knows exactly what He's doing, and that this is not, in fact, the end of the world. It's going to be a learning and growing experience, for sure. And somehow, I think I'll be listening to this song quite a lot.

Lisa,
I heard this song while driving through Missouri today and fell in love! I've been trying to find it online (with only the snippets of lyrics I remember) and couldn't find it for over and hour and I thought I'd try one more time...and poof! Here it is on your blog! You made my day! Thank you!
