This is the Stuff...

I can’t get this song out of my head.  Yes, it describes me and my frustrations, but the words that stick out to me the most from this song are… I’ve gotta trust you know exactly what you’re doing.

Big things in life come up.  Small things in life come up.  I’ve gotta trust.

I have to trust that He knew what He was doing when He made me.  I am fearfully and wonderfully made. (Ps 139)  I am also quirky.  He knew that.  He knows that.  And He uses it to His advantage.

Some days I get so mad and frustrated that I can’t find my keys.  How can such an organized, neat freak not know where her keys are???  Yet even in these small, seemingly unimportant details of life, I can see how desperately I need Him for everything.  And I thank God He has me on such a short rope.  I can’t take too many steps throughout a day before I realize just how much I need God for everything.

Then it helps me to thank Him for just what He’s giving and given me.  I’m learning to love this short “leash.”  It helps me to never get far from my Creator.  I am desperate for Him.  I still get mad that my leash is so short.  But it takes me longer these days.  I’m learning to trust that He knows exactly what He’s doing.

If you haven’t heard this song, check it out.  Be warned, it’s catchy.  But it always puts me in a good mood.
