This is the Stuff

What has been driving me crazy?

-a leaky pull-up in the middle of the night

-a family of homeless people looking for food in the dumpster

-a jeepney that doesn't slow down for the 8th month pregnant woman to get on safely

-weather that is heating up and making me sweat constantly

-trying to say in Tagalog, "It is hot" and saying "It is little" instead- and the confused look I get

-two dirty little kids with dark eyes and reaching hands and somehow I decide it is better to look the other way (Lord, forgive me for my hard heart!)

This is my little mess. This is what I have to trust God with today.

Sounds like a bad day! The world we live in can sometimes bring us down pretty low. I hope things improve for you soon. Blessings jane

Hey Valerie!
I really like that song too =) It reminds me of how easy it is to let those little thing get to us... they can be so real and demanding.
So much better to keep our thoughts on Him and all He has done/is doing in us. We truly are blessed eh?

Thanks for the encouragement, guys!

Esther- I feel the pain.

I finally found what was mentioned on FB and got to hear the song "This is the stuff"...and today a broken shoe is the stuff.
"and the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glorious grace."
