STACEY GAGNE – Ok, who doesn’t get that song by Francesca Batistelli stuck in their head? I may or may not have been belting it out jokingly through the office this afternoon while adding my own silly lyrics about the frustrations of my day. . It sure has a hook… and is encouraging listeners, too.
The other day we had a listener call in and say thanks so much for playing that song. She had been driving back and forth across the county all day running errands. She found it was fun and uplifting musically and encouraging. The lyrics remind us that the stuff that “drives us crazy” are the very things that God uses in our lives… from little to big.
James 1: 2-4 reminds us to “Consider it pure joy … whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” So, maybe… just maybe… the next time we get cut off in traffic, receive a frustrating phone call or unexpected bill, or can’t find our sunglasses (most of the time mine are sitting on top of my head when I can’t find them) we will think of this song and smile???
