Not So Together

Sometimes I look like I’ve got life sorted.

But the truth is, most of the time, I’m not so together.

The kids aren’t always happy. The bickies aren’t always home-baked. The floors aren’t always swept.

It’s highly likely I can’t find my keys, or my phone, or my shoes, or my brain.

Fortunately, I know that God doesn’t need me to be perfect.

In fact – He often uses my weaknesses more than my strengths.


This song by Christian artist and young mum Francesca Battistelli always puts a smile on my face and reminds me to get some perspective. After all, it’s not the end of the world!  



“It might not be what I would choose, but this is the stuff you use.”

(Francesca Battistelli)

  1. I love that song too. It brings a smile to my face too, and especially on the days when things aren’t that great. It’s amazing the stuff He uses to touch others.

  2. I’m smiling after listening to that song – thanks for the pick me up after a long day of ‘not being together’! I starting to expect that God will do the unexpected in my life – very little seems to pan out how I plan at the beginning of a day (or week or year!). So interesting to look back though and see how He’s been at work…so glad I don’t have to plan it all though!

  3. I am so glad I read this blog post the other day. Today on the way home from church I stopped with the kids to collect autumn leaves to use at school this week. We climbed back in to the car and discovered the youngest had dragged dog poo all over the seats. So when we got home instead of getting lunch I cleaned the car. Went to get bread for lunch only to discover someone had not closed the lid on maple syrup bottle and it had been knocked over and spilt EVERYWHERE! Decided to wait till after lunch to lean up TNT and then realized there was no bread, luckily we did have some in freezer. Wanted to cry and scream but remembered this great song so I got out the iPad and while I enjoyed the lyrics the kids loved the video clip. Good reminder of how big I am blessed. Thank you.

  4. That’s a great song, I’ve heard it a few times on 96five, and thanks for the honest post, I can so relate, you’ve put things back into perspective for me:).
