God's viewpoint

When the small things in life bug you and you start to take everything personally, perhaps it's time to get God's viewpoint on things. Take a step back, breathe deeply and ask the Holy Spirit to restore your perspective.

Another helpful way to look at this is to ask yourself, "Will this thing I am stressing about, actually matter in 5 (or 10, 25) years from now?" If it has eternal value then it is worth pursuing! If not, then quickly get things back into true perspective.

2 Corinthians 4:18 - "So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."

Living in Grace,
