Don't Get Caught Up in the Details of Life
Someone once said, “As I look back, this is what matters: I have loved and been loved and all the rest is just background music.”
Well, that works if you’ve loved and been loved…but some people haven’t had those opportunities…at least not the normal, healthy ones. So what can you do?
First, don’t take the bait! The adversary wants you miserable; looking at what you don’t have and what is not yet resolved. Don’t get caught in those details. Fear freezes you in place and you lose out on God’s great adventure.
Then, know that love is the answer. Not the squishy, emotional kind of love…that comes and goes. The love that lasts is the love that God is talking about, and we are to love as God has loved us. Review God’s definition of love in 1 Corinthians 13. His perfect love perseveres until it perfects. Thank you Jesus!
Take stock of what is really important to you; let God give you His eyesight and viewpoint on your life…don’t let God be the “background music” of your life. Put Him in the front of your life, love Him, and be loved by Him…forever.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or
boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not
insist on its own way; it is not irritable or
resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing,
but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all
things, believes all things, hopes all
things, endures all things.
I Corinthians 13:4-7
