I saw a commercial the other night on t.v. that got me to thinking. It was talking about FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). We have so many things that are a part of our daily life- due to FOMO. I know I have FOMO. I check my Facebook page to see if anyone has commented on anything noteworthy or has tagged me in a post. I look at my phone, from time to time throughout the day, just to see if someone texting me or has called me. I have to hop on Pinterest to see what is new in the world of crafts, funny sayings, fashion, recipes, home décor, & the like, because I don’t want to be the last one to know what’s happening. I have to check my email, read the articles on Yahoo & scan the blogs I love- just to make sure I am up to date.
Then, there are cell phones….need I say more?? Why is that I cannot go anywhere without my phone? I mean I take it room to room with me, at home. I have it while I am driving, at the store, at work, at church (on silent of course), wherever I am I have my phone. Texting is a whole other entity in itself. There is a campaign going on with AT & T telling people – “It can wait.” Why? Because people have a fear of missing out, more now, than ever before.
There’s one appointment, that we do not have to worry about missing out on. The Hebrew writer tells of it in
Hebrews 9:27-And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.
If we miss death, then we will meet the Lord in judgment.
I Thessalonians 4:15 For we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep.
- For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout with the voice of an archangel and with the trumpet of God, And the dead in Christ will rise first.
- Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
- Therefore comfort one another with these words.What a wonderful thing to look forward to. I admit, I seriously have a bad case of FOMO. But am so happy I won’t have to miss out on seeing Jesus one day!
I am so glad you stopped by my blog today. I hope you are having a great week. Fall weather is in the air & it’s making the days much more bearable. Welcome October! I am so glad to see you! I have to be going now, because I should be washing clothes…..
