Grace and Truth and The Joy of Missing Out

May 3, 2019 |
Grace and Truth

I have been totally, and completely, overwhelmed this week. I started a new organization system at the end of last month that helped me feel like I got a handle on things… so what did I do? I took on more work. Now I feel like an organized sinking ship. I’m full of good intentions, but still completely overwhelmed.

Have you ever been there?

In the midst of all my organized chaos, I came across a blog post that caused me to pause. To take a deep breath and really just enjoy the moment.

Sometimes we need a reminder to enjoy the moments… Click To Tweet
You've heard of FOMO (fear of missing out) but what about JOMO? #ChristianLinkUp

Yes, I have a lot to do, and I will probably work some overtime, and have to shift some deadlines. But when push comes to shove, I have everything I need and I love writing and blogging.

So, without further ado, I invite you to visit Jennifer’s blog and read her post FOMO vs JOMO.

    I had the immense pleasure of speaking to my 9th & 10th grade girls small group this past week about the difference (and freedom) of FOMO and JOMO!
    It was a totally new thought process for them!

    Hey, Heather! Thanks for hosting the link up. I love getting organized, but sometimes it gives us a false sense of security and we can take on more than God intended for us to in this moment in our lives. Thanks for the reminder!
