Today I am practicing JOMO. It’s not easy. Saying no to something brought up all kinds of FOMO. After all, was I going to miss something? What if it was really cool? What if they come home and say how wonderful it all was?
But I said no. And here is why. I needed to take care of my heart and soul. It wasn’t about the company I would keep or the activity I would experience – both would have been awesome. It really is about me knowing me and what I can do.
Read: Colossians 1:9-10
When I read this, I learn that when I grow in wisdom and understanding, I will also know God better. And knowing God better means I learn to know myself better. He gives me the courage to say no.
Do you know yourself? Can you say no so that you might embrace JOMO? I find it difficult, but I think it will be worth it.
