There is a psychological condition called. FOMA which afflicts many in our world today. It is the fear of making any sort of commitment of time, effort or endeavour in case we MISS OUT on something else that may come along. Even the media is today driven by this disease……One story is alright but I must run so that I do not miss something ‘better’.
Something to think about
As Christian Believers LIVING in this world of frantically seeking for more and ‘better’ We must ……..
S T O P!
We are cautioned many times in the Word………Be content with what you have and not anxious about what you do not have.( Philippians). ‘TRUST in ME! Jesus said.
The words of an old hymn came to me this morning.
Upon the solid Rock I stand,
All else is shifting sand
Standing on the Rock of Christ. Knowing His Salvation Plan for ALL is a great place to STAND.
But the Truth is that Because He Lives…though we may be ‘anchored’ in Him….our lives are not static. Our focus is ‘upwards’ ever for things ‘above’ the ordinary, but looking to the ‘extraordinary’, we should be reaching out, loving and caring and simply BEING ANCHORED (often invisibly) always in Him. We defeat FOMA by knowing absolutely that the Impossible is always Possible when our anchor HOLDS. Jesus Christ IS LORD!
Blessings and Love to all.
