"Nothing compares to hanging out with Jesus."
That's what Marlene Legaspi-Munar writes in "Mornings with Jesus" on July 6, 2020.
Nothing compares with it. I thought you would enjoy her reflection as much as I did.
Blessings, love, and hugs from a safe distance,
Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in,
and we will share a meal together as friends.
"When I thought about it more, I realized that people have always struggled with feeling left out - long before social media ever existed or the term FOMO, Fear of Missing Out, was created. The Bible says it's not wise to compare ourselves to others (Galatians 6:4), but we do it anyway. We feel envious and want what others have, forgetting that God has created blessings just for us. We worry about missing out on important social activities.
We make wrong choices while others seem to succeed. But as I make time for Jesus and become more intimate with my Perfect Friend - He assures me I am not missing out. The more time I spend with Jesus, the more my heart knows there's no worldly thing that could ever compete with Him.
He reminds me not to worry (Matthew 6:34), to be grateful for what I have ( Philippians 4:12-13 ),
and to trust His plans for me (Jeremiah 29:11 ). Spending time with Jesus is one thing I wouldn't miss for the world - nothing compares to hanging out with Him."
