HOW TO ATTAIN STABILITY

Losing the grip?

We always work hard to have stability in life...Keeping a job, having the family intact and with close ties, having good friends, staying in good position whether in work, home or in society and staying blessed… this is what God had promised us to be or to have when we choose to be righteous or good. (Not self righteous-this is different.)


Proverbs 10: 30

New International Version (NIV)
See: www.biblegateway.com
30 The righteous will never be uprooted,
but the wicked will not remain in the land.
.
Kawikaan 10:30 (Tagalog)
Magandang Balita Biblia (TPV)
30 Ang matuwid ay mananatili sa kanyang dako, ngunit ang masama, kung saan-saan matutungo.

We know exactly what are the consequences of being bad or wicked…losing job, being exiled, extricated, demotion and all the unlikeable situations which gives discomfort, worries, fears and hardships.

I don’t want to loose my grip. I want to be stable. I want to keep hanging on…and try to be GOOD at all times. Let us…

Hang on to God.

Let us do our best to stay with God.


Let us pray…


Our Holy Father in Heaven, sometimes there are situations in our lives, we forget to maintain our goodness…sometimes, we do not know how to deal with the situation with goodness in mind. I admit, Lord, I am still weak. There are some people and situation that provoke us to act unfavorably. Forgive me, Lord. I do not wish to be uprooted from Your family. I am doing all my best to be good. Please keep me away from those people or situation that would provoke me to make mistakes and turn my back on Your love and teachings. Give me good friends and people who would walk with me to Your goodness and right path. I know, Lord, despite of my imperfections…You would mold me to be better…You would make me strong enough not to lose my grip of faith in YOU. In Jesus name I pray…Amen.

  1. I believe that whatever problems we are facing now, having a grip with HIM will be the best option. If we cannot hold anymore, HE will be the one who holds us.

  20. It's the nature of people to seek a comfortable life. We always pray for a better life that is and if we have one we almost forget that God is our life. Right now, I am praying for His guidance to show me the right way and to decide not just for me but for the better of everyone. I will keep my faith on His will.

  27. I do lose my grip...many times. I am very much a work in progress when it comes to reigning in my emotions. I enjoy the learning process, and hoping I am much better when I started. :-)
