No Guarantees

Barasoain Weekly Reflection for 11 – 17 March 2018


“The pain that you’ve been feeling, can’t compare to the joy that’s coming.”

– Romans 8:18

Stock markets. Current affairs. Everyday life. Price. Relations. What all of these have all in common? They are all uncertain variables in this life. Actions in these field does not guarantee success.

Last week, I asked a friend of mine on advice on what to do on something that bothers me. After a few minutes of talk, an advice was given. However that advice carries one warning: It does not guarantee success. Considering the expertise the person carries on that area, the advice my friend gave me still will not guarantee success, though I know that it will be the best thing to do.

All of us will face in one way or another volatile situations wherein stakes are high. It seems that any possible advice given to us will always carry some sort of risk.

When we people face trouble in our lives, we tend to pray to God for guidance. This is an acknowledgement of His power, as well our trust and faith in Him. We always believe that His plan is greater than ours.

The Lord invites us today to trust Him. Our lives may not be trouble-free and we may not get complete serenity but we can be assured that whatever challenges we face that we lift up to Him, it will be taken care of. Even if there is a risk. Faith is our best weapon in the battle we face everyday, especially when stakes start going up.

No risk is too high with God
