Personal Development, Finance and Investing For Filipinos
An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest. Financial Education is your best investment.
Failures are part of life. If you don't fail, you don't learn. If you don't learn, you'll never change.
Look up from your failure, and you'll find God standing ready to receive you. Failure does not mean that God has left you. This means that God has a better way for you. I would like to share a daily devotional from the book, Our Daily Bread.
For years after the Great Depression, the stock market struggled to win back investors' confidence. Then, in 1952, Harry Markowitz suggested that investors spread their stock holdings over several companies and industries. He developed a theory for portfolio selection that helped investors in uncertain times. In 1990, Markowitz and two others won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for their theory.
Like those jittery investors, we followers of Jesus may also find ourselves frozen in fear after a "crash" in our personal lives, unsure how to pick up the pieces and move on. We might even spend our remaining lives waiting for a "Markowitz moment," when one big idea or action can help us recover from a previous failure.
We forget that Jesus has already done that on our behalf. He covered our shame, and He set us free to fellowship with God and serve Him daily. Because He gave His life, and rose from the dead, when we "fall," we can "arise" with Him, for He delights in mercy.
The moment we find Jesus, our eternity with Him begins. He walks alongside us so He can change us into the people we long to be and were created to be.
Father, my actions aren't adequate to fix failures. Thank you for doing that through Your Son Jesus who gave Himself for us. Help me to look up and walk with You.
He will bring me forth to the light; I will see His righteousness.
