OVERCOMING ADVERSITIES


Global Markets are now in deep hot waters because they are rapidly affected by the economic and financial meltdown in United States. I’m deeply saddened that some Filipinos in different states of U.S.A. were lost their job, homes, and dreams about this issue. Sending some remittances from the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) to their loved ones will be going slower due to the global economic downturn. Some financial executives are emotionally facing their fears of recession. Millions of employees will cut their jobs, pack-up their things, and go back their homes because they are strongly bothered and dispirited.

CNN’s main anchor Wolf Blitzer who interviewed with Donald Trump on the daily afternoon program, “The Situation Room” last week. Mr. Trump, who is the chief of the Trump Group of Companies, lashed out U.S. President Bush and called him “stupidly mismanagement.” The American magnate rated Bush’s job approval was “F minus” — i.e., the biggest failures of not pulling out of some remaining U.S. troops in Iraq, the fallout markets at the Wall Street, dollar meltdown, foreclosures of real estates, credit crunch, and losing jobs. President Bush belied the Americans that they strongly felt the real presence of economic recessions in their homeland.

Right now, the people around the globe will face many sorrows. Jesus said in Matthew 24:8 “All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Our Lord Jesus Christ foretold this prediction about the issues of adversities like the world financial crisis happen right now.

There are many people really hard to overcome adversities in their own selves. Although, they must seek first to God and His righteousness as Jesus spoke to his disciples in Matthew 6:33, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

This is an excellent teaching from the Lord Jesus Christ by seeking God’s kingdom, righteousness and following His will. Some people failed to seek God first because they seek first on business, family, friends, and pleasures in this world.

I hope some blog writers and readers won’t regret to read and understand my tips to overcome the adversities. Here are the following:

· Always pray and seek God. St. Paul said in Philippians 4:6, “Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” I always pray every morning before wake up and night before sleeping. If you want to seek God, read the Bible as God said through prophet Isaiah: “Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them” (Isaiah 34:16).

· Communicate with your loved ones, relatives, friends, and co-members of your church. Talk to your parents, relatives, friends and co-members of your church to cope up your problems, eliminate anxieties and they will encourage and pray you.

· Find the pastor to encourage your spiritual faith. In Ecclesiastes 12:10 says: “The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth.” The pastor will preach Bible verses how to encourage and advise you to overcome adversities in your life. And;

· Be humble. Ask forgiveness to the Lord and be humble. Imitate the examples of Jesus how did he become humble until his death on the cross (Philippians 2:5ff.). Change your negative thoughts into positive thoughts and move on for the better future and you.
