Psalms 17:5 -- On Not Slipping

"Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not."
Psalms 17:5

I like this prayer.  Seems like life is often very, very slippery, and we need God's help to stay the course, so we don't just fly off course with the touch of a breeze. One thing that helped the people stay on the path in Lehi's dream was the rod of iron, representing the word of God.  Praying, reading our scriptures, and reading or watching or listening to Conference Talks can all help with that.

Today, maybe we can put some of those non-slip things into practice.  Let's especially pray, and just like the psalmist, ask God to help us not slip.  As we do so, let's also examine our actions and our motives, making sure that we're not self-sabotaging and adding to the slipperiness ourselves. :)  Sometimes life seems out of control, but with God we can find traction and progress in our journey.
