You have to move differently from the pain of your past. Life has taught many of us some lessons. Some have seen the purpose in the pain; others, unfortunately, have sulked in with the disaster

Personally, going through a few challenges has taught me to pause and get to know who Adobea is. I reflected on my life and looked at patterns, patterns of choices made, patterns of decisions made, mindset, and expectations. In my quest to find the purpose in the pain, I also embarked on recognizing these patterns and how things must change. Luckily, I was graced to ascertain what these patterns are.

The biggest lesson for me is the God factor; this does not mean I was not a Christian before; it just means I was not grounded in the things of God as I should have, so I became ignorant of the devices of the adversary. 2nd Corinthians 2:11, so that Satan might not outwit us. For, we are not unaware of his schemes.

I didn't have an intimate relationship with God as I ought to, there is a difference between having true intimacy with God and just being a casual Christian. I have come to realize that having God as an anchor changes everything. Unfortunately, a lot of Christians lack spiritual maturity and are spiritually blinded, and as a result, we fight battles we have no business fighting

Perhaps if you have faced challenges in this life, take a pause, list down all happenings, recognize patterns, and ask the Lord to help you discern those things you got to change. You can't go into the new with the same mindset. You got to move differently and this time, make sure God is the anchor and the proper foundation of your entire being. You have to put on the full armor of God and you must do so by applying all of the Gospel to all of Your life, Ephesians 6. You can not know God shabily and expect to have his full armor. Patterns and cycles must break. Everything has to be new this time. Shalom.

Adobea (Imani)
