I noticed a pattern about 9 years ago. Whenever I'm about to accomplish a new thing, attain a new height, or do something significant, I face a challenge that initially looks insurmountable. However, by praying and seeking counsel, I have always sailed through.


You would think that by now I would recognise the pattern. Yet, when challenges arise, I am not always prepared. It takes being quiet in my spirit and listening to wise counsel for me to remember, ohhh, there must be something major coming my way.

I don't know why it happens this way for me, but I'm grateful.

Challenges come with advantages

1. These challenges keep you grounded.
2. They humble me, and they force me to grow.
3. They also remind me that I can not rely on my own strength, I need God and I need others!

I have also come to recognise these challenges as announcers of something major right around the corner.

This post might just be for you. It has been on my heart to share and if this is for you, please remember that you are not alone!

These challenges keep you grounded.
