There are many facets to life that many of us don't know about. On my column I give my personal views from real life experiences, sound advice on daily obstacles, and I write out lessons I've learned on my personal journey.
As of recently, society has seen a drastic increase of people beginning to base or model their relationships off of secular celebrities and their relatively short lived relationships/marriages instead of the biblical principles that God originally intended for all humanity. When God is not included as the foundation for a relationship/marriage it will almost always be headed for destruction or divorce. On the flip side, there are many couples that eventually develop the foundation of Christ further down the line in their relationship/marriage. To be honest marriages that don't have a foundation on the principles of Jesus Christ are only considered marriage to humanity and aren't really considered marriage or honored in God's eyes because it's done contrary to what he created it to be. But ultimately it's between God and that couple.
Luke 6: 47-49 says, "I will show you what it’s like when someone comes to me, listens to my teaching, and then follows it. It is like a person building a house who digs deep and lays the foundation on solid rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against that house, it stands firm because it is well built. But anyone who hears and doesn’t obey is like a person who builds a house right on the ground, without a foundation. When the floods sweep down against that house, it will collapse into a heap of ruins.”
Your unconscious mind controls your behavior so it can lead you to compromising and also alters your judgment and feelings. So in relationships/marriages things like adultery, infidelity, cheating, lying, constant arguing, and constant lack of communication will be inevitable unless there is a foundation there that can eliminate these things from even happening in the first place. Evaluate the reasons for you even wanting to get into a relationship in the first place. Lack of attention? Tired of being alone? Is it only about you and your needs? Seeking to simply have someone entertain you? These are all the wrong reasons for wanting a relationship. You should always be content while single first.

The most important variable when thinking about the reconditioning of your mind is to recognize what the flaws or deviance's are first. Things will start to become slightly clearer once you can actually confess and agree that there is specific change that is needed in your life. I had to cut off things that hindered me and isolate myself before I was able to receive all of the wisdom and knowledge from the Lord that I have now. Once I allowed the Holy Spirit to take control, things begin to change drastically and the Lord gave me a different perception or view on life and the people that get an opportunity to live it. So I know the process vividly! Reconditioning your mindset will take being intentional about putting fresh and new information into it. What I mean is to take control of the things you allow yourself to entertain and be influenced by such as what you watch before bed or indulge in on social media. These simple activities can adversely contaminate your vision on life and or create a perception of things that aren't really good for you. So recognize first that there is a clear change that is needed and then be bold in taking action.
It is very important to understand who you are as a individual and where you stand with Christ as so many issues and catastrophes are currently plaguing us as a nation. Evaluate your life and how you're currently living because we never know when our last day on this earth can be. Since we are in the last days according to the Bible, the adversary is out unleashing all the attacks that he can because he realizes now that his time is almost up to roam around this earth deceiving and destroying people who haven't accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. It is important to also note that while Jesus Christ loves everyone of us the same, we don't all have the same hedge of protection around us from the adversaries attacks. If you haven't accepted Jesus Christ into your heart and as your Lord and Savior then the adversary has a legal right to hinder and influence your life in whatever way he chooses. But on the flip side if you have accepted Jesus Christ and know that he is Lord then you are protected through his blood that was shed and also through your fervent prayers. Never underestimate the power of your prayers. When the enemy knows your prayers are powerful, he will try to make you feel as though your prayers are worthless and powerless. Keep pressing on and stay focused on what your purpose is in life!
Your actions have to prove that you have been grasping what you've been taught in life and by God's word. Anything less is a sign of regression!

Your worth shouldn't be based off of another persons perception of you! God's love establishes true worth because he is our basis for all things!
