Mentoring shortens the learning curve and makes life easier. At every opportunity and time, FHI’s Executive Director, Mr. Samuel Kofi Asiamah, and other FHI partners have provided mentoring to the energetic, youthful FHI missions team members. The mentoring sessions at the just-ended Praying Through Summit (PTS) weren’t an exception. At this year’s PTS, Mr Asiamah led a discussion topic on Making Life Choices: Discernment, Directions, and Decisions, and Pastor Jacob Opata focused on the discussion topic, “The Calling of God: Faith, Fear, and Faithfulness.”

As I sat across from his mentor, he listened intently to the words of wisdom that were being imparted to me. The topic was making life choices, and I knew that this was a critical point in my life where I needed guidance. “Life is a choice,” the mentor began. “God created man with a free will, and the outcomes of our lives are dependent on the choices we make.” I nodded my head in agreement, knowing that he had to take responsibility for my own life.

“Choices have consequences,” the mentor continued. “The quality of life is dependent on the choices we make.” I thought about this for a moment, realizing that I must be more intentional in the decisions I make. The mentor then explained the three factors that influence our choices: exposure, experiences, and expressions of knowledge. I took notes, knowing that these were important points to remember.

“Subconscious factors also play a role in our choices,” the mentor said. “Men are influenced by people around them, admiring them and accepting them.” “Material things, which can make us anxious, and music that can influence us without our permission.” I thought about my own life and realized that these factors had played a significant role in some of the choices I had made. I knew I had to be more aware of these influences in the future.

The mentor then spoke about discernment, quoting Proverbs 14:12: “There is a way that seems right to a man, but the end is death.” I realized that I must be careful when making decisions and that I need to seek guidance from the Holy Spirit. “The Holy Spirit is the ultimate guide in our decision-making,” the mentor said. I knew that I needed to cultivate a deeper relationship with God so that I could discern His will in his life.

Finally, the mentor spoke about the three major choices in life: the choice of who to serve, career, and life partner. I realized that he had to make these choices wisely, as they would shape his destiny. As the mentoring session came to an end, I felt a sense of clarity and purpose. I knew that the truths I had learned would forever shape my destiny, and I was grateful for the guidance I had received. From that day on, I made a conscious effort to make wise choices and seek guidance from the Holy Spirit in all areas of my life.
