The Father’s Heart And Life Lessons
The Adornment Two by Adah Doebele is a book written to glorify God. The reader gets glimpses into Adah Doebele’s life as well as life lessons of God. Everything that is said is backed up with scripture. This book certainly gives God the glory.
Adah Doebele writes of God’s plans. He has a plan for everyone who calls on His name. “God had a plan for my brokenness.” No one is ever excluded from God’s love.
We need to listen for God’s call on our lives. “God whispers more often than He yells.” We cannot hear Him if other voices are drowning Him out. We need to silence all other voices but God’s.
How Big Is Your Box?
The Adornment One by Adah Doebele is a personal testimony. Born in Kenya, Adah Doebele relates her story from the start. It is a story that will bring tears to your eyes. She was seen as ‘worthless’ in her mother’s eyes and subjected to awful acts of cruelty. As a Mum living in the UK, I was horrified and appalled at the treatment of a young girl.
Adah Doebele’s story through her teenage years does not improve. Everyone seems to put on her and bring her down. It is a tragic tale but there are bright spots – giving birth to a daughter. “I had… a reason to live.” All her energies were placed into bringing up and loving her children. She was a good mother in spite of having a terrible role model in her own.
Forgiveness is a thread running throughout. “Forgiving is easier for me than begrudging.” Life has not made Adah Doebele bitter.
