Today i’ll be sharing another #testimonytimestory!
Your girl graduated this May, with a Masters of Science in Biology (a focus in Immunology and Diseases)!!!!
If I’m being honest, I am celebrating more than just earning this MSc. I am celebrating God’s faithfulness. What is a full testimony without a backstory???
I shared in a previous #testimonytime post that I had started working a new job in January 2018. While working as a Professional Academic Advisor at Purdue, I enrolled in a Masters program the fall semester of that same year. Yikesss.
To be honest it was an “on the spur of the moment” decision. It was a God-thing though – this much I am sure of which is why I held on when things got toughhhhh.
So in the last two years, I have been joggling a full time job, full-time Masters program, studying for the MCAT and adjusting/settling into a new city.
Whewww! Talk about life being in a whirlwind.
I continually felt like i was barely making it. But boy did these last 2 years teach me something about the faithfulness of God. I have witnessed Him come in clutch at the brink of so many moments that seemed hopeless.
I have too many stories of feeling choked up by all my responsibilities, being at the end of my strength, like there was absolutely no where else to go. There were days where I was battling physical sickness, mental exhaustion and still had to come through at work, at school, in my MCAT study and personal life.
Man, even just typing this and remembering God come through in each day brings me to tears.
Matthew 11:28-30 New International Version
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Take His yoke upon yourself and learn from Him. For He is gentle and humble in heart.
This is my testimony, that for every moment of uncertainty, disappointment, fear, anxiety, pain, doubt, feeling unmotivated, God wrapped me up in His grace and His strength and made a way for me, He continues to make a way for me.
So again, ya girl is a graduateeeee x2!!
I pray that you read this post and be reminded of who God is. I hear Him calling you today to REMEMBER. Remember His pure goodness, His faithfulness, His promises to you, His love for you, His power and His grace that will carry you to the very end. And GET UP in boldness. You are not bold and able to do hard and seemingly impossible things because you are strong on your own. But He is calling you to step INTO His own strength and boldness. RISE UP and be strengthened to do that which He has called you to do, even when it seems tough. Remember and trust that what He said, He will do. No matter the new evidence that comes up today, tomorrow or next month, God is STILL able to do far more than you can think, ask or imagine. RISE UP, dear one and be encouraged by testimonies of His goodness. He is with you. I encourage you to take the time to study the book of Joshua chapter 1 today. God never leaves His friends stranded.
“and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the very end” – Jesus.
