Well the time has finally come! I am officially done with my master’s degree to become a family nurse practitioner. It has been a long and trying couple of years and I can’t even believe it’s finished.
I can remember starting this journey to go back to school and my why being to make more money for more financial stability. I remember laying in the hospital bed typing a paper my first few weeks of school after having my thyroid out. My body went into chaos trying to adjust to that process both physically and mentally. To anyone with thyroid problems, well you know. I remember thinking, well actually not even being able to think straight and wondering how in the world I was going to get through school with all the other things.
Right about that time my husband, Wes and I gave our lives to the Lord, in all of the chaos, Jesus was my only constant and comfort. I established with a new PCP and I can remember going to her in those messy days of extreme anxiety and her just being so gentle with me. Then one day I was at the doctor, what seemed like the millionth time asking and seeking questions what was wrong and why I felt so terrible. My son, Jude on my lap and chatting with my PCP, her response was I just have to do this but I saw you were recently baptized and I would love to pray with you. Right there in the doctor’s office my nurse practitioner laid hands on me and prayed over me, my health, my son, my family. I knew right then God had lead me there and I knew right then that He was showing me why I furthered my education. It wasn’t for the money nor the security.
He showed me that my purpose was to serve His kingdom. To be a light in a darkened place, to speak life, to speak truth, to see Him break down walls, and ultimately see healing for patients! I cannot wait to embark on this new adventure.
On top of ALL that Wes and I “graduated” from our foster/adoption classes this past December and are so excited for the journey our family is about to go on and giving more sweet babes a loving home. We also pray to cling to and trust our Heavenly Father during this process.
With all of that being said all’s I know is “Lord, here I am, send me.”
