Praising God for another year of life





 
Today is my 23rd birthday. As most big days such as this pass, I tend to reflect on the joys and sorrows of the past year, this birthday is no exception. As I look back on the 365 days leading up to this day I realize that God has been so good to me. I have discovered my passion and calling in life, which I believe is to care for sick and hurting people as a physician's assistant. I've been blessed to have an amazing roommate whom I feel very comfortable with and is an inspiration and encouragement to me on a daily basis. I have a wonderful family, all of who are very supportive yet very adapt at keeping me grounded (I need that sometimes). I have also found within myself an ability to work hard at things that I didn't think I could do, like understanding and learning about Biochemistry in Molecular Genetics. While there have been some really great things that have happened there have been days where I didn't want to get out of bed and I lost sight of the joy and wonder of my salvation. I at times doubted that God was doing good things in this broken world, I couldn't see past the brokenness to the healing that God was going to do.
And now as I look forward to the next year of life, if it is God's will that I make it to my next birthday, I am excited about the new things that are possible and the new chapters of life to come. The possibilities of graduate school next fall, new relationships, and new opportunities, and new challenges to face all in the year ahead. In the face of this wonderful day in which I feel so loved, I thank God for all the things he has done in my life, even the painful experiences, because I know that he has a plan for me, a wonderful plan. I can't wait to see what it is

  I am someone who has on the receiving end over the past three years. As I battled cancer and then other serious health issues, I have been blessed by so many caring and compassionate people in the field of health care. May God continue to guide you in your studies.

Blessings!
