Hope you are having the time of your lives, and if you aren’t, don’t worry, you can just continue to live vicariously through me. So, this is me getting right into it. I am leaving Kenya in a couple of minutes, for the next 3 years. It’s officially time for my testimony(nope, not singing P-square, never even crossed my mind).
So a year ago, on the 15th of October, I wrote a post on why I believe God is not dead, and now here we are a year later and the 1st item on my list is being fulfilled. I am enrolled in a Bsc Pharmaceutical Health Sciences program overseas. Can I get an Amen? A Hallelujah!! Because this time, last year, this did not seem plausible at all but the hand of God intervened and provided and opened all the doors.
- Obedience God called me to serve Him a long time ago, I just haven’t admitted it yet. Since 2011, God has been asking me to serve at the Youth Ministry at my church. Last year, I finally answered that call. I submitted my will to Him and obeyed His commands in all He asked of me.
Deuteronomy 11:1~ ‘Love the LORD your God and keep his requirements, his decrees, his laws and his commands always.’
- Blind Faith If you would have seen the bank statement of the account that my fees was paid from, if you would have seen it last year, you would have laughed at me and called me crazy. For some reason, I had an assurance that God would provide all that I needed and indeed He has.
John 6:35 Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.
- Divine Intervention The past few months have included the most complicated processes ever. It wasn’t easy. It has been like playing Dave, where each level is harder than the previous one and the obstacles keep getting bigger. That’s exactly what happened to me. And today, I can boldly say that this was all for God to be glorified. He personally pushed those boulders for me, so that I may declare His praises and share my testimony.
Isaiah 66:2 “For My hand made all these things, Thus all these things came into being,” declares the LORD “But to this one I will look, To him who is humble and contrite of spirit, and who trembles at My word.
I have been aching to share this testimony for the longest time. It was also extremely difficult having to keep it from my friends and extended family until the appointed time. I am overjoyed and overwhelmed because this promise has finally been fulfilled. It’s been almost 6 months of waiting patiently for my application to reach the final stage. I have spent the last 4 years seeming crazy for insisting that I will go back. Just as crazy as Noah talking about a flood at a time when it has never rained, like ever. ‘But God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?’ ~Numbers 23:19
And now, here I am on the plane, jetting off to pursue my dream of making medicine for a living. And I share this so that you may be inspired as well. You have to trust Him blindly to lead you to the promised land. On the journey, do not give up on God because He will not give up on you. Obey His commands, and receive His blessings in your life. God is not dead, he has just been waiting for you to figure that out.
And on that note, it’s been real, have a nice life…
At least until the next post 😀
