God is Faithful

faithful.jpgOne night during my junior year, I was sitting on the floor in my dorm room. I was thinking about my life goals, and future career. At the time, I wanted to go to medical school and be a Pediatrician. However, I was really praying and seeking God, and He was beginning to show me things about myself. I began to realize that ministry was going to be a big part of my life. Of course as a Christian, ministry is a big part of our life, but He was showing me how. That night, I can’t even explain the feeling I had, but it was uneasy. I realized that not only did I not want to go to medical school anymore, but that lifestyle was not going to match up with what God was showing me. I began to get scared. However, I trusted God.

That summer, I applied to a research program. By the grace of God, I was accepted to do research at a pharmaceutical lab. While it was difficult at times, I absolutely loved it. It was exciting to not only learn about certain drugs, but to actually do some experiments to see their effects was truly amazing. It was after that experience, that I realized pharmacy is what I want to do. It became clear to me that when God has placed something in your heart, trust that He will not leave you confused and He will order your steps. “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.” Proverbs 16:3

That summer I also went on a tour at a Pharmacy school that I was really interested in. This school was great because it is affiliated with the lab I did research with. I fell in love. This school, was not too big, or too small, and I could see myself there. I began to get excited. My excitement quickly turned to fear when I had to register for the PCAT (Pharmacy College Admissions Test). This exam is a big factor during the admissions process and I had less than three months to prepare. During those three months, school started, and my family was going through a rough time. I did not study. Test day came, and I failed. I thought to myself, I will never get into pharmacy school now. But, through encouragement from family and friends, I persisted. I signed up for the next testing date, which gave me two months to study. I studied a little more, but still did not feel qualified. However, this time I did better, but it was still a score not good enough for almost all pharmacy schools (I’m not exaggerating).

I knew pharmacy is what I wanted to do. With my low PCAT scores, I realized I had to take a different route. I looked up schools that didn’t require it. Perfect idea, right? So, I applied. But, I did not include the school that I initially fell in love with, because I did not feel good enough. I heard back from one school, and I was excited. But, yet deep down my excitement was not because I loved the school, but because a school was actually interested in me. I went for an interview and a tour. I did not like this school. Yet, I masked my true feelings with joy and excitement, and talked myself into thinking this school as perfect, but it wasn’t. I knew which school was right.

Weeks went by and I didn’t hear a thing from the school I had the interview for. I was hurt. I prayed, but I knew what I had to do. I applied to the school I knew I wanted to go to. A few days later, I received a phone call and it was the school I applied to a few days prior! They wanted to interview me. My hands were shaking.

The day of the interview came. I was scared, sweaty, and anxious, but it all felt right. I was given an individual tour, and the staff was amazing. They offered me lunch, a newspaper to read, and when the interviewer was running late, they were so apologetic and tried their best to make me comfortable. I felt so appreciated. The interview was quick, and that scared me. I thought that I didn’t speak enough, and I didn’t convince them of my passion for pharmacy. However, I didn’t lose faith.

Less then a week later, I received a phone call congratulating me on my acceptance to the Doctor of Pharmacy program. I knew it was not me, but it was God. I applied to this school very late, My GPA just met their requirements, and my PCAT was not even close to competitive. So how did I even get accepted? When God has placed a desire in your heart, you don’t have to doubt that He will direct your path. That night in my dorm room, I knew that God was doing something, and I had to trust that. Throughout the whole process, God orchestrated EVERYTHING. It is still mind blowing. “It is not that we think we are qualified to do anything on our own. Our qualification comes from God.” 2 Corinthians 3:5

I wanted to share this testimony with you all, because I wanted to show you just how faithful God is. There were no coincidences. Even when I doubted His plan, and applied to schools that I thought I was more qualified for, I did not even get accepted! Gosh, God has a plan for us, and we don’t even have to worry that He will not follow through. When you don’t feel qualified to do what God has placed in your heart, learn from Jeremiah. “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.” “Oh Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I can’t speak for you! I’m too young!” The Lord replied, “Don’t say, ‘I’m too young,’ for you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you.  And don’t be afraid of the people, for I will be with you and will protect you. I, the Lord, have spoken!” Jeremiah 1:5-8. Jeremiah was scared because he didn’t feel qualified. But, God reminded him that he is qualified because He will be with him. Just like God was there for Jeremiah, He will be there for you.

God loves you dearly, and His plan for your life is far better than what you could have ever imagined. Trust Him. I pray that sharing my testimony encourages you to trust Him with your future. I hope to continue to share my journey through pharmacy school, and I’m thinking of even starting a vlog, but I’ll keep you posted! I’d love to hear your testimonies and experiences about God’s faithfulness. Stay encouraged, and continue to Be His Masterpiece.

Love Y’all,

Dee

  1. Hey it’s me again, I just wanted to read this because I remember you said you have a blog. Im applying this year like I said on YouTube & I have a similar story but I’m just kind of Trusting God because it’s really out of my hands. My grades sucks & I did horrible on my PCAT. I went to college in 2012 & I knew I wanted to do pharmacy but been on and off about the idea. I was and still am a very confused child lol. So I prayed about it for over a year & God finally answer my prayers by the Holy Spirit coming on me on time durning worship & he told me not to be afraid & also that do I not know that he is God ? My heart felt very heavy as though someone has just broken my heart. I broke out crying because that’s how God felt every time I doubted him. So (the Holy Spirit) begin to prophecy (through me) about so many things & about some people. Glory be to God that one of those prophecies just came to pass like days ago. a woman has giving birth to a child just as the spirit of the lord said would happen within a Year. In fact I was very shocked when it happened. Even the gender of the baby was exactly what God told me. On the day I recieved all the prophecies God also told me to take my PCAT (which I failed horribly) & told me not be afraid for he is with me.(I’ve registered for it again). Also God told me the name of the school I will be attending. I kid you not ! The Holy Spirit even spelled out the letters of the school.mind you I had not even heard or looked into this school before. I didn’t even know it existed. The school doesn’t require the PCAT. (I honestly don’t even know why I’m bothering myself with the PCAT) but I’m still kind of scared and don’t want to apply to that one school😬 So with the PCAT I can apply to more schools🙈.Now with my horrible grades and no experience what so ever, i must say I’m scared. I do believe and trust God but I’m scared.the school only takes like10 people out of state & I’m asking myself; with this horrible grades & no experience how will i get in? I think to myself if God made this married women who’s being seeking for a child have a child like he said would happen,then God can make everything possible. I try to encourage myself & tell myself that it’s God that chooses the students not people. It’s God that will give me my acceptance letter and not a person. By the power Of the Holy Spirit, I recieve my acceptance letter in Jesus might name! Amen🙏🏻🙏🏻🙌 stay blessed💞

  3. It is refreshing to reach your story. Your vlogs popped up in my YouTube feed. I am a mother of two, a wife, with a graduate degree, but never felt fulfilled. God placed the passion of pharmacy in my heart 15 years ago and I made excuses why that would not work for me. Earlier this year I had a O.K. job with good money. My husband and I bought our first home, and a week after closing I quit my job. I was the bread winner and my family income dropped dramatically. HE has provided and every bill has been paid on time, food has filled my family’s bodies. I have learned to keep HIS plan for me to myself. In the past, I have let people tell me what I should or shouldn’t do. That what I felt in my heart is now how you provide for a family. I had to realize, following HIM is providing for my family. I felt HIS whisper getting more persistent, to a point where I couldn’t run anymore. I had to go back to school to retake my science prereqs that were completed ten years ago. When the classes were first taken, my grades were low and does not meet any pharmacy school requirements. I mustered up the courage to call my dream pharmacy school, Wingate University, and they only look at the highest grade!!. I also was looking at schools with low GPAs and surprising my dream school is actually my best chances. I know this post is doing rambling, but I am so excited to read your blogs and watch your vlogs. Thank you for blessing me with your story.
