I want to ask, What Are You Speaking? The word says that life and death lie in the power of the tongue – Proverbs 18:21; so, are you choosing to speak life or death? Are you speaking positively or negatively? Are you speaking like you already have the victory or defeated? COME ON Y’ALL. Especially on this journey through medicine and life, in general, you must decide to speak life. My family and friends know that around me we don’t do all that defeated talk. I belong to God and I trust him. If he is my father, he will take care of me so I have nothing to worry about. Remember when you were a kid? You didn’t worry about things because you knew your parents would take care of everything. If someone did something to you, you felt safe in your parent’s arms knowing they had your back. That’s how we must be with the Lord. My daddy has my back and I know he is going to come through for me. He has never failed me so I’m going to continue to trust him.
If you read my accepted to PA School blog, you will see how I kept saying “I believe I’m going to get accepted” I wasn’t talking defeated. Sometimes we must change what we say because again Life and death lies in the power of our tongue. There is going to be times where it seems like you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. I was speaking that I’m getting accepted to PA for almost a year. I didn’t see anything happening at first, but I didn’t allow that to change my way of thinking. I didn’t allow that to change what I was saying. You may not see the end right off the bat, but you must trust God and hold him to his word. This is where faith comes into play. Sometimes God will hold things off to see if you are going to trust him! How can God trust you with that business if you’re always talking defeated? How can he trust you to be able to save lives if you give up easily? (I sure wouldn’t want a medical provider that gives up easily). Even if you don’t see it you have to keep saying it until you see it. If you have enough faith to believe it GOD has enough power to do it. Let me tell you guys this story:
After I graduated College I was still trying to figure out what I was going to do. One thing I knew for sure was that I wasn’t going back home! I’d been thinking about scribing. I was getting ready to move to Nashville where I didn’t know anybody (but when you know the Lord he will place people in your path to help you!!) I kept saying I’m going to become a medical scribe while I prepare myself for health professional school. Everyone would ask me what I’m doing after I graduate, and I would say I’m going to scribe. Baby, I didn’t know anybody in Nashville, I didn’t know where I was going to scribe but I just knew I was going to be scribing! I sent an email to one of my mentors who is a physician telling him I want to scribe and that I was moving to Nashville and if he had any advice. Well, he told me he had a friend that was the medical director in the Emergency Department at a hospital there and that he would put me in contact with him. Well, guess what! I got in contact with the doctor and was able to get the job! Let me tell y’all how amazing God is, I didn’t have to interview or anything. God is so amazing because before I even knew I needed patient care hours for PA school GOD had already given me the scribing job which was a way I could get my hours! God knew exactly what he was doing. See what trusting God, speaking life, having faith and doing the work (yes because faith without works is dead, you can’t be speaking stuff and not doing your part) will get you!
So, I want to encourage you guys; don’t give up. Speak life, speak positive things and Watch God do it! Love you guys and God loves you soooo much!
I’m speaking it that I’ve lost 20 pounds hahahahahahahah Let me speak it and do my part by eating healthy and working out. Y’all pray for me!
