After many months of prayer and conversations with key friends and family, I finally feel like I know what my purpose is. Apparently one can never be too old to find this out (I’m 33 years old as I write this!). I have a sense of direction and God is continually answering my prayers. Truly God freely gives us His wisdom if we just ask for it!
I have been deliberating for years (9 years as we speak!) whether I should go to medical school or not. I have flip flopped about this decision a lot, with me doubting my abilities to succeed and being afraid of being away from family too much. I have had countless conversations with my husband about this and he has been very patient with my musings. He is behind me 100% in whatever path I choose. He has been my rock and I feel truly blessed to have him in my life.
I really feel God calling me to medicine, as I have for a long time. It scares the heck out of me, especially possibly relocating my family and all the hours I would be away from them if I embarked on this med school journey. But I have to trust that if this is what God wants me to do, He will give us the grace as a family to endure those challenging times.
So after many years of pondering (and many years working as a scientist in the pharmaceutical industry), I finally feel certain that a career change is in the works. I just still need some clarity on when this will be. In the meantime, I am scouring the internet and books, reading about other people`s experiences and learning from their challenges and successes. My husband is excited!! I am excited!! And I would like to share this unfolding journey with you! Stay tuned!
