"My brain was full of what ifs. The fear and worries I felt were caused by a failure in the past. Yes, you read that right, a failure. I took the NLE twice and I’m not ashamed because I’ve learned a lot from it and that was a call from God. I didn’t let that failure stop me from achieving my goals. Here I am now, moving forward with baby steps. But what’s important is, I am moving forward, with God. Who would’ve thought I can pass even if I answered the maximum number of questions of the NCLEX-RN? Before I took the exam, I dreamt of a big wave coming, a tsunami-like wave. Getting drowned on deep waters is one of my biggest fears, but when I saw that big wave approaching, I declared I’m gonna survive. Then the wave hit us and at the end of my dream, I was lying on the sand, but stood up and said, “I’m alive”. When I woke up from that dream, I searched for a spiritual interpretation about it. I even asked my Victory Group if there is someone who has a spiritual gift of interpreting a dream because I was really bothered. I realized my dream was a message from God. I answered 265 NEURON-BREAKING questions without anything on my stomach but my breakfast at 7am and a single banana eaten prior to my almost 5-hour exam. (My exam was scheduled at 11am, lunch time!) Can you imagine? My head was throbbing because I was hungry and my neurons were tortured. When I reached the 180th question, I asked God to calm my heart, guide my nursing instincts, and fight for me because I am doing my best and I am ready to face another chapter of my book. I believed He held my hand and we fought the battle together. Thank you Lord! We won the fight. And to God be the glory, honor, and praise! All victory is dedicated to Him! With David McGraw’s voice in my head, “I am grateful for all that I have, for all that I give, and for everything, and everyone in my life as this is the secret to ultimate success.”
LESSON: “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. BUT WITH GOD, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.” Matthew 19:26
I am one of the living proofs that God is there. You just have to give Him everything. God’s will in God’s timing.
Thank you to everyone who prayed for me. Thank you for believing in me. I made it because of all you. You are all parts of this success. ❤️
LESSON: Whatever you ask for in prayer, believe you have received it and it shall be yours. Mark 11:24"
