A Miracle Just in Time
I recently spoke to one of my cute friends about a miracle that had occurred in her life. I asked her to write it down so I could share it. It’s a good reminder that the timing of things is really in the Lord’s hands. He will work miracles as he’s sees fit for us. Thanks for the reminder Kenzie. “Ever since I was a little girl I knew I wanted to be a nurse, and when I started my freshman year at BYU that desire got even stronger! About three weeks ago, now a sophomore at BYU, I applied to the nursing program. This was my second time applying, and because I wasn’t nervous enough…they decided to only accept 49 students this semester, rather than their usual 64. On the Friday we were supposed to find out, I got the news that I wasn’t accepted. This meant I would either have to switch schools or change my major, and I didn’t like either of those options. I was sad and confused, but I didn’t doubt that the Lord would guide my steps and provide a way for me to accomplish all He had in store for me. But don’t worry; this story has a happy ending! Two days later, I received a call from the Nursing Advisement Center. One girl was going on a mission, and I was next on the alternate’s list! Obviously, I was shaking, crying, and jumping so much that I could barely accept their offer! Looking back, I am so grateful for the way things happened. I am grateful I didn’t get in at first because it gave me the opportunity to show my Heavenly Father that I would trust whatever He had planned. Getting into the nursing program truly turned into a miracle and helped me to see that our Heavenly Father is in our lives every step of the way. He knows exactly what we need and is so anxious to provide the way for miracles to happen. “ You’ll be a fantastic nurse! Trust me. I should know.
