Update: I survived that horrible long test! Whew! I am SO exhausted! As usual I am extremely hard on myself -I KNOW if I would have had the time to study, I could have done better but for not having enough time due to my job and other classroom commitments, I really can't complain! I got a fairly decent score - God is SOOO good! I give HIM ALL the glory! Now all I have to do is wait to see if my test scores - coupled with my GPA are good enough to get me into the program. I will find that out at the end of February - early March. Hopefully I will make it because I NEVER want to take that awful test again! :)
Thanks to all of you who took time out of your day to lift me up in prayer. It was such a wonderful feeling this morning to know that I was covered in prayer by my friends and family! I felt very calm during the test and I know that it will all turn out the way God wants it to.
I can't thank you enough for your continued support When I DO hear the results, I may have to make another blog just geared towards my student nursing journey......Stay tuned!
Today I will be taking the nursing pre-entrance exam...today will determine whether I make it into the nursing program in April. I have been so busy finishing up my finals for other classes, that I haven't been able to put much of an effort into studying for this test. The study guide is full of things that I have learned over the years, but in my distress - I feel I have forgotten everything! NOTHNG seems to make sense to me. I feel a peace about it all though - I KNOW that I am doing what I am supposed to be doing today. God will carry me through this!
Worst case scenario will be that I have to retake the test again in 6 months and I will miss out on making it into the program in the Spring, but I am NOT giving up! I will continue to press on because I believe with a bold assurance that THIS is what I am called to do and even though I am unsure of God's timeline, if it is HIS Will - I know it will happen in HIS time - not when I think it should happen! This is hard for me to type out - I truly want this more than anything else that I have wanted - but I am giving it all over to Him right now - to do with it what He will.
God's Will be done!
11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
Please pray for me today - I will be starting the test at 8:30am EST and finishing at 12:00
Thank you for lifting me up - I will post the results when I return.
