My current situation is watching my child take a diagnostic placement test for her new school so that A.C.E. curriculum can be ordered. It is a dream come true to have her in a Christian school using this curriculum. I was able to do three years of it and it was the most memorable of all my school years. The reasoning for being there wasn’t always positive in my case but God has again restored what the enemy tried to use for harm and brought us full circle into another blessing. Breaking the cycle is so much fun! My heart overflows with the goodness of God!!
I don’t know which I want to say more…”in your face Satan” or “thank you for the heartache that set me up for this blessing”. 😁
God ALWAYS has a plan!
So does the enemy so we must be on guard, and we must hold tight to the Word of God no matter what.
I am also currently a student. I knew God was calling me into ministry and to go back to school, so I went to our local Vocational Rehabilitation Center. I tried to apply for funding that is set aside specifically for people with disabilities to go back to school.
They did not know anything about Dissociative Identity Disorder and made no efforts to accommodate my needs or to educate themselves on how to provide assistance for me. They chose to move forward by practicing outside their scope of knowledge and it could have turned out to be a disaster for me.
But the devil is a liar!
I knew God wanted me to go back to school and that He would provide all my needs. I did my part, jumped through their hoops and did their testing to the best of my ability under the given circumstances. My therapist had explained my needs to them and was very supportive of my decision to continue my education. However, Vocational Rehab decided they could not sponsor me going back to school and bluntly told me that they were unable to sponsor me because I was not smart enough.
God always equips us to do what He is calling us to do!!!
I had applied at Liberty University and I was afraid but I was getting really good at doing it afraid. That was in December of 2015. I’m still a full time student and still making A’s on almost everything I turn in. I don’t say that to brag but to say if God calls us to do something outside of our comfort zone, it doesn’t matter how big or hard it is, we must do it afraid! He will absolutely equip us to complete the task successfully, and He will do it in a way that will bring Him glory and help others. In one year, I will graduate with honors and have a Bachelor degree in Religion with a minor in Christian Counseling.
God has big plans! Don’t ever let someone tell you that you can’t do something God is calling you to do!!
Do it afraid if you must, but do it!!
