My first semester back in the college universe is complete and here is how it ended:
Biology (my greatest challenge by far): 94% A
Chemistry 96% A
Psychology 96% A
I'm attaining the unattainable (or what I thought was unattainable). I guess with determination, motivation and dedication, you really can do anything you put your mind to. It sure wasn't easy and I still have a long road ahead, but I feel confident that this is what I was meant to do.
I know God didn't tear my life to pieces for no reason. I'm actually feeling like I am in a good place right now. I have hope and faith. That's a good feeling.
My next semester starts tomorrow. Anatomy 1 - I just spent the last two hours studying. Organic chemistry starts next week. I feel that anatomy will be my biggest challenge, just from the fact that it's only a seven week course so I anticipate it will be very fast-paced, packed with information. However, it looks very interesting and enjoyable so as long as I can stay on top of things and manage my time wisely, it should go well!
I have been receiving lots of signs from Matthew lately. There's nothing more comforting than that. I feel very at peace with my "situation" and I feel that I am healing well. I have my family, friends (and even people I don't know well) and God to thank profusely for all the support and prayers that have brought me to this point.
Like I said, I know God has given me a purpose and exactly what that purpose is will continue to be revealed as the days, weeks, months and years pass. Life isn't always easy but it sure is beautiful.
