My Dream Come True

In August 2007, I started my study through the CAPS program at Lee University to pursue a B.S. Degree in Christian Ministry (Pastoral Studies).  I actually started my registration at another college and was in preparation of furthering my A.A.S. Degree in Business Administration to pursue a B.S. Degree in Accounting.  However, God had different plans for my life and how it all happened is really like a blur to me.  As I followed the path God laid out before me, He allowed my dreams to come true.  It was my dream to go to Lee University after graduating high school, but I never saw that dream fulfilled.  I knew my family couldn't afford to send me away to college, so I placed that dream on the back-burner so to speak.  However, God never ceases to amaze me.  Psalm 37:4 (NIV) says "Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart".  That is exactly what God did for me. 

I didn't pursue a deeper education to become "somebody special", I am already "somebody special" in the eyes of my Father.  I started this journey to pursue a deeper knowledge of God's Word and to learn as much as I could to be an effective disciple of Jesus Christ.  In the first few months, God began to deal with my heart and ask things of me I felt I was not capable or equipped to do.  I still feel I am not, which is good, because as long as I do what I "CAN" do, God will make up for what I "CANNOT" do.  I accepted the call of God upon my life to minister His Word and it is my heart's desire now to do all that He requires of me.  I Can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (Phil. 4:13)  My next goal is to obtain my ministerial credentials through the Church of God.  As I walked across the stage on May 7, 2011 I could feel my Heavenly Father looking down upon me with pride, knowing my dream had come true.  I couldn't have done it without Him, and I know I wouldn't have even been in the program to begin with had it not been for His guidance in the process.  My promise to God :   "Where YOU Lead Me I WILL FOLLOW!!"  To God Be the Glory!!!
