God Came Through Ephesians 3:20-Style!
I was definitely lost and without hope in this world when a loving Way Corps believer shared some fantastic Biblical truths with me. God saved my life through the Word I heard and readily believed from The Way Ministry classes and teachings. To learn that Jesus Christ came that we might have life and have it more abundantly thrilled my soul! Knowing that God loves me unconditionally and that in Him is NO darkness at all were only a few of the truths that set me free.
Throughout the thirty plus years I’ve stood with the ministry and continued to grow with God, He has done many amazing feats in my life. One such incident occurred when my young daughter was diagnosed with a condition that would require a serious surgery. I forced my mind over and over to remember and believe the truths I had been taught. Because of my relationship with my heavenly Father, I knew He would carry us through and that we would be victorious. A coworker had shared that her mother had this same procedure and ended up blind as a result! Fear tried to take over, but I knew that my God was not going to let that or anything else happen to my little girl. I believed for the best possible outcome, drove my mind to the Word I’d been taught, and engaged my fellowship coordinator to pray and believe with me.
God came through Ephesians 3:20-style! During a presurgery visit, the doctor was astonished to find no evidence, of any sort, that she ever had an issue. The x-rays were 100 percent clear. I was believing that the surgery would be a success, but God went WAY above and beyond that. What a loving and powerful God we serve.
It is such a blessing to experientially know God as my heavenly Father. I am forever thankful to Him for rescuing me and am excited to see His power manifested more and more in the days and years to come.
Inspired to Pursue a Nursing Career
Ever since high school, I wanted to become a nurse. Right after high school, I entered a trade school and became a surgical technician and then began working. That same year, I took our ministry’s Foundational Class, learning about the Bible for the first time in my life. Right after finishing the class, I received my first Way Magazine in the mail. That particular issue contained in-depth accounts of believers participating in the ministry’s yearlong outreach program. I devoured that issue.
Although I had been accepted into the pre-nursing program at a New England college, I decided to change my route and participate in an outreach program that focused on serving God’s Word to those who were hungering and thirsting for God. Thanks to our ministry’s many resources, I was able to study and understand God’s Word. Inspired through growth in God’s Word, I became a household fellowship coordinator, got married, and had two children.
After a few years, I was again inspired to pursue a nursing career. My husband and I discussed the cost of my schooling. We were uncertain that we could afford it, but I was determined I could accomplish it debt-free. With continued prayer and believing and the promises of God’s Word in mind like Psalms 37:4 and 5: “Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass,” I did the diligent work of discovering all the private and public scholarships that were available, including federal and state grants. I worked part-time at the hospital and received tuition reimbursement. I filled out many applications, I wrote many letters, and I made many follow-up phone calls to my school’s financial-aid office as well as many other offices willing to provide funds. As a result, I was able to pay for tuition, books, and supplies and had enough left over for child-care costs for our preschooler. God abundantly supplies our need. God’s Word works!!
