My Faith Testimony

Its funny what a difference a year can make in twelve months. I didn’t know that a year from now I was going to be a transferred student at Florida Atlantic University and be engaged. Last year on September 15, 2017 was my last year as being a student at Florida A&M University. I know you are thinking well why did you transfer? To be honest I wasn’t happy being away at that school for the past three years. As summer 2017 went by it felt like nothing was here for me at the school anymore. It felt like I was just there for a season and my work was done. I understand as Christians we faced trails and tribulations in life so that God can make us stronger and have patience. Gish! When will these trails end? I was going through a tough season mainly through out my school year. From having roommate issues that I stated in my previous blog and being removed from my education courses. I didn’t have peace at all. I couldn’t take it anymore until I cried out to God one night in my apartment room.

On September 9, 2017 which is actually my birthday I woke up in the middle of the night and I vented to God. I told him the truth of what was on my heart, which he already knows. He probably was just waiting for me to speak to him about my problems. I remember ending my prayer off as “Jesus what is your will you have for my life?” Then I went backed to sleep and I had a dream. I was home in my apartment and I walked inside  a room with my old college roommates. One of the girls asked me to come here and she said to my other roomates “Well are you going to ask her?” I’m staring at all three of them wondering what do you want to ask me. One of my roomates asked me “What are you doing here?” “You don’t fit in with us?” Can I be honest everything she said was so true. I truly did not fit in with those girls at all. I’m asking God is this you speaking through her? The next scene in the dream I was on the phone with my mother and I told her what my roomates had said. She stated well if you’re not happy being there maybe you should come back home. I’m like what, I put so much work of getting here. I just want peace and happiness. A few days later I spoke by faith that this will be my last year being at this school. A few weeks later I packed my belongs and I moved into another dorm.

Through out the Fall semester of 2017 I was being tested from every direction. I was still fasting and praying so, that I can definitely hear from God that this is his will. So many things was happening as the semester ended. I recently got engaged and I was receiving the proper steps to transfer schools. In January 2018 I applied to FAU and mid February I got accepted. I’m kept telling myself “Have faith and good deeds God has everything under control.” He sent a few christians friends in my life to encourage and pray with me for my faith move. Here I am a year later all of my credits and scholarships were able to transfer over except one class. Even though I have more responsibilities to take care of I’m happy and I have peace by the grace of God. Brothers and sisters if God is telling you to do something please be obedient to him. The other side of obedience is so beautiful and amazing. I hope my faith testimony encourage you and God bless.

Encouraging scriptures:

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 
 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.
James 1:2-3
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
James 1:5
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Jeremiah 29:11
