I Get Up Again

"I get knocked down but I get up again".....I can hear that song playing in my mind.

Yes, I failed out of RN school. But praise God I was accepted to another! Sometimes the smallest steps are the hardest ones to take. I've simply had a transfer.

It hasn't been an easy transition and I haven't handled things as well as I should, or could have but I made it. The Lord knows my future even when I don't. I'm so thankful for His mercy and grace on me.

"You are valuable because you exist. Not because of what you do or what you have done, but simply because you are." –Max Lucado

I praise Him that it is not of anything I could or should do, but simply because I am. I am feeling as though a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. Snuggled up resting in His arms.

Thank-you every one for your prayers.

Dear Jennileigh,
I wish I could describe how pleased I was to see this heading in my Google Reader on the dashboard of my blogs. I am so very happy for you.

I really like getting your post in my Google Reader. There have been other times I've been impacted by reading just the heading of your blog, even when I don't have the time to read the post at the time.

The one that had the most impact on me, personally, was about letting go of friendships that God had already taken out of your hand. There have been times where I think there is something I can do to make things work out, but this reminded me that God sees the big picture and maybe I shouldn't. Thanks, because that post came at a particular time that was very significant to me. Debbie Seiling

Dear Jenileigh,

I'm so glad to hear that you've been selected at another school. I feel that God has things for a purpose, and this is going to be a much better fit for you, where He can use your talent and dedication even more.

There have been times in my life where I just gave up, but you didn't. Your perserverance is inspiring to us. Debbie Seiling http://bible-passages.blogspot.com and http://christian-overeaters.blogspot.com
