Step 1 - In My Site...

Okay now that I have less than 30 days to complete my biological science portion of my medical degree, I registered for Step 1 exam today.  What a great feeling!  Step one is the first licensing exam for medical students in the USA.  It's probably one of the most important exams of our life. My step 1 score is a gateway to my desired specialty. (Rev 3:8) I know that GOD has opened doors for me, that no man can close, so I have to do my part and prepare accordingly.  I know this is just the beginning and a lot of work is going to have to happen between now and my actual exam date, but it's great to know that I'm moving in that direction.

Sometimes, it may seem like your dreams, goals or pursuits are so far in front of you that you just can't even imagine them really coming to pass.  But, will, if you don't give up.

Don't give up on creating your world and all that you wish it to be.
Don't give up when challenges arise and it seems to be blocking your view.
Don't give up when you feel like if one more thing happens, you are going to SCREAM!

Hold on..change is coming..STAY in FAITH..CONTINUE TO BELIEVE..IT'S WORTH THE FIGHT!  We are fighting not against flesh and blood, but principalities that would cause US to faint...We shall reap OUR  REWARD, if WE faint not.....

I was so excited today that I got the chance to speak to a young man that has a desire to become a doctor, but felt burnt out.  I shared with him some things..then I said, "it is better to let your dream inspire you now to move forward, than to haunt you later."  Let your story ring to the next generation that you strove with all that was in you to push forward and to dare to believe...AND GOD made the difference...I know from where my help comes from..It definitely comes from the due season, your dream will manifest.  It can be done...just one step at a time....

I'm not even trying to say that obstacles will not come...the question is what are willing to do to get around them?  Let your actions line up with your words, for know that greater is HE that is in you than he that is in the world.  Don't look to government, family, friends, although support is nice to have, but look to your Creator, GOD ALmighty that gave you the dream, the desire, the calling.   HE will put you in the right place, right time and right circumstances for all the pieces to the puzzle to come together.  So, endure the long hours, late nights and perhaps the tears..but, if you faint not you shall reap....I'm a witness...

Step 1 exam I'm ready for you...February 2014....

Now, go live your dream!


  1. Nicely said. Good luck with Step I.
    I am considering med, a career I could have pursue in my early 20s, but I did not, now in my late 40s it seems so difficult. I am praying for wisdom.

  2. I am reading this from the library in the hospital where I practice as an RN. I am 41 years old and I would be starting med school next year! I confess that I have often considered my age, but I prefer to die with a smile knowing that I gave life the best that I could, than to go grumpy with regret of not doing because of fear or useless considerations. Like you, my faith rest in God, cause I know that it is only through Him that I can achieve this dream, this burning desire that He has placed in me. I know that the challenges would surely come, but I also know that God has set me on this path, so He shall provide for me every step of the way. Thanks again for the blog. May God bless you as you journey on the path less traveled.

  3. I am 41 years and would be starting med school next year. This was strong encouragement to me. I am an RN here in Trinidad and Tobago for the past 3 years, but I had the desire to proceed in the direction of medicine. I have my family, so I know that it would be challenging. But God did not give me a spirit of fear. So by the grace of God I shall begin, go through and achieve my Jesus name! Thank you once again

  4. Congratulations!! I have been following your blog for a few years now.. and I am finally poised to get my undergraduate degree in Biology complete and take the next step to applying to Med school.. you have been a true inspiration all this time..can't wait till you are done!!
