God is my life

NC StudentsKayla is a nursing student in our NCF chapter at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. In a recent discipleship meeting, I asked Kayla, "How do you bring together your relationship with the Lord and your life in nursing school?"

At first Kayla struggled to answer my question. "I don't think of it that way. God is my life," she said.

I knew that God had transformed Kayla's life in big ways over the past year, and I was overjoyed to hear how she responded to my question. Her passion showed through her joyous tears as she explained her relationship with God as a junior in nursing school.

Kayla continued, "God isn't compartmentalized anymore. My time is His. I used to view my schedule as mine and I believed that I was in control. Now I see my time as His and I organize my life to reflect eternal values. I trust Him to take care of me. Sometimes that even means taking a break from studying to care for my roommate who isn't a Christian."

It is because of God that Kayla can have this perspective. She told me later in the conversation that God's work in her life had brought her heartache for a time, but it was the best thing that could ever happen to her!

I'm praising God that Kayla said "yes" to Jesus' call. I believe Kayla will do great things for God's kingdom, both at UNCG as a student and on into her career as a nurse.
