I wanted to post this story to bring Glory to God and show his love and power for his children!
Backstory; 2018 was the worst year in my life. I suffered with depression and suicidal thoughts everyday; I would even pray for God to just end my life as I slept. However towards the end of the month, I realised I had lived a sinful life with sexual immorality and bad attitude so I gave up my life to God and welcomed Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit to come into my life and change me. It was the best decision in my life and I’m so thankful that God didn’t leave me; he continues to show his love and care everyday!
Fast forward to May, and my exams started running. I did well in school but I wasn’t very confident in any subject apart from History and English. I prayed to God that he would help and that Jesus would take control in every exam. My first exam was RP (Religion and Philosophy) and I struggled. I felt like I rambled on, my quotes weren’t strong and I didn’t structure the paragraphs correctly ,yet I carried on. That happened for most of my exams. I had a mental breakdown at home because of maths and my suicidal thoughts kicked in again, yet I still prayed.
At the end of all the exams in June, I needed guidance and help so I left it in God’s hands until August. Putting my faith in God helped me be more cheerful and trust in God more so even the night before the results day, I was calm. Before I went to bed, I asked God to guide me to a Bible quote. The quote was 1 Chronicles 28:20. It helped me to be calm and believe that I would get amazing results.
Today was results day. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t a bit scared but I still remembered the quote and had faith in God. And what did God do? Uplift me! I achieved through God’s grace 2 A*, 4 A’s, 2 B’s and 1 C (that was in Spanish and that was the highest I could achieve because I did foundation. However, I gained my EBacc which is a certificate for passing a language and humanitarian subject and it helps get into good universities) and one of the A*’s was in RP.
Only through the grace of God was I able to pass my exams and even get A’s because I thought I failed everything and now I’m able to take the subjects I need to continue my journey to study medicine.
I’m sorry if this was long but I hope it helps people to remember to trust God no matter what because God knows what you want and need, and he will supply it (Phillipians 4:19) HALLELUJAH!!
