    Having a personal relationship with God will or should, shine through you without a word.. Meaning, in a secular nursing job, the way you care for your patient and their family will show to all who come in contact with you. God has opened the way on many occasions for me to share my faith.

Many people who watched me at work in the Emergency department would comment, "you're a Christian aren't you?" and I would simply answer "yes." Occasionally a Patient would ask me for a Bible verse as manyhave a Gideon Bible in their bedside lockers. At these times I opened their Bible at Psalm 91 and handed it back saying, "I am not permitted to talk about this, so you read and keep this for it for yourself. Ask God to open the way, and He will.

    I have the same desires as far as being in full time ministry...but i feel God has called me to be a nurse. That in of itself is a ministry like no other. I know I am in Gods perfect will which is pleasing and sweet to my soul. My cry is for God to use me as an instrument, and he does that by me being a nurse. There are plenty of times when working as a nurse I am lead to minister in different ways as the spirit of God leads me.Loving on Him and being close and intimate with the Father is my whole hearts desire. Best wishes in all that you do, may everything you touch prosper.
