“Then the eyes of the blind will be opened, and the ears of the deaf will be cleared. Then the lame will leap like dear, and the tongue of the speechless will sing. Waters will spring up in the desert, and streams in the wilderness. The burning sand will become a pool, and the thirsty ground, fountains of water. The jackals’ habitat, a pasture; grass will become reeds and rushes.” – Isaiah 35:5-7
This passage is an amazing reminder that God offers amazing blessings to us, which are very challenging for us to see and acknowledge, especially in the business of veterinary school. It’s easy to see the huge miracles like the blind gaining their site, cancer being cured, or the deaf hearing once again. It is much harder to see the smaller miracles of a friend or vet med sibling offering a small present in our mailbox at the exact moment we need some encouragement, or even an unexpected face smiling at you in the grocery store. God touches our lives in wonderful ways each day. So, in moments where we are feeling particularly overwhelmed with studying, let us refocus on God and remember that He has a plan that we can only see a small glimpse of. That we are made to be here, and we can do all things with Him leading our lives.
