2 Chronicles 20:20
“Early in the morning they left for the Desert of Tekoa. As they set out, Jehosaphat stood and said, ‘Listen to me, Judah and the people of Jerusalem! Have faith in the LORD your God and you will be upheld; have faith in his prophets and you will be successful.’”
This is from a time in the Old Testament when Jehosaphat had a vast army marching towards him from Edom, so he brought together everyone in Judah at the Temple so they could all worship the Lord. He is encouraging them to stay strong in the Lord and trust His plan, providing many instances that God overcame the enemies of His devout followers. As we go into this year, some of us excited and just starting our vet school adventure, some going into their second and third years, but all awaiting eagerly the path ahead. We will all come across struggles as we move through this year, and the best thing to do is to take it to God. We need to trust that we are here for a reason and that everything is working for His plan.
We have truly been called to one of the best professions – we get to take care of the amazing creatures that God has placed on this planet! Being in veterinary school is hard and overwhelming, and it can be hard to see the light in the tunnel. Trust God and have faith that everything is going to turn out perfectly according to His plans for you. Also know that you have tons of us to turn to if you need some encouragement!
