New Beginnings || When The Test Becomes A Testimony.

Monday, 29 August 2016
Guess who is picking up the ward coat and making use of her stethoscope again?  Yup Me!

I dedicated a whole post to my problem/test so it is only right that I do a post to share my testimony.

What testimony, you ask?
I finally got employment for my housemanship in Luth!

If you've been around here for a while, you would know of my seemingly unending job search after I graduated from med school. I blogged about the job hunt here and the many struggles that followed it here.

It was a really trying time that stretched for roughly a year and four months. The uncertainty of not knowing the next step to take, having to watch my classmates move forward while I seemed to be stuck in one place was a bit hard on me.

I'm not naturally a "worrier" honestly, but with all the hassle around me and knowing that my temporary license expires by the end of this year, It was hard not to worry.
My worrying phase didn't last all through the time thankfully. And even though, I wasn't quite out of the storm yet, at some point I stopped fighting the storm. Regardless of what happened, I was going to be at peace. I would move on, even if it meant quitting medicine.

I kept reminding myself though that God that started the good work in me will bring it to completion and that His plans are definitely one to give me a future!

And He didn't just do it for me!

He also gave me a spot in Lagos! (I really did not want to leave Lagos).
Even though, I'm not too excited about Luth because I would be with a whole new set of people that weren't my classmates but yesssssss, I'm still going to be in the grind of things and I'm thankful for that. I also trust that God has a reason for the delay and bringing me back to Luth, so we move!!
Looking back now though, I really wouldn't trade the one extra free year I got for anything. Thanks to that free time, I was in the right frame of mind to receive the inspiration when the Blog planner idea came to me, and also to work on other projects( start my blog consultation and review services), travel and grow my blog a bit further!

I've had the employment letter for about two weeks or so now and if you're signed up to my mailing list, you might already know that I've had to do some orientations and registrations within that time.

I officially resume work today and I'm honestly filled with mixed feelings.
Happy, sure! At last, I can get this compulsory one year work out of the way.
I'm not sure how I feel about having to get back to the stressful life of ward rounds,  night calls and insultive superiors and possibly not having much time for other parts of my life (like my blog), but I'm low-key excited to see what this new phase in my life brings to me - new friends? Maybe a new love for medicine? Who knows!

I've decided to take each day, one step at a time and continually speak "Phil 4:13" into my life everyday.

I'm also thinking of starting a new series in my Med Diary where I'll write about my house job experiences, either weekly or monthly. What do you guys think?
Its a hard knock life out here in the medical field.
Wish me good luck guys!
Also, lets connect!
P.S - I also want to say thank you to everyone for all the support and well wishes throughout the whole time! Some of you were constantly checking on me, some helped me speak to people and some prayed for me. Thank you so much! appreciate you all for real!!!! I pray that your restoration season shows up soon for you too.

Jeremiah 29:11

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Philippians 1:6

being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

  8. Amen. I'm so happy for you dear. After graduation I also had to stay at home for a year before going for NYSC. That part of my life was so tough, but I started blogging and my business during that period. I can't be more grateful for the delay. So girl, God's plan for us sometimes are way beyond our comprehension. If only we could see the testimony with the test, we would worry less and trust God more.
    I wish you all the best in LUTH (my hate for that place no get part 2).It will definitely end in praise.

  14. Awwww Yayyyyy!
    Congratulations Dr. Ikegbune, Oshey!
    I'm Super Happy for you :)
    I didn't even know it was up to 1 year and 4 months, thought it was 1 Year 2 Months Max, God is Good!!!
    I'm glad you see the good behind the waiting period, you had time to focus on your blog/growing your brand, you created a life-changing product that has travelled the world and you starting offering services based on your skills. Many people would have gotten depressed and given up on everything, I'm glad you didn't.
    Good Luck in this New Phase!!!
    Looking forward to your Med Diaries :)

  16. Finally! I'm so happy for you. I hope you actually testified in church, lol. What a testimony. Like you said if not for the delay, you wouldn't have had the time to accomplish so much in your personal life. So delay is not denial, God knows what he's doing and I'm sure by now you would be wishing you hadn't worried so much back then.Congrats once more.

    "No hurry in life" < I've read this on a few Danfos, and it's one of the things I tell myself to be patient.
    I know we can't help but worry and feel sad, but when the timing is right, things will happen!

  43. Finally! I'm soooo happy for you. Thanks for sharing your testimony, certainly one to learn from! God make things perfect at the right time... He will never make us suffer or wait unnecessarily because His plans for us are always good and on point! So go slay the medical world ... and the medical diary is a good idea... Thought of it once as I'm surrounded by doctors, but couldn't go through as I'm not a doctor... The stress would be too much trying to visit doctors to know what's up. So I'll certainly love to read, and know what's up from you. Greater things ahead for you girl! Just be positive.

  57. Congratulations Cassie! I'm so happy you finally got it. The insults really reduce during house job, at least in my experience. They grow some respect.
    Also, don't take crap, esp from ancillary staff. There are always a few people with some to dish out to a young (and female) doctor in a hospital. I beg you, don't take it. Just be faultless at your work and let em know you are not the one to mess with.
