The Testimony

A year ago, my local church asked me to share my story… The story of how I moved away from the warm, beautiful Caribbean to the unknown, frozen Tundra.

Besides being mic’ed, ignoring the multiple cameras, the sound tech, the interviewer, the lighting equipment, the director and the fact that I was sharing my story in a film studio, I felt at peace sharing my testimony. After I was asked to do this, I prayed intensely for the correct words and the precise manner to narrate the way the Lord wrote my story.

Nonetheless, I still can’t believe how quickly time flies. It seems like only yesterday I was in my senior year of college discerning which college I should go to. I never expected in a million years to end up in the state of Wisconsin, but I did… and it was the best decision of my life.

Wisconsin brought me closer to my faith, beautiful friendships, adventure and, mostly, peace. The kind of strength and peace that allows me to understand that every decision of my life has been written by Him, for me…

Now to Him who is able to accomplish far more than all we ask or imagine, by the power at work within us

Ephesians 3:20

God’s plan in my life has always been ten billion times better than what I expected. He has plans written for us that we cannot even fully grasp the extent of them. He always always always overdoes it. The Lord transforms our lives as we follow through His Plan and we accept, willingly, that there’s no better place to be.
