Loving God and Loving People Makes a Difference

I have an amazing job! I am a physician assistant (PA) at a family practice in Huntingdon. I get one-on-one time with patients who are sick and hurting every day. I only work 2-3 days a week, so my schedule allows me to stay in my field and still be with my kids, and more importantly, my boss has given me complete freedom to pray for my patients and minister to them in whatever way I think is appropriate. I often pray for my patients on my way to work and also look for the right opportunities to pray for them directly. The story below happened this summer and demonstrates that what you do today can make a difference in the lives' of people you may never know.
On my way to work one day, I started praying for an open door for God's presence to impact my patients that day. I had a lady on my schedule whom I had seen only one other time.
New Creation in Christ

2 Cor. 5:17 – “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come”
Three years ago, my life was a disaster. I was headed down a path of destruction: lying, partying, bad relationships, and depression looked me right in the face. My life took a complete 180 degree turn because God made me a completely new creation.
I grew up going to church. However, I never had an intimate relationship with God. Over the years, I began drifting further and further away from God. My life began to spiral out of control.
I had been in a serious long-term relationship with a guy in my second year of college. Our friends began to slowly change and the group we hung out with were heavily into the partying scene, drinking and drugs. It began as a casual activity, but developed into a lifestyle fairly quickly.
