My Story for God’s Glory:
God’s Strength in Med School

Mary Morgan Haire

Scripture: “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9

Response: Growing up in First Baptist Jackson, I was taught biblical truth and encouraged to hide God’s word in my heart from a very young age. Those promises from scripture that I learned as a child are something that I have carried with me through college and even now into medical school. As a student in a competitive environment, I sometimes find myself feeling inadequate and wondering if I am good enough or smart enough to succeed. However, because of the strong foundation of faith that was laid for me and the sufficient grace of the Lord, I have learned to rest in the promise that even though I fall short, He is always enough. It is when we fully grasp that we cannot do it on our own, that God is able to equip us in ways so that only He can receive the glory. For when I am weak in my own human strength, then I am able to be made truly strong through the power of the almighty God.
