"Love is the only thing that permeates the walls of bitterness, anger, and distrust."
Jaymee Leffler, General Education Student
TranscriptMy philosophy of healthcare is greatly based on the concept of redemption. Over and over throughout the Bible we see that Christ came to save souls and redeem the world. Not to condemn it. As a future nurse committed to this mission I have an opportunity to offer my patients this same sweet redemption I’ve discovered in my own life. In order to play a valuable part in the health field as well as Gods eternal kingdom, we must recognize Christ in his most distressing disguise. We must see Him in the faces of the hurt, wounded, neglected, and broken. And love them without reservation. To do this, reliance on God is a must. Treating people as they deserve to be treated with tenderness, genuine love, and individuality, is more influential then mere words of comfort. Love is the only thing that permeates the walls of bitterness, anger, and distrust. I’m realizing more and more that the simple act of loving God and loving people is my soul purpose in this life. I feel blessed beyond reason to have a platform in the field of healthcare to love people from. Treating their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs all at once, and glorifying God in the process.
