Welcome to my online journal.
My name is Uju. I started this page at the end of 2017
I am a follower of Jesus, wife to a God-fearing man, mom to an intelligent and lovely daughter and professionally, I work as a research scientist (Ph.D.)
My desire to help others initially let me to pursue a medical degree, however I eventually chose to withdraw. Today, I am focused on figuring out how God has placed me to make the kind of difference that will impact generations, leaving a legacy that reflects the Power, Goodness and Faithfulness of my God.
My intentions for these pages is to reflect my journey as I continually uncover who I am in Christ in each season of my life.
My withdrawal from my medical program, my first pregnancy and the birth of my daughter kickstarted an awakening of self and a realization that I had not been truly connected to me. As traumatic as that experience was, it brought me to my knees and led me to Jesus. Growing up in a religious home, I have always known God, but I never quite understood Jesus’ Role. And the Holy Spirit, goodness, I was completely lost about His purpose.
On these pages I get to be unveiled bit by bit until the full Glory of my Holy, Powerful, Mighty, Faithful, Unwavering Father and King is revealed in me through my relationship with Jesus and His Holy Spirit working within and through me. ❤️
I am grateful for all of my life experiences thus far, painful and/or pleasurable, that led me here. It is in the fire that we are refined. Thank you Jesus for your amazing grace!
Each day I learn to focus on being & sharing God’s light & love with those around me.
Always remember, even when you do not get it right, tomorrow is another day to try again. 💖
