Hey. Welcome to my blog.
I’m Renate, a fourth year med student in South Africa, writing about the things that I see and the things that I think about and the things I feel.
This blog was silent for almost a year while I battled with depression and wondered about my future. It was tough. Very tough.
I almost failed third year medicine.
I’m still afraid that I will sink back into the depression. That fourth year will be harder than third year was.
And yet, I also look forward with hope. Because my depression has taught me to cling to God for strength. To cast my fears and my worries on Him, and trust Him to carry them for me.
These pages are a record of His faithfulness in my life. How God is taking a weak and afraid med student and molding her into the doctor… and Christian that He wants her to be.
