God’s Sovereign Plan

When Gabe Woodruff, a student in Cedarville’s Master of Science in Nursing – family nurse practitioner (FNP) program, got the call to serve his country, he didn’t hesitate. As a first lieutenant in the U.S. Army Reserves, he went with his medical unit to care for COVID-19 patients in downtown Detroit when the pandemic was at its worst this spring. 

The sudden shift and several months of separation was hard for Gabe, his wife, Kayla, and his family, but throughout the crisis, he was reminded that God could be trusted. “One of the things my wife and I would tell each other is if we trust God with our eternal security, why wouldn’t we trust him with our present circumstances,” he shares in the podcast. 

Throughout this unique time, Gabe has learned that God’s plans are better than his own. And he has developed a deeper appreciation for God’s sovereignty, especially in times of tremendous upheaval. 

Gabe’s unit treated overflow patients from Detroit hospitals in a 1,600-bed field hospital set up at the TCF Center, formerly Cobo Hall and Cobo Center, home to the North American International Auto Show, which Cedarville students have attended in the past to demonstrate their Supermileage vehicles

Gabe wants to bring his faith into his FNP practice, and he chose Cedarville’s M.S.N. – FNP program because of its strong biblical integration.
