But Now

Lent is a time to reminisce the death and resurrection of Jesus, and most especially to be reminded of Jesus’ love for you and me.

Yes, this week overflows with Jesus’ love!!*

I’m very grateful to God that what can bring us closer to Him is not about how good we are nor about the good we do.

But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ. –Ephesians 2:13

Our sin (failures, hopelessness) was great but indeed God’s love was greater.

God cannot stand being separated from us to the point of sending His Son Jesus who willingly gave His life for us. And when He rose again, He gave us access to God – access to true love, joy, contentment, security, hope and freedom. Jesus did not remain dead, but He resurrected! He is alive, friends!!! Our Jesus can hear and speak. Our Jesus is near, nearer than our breaths. Even in the lifeless of moments we encounter, none of it will be able to withstand the Life we have in us ❤

We were once hopeless, but now we have hope.

We were once broken, but now we are made whole.

We were once hurt, but now we are healed.

We once faced a day senseless, but now in Jesus we live with purpose, looking forward to living because of His great promises.

 

 

*P.S. God’s love overflows everyday~!!

Do not grow weary

In the midst of doing what I was supposed to do which was to study for my exams, in the middle of the week where everything should maintain its consistency, I felt exhausted having to exert energy for the past days.

It’s difficult to move forward when the strength remaining in you is barely enough.

What encouraged me was this verse:

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. -Galatians 6:9

We are always working for something. And when we continue to keep going and doing what is worthy, there will be a sweet fruit in the end.

From whom will we get our strength?

Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strengththey shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. -Isaiah 40:30,31

 

Whether it may be in our campuses, work or journey of faith, we can always approach God for the renewal of our strength. God will sustain you and give you strength afresh. 🙂

Practical Exams: The first dip on practicing as a clinician

Learning theories and applying them are two different things. The latter takes you to stand from where you’re sitting and move pieces together. That’s the picture of our practical exams which felt nerve-wracking and exciting! It was learning a new dimension where I’m not just a Speech-Language Pathology student but I was there to be a clinician which means exposing myself with what I’ve been taught. Confidence is key they say. Before doing our practicals, I deeply inhaled and thought ‘This was it, here comes the therapist and that’s me’. I felt cringey on the inside because I gotta act out in front of my professors, and interns who served as our patients. 😆 Social skills are important here and I’ve gotta practice more of that haha. Case history taking and administering formal tests were challenging but being there in the exams area had me thinking like I’ve got to do what I gotta do and there’s no turning back. 🙃🤘😆

Moving on! Have you heard of Lucas the Spider??! He’s such a cute spider! ☺️ How I wish all spiders were as cute as him 🤗 I love his big eyes and voice hihi. If you haven’t seen him, go to Lucas’ youtube channel!! *and have yourself re-watch for the nth time*

So how was your week? 🙂

I’m grateful to God for the strength he gave me and I would want to share with you what kept me going these past days… on my next post!

When I am anxious
I think of You
My mouth speaks of Your Name
My heart yearns to sing for You
You are my mind’s delight
My sigh of relief
The shoulder I rest upon
The hand that keeps me steady

There will come a time when everything seems like a mistake

A puzzle piece that misfits

A shattered glass that can’t be put back together

 

With all around you spinning round and round

Regrets come and pull out of you

Questions that were yesterday’s answer

On what you did

On that day

In that moment

It was perfect

It was meant for you

 

If it weren’t for yesterday, you wouldn’t be here today, would you?

Maybe if you weren’t back there then you could have arrived

 

Please don’t tell her it was a mistake

If it were

May the crossroads lead her to the right path

 

Please tell her that where she’s standing is where she should be now

May this be a portion of her great joy ahead

Prayer and Fasting 2018

My heart is full and dancing in joy because of God’s great love! For the past five days, our church had an annual Prayer and Fasting – a posture of humility and dependence on God before anything else as the year starts.

“In Christ” is the theme of this year’s Fasting wherein we studied the book of Ephesians. The Book of Ephesians tells of our new identity in Christ and the life we are to live as Christians. It’s amazing how I learned that in Jesus Christ, we are blessed with every spiritual blessing, sons and daughters, chosen, forgiven, lavished with grace and sealed with the Holy Spirit. Who we believe ourselves to be will determine our actions. And this is who we are in Christ – we are loved and victorious thus we can face everyday with a confident and unshaken heart. We’ll encounter hardships this year but because God is with us (Emmanuel), we won’t falter. We hold on in His Word so we can stand firm!

I’m so grateful that I have encountered the Lord for the past five days of Prayer and Fasting ❤ And these encounters will grow as I continue to seek Him everyday!

I’d like to share to you my top 3 faith goals for the year:

  1. Spiritual revival and to experience God anew
  2. Provision for my daily needs (especially in school)
  3. To travel abroad with my family ^_^

 

Let’s seek Him for the rest of 2018 and be in faith that God hears our prayers! Don’t close your eyes for breakthroughs are coming!
