Period of Refinement

Posted in Friends on November 28, 2008 by jiunnli

Yay, finals are finally over! Gone, gone, puff! Today I was left with a few choices on how to celebrate the start of my 3- month freedom. First option, I could go to STYLO X with Christy and her boyfriend. Second, I could go up to Genting and have a drink in Starbucks with my housemates and then come back on the same night, or….CG! Without much hesitation and also due to lots of other obvious factors, I decided to go to CG. Indeed it was a good choice. I was terribly blessed =P. Through the prompting of the spirit and all, going to Cg tonight really has showed me how God uses different people to approach me and ways that are really mysterious, to speak to me, As I’ve suspected, God is really not keeping quiet about my current situation at all =)

 

Uncle Hwai Teik showed us a documentary. (we adjourned to TRAC gathering after cg potbless). This documentary was about this guy, Nick, who was born without both his arms and legs. Through his life testimony and his sharing, I suddenly felt my problems seems so small and tiny. One verse that captures me was, yes the ever-so-common Jeremiah 29:11 but that’s not it. What truly capture me were the verses after 11, that is ‘Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me and when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the Lord.

 

Amazing isn’t it?=)

 

These verses never really struck me before but they sure do now. I am learning to seek, trust and surrender all to God especially during this season of my life. I believe now is truly the time of refinement for me. The refinement of my character and as a person. Sure, I have a clearer mind after my exams therefore its gives me more room to really ponder and learn. I am not going to push it as the process is slow and painful but it has that refining influences on us. This journey is also full of uncertainties but one thing for sure, God knows what is best for us. God will grant you the desire of your heart if it’s both part of His will and in His timing, if not, that’s because He is preparing you for something better and greater =)

 

And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and called according to His purpose.’

 

We are more than conquerors =)

 

Goodnight!

Going for dim sum tomorrow with two of my girls =)

My hopeful beginning

Posted in Friends, My stuff on November 28, 2008 by jiunnli

Last two weeks were crazy. Was a extremely difficult time for me.

When hope seems so far away but nevertheless, God is the source of our strength, joy and hope.

I will always remember that.

 

3 words I learnt from this lesson.

 

Trust

 

Freedom

 

Patience

 

Thanks for all the prayers =)

Things are starting to look better!

I closed my Friendster accounts recently. Too many junk mails sent to my inbox so I decided to terminate my account, finally!

 

So before I did so, I saved my photos from the album and yeah, they really bring back all the fond memories during the Friendster era.

 

So enjoy! =)

Aargh, I need to focus!!~

I got 3 more weeks, in fact less than that, before I can actually go home. Finals coming soon (in less than 5days and I can still sit here, happily blogging away)  Hehe, probably because I am already making plans for my holidays. Cant wait!! =)…

Darn, really don’t feel like studying tonight……

I can’t wait for my next meal mann. Am really hungry now, but I am more sleepy than hungry. Went to the library early in the morning. I find it so hard to concentrate because it was blardy noisy. Jared called and he thought I was out somewhere eating or something. Yeap, it was THAT noisy!

Seen ms woo too. She is so kind and helpful during consultation. Now ‘budgeting’ seems so much easier! Phew…

Do not put your confidence and depend on the people around you, rather look to God for He is your one and only Helper. Again, somebody failed me. This time it was very much my fault and was triggered by me I have to say. Don’t know why the hurt is still there despite everything. I guess this is the time for me to learn of some of the deeper issues that are needed to be settled.

Celebrated Jessica’s birthday last tuesday. Ms BL was so generous and treated all of us. Really, she shouldn’t have. Played a game of Reversi with Jovy while waiting. Jovy is really cute. You know why? She was confused with the color of her tiles throughout the game but that did not stop her from winning!hehe..smart girl she is. =)

I really don’t feel like studying lor…

Love Simpsons. Trying to catch up with all the episodes during my studies in between. This is one way I keep my sanity.

Really feel like packing for my trip to Australia. Can’t wait to get away and meet my sister. I am only going to be there for a month anyway. Will be back in Jan. Hmm, everyone seems to be thinking that I am leaving for my studies in Australia..sorry if I have mislead you guys by any chance=P

Oh yeah thanks for the bible verse =)

“And now, dear brothers and sisters let me say one more thing as I close this letter. Fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and right. Think about the things that are pure and lovely and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” Philippians 4:8. There were many times you’ve shared great and amazing things with me. Please don’t stop.

Mummy called and she said she might come to KL and accompany me while I take my exams. Woo hoo! That’s exactly what I need =(.

Anyone wanna go Boston? I wanna go to Boston. Boston is awesome during autumn and it gets worst when it snows.  =) 

Christy invited me to some new club opening in Starhill last friday. I was so looking forward to go as she is performing during the launch. Then, I decided not to, because I have my finals coming up and really, I din wan to ditch my books but it’s good that I take this time to catch up with her. I also need my break la. That Friday was bad. I had a long day studying, things happened, spoilt my mood and felt super de-motivated that I couldn’t continue reading, so I said, why not? Finally met one of her friend, Andy Kho who took this lovely photo of both of us. One of the best photo of us together=)

 

ish, why la why my eyes so small!~
