time

I think if I could earn 1 dollar for every minute I wasted doing unproductive things (facebook and youtube mostly), I would be a millionaire by now.

Aside from the time well and justly spent with friends and family, I’ve not been exceedingly productive studying for what would be THE most important exam of med school, which is just 1.5 months away. 6 specialties to cover. That leaves me with 1 week per specialty but some are just impossible to cover within 1 week (like surgery and medicine). >< oh well gg liao @@

Some photos on the stuffs I have been doing for the past week since returning home:

Met up with relatives and had a fun time with cousins. This is my 4th aunt’s dog Juno. She’s such a good sport but we were a bit harsh tbh. We played catch with her and intentionally threw the toys into the water to see if she would swim to get it! Look at those longing eyes haha

Went hiking at Cheras (Bukit Apek 阿白山) with relatives the next morning. This is Malaysia’s version of hiking: a rough sketch of the route and its approximate distance at each pitstop.

Us posing with Jalur Gemilang at the back! Great catch up with cousins esp Jian Lik (purple shirt far right), who’s from Canada whom I haven’t in 8 years. And despite us being at 15,18,20 and 23, it’s really fun to just crack lame jokes with them and stop acting like an adult.

But actually the directions along the path was very vague and we would not have made it without a random but frequent hiker who guided us throughout the 5.4km hike! And also thank God for the good weather that day. it had been raining so heavily for the past few days (and currently too)

Christmas eve party/primary and secondary school friends gathering @ Sue Ann’s place. Most of my friends are working now (I keep getting asked when will i finally graduate?) So nostalgic to talk with people who actually know my landline (house) phone number and remember all the silly things we used to do back in school.

Anyway need to hit the sack. Worship tomorrow. Been playing this song on loop for the whole day. Reminds me to seek strength from God and cast my burdens on Him!

In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. ~ 1 Peter 1:6-7

attended a joint university fellowship yesterday night and the topic was revival aka to reignite the burning fire in us, for Christ. Watched a video (click here) about a father carrying his disabled son through various marathons etc. it was actually the 2nd time watching the same video and a sudden realisation dawned, and it hit me hard.

I guess I thought I was doing pretty well, serving God in church, in fellowship and also learning more about Him through BSF.

But the video of a father carrying his crippled son reminded me of how broken I truly am. That i never deserved the love of a holy, righteous Heavenly Father, more so to actually say that I can do anything for Him. Anything I do can never compare with what He has done for me.

Because He carries me through life. and if that father could love his son that much, how much more does God love me?

But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith.  – Philippians 3:7-9

Lead me to the Cross – Hillsong

Savior I come
Quiet my soul remember
Redemptions hill
Where Your blood was spilled
For my ransom
Everything I once held dear
I count it all as lost

Lead me to the cross
Where Your love poured out
Bring me to my knees
Lord I lay me down
Rid me of myself
I belong to You
Lead me, lead me to the cross

You were as I
Tempted and trialed
You are
Te word became flesh
Bore my sin and death
Now you’re risen

To your heart
To your heart
Lead me to your heart
Lead me to your heart
