it's one of those times when i get plagued by ultimate restlessness.

there's so much i can do, non-uni related, yet i find myself not wanting to do anything.

perhaps it's time to retreat to the slum?

perhaps the busyness is good: keep me on my toes, at the edge at all times.

no time for restlessness...

i seriously wish Mandy is here.


God, pls take this away from me...

i wanna go "yay!" but it's more of "yay."

my assignment's finally done. the one tt no one understood why is due during the holiday. explains why as everyone started rejoicing as early as last thurs, i wasn't too enthusiastic. i still had to carry this heavy stone. ugh.

now that it's done, i wanna go to Naili's! I wanna have a cuppa in Starbucks Mont Kiara! KTZ calls out my name and man! a night drive round KL city! how's that?

wait a minute...

I'm in Dunedin.


no wonder my heart is nowhere to be found...

Psalm 28:6-9

Praise be to the LORD, for he has heard my cry for mercy.

The LORD is my strength and my shield;

My heart trusts in him, and I am helped.

My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.

The LORD is the strength of his people,

a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.

Save your people and bless your inheritance,

be their shepherd and carry them forever.

angels = God's messengers

there was this heaviness in my heart i couldn't explain. i wanted to just "get over it" but i couldn't. each time i went to God i just ended up in tears. what's wrong with me?

i cried out to God and i wished He's here to comfort me. A God that's tangible, a God that can hug me and calm me down...

felt like i was gonna cry forever, but i guess my tears did run dry and my energy got drained. i finally subsided. quite relieved because i had wanted to stop and get on with my assignments etc.

as i stepped out of my room, i had a little surprise at my door...

i picked up the daisy wrapped in nice purple and red paper with a ribbon on it and looked for a sender's name... but all i could find was an empty envelope that says:

i started tear-ing all over again. this time, they are tears of comfort, tears of gratitude with an overwhelming sense of knowing my God heard my cries, my God knows wat's going on and my God loves me...

a thought

so much has happened amidst the stillness of the dunedin atmosphere. not that dunedin is particularly quiet these days, what with the regular weekly drinkingS n partying going all around campus. It occurred to me how student life can be as mundane, as dull, as silent and non-engaging if you would allow it to be. Really, u're involved as much as you want. It feels like as though a bomb can drop on Otago and yet u can be unaware about it. Or maybe u kinda know it's happening in the background but it doesn't really concern you.

Is it really the kiwi culture or is it just part of Uni life everywhere? You can have eternal life, life in abundance in the fullness of Christ, yet, well~ it doesn't seem very important does it? Esp not in the midst of assignments, tests etc... so what does matter now is... keeping cool, finishing your degree, some fun times with friends and hopefully a good career? and when time comes, the right partner comes along and erm... dream dreams together and raise kids? i dunno where i'm going here but the question i'm driving at is... WHAT'S THE POINT?

I'm not intentionally wanting to advertise for Elim's International outreach come 12th Aug. Though i do think it's gonna be awesome, seeing how the ppl are putting in sooooo much effort (u guys are awesome!). not just in terms of time n effort n energy, but also the prayers too~ I know God will truly bless their efforts to honour Him in this.

Meanwhile, though i'm not technically very involved with this outreach event, other than just supporting them with prayers, this question of "what's the point?" has been highlighted to me through a life of someone tt i'm getting to know better. God has weaved our paths together even more tightly recently and my heart goes out to this person. I long to share the Hope that I have in Jesus and the life in abundance in Him. Life is more than graduating, having that career and that special someone with whom u raise your family with. what happens if there's no awesome, promising career? what if, there's no special someone? I'm learning to trust God with all these (Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you -Matt 6:33) and I'm really thankful that my confidence that everything will work out in due time comes from God because I know my God is a faithful God. but what hope, what confidence do those that don't know Him have?

i meant to write something totally different in this post and i've no idea how i ended up with this. i had wanted to give an update for the past couple of weeks but... i guess there's another time for that. i pray that my heart will continue to be burdened for those that dunno Him. even with the many riches the world has, they don't give u the security of a good job, a wonderful spouse and a happily-ever-after life. Not that coming to know God will give you those but well, at least I have hope in Him. He knows what I need and really, all I ever need, is HIM...

May I be burdened to share this hope, this love that comes from Christ...
