yohoho! how are your guys doin! i wonder if anyone still come here n read once in a while.. mayb say, 10 visit a month of something.. haha..
anyway, i just thought that it's time to say a lil something here since it's been ages a post about my life here.. all these while were some random posts just on other stuffs =)
For a start, spring is here. Back home, we dont talk much about the weather, but here, well, most of the time it's the first thing you talk about. Flowers are blooming... grass are greener.. wind are getting less chilly..more lambs in the sheep pen too! i can always hear them baaaa-ing, esp at nights because they are scared. Just maybe a two minutes walk from my room, there is already a sheep pen...=) owned by Massey.
End year exams are lurking around the corner. been trying to get myself organised and catch up with some studies.. had semester test not long before and din reli do too well ay. =/ but anyway, the end is still for me to work hard for yes? yes!
i have not booked my flight back home yet. want to go home for cny. but currently waiting for my summer employment. got rejected by a few companies already but still waiting for a few more employers' response.
missing home always. what keeps me looking forward is just company of good friends around. ocf is keeping me happy busy and challenging me always too.
perhaps, i will post up post like this more frequently...with more specific things/events/ occasion to talk about. blogging this is like asking me (a guy), 'how are you?' after not seeing me for a year. and i end up talking about the weather. =)

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

When trial and tribulation comes, maybe they are here for a reason. Maybe through these hard times, we can learn something from it, making us stronger, better, more mature in person.
Or, maybe through these sticky situations, God wants us to unlearn something. Maybe it's the pride in us, the stubbornness in our heart, our prejudice, our timidity, the bitterness that we have...
James 1: 2-4 - consider it pure joy my brothers, wherever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

THERE WAS a time many years back, when the sea lion knew he was lost. In those days, he would stop every traveler he met to see if he might help him find his way back to the sea.
But no one seemed to know th way.
One he searched, but never finding. After years without success, the sea lion took refuge beneath a solitary tree beside a very small water hole. The tree provided refuge from the burning rays of sun, which was very fierce in that place. And the water hole, though small and muddy, was wet, in its own way. Here he settled down and got on as best he could.

What defines your life? What defines you? Who are you?
Switchfoot asks, "this is your life, are you who you want to be?"
For the past three days, I have been wondering about who I am after personality being doubted, true self being questioned. Indeed, who am I and to whom/what do I belonged to?
I looked around me, of what I owned, what I have worked my way through, what I have involved in, who have I made friends with, who do I spend my time with... so perhaps, that all defines me. Afterall, that's where I spend most my time in. Or maybe it's the number of friends I have on MSN/facebook/friendster/bebo? Maybe I should do up online profile? Perhaps it's status in my career in the future which starts now from applying for internship which are big companies? Perhaps my bank account defines me. I even signed up for paid-online survey thingie on the web to add extra few numbers in my bank account. But so what. It will all become like flowers that withers after its temporal blossom. Short-lived, momentous glory - but it all crumbles in name of meaningless. I don't want to look back from my deathbed and be proud of my bank account. Of course, I would love to be rich, but it's just not something worth dying and fighting my life for. There's got to be more. Something better.
I believe I'm created for a purpose. God was my Creator and is still guiding me. Perhaps I have not been on the right path...yet. I know so because my heart burns and yearns for something more. Maybe you don't know what I am talking about but its Lord's Spirit enables me to feel this way. Maybe someday you could tell me about it yourself.
I am define by who God is. His character and His plans for me. I am not defined by what people say about me. I am not defined by what people is expected of me. I am not defined by people's thoughts or opinions. I don't live by pleasing and making people happy (of course doesnt mean i go around offending ppl and acting Im boss). I am not saying all these in ignorance or arrogance. with humility. Not a statement to lash out, more like a reminder to self statements that I so often forget.
I acknowledged that I have not been always right or did the right thing all the time. I am sorry for the rash things I have done or said. But it goes deeper than that. It chases my heart everyday when Im not working towards it. Stacks up; stacks up so high yet Im so blinded. One day it just start toppling off. I am tired of going in circles or avoiding the same heart issues I kept for so long.
If you have some sort of situation like me; just pick yourself up again. God restores. Set focus on God again. Set priorities on how to add values to 'the' bank account. The one that matters of course.
