but as for me, i will trust in You

life has been quite a struggle. but it has been a struggle where i know i'm not alone, but where i am assured that God is with me.

life in form 6 is pretty crazy, especially for someone like me. whose time management skills is super bad. help me, Lord.

but of course life is not all that bad. yeah, i may be struggling at the moment, but one thing i've learnt through the struggles i've been through in my life is that in those times of desperation, God is so real and that there is never a situation that's too big for Him to bring us through. such a wonderful hope, yes?

2 Corinthians 12:9
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.

God's grace IS enough for me. He is all that i need. :)

back to the blessings He has given to me throughout these past weeks, one of the biggest things that God brought me through to remind me how there is so much more to life than just my own and my own plans, God has a super BIG BIG BIG picture than what our human minds could ever imagine!! He did this during the Malaysian Youth Prayer Gathering on the 19th July 2008 in Kluang, Johor. it was exciting to see youths from all t
he states in Malaysia come together to pray for our country and i was so humbled to see how God can use the small town churches and youths to be part of His BIG plan for the nation, for the world, for people! God is doing such a great thing in Malaysia and it's really exciting. i really don't want to miss out on it because i was too caught up with Form 6 or something like that. i want to be part of His plans and i want to live my life for Him! and we must must pray for our land, Malaysia.

1 Timothy 2:1-2
I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone–for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.

then there was Netball Inter-house Games. played for green house. and we got second. pretty alright i guess, since we had like TWO practices only!! we've always been getting second to purple since forever! oh well. but it was super duperly fun to play netball again though i think i'm really bad at it already due to the lack of training and extra weight :( tsktsk. and i got to see lots of lifoong as she came back to refree. i miss that girl super much!

2nd August, Saturday was the National BK Quiz. One of the reasons why i was running around so much before this. it was fun and i super praise and thank God for providing the people who served and helped out. by God's grace and providence it all went well. :) praise God!

i went for Passion Kuala Lumpur on the 3rd of August! and it was good. it was pretty evangelical i must say. but it was a good reminder to the purpose of our lives here, that is to shout God's fame! the worship that night was powerful and refreshing. met loads of christian friends there too.

Greater things have yet to come
Greater things are still to be done in this city
Greater things have yet to come
And greater things have still to be done here

and then the other happy thing is that i passed my driving test!! cleanly :) praise the Lord!!

there's loads more to thank God for. but i should get going now. lots of stuff to do. i am struggling quite a bit in my studies.

Dear Lord,
thank you for being by my side always and for the strength and grace you provide each day. i need you so so so much. and i love you :)

But as for me, I trust in You.
Psalm 55:23
