"1 See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 2 Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears,[a] we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. 3 All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure." - 1 John 1:3
I haven't abandoned this blog! Just a lot of things happening so haven't been updating. For one I've graduated! Bachelor of Commerce booyahh!
I am privileged to know such beautiful people :)
My family is the best <3
The past few months have been just a mad frenzy. I feel like I do more things and get less sleep during holidays than I do during the normal semester. 2011 was the year of becoming, and God was really working on the word 'becoming'. Come last quarter of 2011 and God was still clearing things out of the closet for me. I am very thankful for that. It has not been easy, and it has hurt a lot, but I feel a lot stronger from it. Like I have a better perspective of certain things.
Because God will never let you just sit in your current state when you could be all that He has made you to be. The BEST you.
I'm super excited for this new year! It's a huge transition year for many people I know, myself included.
For one, starting afresh in God's leadership role for me as an urbanlife leader. After having a chat with one of my senior leaders, I realize that I had been running around worrying about the 'human' details of things. So this break is time for me to step back, let God back into the centre of it all and lead as He pleases.
Secondly, my 1st year in The University of Melbourne Juris Doctor programme. I am so scared yet excited at the same time. People say that I'll do well in law, and I am confident that I will too. I'm aware of how tough it'll be, and I'm dreading the amount of readings I'll have to do. But yay! I finally made it to law! Praise God :) It'll be an interesting 3 years.
My dance. Not only with university ministry, but with other dream projects God has been giving to me. I have my own project that is way overdue; I had hoped to finish it by end of 2011 but I ran out of time. I'm still going to finish it; As God reminded me the day I panicked about not being to complete it, the whole point is not to put it up for show, there's a heartbeat message behind it that I want to share. It will be up soon, I promise. And more to come after :) Also, a friend of mine asked me to support her with her God dream; I am super excited about that! I cannot wait to see the work God does in her life and how it is going to touch others :D
Last night Pammie and I organised a primary school gathering. Sad to say because we don't have everyone's facebooks or phone numbers, we only invited a small group. 13 altogether. Still pretty good! Haha! We ate, played kinect games and talked heaps about stuff we did in primary school, what we have been up to, and what is next. It was so nice to see them, especially the few who I haven't seen in the past few years. Everyone looks the same, everything still feels the same. :)) The one thing that became super clear to us having met last night was that we are all turning 21 this year. Scary. What a birthday. We're 9 years down since graduating from primary school.
Just. Wow. How far each of us have come.
And of course, come 2013 will be our 10th year reunion. Pammie and I plan to make it bigger and hopefully more people will be able to turn up!
One month of rest, reflection, prayer and preparation for my year ahead. Bring it on God! :D
