Hello again!

Hello there!

I’m going to breathe a little life to my blog. So much has happened since I last blogged.

I moved to my new house. Travelled to Seoul. Survived 2 iterations of this super stressful work paper (but now, praise God, it’s getting some headway). Survived heaps of work and organising of meetings. Celebrated SG50. Voted in the General Elections where all the seats were contested. Settled the spring-cleaning of Nainai’s room so that she can recuperate better after her surgery earlier this month. Turned 28. Learnt how to cook some simple dishes and wash the toilet.

Wow. Thank you, God. You make me realise that I’m blessed because of You, because of who You are and not because of what I can do.

The lessons I faced this year were painful, but I’m so thankful that God placed his angels around me to encourage me when I was down in the pits.

Really thank God for my family, my sis and my mom for being such a great help when I first moved in to my new place. I had difficulty adjusting to living on our own, and felt so sad then, when I went back to my 娘家 (literal translation: mother’s home) and had to leave to return to my new home. I realise how dependent I was towards my mom and truly, it was a struggle to be away from her. It didn’t help that i was also facing one of my stressful periods at work. But yup, survived that, and now I manage things a little better on my own.

I thank God for being my strong anchor when so many things were changing.

To end off, let me share this Psalm from the Bible that brought healing to my bones:

‘Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say of the Lord , “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. “Because he loves me,” says the Lord , “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”

Psalm 91:1-16 NIV
