Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. …If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt. —James 1: 2, 5, 6a
I’m honestly so scared with the Final exams coming up (plus all the shifting exams and deadlines this week and next week) and It seems impossible to do all the studying in a few DAYS’ time, but I believe it’s possible by faith. By faith, there will be perseverance. God is with me. I’ll get through. Game? :’)
PRAYERS are highly appreciated. :’)
FAITH THAT WILL NOT DOUBT.
Earlier this night, i was feeling so anxious. I have 2 theoretical exams, 1 practical exam and a report all on Monday & Tuesday. I’m so anxious because there’s a lot to read and i’m lacking time and i’m so much wanting to pass all them, but things just looked so impossible. But then, God reminded me that as a child of His, i shall never doubt but rather let Him handle everything. I was reminded of this short devotional from Charles Swindoll’s book “Bedside Blessing.” It just gave me hope and remembered that all I need is God… and I can get through this. Just sweet. God is just so sweet.
Medical School, 1st year 1st semester finally over. Sem break’s here!! A lot of things will be different next sem already, but we know we’re solid!
Here’s a class picture of us (we’re not complete in this pic, though… but there’s still a lot of us. Heee. :D)
So grateful to be in this wonderful section!! Fun fun class. MedSchool wouldn’t be even more fun, without them. 😊❤
Section 1B Medicine, FEU-NRMF Institute of Medicine ❤
being in medical school, really led me to a sedentary lifestyle. i mean, come on, i wake up in the morning-go to school-sit all day-go home-study (which means SITTING all night).. then the food goes with it. oh my. since school started, i wasn’t able to go walking or jogging & do a few exercises because there’s no timeeee!! and it kinda starts to freak me out because i feel like my butt is already being “enhanced” again more and more because for months now, i’ve been sitting and sitting. hahaha. these changes aren’t really cool. i’m dying to go back to living a healthy lifestyle… to go back jogging, but there is really no time. others who might read this would say, if you really want it there’s a way… but really, i’m telling you, there is no time. but yeeees, i still & i keep on believing there’s still a way. whoooo. this post is just so random. haha. =)))
so, it’s been 2 months and a few weeks now since medical school started… and i’m still on the adjustment period. been fighting the tiredness just so i can study everything that i need to study. honestly, this adjustment period is rough!! because of lack of sleep plus so many other things to do… my time with God has been lessened. ;( it’s so hard, there were times when i do my devotion SO FAST just because i need to get off and leave for school. it sucks, really. But you know what, God is faithful. Of course He knows that i’m adjusting with everything that’s going on with my life because of med.school, but i know that it’s not an excuse for me to spend less time with Him… but yes, He’s so faithful. He never left me, God continues to encourage me despite my many downs in Med. School. Yes, He’s so faithful. And I’m just so glad right now that God speaks to me in ways that tells me He’s here for me. And He also told me that I need to discipline myself even more in managing my time — time with God, time for studying, for sleeping, for relaxing, for family, for friends, for other stuffs — by living by the Spirit first. He’s the One in control and I have to live by that… and I know everything — though not smoothly — will turn out just fine. I thank You Lord! <3
2 months in medical school…
and i’m still alive, thank God! :D
i’ve experienced a lot of ups and downs and downs already. but it’s all good, getting through well by God’s grace.
just one thing… i’ve been starting to miss A LOT of people already. since you get so busy in med. school, you have lesser time for family and friends. And i’ve realized the value of relationships even more. it’s really important to make time for them. right now, i can’t see my friends, but we’re catching up through text messaging, facebook, twitter, in whatever way… and i’m just really happy to catch up with them. Thank You God for relationships and may I be able to keep them despite my busy sched. <3
MEDICAL SCHOOL is fun and toxic at the same time. It’s been three weeks since the first day of my first year classes, and we have had discussed A LOT already plus we have had 2 practical exams (and another one coming this week), 3 or 4 shifting exams (and another 3 for this week to come), tons of reports and group works already. I’m
sleep deprived and i got sick (i still am sick actually). Medical school is really hard… but again, it’s fun. I’m totally having fun. I just thank the Lord for this wonderful blessing… that He has called (and qualified) me to be in medical school. I believe that even if I really find it SO hard, God will bring me through. I know i’ll be moving forward — to the next semester, and then to 2nd yr and to 3rd yr and to 4th yr, and to Medical board exams until people can call me “Doctor”… those beautiful 2 letters at the end of my name: “M.D.” — by God’s grace.
I believe, God will get me through.
Thank You God for this awesome blessing… to study the human body and even more appreciate how You have wonderfully created us from the inside out. Thank You that in time, through me, i’ll be able to help people with their health… for them to see that it’s important that we take good care of the bodies that You have given us. Thank You God, thank You. ♥
it’s going to be a real BIG STEP OF FAITH. ♥ …Tomorrow will be the start of so many changes in my life. Got to close some doors for other and greater doors to open. I’m really excited! I’m excited because finally, I’m one step NEARER to my dream… and it gets more exciting because of the people around me. Thank You Father God for all these people who supports me and as excited as me on this journey — my family, friends, professors, everyone who’s supporting me. Bless them. ♥ This journey will be tough, but, You have brought me here, so there’s an assurance that You’ll bring me through. This is all for You, God. ♥ :)
