cs lewis quotes :)
“Though our feelings come and go, God’s love for us does not.”
“The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us.”

“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”

“Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of - throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.”

we had residency briefing yesterday! after that during dinner m and y were talking to the cms people (well actually i think they were asking christen something) and so obv i joined them. it was nice :):) really grateful to God for giving me this group of friends. even though we dont have like early morning prayers before lectures anymore, its still really nice meeting them at random times. 

on a separate note: radiology masterclass i love thee!! haha.

daily dose of spiritual inspiration

“…Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5, NKJV)
When you wake up each morning, God sends you a special delivery of joy. It’s like it comes knocking at the door of your heart every day. The problem is that some people never answer the door. It’s right there, month after month, year after year saying, “Come on! Let me in! You can be happy! You can cheer up! You can enjoy your life!” The way to answer the door is to get up and choose an attitude of faith and expectancy by declaring that “today is going to be a good day.” When you start the day like that, you are choosing to receive the gift of joy that God sent to you.
Today, make up your mind to answer the door to joy! Get up every morning and say, “Father, thank You for another beautiful day. I’m going to be happy. I’m going to enjoy this day because You are faithful. I’m going to brighten someone else’s life. I am choosing to receive Your gift of joy and passing it on to others because I love You, and I know that I am called for Your purposes!”

happiness isn't ALWAYS a state of mind, i do believe that outside external forces have a large part in it as well. but i also strongly believe that one can consciously change one's state of mind. i dont think God made us to be unhappy. yes there is a lot of unhappiness in this world, & its up to us to change it. sometimes it feels like the person throwing starfish into the sea one at a time, it feels so pointless. 

medicine is one of the most stressful things ever. not only do you have to memorize waterhoses full of information, you need to appear professional and with it, you need to help others not be needing help yourself LOL. but its also the best thing in the world because if you manage to conquer all that, you can actually make a difference in the world

that is my fundamental belief and why i wouldnt want to do anything else with this one life

... now i just have to conquer everything in myself so i can actually help others

my goal for this year is not to be a model student and learn everything under the sun, it's to bring happiness to those around me. and not to be a black hole of sucktitude HAHA

okay the above quote expresses it better than i can, i think. whatever it says - YES I AGREE wholeheartedly
