Roller-coaster.

It's been an exciting two days, because:


1. I got rejected from a job application.
2. I got an offer from another job application.
3. My boss counter-offered something even better.

All in two days! 

I'm very thankful for all that has come my way. God first humbled me with the initial rejection, and then encouraged me with the subsequent offers, so that through it all I may remember that all good things come from Him and Him alone. It wasn't by my own ability that I got anywhere at all. All wisdom and knowledge comes from God Almighty. He knows what I need and lovingly provides for me.

All that you have comes from God too. Have you thanked Him for the people who love you, for the job that sustains you and for every little joy in life?

One of my favourite psalms from the Bible says:


When I was younger, I thought this verse means that I shall not want the Lord as my Shepherd haha. Very poor language skills I know! But no, it means that the Lord is my Shepherd and because He is taking care of me, I will not be in want, because He will make sure I have all that I need. :)

Here's a song that Ling and I recorded for our parents' day project thats inspired by this lovely verse:





Lyrics here! :)

Are there any of you also facing a dilemma or a difficult situation? Are you going through rough times in life? God can give you peace too, just like how He has given me. He is just a prayer away. :)
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
- Matthew 11:28

Thankful for the new opportunities that God has placed in my life, boyfriend and I had a celebratory dinner, Singapore style.



Love having simple fare at traditional hawker centers and old markets. Good food doesn't have to come with big bills. :) Singaporean readers who love fried hokkien mee, you have to give the old Bukit Timah market a visit!

---

Even though it is tempting to stay, seeing how much my boss wants me to stay, and how I've grown to be so comfortable with my current job, I have made up my mind to move on with a heart to learn and grow. Though the new job would be full of challenges and uncertainties, I know wherever I go, God is never far away. He will lead me as I go along. :)

Here's to new beginnings!
