i got an unexpected email this morning. it is about an interview to the Chicago Medical School, which is a part of Rosalind Franklin University. i was there for the masters program the past year, and i actually did not think that i would get an invitation from them this year.
in my surprise, my thoughts and praises from getting this first medical school interview were different than ever before. once i saw the letter, i saw my friends’ faces there who are in their first year of medical school. i was thinking maybe God has some unfinished business for me there. i started thinking about the fellowship and maybe how we could improve it for the new med students. then, my thought wondered back around the interview itself and how i gotta show them that i would love to go back to the school… but in the end, my heart found peace in God that if it is His will, it will happen. it is just a privilege for me to be a part of it.
i have also been given myself some other options too as in going to out of state for D.O.’s or even Caribbean medical schools. the weird part is that- i’m excited than ever because my heart is growing to see them as a new missions field. but at the same time, i’m trying to remember what i learned from last year through the masters program about having a balance lifestyle of sharing the Gospel and studying the stuff. but haha.. i seriously never had these types of thoughts when it comes to attending medical school. i would usually consider of certain privileges and praises that i could receive from others, studying my butts off to get good grades or worrying about what i would do in the future.
i ask myself why i would have this type of thoughts and excitements. i feel very weird. but i think it is from God, and He has been showing me my heart’s desires and how they were not aligned with His this past year. i’m not saying i’m totally aligning with His will right now, but perhaps tuning my ear to hear it/turning my head to see it more often.
personally- when i learn how to be WITH God in quietness, i will know how to be WITH God in craziness.
i want to make the best out of this year of not serving/involving to build some more characters. it’s gonna be good. all my hope on the cross.

Lord, help me be what you want me to be, to have a life with all the purposes to glorify Your holy name.
