a break from pharma

in the midst of all the chaos that is medicine, i got this:

but He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness." therefore i will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. that is why, for Christ's sake, i delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. for when i am weak, then i am strong.

2 corinthians 20: 19-10

something to think about, no? :)

my brain is easily friable

classes started too fast, too soon. summer was only a month ago, but it seemed like ages. thanks to hs 202 (a mish-mash of pathology, microbiology and parasitology), i feel like i've been studying for a year! my exam is tomorrow, and i've read 10 or so seemingly never-ending chapters of 3 books and so many lecture transcriptions that i have lost count. i haven't been sleeping well for 3 weeks. all my weekends were jam-packed with reading and, hopefully, understanding. and all this for what? rarrrr...

it would be so easy to say, "i give up!" but i refuse to. my family and i have sacrificed too much for this. besides, whenever i feel like quitting, i feel God's comforting hug. suddenly, i feel the urge to go on. sige Lord, basta med ang gusto mo para sa akin, kakayanin.

verse for the day:
"whoever serves Me must follow Me; and where I am, My servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves Me." [john 12:26]
