Health Care

We have started our next module which is Introduction to Home Health Care.  

Sounds easy, yes…but it tackle medical terms which are very vague to me. New to me… 

Anyway, everything can be learned. 

Our clinical instructor is good; he is a she and a nursing graduate. He is fun!

Silent…

I know I have been too silent…

Honestly, I can’t think of any words to write for the past days! I only read other’s blog and commented but zero words on my own page. Hmmmnnn…

I don’t know…maybe because I was relaxing my mind from the final exam that it went through…(our first module was done).

Though the result is good, I am confident that I got the high score but the effect is just so terrible…I can’t explain it really!

I felt like I came from a long journey and when I reached home…all I wanted is to rest my tired body.

Maybe…maybe not…my mind was just tired and wanted to feel the long vacation from school (holiday on Monday and our next module will start on the 22nd).

I know I felt this before…

Any idea???

The Price for Rejecting God

Hebrews 10:26-31

Many people believe they’ll go to heaven because they tried to live a good life. Here’s the simple truth: Those who receive Jesus Christ’s gift of salvation will spend eternity with God. And those who refuse the gift will not. The price for rejecting God is eternal separation from Him.

When a person becomes a believer, he recognizes that he’s not good enough to deserve anything from God. Man’s sinful nature is characterized by rebellion against the Lord. It alienates him from his Creator. No matter how hard a person tries, he cannot avoid sinning again. That’s because he still has the old sin nature. But at the moment of salvation, Christ forgives all his sins and declares him no longer guilty. Then God gives him a brand-new nature.

If someone rejects the truth that salvation comes only through the atoning death of Jesus Christ, he has nowhere else to turn. His good works aren’t enough to get him into heaven, a place of sinless perfection. And his wrongdoing remains unforgiven. The penalty for sin is death. If Christ’s sacrifice is rejected, the guilty party must pay the price himself.

These words aren’t meant to scare you into receiving salvation. They’re a warning about the future if you reject the Lord. God has set before you a choice between eternal life and death. Deuteronomy 30:19-20 says, “Choose life in order that you may live . . . by loving the LORD your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him.”

Sovereign Over Sin

Isaiah 14:24-27

God is sovereign. That means He’s the supreme authority over everything, including sin and its consequences. Yet, He doesn’t cause anyone to sin. Doing so would violate His righteous and holy nature. But the Lord does allow temptation to enter our lives. And since we have free will, we decide how to respond. Thankfully, He retains ultimate control and weaves the consequences of our actions for His purposes.

Sometimes God permits our sin to run its full course. For instance, when the Israelites refused to turn away from their disobedience, Psalm 81:12 says He “gave them over to the stubbornness of their heart, to walk in their own devices.” Without divine protection, the nation gave in to corrupt influences and ultimately was overrun. The Lord could have sheltered them from that outcome. But those very consequences drove the Israelites into repentance, which was His plan.

Sometimes God will put an immediate halt to sin. Such was the case in Genesis 20 when King Abimelech took Abraham’s wife Sarah for himself. The king had been misled by the couple. He was unaware that he was about to commit a sin. But the Lord knew, and He intervened.

Of course, the wisest plan is to completely obey so God never has to use either of these tactics. Temptation is inevitable. But sin isn’t. The Lord’s control over our lives means that any temptation must first pass through His permissive will. In this way, He makes sure His children are never tempted beyond their limit.
