I don’t really use my tumblr anymore. I haven’t blogged in 2 months - I checked my last post to see.
I’d figured it’s is about time that I should update you guys about what’s been going on in my life.
I still go to Texas State. I am a junior now majoring in Health Information Management (HIM). I am still a member of Cru (Campus Crusade for Christ), a campus ministry. I’ve been a part of Cru for 3 semesters or more than a year. I love Cru. It is a great community of believers. And I’m glad I get to be a part of it.
This semester is my hardest semester so far. I’m taking 13 hours, and that means 4 classes and 2 labs. Without Cru, I don’t think I would be able to manage to stay in one piece. I would probably have fallen apart already without them. The Cru community is an amazing support group. For example, say I’m sending prayer requests and to know that people actually care and will pray for you is a good feeling. Also, people just physically being there - I am able to spend valuable time with my community. With this semester being my hardest semester, I was able to realize how much Cru really meant to me.
Cru at Fall Getaway 2012
This semester is almost over. Although, I won’t be spending time with Cru this summer, I’m glad the semester is almost over. I’m ready for summer, already. I’m ready to move back home, go swimming in the hot summer weather, go to China with my parents to see my grandparents, and be able to relax and don’t have to worry about school.
I hope everyone else is doing well and having a good semester :).
This post is not okay.
oohh nooooo Aang’s a girl!

I made this in word today during my quiet time with God.
Studying on 10.6.12 for FM3335 Test #1 on my MacBook Pro
It is test week for me this coming week. 3 tests. Studying for my first one of the week as you can see.
The good news is Cru Fall Getaway will end my test week. This retreat will be refreshing with friends and God. It think it will be just what I need.

Right before the new school year
My roommate and I moved into our apartment on Friday, two days ago. It is a really nice apartment. Big and spacious, and it came with a good price. It has been a fun weekend so far here in San Marcos.
I got to see my Cru friends again! And it was just yesterday that we had a welcome back party. Lots of hugs came my way. We hung out and just chilled. We also served together. There were some of us handing out Cru flyers and some handing out water to freshmen. I was part of a group that was handing out flyers. These 5,000 freshmen were stuck in a room as their last part of orientation. They were ready to get out and get some free water and some awesome flyers. Ah, it was for sure fun. And I also got a free Cru cup and a free flyer, which was awesome. It was great getting to see everyone again.
Today is the first time I am going back to the 242 Church in San Marcos after a long time. Not just the summer, but also some of the Spring 2012 semester. And I’m excited :)! It will be nice to go back to church again because I’ll have that community again.
Tomorrow is the FIRST day of school! I don’t know if I am ready mentality. It hasn’t really hit me yet. I’ve been in summer school for the majority of my summer. I am not burned out or anything like that. Instead, it’s like schools starting! But I’ve already am still kind of in school mode. So, it’s not really a big deal. Though, I need to prepare by getting my schools supplies ready today soon.
Monday, tomorrow, is also the CRU BREW! I’ve never been to this, not even last year. So, it is something new that I’m thinking of going to. It is basically a night of hanging out, free drinks, and dancing. A dance party!
So, it is starting out to be a good time here. I hope the fall 2012 semester is good too.
“This is not about what you’ve done, but what’s been done for you.”
Beautiful video and lyrics. The ending of the video is awesome.
I upset and hurt someone this summer. And this song said I’m “more than the problems” I create. And it’s “not about what you’ve done, but what’s been done for” me. What’s been done is Jesus died for our sins. So, it’s like I’m already forgiven. God erases your past mistakes, like it’s chalk on a chalkboard.
I did apologize to the person I hurt. I think what’s more important is that I to apologize to God, which I did. This song kind of helped me understand and get through it in the end. Thanks, God.

About 2 Sundays ago I listened to an Austin Stone sermon online called “Religion vs. The Gospel.” It was a great sermon. I wanted to share some of the notes I got from it. :) Also, a little bit of an application/reflection, too.
The Gospel is the essence of our faith is the truth that God loves you, accepts you, and connects with you.
A religious-centered Christian:
- Runs from God when they sin
- Feel Christianity is a burden
- Struggles with forgiveness
- Their worship is usually lifeless or dull
- Repents and obeys because an ungodly fear of God
A Gospel-centered Christian:
- Runs to God when they sin
- Experience Christianity as a burden-lifted (freedom)
- Forgives completely (and quickly)
- Worship with their heart <3
- Repents and obeys because of the kindness of God
You can spot who is which by the way they worship
Now, time for some application/reflection. So, which one am I? Where do I stand?
I am mostly a Gospel-centered Christian. I don’t have all the things listed there. But, most of them I do.

Top 1 blogs I reblogged the most:
Jesus was crucified today. He died for us today!
I went to a Cru Winter Conference this January. It is a week-long conference with the Cru’s of the Red Region. One of the speakers, don’t remember which one, showed a video of Jesus Christ being nailed to the cross. It was really graphic.
I didn’t know what love meant at all before this video. Now, I know what love means. Jesus loved us. He died on the cross for us. And, we’re not even worthy of it. So, why would you do that, Jesus? It’s because He loves us <3.
So, thank you Jesus for dying on the cross for me, for us, today.
