Me and my mom has set the plan that next week we both are going to decorating home for Christmas, hopefully it's good and probably going to capture it and share it here. and also I am chosen as person who help decorate the stage for Christmas in my mom's church which is also my local church. There are so many mason jars that useless and I see some ideas for using mason jar and I got idea to apply for Christmas  as candle holder.

and so what I'm gonna do with this? is I'm going to secure it from the top, and I must make a sure that when I hang it, it looks balanced. I will use transparent strings to hang them, and hang them in the stage. Maybe it looks like this

~Sentuh Hatiku~

I worked on my thesis this morning, and played some songs on my laptop, I put random songs of worship song I didnt know that this song "Sentuh Hatiku* would come over. This is one of my favorite worship songs, because this song makes easy to get into God's presence in worship, and sometime when I worship God with this song bring tears for my eyes just because the lyric and music that collide and God has anointed this song :)

I remember a drama series in Christmas like 3 years ago in one of a popular channel in Indonesia, and I was glad when it came in that channel, you know Indonesia is not a other countries that almost population with christian people  and familiar with Christians stuff only for specific times like Christmas. This drama called "Sentuh Hatiku which is same with the soundtrack of this song and this song means in English is ~Touch my heart~.  But this morning God reminded me of the plot of this movie...it's about
Young lady who fights for cancer but God showed her that  there is a (her best friend's family) who struggle for life. God told her that she must be there for them and tell them  that God is with them. when her friend's dad died then  young lady realized that this  family needs more of God than she needs God to fight her cancer. So she came to  church and prayed begging to God to more strengthen her  to encourage that family that because she is facing a cancer but there's people out there who dont know God  when they face the reality of life, is better for her in  cancer but know the power of God, God's plans than  people who dont who God is. So she stands on her faith in  cancer and keep encourage people who need God.

Here I put a part of this song, that I translated in English


O Father God, please touch my heart
and change my life to be new  and as the pure gold you shape my heart.
O Father God, please show me about a love that always giving
like a river that never cease flowing 








Play this to listen the song and watch the sneak peek of this movie.



Sometimes this happens to us...when we are in hard times...we need God more, we need God's mercy, and grace for us...in the same moment God allows us to encourage people when they're feeling down even we in the deep valley, God allows us to bless people when we are in need. Then why?
Because we will get more of God in our darkest times.
I found this picture on tumblr

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 of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
(2 Corinthians 12:9-10 ESV)

A lesson for me today, that in my weakness I am only ask people to pray for me many times/ a lot but God need me to encourage people, keep blessing, strengthen them when they need it.

Special thanks to Stephanie who keep courage me, I know that God has shown me a lot of things through you. You are dearly loved!

Thank you Jesus for today! Hope this post bless you my friend. Devils is working hardly to push us down in hard times but by this way, they defeated in Jesus! :D


Much Love,
Delvalina
