Blessing Week of This Season

The second week of this month is overwhelming and blessing.
So much to do with decoration stuff, cards and mailing Christmas invitation. For more I should taking care of my younger brothers and sisters in orphanage (I'm the eldest :D ) they are invited to sing in some churches and places during this Christmas and I should watch them practice every evening and playing guitar when they're singing.  One thing that made me smile that God is still trusting me to help my parents ministry in this orphanage thought only few people now. Once I was trying to stop thinking about orphanage stuff some of you knew what happened in the early of this year, I stopped to do this and that but there is a time when God pulled me back and calling me again. Should I reject it? No, I love Him and I love these children and their futures and dream. So I stay here...I stay as their sister...again. I know that I'm not kind of person that easily closer to people but God has many ways when He wants me to be there.

The Blessing is God still there, 

the last time we sang was at a church, they have filmed our daily activity and they want their children learn from us. That's a good point, we sang, and I gave testimony and saw some of them teary... God has touched them with our lives

Yesterday 2 different people came here and gave gift for each one of us in this orphanage, and today I saw their happy faces (the children) some of them are just can't wait to shopping but they give it back tenth of the gift as what the Bible has taught us.

I still write my journal and and I read every journal I wrote since January of this year. I just found that God has brought me to the top and through the valley He never let me go...I wrote what I wanted to pray and He answered mostly each of them ( I checked list). If you havent had a kind of this journal then I suggest you to have one. Write what you want to pray, write what God has told you and asked you to do, and also write what happen after you pleased Him....and see how blessed you are.


"He stay the same and never change...Thank you Jesus!"


Now for my Dressember fun during the second week.


This is hard to do everyday that I should dress everyday because my normal clothes at home are shirt and rumple pants (they're just very comfy for me. I only wear dress when I'm out of home. But I have decided to do this for ending the slavery. Please do anything you can do to prevent slavery, one thing that I really can do is educating people. How important education to prevent the human trafficking.

 


 


  

I wore the same dress other day and my face look so tired lol :D

~Trusting with Love & Dressember Fun~



It's 2.37 am and I can't sleep. Almost for 3 hours I was laying but my eyes wide. I can't sleep...it happens when to much things in my head and you will know what I do if you read my previous post Bible. Yes, I grabbed my Bible and read and I wrote in my journal and I love when God showed me the clue or the revelation. 

 And Samuel said,
“Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices,
    as in obeying the voice of the Lord?
Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice,
    and to listen than the fat of rams.
                                              ( 1 Samuel 15:22)

It's written that Obey is better than sacrifice  and I know it sometimes hard for me to obeying Him, though I'm trying to please Him with my own way but obey Him is much way better.

Sometimes my future is big mountain for me, it's crazy if I thinking of this everyday, maybe because I'm young. So many questions in my head, and it's not easy to trust Him.

"God, I trust You and you must be happy right?" -Done!

This is what in my mind before (God, I trust You, so do what You want to do) This moment seems like my mom asked me to do something and obey it though I didn't like it, so I would do it with grumbling.  

Oh...it's just so wrong. I know but my soul will against this thought...

"Let's do, and let's obey because I love Him and I'm happy if I can make Him be glad"

I love when my heart speak speak peacefully and make me calm, I know He makes my heart His home :) then He have loved me first.

So, I will trust Him no matter what because I love Him :)


~I discovered that it's not easy to trusting God through the hard times but when your heart loves Him so, you will trust Him no matter what.~

Joining Dressember



~Love can make a change~




My Dear friends,

I'm officially joining this campaign. So what is this campaign about?

Dressember is a month of wearing dresses. At its core, Dressember is a celebration of femininity and beauty. It has created a community the globe of like-minded individuals who would not have otherwise ever come in contact with one another.

In 2013, Dressember took on new meaning: opposing human trafficking by aligning with International Justice Mission. IJM is a human rights organization that works to rescue victims of slavery, sexual exploitation, and other forms of violent oppression. Now, those who participate in Dressember are also seeking to raise awareness and funds for IJM's work to continue. The heart of Dressember is freedom-- that every woman, man, and child has the right to be free to live a vibrant life.


I Participate for this because my heart is broken each time I got the news about slavery, human trafficking, poverty and such as.

A Simple Idea to Use Old Christmas Ornaments



"Let our hearts overflow with thankfulness..."

- Colossians 2:7


Every year my mom and I always buy a new ornaments for Christmas decoration...and pack the old ornaments that can't really used. Normally they are broken and damage and less shiny.

I was thinking if I could use all of them and trying to make another look, but this is just as simple as you think. You only need a glass or mason jar or a glassy bowls and the old ornaments.





Well, you just need to put in all ornaments inside the glasses and give snow spray to make it look frost.

If you want to give the new look you only make them more shiny with clean or put more glitter.


Isn't it so simple? :)

what is your idea to use the old ornaments?

I'm really sorry for not coming to your site because sometimes I want to log into blog and it directs me to another site, I think it's kinda virus for Google products, and I need to ask a help for this. I'm wondering if some of you have the same problem...


Happy Thanksgiving week for all my American family and friends.
My heart so grateful that we could grow up in Christ together through this blogland

~ Me and My Bible~



Sustain me, my God, according to your promise, and I will live; do not let my hopes be dashed.
(Psalm 119:116)

Reading Bible for me is just something where the moment I meditate...but  more you discover things in Bible it all more than just daily meditation. Holy Spirit will reveal things that you never thought before even though what you read today same with what you read in the past.

Sometimes in the moment when I have to read my Bible I have no idea what book/part that I should read...sometimes I don't know the point is and I'm like oh I will read this later and keep procrastinating, and sometimes I founds a gem that I don't think I never heard before and I'm like glowing :)


and I just want to love His Scripture everyday, I just want to know His heart
 through the stories, and I just want He speaks to me...the only thing I can is to be friend with my Bible.



I love to read my Bible in the morning like when the sunrise and its light dancing around my room. I just love that moment.  And at nights while people are sleeping.

I put my Bible under my pillow because each night I lay down on my bed, I think to much things of my life and it will help me to reminds me that His scripture is where I find my peace. Sometimes I just feel like I sleep in His arms when I hugging it hehe 

I love to mark, highlights,  and write on Bible...I just want to put what God has told me through the verse when I read. So that next time when I read it again it will encourage me. I am sure you will like "Oh, how could I write this?" :) (I love this part) Bible is kind of my little journal, it looks messy but I love the way it looks


So, in the moment you're down and need His words. The Holy Spirit is like alarm. He reminds you the scriptures. 


So that's the story of me and my Bible...

What is yours? :)

Chicken Corn Soup for Papa





Let all that you do be done in love
(1 Corinthians 16:14)

It's almost a week I spent time with my dad, well 3 days actually because Sunday - Thursday I was at school to take my certificate and my GPA transcript. I made it home on Thursday and at that day we had grocery shopping. Normally mom cooks for us, but today I want to cook for us. Even though I don't know how to cook very well but recipe in blogland and pinterest help me a lot  :)

But I said, let me cook with my own way and will see how it taste oh haha :D but do you want to know a secret that it comes good? you must cook with all your heart...oh my!

Corn soup is my dad's favorite food, and I want to try but how? well this thought came in my mind corn soup it must be "Corn and Soup". I know how to cook soup but I dont know how to cook corn soup.

let's do this I need to mix soup and corn. Yes! ( please dont try I cooked with my own  instinct )


But here is... :)





I asked my two friends to taste it and they liked, they even asked one more time :D

But this evening when I got back home and and I asked my dad, but he answered it's too dense and need a little bit sweet, so I was disappointed. 
I thought that he wouldnt eat again, but tonight I asked my two friends in youthto have dinner with me and asked them to taste it but when we made it home...Nothing Left in the bowl, I was wondering where did my dad put it but then he said all gone he just ate it all haha.
It made me laugh :D

Thank you Jesus, I feel like I pass the exam of cooking today :)
I always remember what my mom said that if you want to cook, make over, or decorating, crafting just do it with all your heart and never be satisfied when they praise you.

~Ought to Pray and Never Lose Heart ♥~


"My Lord..." (sobbing) I kneeling and begging.

"You again My dear...? Didn't I tell you no?" 

"Yes You did my Lord... but it's just hard to me and this heart won't stop to hope in You"

"I see... You won't give up on Me. Very well, and I'm willing you to do"


"Oh yay! :D I know You will, and I know You love me" jump, jump, dance, and singing with joyful heart.


   ***

My dear friends sorry that I always have crazy conversation with God. It's true and sometimes come across in my mind, hehe and He is funny sometimes and I love it! :)

Let's see, 
tonight I am awaken from my sleep and I still need to sleep again so much to do tomorrow. But tonight I am reminded of the story in Luke 18 : 1 - 8 it's a parable of Persistent Widow. I was thinking that our beloved Jesus is so brilliant to describe this parable. We all here like this widow, but which one we are? sometimes we're easily give up on things in this world and then we stop to pray and asking. Remember Hannah? All the years, everyday she came and asked to God.

I was thinking that this widow was crazy and stubborn, but no she still had a hope that she could win.  She didn't lose her heart in the circumstances even the unfaithful judge granted her desires. What about our King who loves us? I feel loved by Him everyday, and each time I remember this my heart is so happy.

"ought to pray and never lose your heart"

I'm wondering sometimes that did I ever change God's mind? hmmm this question makes me smile sometime :)...I remember that Abraham also bargained with God about Sodom and Gomora and also I remember about Jonah's story 

~Who knows? God may turn and relent and turn from his fierce anger, so that we may not perish~ ( Jonah 3:9)

so...what's the point Eva???


hmmm, I don't know exactly the point is but just a question
"How could I melting God's heart and change His mind?"

:)

I'm praying that the Spirit of God will guide you to understand.

Another Idea to style my Kebaya Top




If your visited my graduation post and then you must remember my Kebaya outfit. If you wondering what kebaya is then here I posted a little bit about Kebaya

A Kebaya is a traditional blouse-dress combination that originates from Indonesia and worn by women in Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, Burma, Singapore, southern Thailand, and the Southern part of the Philippines. It is sometimes made from sheer material such as silk, thin cotton or semi-transparent nylon or polyester, adorned with brocade or floral pattern embroidery. Kebaya usually worn with a sarong or batik kain panjang, or other traditional woven garment such as ikat, songket with a colorful motif.
The kebaya is the national costume of Indonesia, although it is more accurately endemic to the Javanese, Sundanese and Balinese peoples. by "Wikipedia Kebaya you can read more about Kebaya in that link :)

here is some pictures of Modern Kebaya




and this is a picture of my friend and sister Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose I sent her a Kebaya outfit A Delightful Gift From Indonesia




and so other day I just wanted to style my kebaya with another bottom or skirt. I just want to look different and cute with it, but actually it MUST with Batik Skirt and this is just for fun...if you are going to wedding party, or Birthday party or this idea maybe will be fit to you as long as you're young ;)
















So that's all it seems that I'm going to pick the mangoes soon! :)
yum yum


Delight yourself in the Lord,
    and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 37:4

~A Jealous God~

~For the Lord, your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God~
Deuteronomy 4: 24





A jealous God. How beautiful! it makes me smile and giggle each time I heard somebody, pastor, or my leaders said that.

I was walking alone when on my way home  one evening, and you know. This heart mostly talking to God whenever I am alone. At the day I felt so exhausted and then in my mind is bathing then sleep.  Then my heart asked me "how about your devotion time?" just suddenly "a jealous God" came across in my mind.

"jealous?!?!"  "really? oh how could He jealous of someone like me who sinner and imperfect" 

Then I just realized that spent much time to be busy doing something under the sun. I realized that my head only thinking of this and than and sometimes they make me worry all the times, I realized that I always asked Him why than let Him talk to me. For sure He is jealous if I never let Him stay a while in my mind and heart. I remember that I and Him are having intimate relationship. Though I have broken His heart many times and still He forgives because He loves with unconditional love. 

And this morning I did my devotion and this verse came again. I am just so happy that how He appreciates this relationship.


smile.... :)

I still giggling that God can be jealous of me :D I feel so much like royalty princess.

***

Oh my perfect King, 

You are the One I love!
I hope You like and smile down at me when you read this post :)

Te amo mucho.

Tu princessa
