~Heavenly Invitation~

I got an email yesterday. It was an invitation from Pinterest and it says  "Welcome to the club of top Pinner from Indonesia, you're invited to our group called Indonesian Pinfluencer". Some people maybe just so proud and excited but it made me feel weird because of  a reward for my addiction of pinterest but it feels good they counted me too.


~Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven~
Matt 7:21

I just imagine when the Day of the Lord comes, I'm sure He has special invitation for the top of His servants. There will be big heavenly party and reward for each on of us who works to extend His kingdom on earth.  Then this thought brought myself oh how about me? Do I work enough for Him? How could I work well for Him? I never been in a mission trip before that I have wanted since a long time, I noticed of things that some friends on facebook or blog they updating every little thing what they have done and travel the world for missionary things , and the coolest thing with pictures that make me say "Oh God must be proud of them" and me...I am here, a little, in corner of this earth, like no body counts on me.It just made me feel bad.... but,..."Oh Come On Eva!" it's a voice inside me but then that voice reminds me that "offer the best that I have" pleasing God's heart and God counts it from above.

Then God reminds me of some people in the Bible, they had nothing at all but they could bring the best offering to God. The widow's offering, a sinful woman who wiped Jesus' feet with hair and ointment, Hannah gave Samuel to the Lord, and more.

the best that can please Him is my offering, now I am thinking how can I please Him all the time? :D I might not really well to this and that but as I do His will and it comes from my heart, I believe He will send me heavenly invitation.

You don't have to worry, Delvalina - You are sharing your goodness and sweetness with the world in so many ways - reaching out to bring a smile and upliftment to so many. Your work at the orphanage and your happy, willing spirit is a direct reflection of his glory. Hugs xo Karen

You are definitely serving God, just where you are, Delvalina! So glad that God helped you understand that we are each called to do what He asks us to do-whether it seems big or small to us. Some are called to go on mission trips, some to preach, some to sing for Jesus, while others of us are called to write devotional pieces or blog entries or teach children. We are each unique but all serve the same Lord. Blessings to you!

My precious Sister, your post touched my heart. You have a beautiful ministry for Jesus through this blog and even through Pinterest :) Keep shining brightly for our Lord - He will bless you, dear Eva. I love you so much!

Hi Delvalina/Eva! This post reminds me of a piece I read about a priest in a concentration camp. He knew he was cut off from the world, and it looked like he'd never get out.

But he praised the Lord and thanked him for teaching him that he can be effective just by living and serving the best way he knew how. Right in those hard circumstances.

None of us really know how or if we affect other people. You have gotten the notice of Pinterest, and maybe with your fashion sense and eye for color, you can help other people find beautiful things. What a huge way to reach out to a LOT of people. And your faith would never lead people to bad things. A big gift, Delvalina.

And you always support me, and lift my spirits every time you visit me. You bring a loving spirit, and humility too. Don't think you have no influence. You do. But more importantly, God loves you with an everlasting love. That makes you important!
I am very happy that we met.
Blessings! Ceil

Sweet Delvalina,
I was just thinking of Acts 17:26 - "From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands" This teaches us that God has ordained where we shall live and at what time. This means God wants you to be where you are at this time.
