~My Portion Forever~

~Whom have I in heaven but You?
And there is none upon earth 
that I desire besides You~
Psalm 73:25


This is one of my favorite verses. Imagine that Jesus is your heart's only desire all the time. All that you can see through your eyes is His beauty. :)

One thing I pray constantly is: "Dear Lord Jesus, please keep my heart close to You and never let me go." I know my life is falling apart without Him. Sometimes there are moments when I don't feel connected to His heart. I feel empty and desperate. When the sorrow and pain come, they make me feel even worse. The enemy is looking at me and ready to do me in... My heart is crying– crying, "God, I need You, please help me!"  I am there sometimes... but Jesus always wins. I do know that He has so many ways to save me and has saved me. Remember that! :)

I try to keep my heart constantly close to Him– even though the hard times. I read my Bible even though I don't feel like it. I pray even though there are many things distracting me. I even made a place for myself to clear my mind and my soul, remember My Sewing Corner? I use that little corner for me to meditate on His word, a place where I feel encouraged and can think of Him.

 

When my soul was embittered,
when I was pricked in heart,
I was brutish and ignorant;
I was like a beast toward you.
Nevertheless, I am continually with you;
you hold my right hand.
You guide me with your counsel,
and afterward you will receive me to glory. 
Whom have I in heaven but you?
And there is nothing on earth that 
I desire besides you.
My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart 
and my portion forever.
Psalm 73:21-26 


Dear friends,  I have everything I want now (it seems), but it's still not enough without Him :) I feel like I am hunting His presence day by day. Have you ever felt the same way? Tell me how do you keep your heart close to Him? How do you pursue Him when there's a wall in the front of you?

Our hearts long for Him, but sometimes the world creates a border. I am sure He loves us and He made the way to find us... even when our hearts are grieved and we don't know how to find Him.

~ My Sewing Corner ~

   Moving to a new Country and new home (my second home) creates new opportunities and various differences; it's challenging, yet beautiful. I realize God is the owner of my life– 
so what should I be worried about?! :)

Another thing that I am thankful for is my new family. My husband and I are still staying with my in-law's (his parents) till we find our own house. So, the other day my mother-in-law and I were cleaning the front porch and we arranged all the gifts received from bridal showers and the wedding. After we finished cleaning, we found a small space for me to use for sewing. 

Here's my sewing room that I call "My Sewing Corner" 

This room is surrounded by windows and makes me happy while I work. (sewing and crafting) :)

 

Also, I've been making a blanket for my husband from all his old t-shirts– I just finished yesterday!
Here's another side of My Sewing Corner.

Thank you for stopping by! Know that I really miss my blogging friends and am happy to back here.
