Service and Love

9 May

Hey everyone 🙂

May the Lord bless you all ❤ 

I wanted to share with y’all …since today was my last day of classes that 

 ^_^ That as of next year in college…Lord willing, I will be starting the nursing school at my college..Im praying that all will go well! I still have to take a test and meet with someone on Wednesday about it and applying. Im kind of nervous but I have faith that the Lord has led me to this path. Im really excited about nursing because I was praying a long time about how I can have my career life be in line with the Lord’s will for me…I wanted something that would serve others, and bless them. This surely is perfect 🙂 Im so happy the Lord showed this path to me! With nursing, I could even, if the Lord wills it that I have one….help my own family in the future!.

Im sure there will be days where I wish I never was a nurse…but thats where perseverance kicks in! 
 I was praying a lot about school..and I was so confused about what I should do, suddenly I just knew it was nursing! I just know the Lord laid this on my heart.  I am so excited and I just wanted to share this blessed opportunity in my life with everybody 🙂 Please pray that this career path leads others to the Lord as well. That this may be a way to reach the Lost for Christ!

yay! 🙂

Love, 

 Oriana

(If anyone has prayer requests please send me a message I would be more than happy to pray for you!)
~Philippians 2:3
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.

Forgive me….

5 May

Forgive me for not following through with my blog as I said I would. It has been hard to keep updated on the Blog. Since my classes are nearly over…I will take this coming summer to update more of you 🙂 And perhaps this blog can grow as my old blog also did! Forgive me friends! I pray this summer will be filled with growth towards Christ and fellowship with all my friends out there!

1 Peter 1:2

(2) who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and sprinkling by his blood:
Grace and peace be yours in abundance.

In Christ,

Oriana 

Boldness

15 Apr

I was taking a look at one of my science textbooks from one of my college classes. It was attempting to defend evolution. Yet, the paragraphs were filled with uncertainty. Filled with maybes and perhaps, possibly, millions and billions, “unknown”. It was just astounding to see that so many people put their faith in something so filled with uncertainty!

It truly made me grateful that the Lord came into my life I have assurance and I rely on the maker of heaven and earth! I mean, just step back and think about that. Look at a little ant, or at a blade of grass, or simply watch little birds hatch from eggs…and it is truly comforting to know that ..My heavenly Father made these things, and I trust in Him! the Lord Jesus, who is the beginning and end.

I pray that this assurance will produce boldness in my life.  

We live in a very apathetic age. an age where people yearn for excitement, trying to fill a void in their life without the Lord.

Man runs and reaches for the next thing that will fill that void ….yet soon enough it dissipates. He yearns for truth, for someone to boldly and assuredly proclaim the true faith.  

As Christians we should definitely pray for boldness, I have oftentimes become lax in including this in my prayers.

Boldness comes from Christ, the opposite of cowardice. Not a brash boldness but a godly assurance in walking by faith.  

Godly Boldness is expressed in loving assurance and trust in our Great Shepherd. I pray for all my fellow Christians and myself, that we may be bold for the Lord Jesus Christ!

In Christ!

Acts 4:23-37
The Believers Pray for Boldness
23 When they were released, they went to their friends and reported what the chief priests and the elders had said to them. 24 And when they heard it, they lifted their voices together to God and said, “Sovereign Lord, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and everything in them, 25 who through the mouth of our father David, your servant, said by the Holy Spirit, “‘Why did the Gentiles rage, and the peoples plot in vain? 26 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers were gathered together, against the Lord and against his Anointed’– 27 for truly in this city there were gathered together against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel, 28 to do whatever your hand and your plan had predestined to take place. 29 And now, Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness, 30 while you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” 31 And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.

Little Blessings and Fellowship

11 Apr

Today at fellowship  I had the privilege of holding my friends little babies :3 They are SO CUTE! ^_^

She has boy and girl twins, and the are just ..so cute I want to squeeze them to no end~!

Its interesting to see that, however tiny they are..they have these unique personalities. The Lord is so wise and perfect, it reminds me of these verses from Psalm 139

13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a] God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand—
when I awake, I am still with you.

 

Blessings to you all!

My Sister’s Drawing :D

Greetings Everyone!

Todays Verse:

James 3:11-12 

(11) Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? (12) My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.

I hope everyone is doing well. Its been quite an eventful week for me.

Prayers and a new craft

31 Mar

Greetings everyone! Today was a wonderful day in prayer with the Lord!

I receive prayer requests from gfa.org.   I received today a prayer request for a young man who is a missionary. He has a brain tumor that has paralyzed him. Please read on to read his story and pray for this young man and the mission to reach the lost!

Those of you who are  not familiar with Gospel for Asia, it is an organization that sponsors native missionaries in Asia to spread the gospel to remote parts where people do not know Jesus. There is a free  book that I highly recommend as well, it is provided by the gfa.org site here:

It truly is free! http://www.gfa.org/offer/freebook/

Craft! 🙂

My sister and I did a craft with a toilet paper roll. So if you find that you have run out of paper on those rolls, they may come to use! Dont throw them out : D  .

We made a “Cain and Abel” craft.

I dont endorse everything that is on this site, so I would recommend that young ones not go on it unattended. They do have some cute crafts on the list, however, so I picked the “Abel” toilet paper “puppet” to make with her, she enjoyed it and we did it after reading from Genesis.  ^_^ Hope you enjoy!

Here is how ours came out!:

Have a blessed day!
