1 What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? 2 By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? 3 Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. 5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. 6 We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. 7 For one who has died has been set free from sin. 8 Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. 9 We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. 10 For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. 11 So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus. 12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions. 13 Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness. 14 For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.

FEELING LIKE YOU ANNOY THE ONLY PERSON YOU WANT TO TALK TO SUCKS
Satan tells me I am unworthy; but I always was unworthy, and yet You have long loved me; and therefore my unworthiness cannot be a barrier to having fellowship with You now.
“Not only does sin hinder prayer; prayer hinders sin. The two are always opposed. The more careless we are about sin, the less we will pray. The more we pray, the less careless we will be about sin. Both sin and prayer are powerful forces. Which one is moving you?”
Dr. Alvin Vander Griend
Oh how my hearts harp strings are tightened with the burden of love. But such beautiful sounds it makes.
He will provide what you need to get you where He’d like you to be. Man I’ve known this. But this crazy thing just happened.
So I’ve been working all summer as an intern at FBC. The pay checks are pretty small compared to the hours but I’m totally okay with that because I know I was where I was suppose to be. But my family has been having financial struggles and they’ve needed me to help them a ton which I was happy to do. But it was also stressful cause I wasn’t sure if I’d have enough for car insurance, rent, and tuition management payment for the first month of school. So I lined up a job at Dutch Bro’s for the school year and again I didn’t know when my first paycheck for that was going to be.
Out of nowhere an anonymous person in First Baptist sent me a letter. No name on it nothing. In the letter they just thanked me for being at FBC this summer and had $200 dollars in it. $200 dollars, enough for insurance and tuition management for the first month until I get my pay checks from Dutch.
The Lord is my provider and He will get me to where He want’s me to be.
