This month has been a month I will never forget as my mind is becoming so negative with what is going on in my life.  Last Friday I went into emergency to see if anything could be done and we were in the hospital for 5 hours. Blood work turn out good, plus the x-rays of the Chest area, so we were sent home with a new prescription to help me get rest at night. It has not helped as I turn and toss all night having to go to the bath room at least four times. I cough also which is very hard and it is very uncomfortable. I know the Lord is able to touch me, but my taste is not present while eating and it is getting to where I have to put a lot of effort in eating and feel like gauging at times, but have not done so. My faith along with Mom’s is being tried like never before, but we both know God is able and we need to have that faith that is required to be healed completely. To know we are still abiding in the vine; Jesus, giving us the Assurance God is still present to minister to us in this world gone insane with lawlessness and crime. 
We are still pleased with where we are and know God has work for us yet to do and we both want to be led of the Lord, so we can be a blessing to others. Pray for the need of sleep, eating with taste, and comfort of abiding in the Lord’s Love, Grace, Mercy, and Justice! I read Daniel Kolenda comments on 
Have you ever struggled with your identity or purpose? When we decide to live for Jesus, he changes us and makes us a new creation. As we surrender to Christ, we begin to live our lives for His glory. In this study, Daniel Kolenda reveals our true identity as a follower of Christ. 
“Dead men can do nothing. A dead man can’t be asked to do good works. But when God breathes His new life into you, He can then require something of you.” – Daniel Kolenda
“Dead men can do nothing. A dead man can’t be asked to do good works. But when God breathes His new life into you, He can then require something of you.” – Daniel Kolenda
 There was a time when even Jesus’ disciples didn’t realize who He was. They saw Him as a good man, prophet, or teacher. But after His glorious resurrection, they discovered the enormous part of His identity they had missed. He was so much bigger and so much greater than what they had perceived with their natural senses. Jesus Christ was God Himself. So Paul says that we should not make that mistake again. In fact, from now on, we should not view anyone in Christ as a normal human. Jesus has made us more than ordinary people. He has created us as part of the divine family. The Bible speaks often about our true identity as God’s people in Christ. 

 WE...Have resurrected from the dead with Christ (Col. 3:1).
 Are the expression of Christ’s divine life (Col. 1:4).
 Are chosen, holy, and loved by God (Col. 3:12).
 Are children of the light (1 Thess. 5:5).
 Have a heavenly calling (Heb. 3:1).
 Are sons and daughters of God (Gal. 3:26).
 Are God’s temple (1 Cor. 3:16).
 Have been bought with a price (1 Cor. 6:20).
 Have been raised with Christ and seated in heavenly places(Eph. 2:6).
 Have been set free from sin (Rom. 6:18).
 Are the aroma of Christ (2 Cor. 2:15).
 Are the light of the world (Matt. 5:14).
 Have been sealed by the Holy Ghost (2 Cor. 1:22).
 Are joint heirs of God with Christ (Rom. 8:17).
 Are anointed (2 Cor. 1:21).
 Have been born again of imperishable seed (1 Pet. 1:23).
 This is how you and I should be regarded, Paul said. If you have embraced Christ, you are liberated from your sinful state and plunged into an entirely new identity in Christ. So if I am teaching you or conversing with you, I’m going to talk to you as the son or daughter of God that you really are.
 On the other hand, when I preach the gospel at an evangelistic campaign, I don’t talk like this because I am talking to people who are unsaved and unregenerate. They are still in their sins. They need the message of salvation by grace through faith. But believers know that salvation is not the finish line. It’s the starting line.
As a believer, you have been raised to a new, divine life with Christ. You have the ability now to live a holy life. You have the ability to do good works. You have the power to live in the truest, most biblical sense of that word. Dead men can do nothing. A dead man can’t be asked to do good works. But when God breathes His new life into you, He can then require something of you. And it is in this context that in the next verse Paul expresses this well-known passage—this piece of biblical gold that every Christian knows by heart.
 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. (v. 17, NKJV)
 This is too wonderful for words! The old you has died and was buried with Christ. That person, so full of lust and pride, is dead. That person who was a guilty sinner is gone. That person who was defined by people’s opinions or former abuses, who always felt inadequate, who always felt like a disappointment, who walked around with an orphan spirit, who was a slave to sin… That selfish, lazy, hateful, arrogant, undisciplined, unholy person has disappeared forever. He died. The old is gone—and the new has indeed come. You are now a new kind of human, made in God’s image, and capable of doing extraordinarily good works. He is for you, not against you. He loves you, and as a Father, He wants the best for your life. Now we can rise up, wake up, and fulfill His destiny for us. How wonderful! How glorious! But Paul doesn’t stop there. He goes on to more wonderful things still…
“I am so thankful the Lord does not leave us and I certainly do not want to leave from abiding in the Vine as John 15 tells us to do as ordained of God. Thanks for your prayers and concern for God will to be done in our lives.”
