We have said for a long time that animals teach unconditional love and Jim says, "The cow barn is my sanctuary with these boys." The other night one of the boys was wrestling with his thoughts while helping milk the cows and my husband kept trying to get things out of him. After quite sometime he told him that the only way he would win is if he turned his life over to Christ. When he was done milking he took him to the house to his houseparents and talked with the houseparents and then let them take over from there. The seed has been planted by both of the spiritual leaders in this young man's life now we just have to trust that he will get tired of the enemy triumphing over him and give it over to our BIG God!!!!
Please join with us in prayer....God knows his name....he even knows his thoughts day after day and the sorrow that is in his heart!
Thanks all for your prayers as we continue to wrestle with the enemy as he doesn't like it when he is about to lose another one of his. We couldn't do it without the prayer coverage from so many.

Knowing who Triumphs,
I love how we can use our animals to illustrate God's truth. Good one.
Hi Cathy - we can learn a lot from animals. Great photo and verse today. Praying for this young man's salvation.
Beautiful illustration of how God works. Nothing is too big for God. I pray that this young man may "grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that he may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God" (Ephesians 3:18-19). Prayer truly changes things and I believe that God will answer the prayer to transform his life.
I love the photo you chose to accompany the scripture. May others come along and water the seed which has been planted in the young man's life.
What a great photo and inspirational verse! And what a wonderful ministry! Joining with you in prayer for that young one!
GO GOD! What incredible work you are doing with these boys who will SOON be men. I see so much through the eyes of my friends foster children...they need love, they need Christ. What an awesome illustration. We wrestle and nothing is too big for our mighty God!
I SO needed this! Thank you for sharing this verse!
I had to chuckle a little bit at the thought-bubble for the dog! :)
But all funniness aside, that's exactly how it is a lot of the time. I'll definitely be praying for this young man to hold fast to God!
What a great ministry to be in--turning the lives of young men around! Glory to God!
Loved your photo and post.
The Lord does the miraculous--and I love how He uses His animals.
