Truth needs to be told!

It amazes me every time we have a major confrontation here at the ranch with one or a couple boys how God unfolds it.  It is amazing to see these boys that had no care of disrespecting authority before coming here, start to feel the guilt and spill it all out. 

The other day Jim asked a question trying to get one boy to confess of his wrong doing, and all three ended up spilling out something.  It is pretty amazing how God starts to work on their hearts. 

We hope that we can teach these boys that God does know everything we do and say.  Then they will start thinking before they do or say anything.  This is something we all need to do, I know at times I'm just as guilty to not think before doing or saying something's.  We need to ask the Lord to help us all to picture Jesus standing right next to us.  Then ask ourselves would HE be happy with what I'm about to say or do?

Psalm 139:3-5  "You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.  Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely.  You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me."

The hardest thing to break in working with these boys is their lying tongue, it is so natural to them.  Please pray for us as we continue to teach these boys that the TRUTH needs to be told.  Because the TRUTH will set you FREE!

John 8:32 "Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

God is still in the miracle business today and he continues to show us miracles in the lives of young men.  Thank you all who are a part of this ministry.
