One day the kid who was writing the book came to me and said, “Ron. I know God sent you hear for me.” It’s funny because weeks prior I had suspected just that. On my last day he came to me and said, “I know that He is sending you to help some other kids.” Then he promised, “I will continue what you have started here and will help all the others who come into the program.” You see, God works by having us work in the lives of others who in turn continue His work in more.
I adamantly believe that trial and tribulations are God’s way of preparing us for the next level in our journey, it really helps to hear it from friends. Like Pastor Steve said, in not so many words, if any at all, we all need to take a nice big piece of humble pie every once in a while. What we need to remember is that we have only become very good at our current level and the next will require much more skill to master. We are on an eternal journey of transformation.
