Oddly enough I was able to deal with the volatile environment and bring sweeping changes to the program. The Holy Spirit enabled me to pour His loving energy into the hearts of the children. Every day I would picture their faces in my mind and repeat to myself “I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you.” Things became unusually calm very quickly at the home.
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.
