God gives a heart of flesh

God is doing some amazing things inside the hearts of the children, He is a father to the fatherless. One kid when I first met him he wouldn’t participate. If a kid was next to him he would pick a fight and try to punch or kick them. Whenever he was there you would know trying to teach or have conversation would be challenging because he would be so disruptive. The first sentence I remember him saying was “I don’t believe in God and don’t try to tell me He is real, and hell rocks.” then he sat back in his chair and folded his arms. The woman he said it to had the best response. She said ok I’m not but God will. After about a month and a half a kid who seemed to pay no attention to what we were talking about and being disruptive completely changed. He went from being violent toward others to being kind. He went from arguing/disruptive to telling other kids to be quiet and listen. From not participating in activities to wanting to talk to Jesus and to hear God speak to him. During one activity we had them ask Jesus how He is helping them and to write it down then to write down how they are helping Jesus. He said Jesus is helping me to be respectful, kind,and to not hurt others. On a prayer request a week later he asked God to give him a home, for God to help him be respectful, and at the bottom of the card he wrote I have one comment God Rocks! I know it was our prayers that broke through and God changed his heart. He isn’t at the facility anymore I think he has been placed in foster care. As I’m writing this I am asking God to bring someone in his life to continue to teach him to walk with the Lord Jesus, and please do the same. This kid is a leader and one day will be a mighty man of God.
