Returning…(me and them)

Working in treatment is like watching a revolving door… they come in, go out and seemingly return. Its sad to know that either they learned nothing, chose not to learn, or they just like sin. YES- I said like sin!! Theres a rush in doing what you know is wrong. The pleasure of sin is but for a season… I believe that some of the girls miss it. There has to be a renewel of the minds and a transformation has to occur.

Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

If there  is no change, you will only fall back into your old ways.

Proverbs 26:11 As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.

Be Blessed

In need of love

We have girls with some serious records- assault and battery, domestic violence, attempted murder, arson, theft, prostitution,,, almost anything you can think of. You know what ties them all together? The need for love

Girls with the hardest hearts and seemingly a lack of feelings/emotions, always manage to need a hug from me. I believe there is an innate desire to feel love. God is love so I think its in everyone because He created and IS love. I know these girls have been hurt, some feel as if their hearts cant take another beating- so they shut themselves off. Some girls  have been abandoned and dont know what  loveImage feels like. As long as my arms work I’ll give hugs and I’ll try my best to show them the love of Christ in my behavior but also in deed. I’ll go more into love in another post, God Bless.

 

1John 3:18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

Girls “turning gay”?

I once asked this girl why she was gay. Her reply was that her father treated her badly and had someone rape to to teach her a lesson. She feels like in a relationship with a girl, she can treat the girl how she desired to be treated. Now of course I shared how God views homosexuality. She said shes aware- her grandfather is a deacon. Another girl said her grandfather is a pastor and he molested her for years. She is now what is called a “stud”. Satan was able to trick them into believing that their desires can be fulfilled by another girl. Thinking about kissing a boy makes them sick!!  They KNOW the word yet their flesh/lust desires  another female.

Romans 1:28 They did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind.

rep·ro·bate  (rpr-bt)

n.

1. A morally unprincipled person.
2. One who is predestined to damnation.
adj.

1. Morally unprincipled; shameless.
2. Rejected by God and without hope of salvation.
tr.v. rep·ro·bat·edrep·ro·bat·ingrep·ro·bates

1. To disapprove of; condemn.
2. To abandon to eternal damnation. Used of God.

For those that may not be versed in the bible or even saved, here is what the King James Bible says about women/homosexuality…

Romans 1:26 | For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change their natural use into that which is against nature:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly

Lust in this place has made some girls be gay while their locked up. They sometimes have several girlfriends. Getting caught kissing, fondling each other, trying to peek in showers.

But- God is a healer and can provide restoration!!!! A transformation needs to occur.

Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

 

 

Amen

 

 

Teen Girls doing time

I feel like blogging about this topic may clarify, explain and open this up for discussion. I’ve worked with girls in a “treatment facility” for some time, somewhere in the U.S. I’ve seen a lot so I have a lot to talk about. I’ve met girls who were/are neglected, sell their bodies, have been kidnapped, self-harm, tried to commit suicide… the list is to broad to finish. These girls are someones child, sister, best-friend, even mother.  I’ve learned a lot and I’ve shared a bunch. I have lots of stories!!! Some will have you cracking up, others will make you shed tears….
