Thoughts for Today
If your child or someone else you care about is struggling with a life-controlling problem, the goal should be to place that person in God's hands and allow Him to work with your loved one on His time frame. As much as we might want to, we cannot manipulate or demand that a person changeonly Jesus can change a heart.
As helpers, we can do these three things to help struggling people:
Father, my loved one is struggling with a life-controlling problem. Teach me how to create an environment for change and help me trust you for your will in my loved one's life. In Jesus' name

CloseBut Not Too Close by Dr. Jimmy Ray Lee. A complement to the Concerned Persons small group study, this booklet is written primarily for those who want to help someone close to them who is enslaved by the stronghold of a life-controlling issue. It is also designed to help someone who is suffering the consequences of a loved one's problem.
