Christ-Centered Intervention

By Glen Kerby

Steps to an intervention from a Christian perspective:
1) We get everyone that is involved in this person's life to agree to meet for prayer in this matter. We need to remember that if it is that person's time then God is working in his or her life as we prepare to meet them.

2) We get the family to agree to the two choices and the only two choices that this person has to pick from.

3) We do an intervention plan, we pick a safe place for everyone to gather.

To "Let Go" Takes Love

To "let go" does not mean to stop caring;
it means I can't do it for someone else.

To "let go" is not to cut myself off;
it is the realisation that I can't control another.

Ten Things Someone Might Need From You

I felt lost, and I desperately wanted God to show up. Instead, people appeared and gradually helped me toward the light. Only later did I realize that was how God shows up.

How can you help someone who needs you?

I've been working on a presentation for folks who are working in difficult areas of ministries. Since I'm a wheelchair user, I'm supposed to offer a seated perspective of things people have done that have been helpful and some that haven't.

Here's my list so far. Hopefully you'll help me with something I've missed.

Is Alcoholism Controlling Your Life?

It happens without warning. It creeps into your life and all of a sudden, you're hooked. At first you're the life of the party, and later you're the drunk of the party. When you're young, twenties and thirties, your body can handle all the booze, no problem. But mentally it impairs the way you view and feel the world around you.

Most of the time, alcoholics don't know that alcohol has taken hold of their life. This is called the denial stage. Alcoholics feel if they can get up and go to work everyday, even though secretly they have an excruciating headache, they don't have a problem.

But what keeps the alcoholic going throughout the workday is in knowing that after work, they'll have those highballs or beers, which will in fact; make them feel like their old self again.

To the Family: Rebuilding Relationships after Addiction

Psalms 23:6 KJV
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Recovery from addiction and alcoholism provides many rewards and gifts that help you on the spiritual journey through the good and bad times you will encounter living life on life's terms. Nobody said the road would be easy so you we have to remember that God does not give you more than you can manage. Put your trust in God and God will take care of you.
