What do you do when a person you love is in a tough spot and needs help? They spiral downward and downward and know what to do to get themselves back on track, but won't. You can't say anything because they already know what to do, but for some reason they don't have the faith they need to believe that it WILL work. They are looking for a way to make it work all by themselves, and they don't want to hear that from you of all people. They just get more and more frustrated and sink lower and lower and things get harder and harder. You get to the point where you don't know how to help them, support them anymore. They have to figure it out on their own, but you are afraid they'll hit rock bottom before that happens, and THAT is just no good for anyone involved. So do you say something in the interest of all parties who will be affected or do you let them keep sinking, dragging everyone else down with them? Right now my plan is to pray, earnestly and continuously. Hey, it worked for me, maybe my prayers can work miracles, too.
