A Safe Place for Good Kids

When it comes to sending your child to a residential treatment facility, it’s normal to be torn. You know your son needs more help than you can provide at home, but you hate to send him away. And you’ve heard the horror stories: Five-minute phone calls once a week, prescription drugs that do nothing but dull personalities, and negative influences from adolescent delinquents, such as kids who were selling drugs and carrying guns.

When your child is in mental health treatment or a rehabilitation center, it often feels like one step forward and two steps back. Your daughter may be pleasant and happy on the phone, and then you find out her real motivation was to get you to send her a new pair of sneakers. Now you’re second guessing her motives and feeling defeated; just when you thought you were seeing progress, you're now seeing it as manipulation.

For years, I inadvertently taught law and works, with a little faith and grace mixed in. One cancelled the other. However, I discovered the following Scripture, which prophesies that man would no longer have to perform through good behavior in order to receive the blessing found in a relationship with God.

“I will give you a new heart and a new mind. I will take away your stubborn heart of stone and give you an obedient heart. I will put my spirit in you and will see to it that you follow my laws and keep all the commands I have given you.”
EZEKIEL 36:26-27
