RENEWAL is designed to offer hope and comfort to people suffering from mental health disorders or addiction disorders, and support to the people who love them. Our approach is based on respect for the dignity of the people we serve and the belief that through a faith-based program, life-changing results are possible.

RENEWAL: Christian Treatment and Recovery is an optional treatment supplement available through Brookhaven Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma. At Brookhaven, we understand that when you are suffering from an eating disorder, a personality disorder, a behavioral health disorder or chemical dependency, life can seem utterly hopeless. It can cause Christians to feel abandoned and distant from God. However, by strengthening your spirituality, in conjunction with our professional medical services, you can experience results that you never thought were possible.

RENEWAL is based on the belief in:

God who created us and loves us (Genesis 1:26)
Jesus Christ who redeems us (Isaiah 53:5)
The Holy Spirit who guides us (Acts 1:8)

When you participate in RENEWAL, you’re part of something much bigger than yourself. Brookhaven clients receive expert care from our team of mental professionals. Treatment is solution-focused and success-oriented. Our goal is to minimize symptoms, help individuals address life problems and live fulfilling lives. Sometimes healing requires a helping hand. We’re here to provide the guidance and support you need to recover.

Anger Issues

Share

by Rev. Tom Gray

Anger is rarely a positive emotion. It is possible to have righteous anger, but I feel that most of my anger comes out of selfish responses. Anger is usually a quick response, unthought, to what annoys us. The Bible gives serious warning about it.

“But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.” Colossians 3:8

The reason we should avoid anger is the damage it causes. If we feel we’ve been wronged, anger almost creates a good feeling. But what would that feeling produce if we should act on it? Division. Separation. Hurt. Embarrassment. I could write more, but you get the drift.

Scripture gives a good admonition to memorize for when we get angry.

“Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for man’s anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.” James 1:20

The Bible rightly points out that anger can quickly lead us to sin. Whatever “pleasure” we get from venting our anger isn’t worth the collateral damage.

So, what do we do when anger arises? Stop, think, and pray.  If you really need to confront the person who angered you, wait a day or two to calm down. If you still need to, then meet with that person. It can be a good thing to include a mutual, trustworthy friend in the meeting.

And be thankful for the following:

“‘The Lord is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion….” Numbers 14:18
