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.

RENEWAL Devotional: Are You Geared up? (Part 2)


iStockBible226449_L1 Written by: Lydia D’Ross, Renewal Program Outreach Chaplain and ordained minister

We discussed last week the importance of wearing the full armor of God rather than only part of it.  When we do this, it opens the door for opportunities.

Apostle Paul instructs the mature Christian that through his promises “he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man” (Ephesians 4: 15).

To strengthen our inner man, we learn to wear our armor effectively and apply the Word of God daily. The Word of God affects every level of society and serves to strengthen a nation.

In the last book of Ephesians, Apostle Paul reveals that we can be an effective solider by learning the enemy’s tactics. Apostle Paul begins saying in Ephesians 6: 10 “… be strong in the Lord…” V 11 says, put on the whole armor of God…this is a command, not an option. Apostle Paul reveals that when we put on the whole armor, we are able to stand against anything that comes our way.  We occupy areas that are uncharted. We cannot win our ground victorious without using our armor- the tools God has given to us to use daily.  We pray against those things that influence our mind, soul and spirit. We overcome those obstacles by applying the Word of God that specifically addresses those situations in order to become victorious overcomers.

The first armor of God is your helmet of salvation. For believers, it is important that you know who you are in Christ.  This is your true identity.

If you are a person of peace and a fearful situation occurs, the strategy to overcome is to put on your helmet of salvation. You are to cover and renew your mind with thoughts that agree with the Word of God.  Read His word daily, and if needed, surround yourself in support groups so you can obtain the tools you need to strengthen your mind. We fill our minds with the truth, which is the Word of God. We study the word and apply it to our situation.

In our next devotional, we will discuss the breastplate of righteousness.
