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.

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)

RENEWAL Devotional: Avoid The Trap Of Burning Out

Written by Lydia D’Ross, Ordained Minister and Outreach Chaplain for Renewal at Brookhaven Hospital    

Pastors sometimes stretch themselves way too thin, because they feel the need to answer every call, attend every funeral services, and go to every hospital visit.

This can be a trap that will lead to burnout.

Pastors feel it is their duty to fulfill everyone’s needs, when In actuality, it is the pastor’s role to delegate to other people. Jethro, the father in law to Moses, gave advice to him because he saw that, while Moses was doing was good, it was wearing him out. In Exodus 18 Jethro warns Moses about burnout.  “What you are doing is not good. 18 You and these people who come to you will only wear yourselves out. The work is too heavy for you; you cannot handle it alone. “

This message can be applied to all of us. We must be careful, and avoid the trap of doing so much that we burn ourselves out. Our body gives us signals that we must take care of ourselves.  Sometimes it can be easier to put yourself on the list if you realize that not taking care of yourself will make it impossible to care for others.  Signals like, lack of sleep, feeling tired all the time, and even depression could be alerting you to a problem of overdoing it.

So if Jethro needed to give his advice to Moses to delegate other leaders to do some of his tasks, then it might be good advice for us to follow as well.

Take the time to take care of yourself. Avoid traps by recognizing the signs, by listening to your body and think about ways to delegate some of your responsibilities. Trust in someone and train them. You will be very happy that you did, and your body will thank you for it.
