Submitting to God’s Providence

To say 2020 was a difficult year is severe understatement. The beginning of a worldwide pandemic that robbed people of their jobs and loved ones. Cultural anger leading to violence and broken communities. An election that showed a deeply divided country.

Needless to say, people are glad that 2020 is finally over and are looking forward to the upcoming year. But, if there’s one lesson that we have learned from 2020, it’s that we don’t have as much control over our lives as we think we do. 

We don’t know what tomorrow or the next week or the next month will bring. 

We don’t know what event will completely turn the world upside down next. 

We cannot control everything.

Yet, God is sovereign and steadfast, holding us and this world in His hands. Unexpected and devastating events are bound to happen, yet we have hope in the fact that the battle has already been won! Jesus came to fulfill the work of the Christ, and declared “it is finished!” on that cross. So, rather than focusing on what we want to accomplish or experience in 2021, let us look towards the new year with a sober mind – reflecting on what 2020 has taught us about our plans – and plan on redirecting our trust to the Lord’s plan, holding fast to the hope that we have in Christ. 

“Our hope is not in the new year… but in the One who makes all things new.”

Praise God for 2020 and praise Him for what is to come in 2021!

Renew & Revive Spiritual Group Sign Up

This Renew & Revive (R&R) group is a program established by the team at Fully Health to provide a comprehensive approach to address all our needs – physical, mental, and spiritual. Through attending these complimentary group sessions, you will learn about the good news of Jesus Christ and how God will intervene during our journey toward achieving healing and greatest potential.

All individuals 18+ are welcome to attend! You do not need to be a Fully Health client or patient to attend. This service is free of charge. Please note, these sessions are not a clinical service. You may come and go as you like. We would be happy to have you whenever you may be available to join!

Wednesdays 7:30 – 8:30 pm on Zoom

What to expect from R&R
– To deeply understand, believe, and enjoy the Gospel, and know who I am
– To be able to have any question answered without judgment. For example, “Why am I struggling so much even though I have faith?” and “If I seek psychiatric treatment, does that mean my faith is small?”
– To experience the ability to fight the spiritual battle in life, especially regarding mental health struggles around me
– If Jesus is the Christ who solved my fundamental spiritual problem that led to all the “bad fruits” of life, then He is the answer to any other problem (mental and/or physical) that I may face on this earth.
