What does God think of me?

Many of us grew up without adequate amounts of positive affirmation from people around us, whether that’s authority figures or peers. This can leave deep wounds that methods like repeating self-affirmations cannot fully heal. And to make matters worse, we sometimes receive wounds from those who represent God in our lives.

In those moments, Satan can continuously condemn believers using incorrect theology:

You’re a sinner and a slave to sin.

You’re unrighteous and deserving of hell.

You’re incapable of pleasing God.

You’re unworthy and unlovable.

While these may have rang true at one point – the ultimate truth is that Jesus came down for the very purpose of redeeming you. He saw each of us at our worst, and still thought we were worth leaving everything for.

If you have accepted Jesus into your life, those condemnations are lies.

You’re a child of God and guilt-free.

You’ve been made righteous and are a citizen of heaven.

God sees you as perfect and is pleased with you.

You’re in God’s possession – chosen and holy and fully loved.

Not only has Jesus triumphed for sin and death – that victory is shared with us! For those moments where this may be difficult to believe, or seems like a nice thought more than a living reality, please take a moment to know “nothing can separate you from the love of God.” (Romans 8)

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.
