We long for fulfilling relationships, ones that give us life. But often we find ourselves in relationships that are empty, draining, and unfulfilling. Why? For many of us, we are afraid of relationships and getting close to others. We are afraid of intimacy and being known. For others, we don’t know what that would even look like. This message will help us to get a vision for what relationships could be and willingness to open ourselves up to dealing with unhealthy relationships in our lives and move towards healthy ones.

When Relationships Get Hard
Fully Charged • May 17, 2020 • Glen Elliott
Some relationships are hard. There are people in our lives that have hurt, abused, harmed, or taken advantage of us. Yet Jesus is clear that we are to love those who are difficult or even seem impossible to love. Loving the difficult often requires that we forgive them for the wrong done to us. Forgiveness is the key that unlocks love.
What Makes Relationships Fulfilling

If you want to be a true friend or the best husband or wife or co-worker, then be a person who will challenge them to help them use their life to make a difference for others. You see, encouragement is your best gift to someone as you help them get better at loving and doing good for others. Encouragement means helping people get unstuck so they can love and do good.
Hope in an Isolated World
Fully Charged • May 3, 2020 • Josh Reich
Loneliness is at an all-time high. Especially in this season of sheltering in place. There is a crucial truth that we miss: Being alone is different from being lonely. God meets us in our loneliness. He has something for us as we are alone. Throughout Scripture, God spoke the clearest and the loudest to those who were alone with Him. We have this unique opportunity for silence and solitude so that we re-enter a post-Covid world closer to Jesus than when we entered it.
