Just Do It!

Just Do It!
 
Quote
Well done is better than well said. ~Benjamin Franklin~
Meditation
How often do we say that we intend to begin doing something at some point in the future…when we have more money, more time, more training, more help, more resolve, etc., etc., etc.?  How often does that tomorrow never come?  Scripture and all spiritual writing are full of pleas and exhortations about the need to change, act and do!  Decisions are not action. No matter what it is that you hope to accomplish, or what changes that you would like to make in your life, begin in some small way today!
Thought for the day
What is it that I can begin to do today that will help my recovery?  Is it making 1 or 2 daily calls to sober members?  Is it attending 2 or 3 meetings per week instead of one?  Is it calling my sponsor for guidance and support?  Is it doing my step work? Is it volunteering for service?  Is it being truthful about my fears?  Surely there is one thing I can begin to do TODAY that is helpful to my recovery.
 
Scriptures
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. ~Jesus, Matthew 5:16~

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. ~Ephesians 2:10~

So also faith, if it does not have works (deeds and actions of obedience to back it up), by itself is destitute of power (inoperative, dead).  You see that a man is justified (pronounced righteous before God) through what he does and not alone through faith [through works of obedience as well as by what he believes].  For as the human body apart from the spirit is lifeless, so faith apart from [its] works of obedience is also dead. ~James 2:17,26 (Amp.)~

For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. ~Matthew 16:27~

Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. ~Titus 2:14~

About SLAA Tilburg

Wat is seks- en liefdeverslaving? Wij in S.L.A.A. geloven dat seks- en liefdeverslaving een voortschrijdende ziekte is, die niet kan worden genezen maar die, zoals veel ziekten, wel tot staan kan worden gebracht. Zij kan verschillende vormen aannemen – inclusief (maar niet beperkt tot) een dwangmatige behoefte aan seks, extreme afhankelijkheid van één persoon (of meerdere personen), en/of een voortdurend in beslag genomen worden door romantiek, affaires of fantasieën. Er is sprake van een obsessief-dwangmatig patroon, seksueel of emotioneel (of beide), waarin relaties of seksuele activiteiten in toenemende mate destructief geworden zijn voor de loopbaan, het gezinsleven en het gevoel van zelfrespect. Als seks- en liefdeverslaving wordt veronachtzaamd, wordt zij altijd erger. Wanneer wij echter een eenvoudig programma volgen dat voor een reeks van mannen en vrouwen met dezelfde ziekte succesvol is gebleken, kunnen wij herstellen. In S.L.A.A. leren wij de realiteit te accepteren dat wij deze verslaving hebben
