Seeing the Unseen…

Seeing the Unseen…

Quote
It gives me a deep, comforting sense that things seen are temporal and things unseen are eternal.  ~Helen Keller~

Meditation
Is the truly blind person the one who can’t see the things of this world, or the one that can’t see beyond them?  In order for anything which you desire to be made manifest in your life, you must first be able to see it in the eye of your spirit completely…having determined there, that it already is a reality, simply not yet in evidence.  Be steadfast in faith and hope, without wavering, and experience the power of the unseen.

 

Thought for the day

Can I see the solution?  Can I picture myself as a man of total integrity, authenticity and faith, free of addictions and the shackles of my past life, being led to my eternal resting place by my Creator?  Can I share my ideal with everyone I meet?  Can I give them a glimpse of what I truly desire to be or am I too busy conforming to life in the world with all its secular standards?

Scriptures
For God Who said, Let light shine out of darkness, has shone in our hearts so as [to beam forth] the Light for the illumination of the knowledge of the majesty and glory of God [as it is manifest in the Person and is revealed] in the face of Jesus Christ (the Messiah).  However, we possess this precious treasure…in vessels of earth, that the grandeur and exceeding greatness of the power may be shown to be from God and not from ourselves…We consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen;  for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting. ~2 Corinthians 4:6,7,18 (Amp)~

NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].
~Hebrews 11:1 (Amp)~

For we walk by faith [we regulate our lives and conduct ourselves by our conviction or belief respecting man’s relationship to God and divine things, with trust and holy fervor;  thus we walk] not by sight or appearance.
~2 Corinthians 5:7 (Amp)~

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
