A Time to Bloom…

A Time to Bloom…

It takes courage to push yourself to places that you have never been before…to test your limits…to break through barriers.  And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. ~Anais Nin~

In every difficult situation, you are faced with two choices…to go boldly forward, or to shrink back in fear.  Choosing to shrink back is always the more painful in the long run, as you will ultimately have to face the same challenges again and again, in one form or another.  Choose boldly, and watch the perceived obstacles begin to supernaturally disappear!
Thought for the day
It is truly remarkable to know that after barely a few months of diligently working the 12 step recovery program that some of us have truly come a long way because we are making good choices.  In the past we never had the luxury of choice…we needed to act out or succumb to our sinful nature. And here we are a few days removed from our compulsion and facing decisions about changing our character and being re-born.  This is a true testament of the power of God (May we continue to seek Him) and the pliability and strength of our hidden character emerging like a butterfly from its cocoon.  Continue to choose wisely …and act accordingly

"…and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.  And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”  ~Jesus / Matthew 16:18,19 (NKJV)~

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. ~2 Timothy 1:7~

Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace…that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it]. ~Hebrews 4:16 (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
