Believe It Or Not…

Believe It Or Not…

Quote
For those who believe, no proof is necessary.  For those who don’t believe, no proof is possible. ~Author Unknown~


Meditation

When we enter a 12 Step fellowship we concentrate on getting physically sober…and so we should.  But soon thereafter we’re apt to confront the reality that perhaps our entire belief system is false, built on faulty principles.  This can be horrific and it is one of the causes of relapse.  Some of us are unwilling to consider that reality and refuse to do the work necessary for a complete paradigm shift.

Everything that you think, do, have, or are is based entirely on what you believe.  You are not limited by circumstance, ability, or what you may see with the natural eye…only by what you are willing to accept as the truth for yourself. 

 

Thought for the day

Am I willing to consider I have been wrong?  Am I willing to do anything necessary to become a new creation?  Do I believe that God cares for me enough to bring me to this place, at this exact time for a total conversion?

What do I really believe?

Scriptures
When He entered the house, the blind men came up to Him, and Jesus said to them, "Do you believe that I am able to do this?" They said to Him, "Yes, Lord."  Then He touched their eyes, saying, "It shall be done to you according to your faith."  And their eyes were opened… ~Matthew 9:28-30 (NASB)~

And Jesus, replying, said to them, Have faith in God [constantly].  Truly I tell you, whoever says to this mountain, Be lifted up and thrown into the sea! and does not doubt at all in his heart but believes that what he says will take place, it will be done for him.  For this reason I am telling you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe (trust and be confident) that it is granted to you, and you will [get it].
~Mark 11:22-24 (Amp)~

“What do you mean, ‘If I can’?” Jesus asked. “Anything is possible if a person believes.” ~Mark 9:23 (NLT)~

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
