The Power of Love…

The Power of Love…

Quote

It makes no difference how deeply
seeded
may
be the trouble, how hopeless the outlook, how muddled the tangle, how great the
mistake.  A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all. ~ Emmet
Fox ~

Meditation

Purpose in your heart to do only those things which
are out of a spirit of love, and you will find your life easily filled with
peace, joy and satisfaction…with love returned to you in abundance.  It
is in recognizing and embracing the great love that has been extended toward us
from above, that enables us to walk in that same love, and extend it toward
others.

 

Thought for the day
It is easy to love those who are lovable.  But how about those who are not?

Make no mistake about it, caring, being attentive,
mindful and loving to those who are family and or friends does not help us
qualify as devout Christians. 

If your idea of turning your life around is the
diversion of your obsession from self to those who are considered yours…think
again!  

It is no great deed to love our own.  Jesus said, even evil men can love
their families.  The true test of
love comes in how we treat our neighbors, our fellow workers and most of
all…strangers!

 

 

Scriptures
Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and
saying, Master, which is the great commandment in the law?  Jesus said
unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy
soul, and with all thy mind.  And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt
love thy neighbour as thyself.  On these two commandments hang all the law
and the prophets.
~Matthew 22:35-40~

Keep out of debt and owe no man anything, except to love one another;  for
he who loves his neighbor [who practices loving others] has fulfilled the law
[relating to one’s fellowmen, meeting all its requirements].  The
commandments, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not kill, You shall not
steal, You shall not covet (have an evil desire), and any other commandment,
are summed up in the single command, You shall love your neighbor as [you do]
yourself. ~Romans 13:8,9

He who does not love has not become acquainted with God [does not and never did
know Him], for God IS love. ~1 John 4:8 (Amp)~

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever
believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. ~John 3:16~

 

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
