10-08: Believing is Seeing…

Believing is Seeing…
People only see what they are prepared to see. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

Don’t limit your opportunities by having preconceived notions as to whether something is possible or not.  Be open, and allow your mind to conceive the unlimited potential that is inherent in every new concept or situation…if only you will believe.  Trust in the promptings that urge you on…expect new understanding and insight as you press in, and you will receive it. 
Thought for the day
When “Ol Scratch” is messing with your head whispering how difficult it is for you to recover and inviting you to sit on that favorite throne of ours, the pity pot, call upon the God given spirit in you. Don’t watch those old tapes of past failures. Believe in yourself.  Ask your spirit to help you see the truth of your condition.  You are no better or worse than anyone else who has turned his life around in recovery with the help of God.   Do not entertain the feelings of worthlessness and disappointment but rather re-start your day with a resolve to just get through that moment by calling upon the loving God you are coming to know and asking Him to replace those negative thoughts with promptings of service and thoughts of appreciation for all we truly have.   Affirm your recovery by repeating this truth; I am worthy of His love and He will heal me because He loves me unconditionally!

I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.
~Proverbs 8:12~

But blessed are your eyes, because they see; and your ears, because they hear.  I assure you, many prophets and godly people have longed to see and hear what you have seen and heard, but they could not. ~ Jesus / Matthew 13:16,17 (NLT)~

However, as it is written:  "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him" but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit.  The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.
~1 Corinthians 2:9,10 (NIV)~

Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed. ~Jesus / John 20:29 (NKJV)~

"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
