Whole Lot of Shaking Going on…

Meditation

Our greatest insights, and most
valuable lessons, often come after great times of trial and difficulty. 
It is in those moments that we can see clearly, areas in which we need to grow
and develop, changes that need to be made, and strength can be found in our own
weakness.  If you feel as though your world is being shaken, hold on to
your faith, and when all is said and done look for that which you can take from
the experience.  Benefit from the
wisdom, power and courage you’ve earned as you go forward living life on life’s
terms.

 

Thought for the
day

There may be times in our lives
when we just want to throw our hands up and say “the heck with it”.  When our core as human beings is being
shaken by the things of life, just know that God will never allow us to deal
with more than we can handle. Such trials prepare us to witness and help others
who will soon be going thru similar issues.  Happily we will be able to tell them we did not have to
drink, use or act out in order to get through those difficulties.

Scriptures
There he came to a cave and lodged in it; and behold, the word of the Lord came
to him, and He said to him, What are you doing here, Elijah?  He replied,
I have been very jealous for the Lord God of hosts; for the Israelites have
forsaken Your covenant, thrown down Your altars, and killed Your prophets with
the sword. And I, I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it
away.  And He said, Go out and stand on the mount before the Lord. And
behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains and
broke in pieces the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind;
and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; 
And after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after
the fire [a sound of gentle stillness and] a still, small voice. ~1 Kings
19:9-12 (Amp)~

Well, how much more do I need to say?
It would take too long to recount the stories of the faith of Gideon, Barak,
Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel, and all the prophets. By faith these people
overthrew kingdoms, ruled with justice, and received what God had promised
them. They shut the mouths of lions, quenched the flames of fire, and escaped
death by the edge of the sword. Their weakness was turned to strength. They
became strong in battle and put whole armies to flight. ~Hebrews 11:32-34
(NLT)~

But He said to me, My grace (My favor
and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger
and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are
made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in
[your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses
and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest
(yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me!  So for the sake of
Christ, I am well pleased and take pleasure in infirmities, insults, hardships,
persecutions, perplexities and distresses; for when I am weak [in human
strength], then am I [truly] strong (able, powerful in divine strength).
~2 Corinthians 12:9,10 (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
