17-08: The Power of Repetition…

The Power of Repetition…

Quote
Repeat anything often enough and it will start to become you.
~Tom Hopkins~

Meditation
Both words and actions
, when continually repeated, will begin to shape and form the very essence and nature of who you are, and what you may ultimately accomplish.  They can either provide for positive and constructive reinforcement, or negative and destructive reinforcement.  Be attentive, and ever vigilant in speaking and acting in a manner consistent with your desires, for they will indeed serve to fashion your destiny.  
 
Thought for the day 
Would I be happy to have Jesus join me for a normal day in my life?  Do I cuss like a sailor?  Do I hang around the water cooler and participate, actively or not, in off colored jokes or objectification of women/men just to fit in? What would my average day look like when scrutinized by Him and what would it say about the type of person I am? Am I really on the path that leads me to a spiritual awakening?            

Scriptures
The words of a [discreet and wise] man’s mouth are like deep waters [plenteous and difficult to fathom]…A [self-confident] fool’s lips bring contention, and his mouth invites a beating.  A [self-confident] fool’s mouth is his ruin, and his lips are a snare to himself.  The words of a whisperer or talebearer are as dainty morsels; they go down into the innermost parts of the body.  He who is loose and slack in his work is brother to him who is a destroyer…A man’s [moral] self shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth; and with the consequence of his words he must be satisfied [whether good or evil].  Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life].
~Proverbs 18:4,6,7,9,20,21 (Amp)~

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.  And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
~Colossians 3:16,17~

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
