27-08: 100% Success

100% Success


Never let the odds keep you from pursuing what you know in your heart you were
meant to do. ~Satchel Paige~

I’ve heard it said in meeting rooms that
the recovery rate for folks in the program is anywhere (depending on the fellowship)
from 10% to 60%.  Nothing could be
further from the truth and if you listen to those naysayers you will only add
more self doubt to your destiny.  The
success rate of addicts, of all types, who recover from their addiction, is
if they will follow this simple (12 step)
program and commit to a life of holiness
. The moment that you begin to follow a bold vision
for something, it will likely appear that everything is opposed to your ability
to accomplish it.  People will begin to tell you all the reasons why it
will not work, and attempt to instill doubt.  You will begin to conjure up
in your own mind, just how impossible the task may be.  You must actively
shut out the voices of the naysayers, and cast down the imaginations that would
try and convince you that the vision is unattainable. 


Thought for the

Remain focused on the promised
result…sobriety and then recovery.  If you are willing to pursue it with
patience, in prayer and meditation, the rewards will very likely be even
greater than you first anticipated. Soon enough you will be picking up a
medallion for a 1 year anniversary.

Then the disciples came to Jesus in private and asked, "Why couldn’t we
drive it out?"  He replied, "Because you have so little
faith.  I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard
seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will
move.  Nothing will be impossible for you.  ~Matthew 17:18-21 (NIV)~

Trust in the LORD and do good; 
Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.  Delight yourself in the
LORD;  And He will give you the desires of your heart.  Commit your
way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it.
~Psalm 37:3-5 (NASB)~

Jesus looked at them and said,
"With man this is impossible, but not with God;  all things are
possible with God."
~Mark 10:27 (NIV)~


Heavenly Father, as I start out my day I first want to
acknowledge your greatness and my littleness.  Help me to know throughout the day that you are the King of
the Universe. You offer me all day long
the ability to rest in you and tap into your immense Power.  Help me cope with the little stuff I
face which because of my littleness seems insurmountable and overwhelming to
me.  Help me to stay in the now
today and to reach out to my brothers when in need, that I might not think that
everything I face I need to tackle alone!   Most of all remind me, when I forget, that you are
Abba, Father waiting for me to come to you at anytime of the day or night.  In your glorious name I pray.  Amen.



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
