28-08: Change…for the Good!

Change…for the Good!

Quote
New ideas stir from every corner.  They show up disguised innocently as
interruptions, contradictions and embarrassing dilemmas.  Beware of total
strangers and friends alike who shower you with comfortable sameness, and
remain open to those who make you uneasy, for they are the true messengers of
the future.    ~Rob Lebow~

Meditation

Turmoil, discomfort and a hunger
for something more, are most often the agents of change and growth. 
Rather than fearing those things that challenge, bewilder or oppose us, what we
should truly fear is developing a sense of comfort, satisfaction and
complacency with regard to where we are and what we believe.  Look for the
lessons to be learned, and the opportunities inherent in every difficult circumstance…they
are indeed fertile soil, in which the seeds of new perceptions, ideas and
invention can begin to grow and flourish.    

 

Thought for the
day 

Our need to change need not affect
our spiritual principles. 
Open-mindedness is good as long as it is driven by an internal, not
external, desire to seek the truth. We must not allow our faith, hope, desire,
thirst and hunger for God’s holy truth to be weakened by secular debate.  The truth for Christians is that, we
don’t have a lot of answers, and that is OK because we live by faith and we
don’t need to see to believe.

 

Scriptures

I have told you these things, so
that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence.  In the world you
have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer
[take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]!  For I have overcome the
world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]
~Jesus / John 16:33 (Amp)~

Out of my distress I called upon the Lord;  the Lord answered me and set
me free and in a large place.  The Lord is on my side; I will not fear.  What can man do to me? ~Psalm
118:5-6 (Amp)~

He delivers the afflicted in their affliction and opens their ears [to His
voice] in adversity. ~Job 36:15 (Amp)~

Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction,
your teachers will be hidden no more; with your own eyes you will see
them.  Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a
voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it."  ~Isaiah 30:20,21 (NIV)~

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
