03-09: True Security

True Security

Only in growth, reform, and change, paradoxically enough, is true security to be found. 
~Anne Morrow Lindbergh~
Don’t fear change, when the thing to really fear is becoming stagnant, and not continuing to grow and develop into all that you can be.  Every new experience, whether it is positive or negative, serves to develop deeper understanding, improving our abilities, and maturing our character.  Embrace the process, and allow it to bring out the best in you… for if instead you shrink from it, you will only end up spending life disappointedly unfulfilled.
Thought for the day
If you want something you’ve never had, you are going to have to do something you’ve never done!  So what is it that you want?  Do you want to stop living life as an addict?  Do you want to stop being a self-obsessed little clot?  Do you want to be a godly man?  Then…what are you willing to change?  How are you willing to grow and be reformed?   This is a program of spiritual growth that is available to us only through a deep commitment to change.  Are you really willing to try it?  Hey if it doesn’t work we will refund your misery!
Therefore let us go on and get past the elementary stage in the teachings and doctrine of Christ (the Messiah), advancing steadily toward the completeness and perfection that belong to spiritual maturity…For the soil which has drunk the rain that repeatedly falls upon it and produces vegetation useful to those for whose benefit it is cultivated, partakes of a blessing from God.  But if [that same soil] persistently bears thorns and thistles, it is considered worthless and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned.  But we do [strongly and earnestly] desire for each of you to show the same diligence and sincerity [all the way through] in realizing and enjoying the full assurance and development of [your] hope until the end, In order that you may not grow disinterested and become [spiritual] sluggards, but imitators, behaving as do those who through faith by their leaning of the entire personality on God in Christ in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness) and by practice of patient endurance and waiting are [now] inheriting the promises…
~Hebrews 6:1, 7,8,11,12 (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
