05-11: Suddenly… over time!

Suddenly…over time!

Quote
What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly.
~Richard Bach~

Meditation
There generally comes a defining moment in everyone’s life when it will seem as though our entire world as we know it, has come to an end.  What has always worked in the past, no longer works for us.  Relationships that we felt would last a lifetime are suddenly taken from us forever.  Or, we simply feel that we can’t go on another day the way that things are.  That is precisely the moment when we can be changed and transformed, in order to become all that we were meant to be…a “suddenly”, when everything comes into focus and we recognize exactly who we are, why we are here, and to Whom we belong.  Take heart if you are at that moment today…look up to where your help truly comes from…and be prepared for your “suddenly”!

Thought for the day
The “suddenly” moment spoken of above will typically come immediately following a period of utter despair and then ultimate surrender.  Have I suffered enough to surrender?  Do I truly live out my 3rd step decision each and every day?   Or am I giving to the Lord only those things that I can’t deal with.  Is He my co-pilot? If so I had better switch seats with Him!

Scriptures
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom).  And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.
~2 Corinthians 13:17,18 (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
