02-01: Resolution Time…

Resolution Time…

Quote
Until one is committed there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.  Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.  All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.  A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. ~William Murray~

Meditation
Make the commitment…today to act upon those things that you know in your heart you are called to do.  Don’t be concerned with exactly how everything will come together.  Simply take the first step and watch how things begin to fall into place to bring them about.  Chief among the things God wants for all of us is to get sober and into recovery!

Thought for the day– HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!
Start your year with a renewed commitment to recovery.  If you do not have a “good sponsor” then get one.  Yes I said a good one.  You know the kind that will hold you accountable, keep you focused on the steps and spiritual growth and not allow you to get too comfortable or too big for your own good.

Scriptures
As for me, I would seek God, and inquire of, and require Him, and to God would I commit my cause–Who does great things and unsearchable, marvelous things without number, Who gives rain upon the earth and sends water upon the fields, So that He sets on high those who are lowly, and those who mourn He lifts to safety. He frustrates the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise or anything of [lasting] worth.  He catches the [so-called] wise in their own trickiness, and the counsel of the schemers is brought to a quick end.  But God saves [the fatherless] from the sword of their mouth, and the needy from the hand of the mighty.  So the poor have hope, and iniquity shuts her mouth.
~Job 5:8-13,15 (Amp)~

..And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.  Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. ~Ephesians 3:17-21 (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
