03-01: In the Seeking… you will find it!

In the Seeking… you will find it!

Quote
Look and you will find it–what is unsought will go undetected. ~Sophocles~

Meditation
A dream, vision or desire is nothing more than that, without putting forth the effort to seek it out.  Whatever it is that you are looking for, it is not going to just come to you.  You must breathe it, think it, meditate on it, pray for it but mostly pursue it; go after it with all your heart.  If you do, you will most assuredly find it…but be open to the fact that it may not always come to you packaged in the way that you expect.

Thought for the day
What is it that you really desire?  If it is not a deep spiritual connection with God and a desire to live in His will then I suggest you go back to GO, don’t collect the $200 and start all over again.  For that is the true measure of man… a person who is aware that God exists and that no amount of riches and stuff will make him or her feel whole.  For those of us who have tried the way of addiction to escape living life on life’s terms, these are the facts.  We simply grow or we go… all the way back to the beginning.  Are you through running from yourself?  Are you through ignoring God?  In this New Year be all about becoming all you can be… regardless of the price you must pay!

Scriptures
Keep on asking and it will be given you;  keep on seeking and you will find;  keep on knocking [reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you.  For everyone who keeps on asking receives;  and he who keeps on seeking finds;  and to him who keeps on knocking, [the door] will be opened.
~Jesus, Matthew 7:7,8 (Amp)~

Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice?  Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.  Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.  By me kings reign, and princes decree justice.  By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth.  I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.  Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.  My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver.  I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment:  That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.  Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.  For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD.
~Proverbs 8:1,10,14-21,34,35~

Trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) in the Lord and do good; so shall you dwell in the land and feed surely on His faithfulness, and truly you shall be fed.  Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart.  Commit your way to the Lord [roll and repose each care of your load on Him]; trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) also in Him and He will bring it to pass.
~Psalm 37:3-5 (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
