Ode To a Dreamer…

Quote
If one advances confidently in the direction of their dreams, And endeavors to lead a life which they have imagined, They will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. ~Henry David Thoreau~

Meditation
Pay heed to the dreams and visions you’ve been given.  They are not merely idle thoughts or wishful musings.  With faith, trust, hope, Action and perseverance, they can become your reality!  The key is to take action on the dream or vision, ever moving confidently toward its’ realization.

Thought for the day
Do you look for confirmation of the intuition you feel? Do you look for ways to solidify that which you know deep down inside is your God given truth… to change into a spiritual being committed to worshiping, not things of the earth but those things everlasting… peace, serenity, love of God and man?  Are you so wrapped up in self and the pursuits of your own will that you cannot envision anything else but the fulfillment of your own desires?  Do you have your head so far up your posterior that you need emergency surgery to extricate you from yourself?  The 11th step calls us to pray only for God’s will for us and the power to carry it out!  Sometimes we may know God’s will for us but just do not have the resolve, persistence and commitment (power) to carry it out.
Whatever your case, man up and don’t be a spiritual wimp!
Be true and hopeful… you are not alone in reaching for your destiny!  And when you reach your destiny you may find out it was all you had ever been dreaming of…  wrapped up in a different package.

Scriptures
For God [does reveal His will; He] speaks not only once, but more than once, even though men do not regard it…[One may hear God’s voice] in a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men while slumbering upon the bed, Then He opens the ears of men and seals their instruction…
~Job 33:14,15 (Amp.)~

And the Lord answered me and said, Write the vision and engrave it so plainly on tablets that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by.  For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hasten to the end [fulfillment];  it will not deceive or disappoint.  Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day.
~Habakkuk 2:2,3 (Amp.)~

And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:  And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:  And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath…
~Acts 2:17-19~

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
