19-02: Move on…

Move on…

Quote
Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we do fail.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

Meditation
Obstacles only become frightening when you have taken your eyes off of the goal.  As Wayne Gretzky once put it, “one hundred percent of the shots you don’t take, don’t go in.”  Stay focused on the prize, knowing that any failures you experience along the way, are merely temporary setbacks…learn from them…make the proper adjustments, and press on!

Thought for the day
No matter how circumstances may appear, or what failures may arise, there are really only two choices…you can either give up and quit, or simply decide to keep stepping up to the plate and taking your swings.  If you are resolute and determined, eventually you WILL meet with a measure of success.  When considering the alternative, is there really any other choice to be made?  Keeping your sights firmly fixed on the ultimate goal, and upon the One from Whom your strength truly comes, will provide the encouragement and perseverance needed to see you through the pitfalls!

How do I react to the errors I commit?  Do I cower, beat myself up and hide or do I examine the event, speak to other godly people, speak to God and try to figure out the lesson of life I have just received?

Scriptures
for though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again… ~Proverbs 24:16~

Arise [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you – rise to a new life]!  Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you!  For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you, and His glory shall be seen on you.  And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.  ~Isaiah 60:1-5 (Amp)~

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they are good for us–they help us learn to endure.  And endurance develops strength of character in us, and character strengthens our confident expectation of salvation.  And this expectation will not disappoint us.  For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.  ~Romans 5:3-5 (NLT)~

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
