04-03: Expecting The Unexpected…

Expecting The Unexpected…

Quote
True stability results when presumed order and presumed disorder are balanced.  A truly stable system expects the unexpected, is prepared to be disrupted, waits to be transformed. ~Tom Robbins~

Meditation
Oftentimes in our lives, it seems as though the only thing constant, is change.  What worked for us yesterday, may no longer work for us today…that which we deem important today, may appear meaningless tomorrow.  Through this process of change and adaptation we are ever learning, growing and maturing into that which we might become.  Learning to accept the challenges of life, adapting to the changes around and within us and knowing that all these things work together for our good, is a big step toward true understanding.

Thought for the day
In this program we are either growing or we’re going!  Either we learn to adjust to the changes that life presents us with acceptance or we are destined to continue to fight everyone and everything around us…and in the process die!

Scriptures
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God.  For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.  But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. ~Romans 8:16,18,25,28~

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…
~2 Corinthians 3:17,18 (Amp)~

Blessed be the name of God forever and ever! For wisdom and might are His!  He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and sets up kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding!  He reveals the deep and secret things… ~Daniel 2:20-22 (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
