21-03: Something Extraordinary…

Something Extraordinary…

Quote
I can’t believe that God put us on this earth to be ordinary.
~Lou Holtz~

Meditation
Many will say to you that you must simply accept what is and be content with the way things are.  But you don’t have to.  A way has been made for you to lead an extraordinary life…one that provides for supernatural breakthrough in every area.  Only believe!

Thought for the day
As believers in God we need to remember that God does not call the qualified, He qualifies the called!  This is important to know because many of us have such low self esteem that it is hard to fathom that we could make great contributions in our lifetime.  We do not have to be extraordinary people to live extraordinary lives.  We can be very ordinary folks doing extra ordinary things as He wills us.  When we devote our lives to service to God and our brothers, we do exactly that.
So, next time you attend a 12 step meeting, don’t rush off after the meeting.  Stick around and start living an extraordinary life by reaching out to the frightened newcomer.  He won’t be hard to spot!

Scriptures
While he yet spoke, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogue’s house, saying to him, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the Master.  But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole…And He put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called, saying, Maid, arise.  And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway…
~Luke 8:49,50~

I assure you, most solemnly I tell you. if anyone steadfastly believes in Me, he will himself be able to do the things that I do;  and he will do even greater things than these, because I go to the Father.  And I will do [I Myself will grant] whatever you ask in My Name [as presenting all that I AM] , so that the Father may be glorified and extolled in (through) the Son.  [Yes] I will grant [I Myself will do for you] whatever you shall ask in My Name [as presenting all that I AM]. ~Jesus / John 14:12-14 (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
