A few weeks ago, I asked each of the 96 men who attended that week’s Freedom Groups to name a daily routine that helped with their recovery. One man said what no one else was thinking.
Really? What does flossing one’s teeth have to do with recovery? This man explained, referring to a book written by Four-Star Admiral William H. McRaven, titled Make Your Bed. McRaven argues that doing something as small as making one’s bed each day is a huge sign of success for each day.
If you don’t like to make your bed, we now have an alternative.
Do something small each day. God shows up in the small stuff. Remember the boy who saved the day for thousands of hungry people? One of the apostles told Jesus, “There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish, but what are they for so many?” (John 6:9).
Making your bed. Flossing your teeth. Bringing a sack lunch to the right Person. It’s all a part of recovery.
Recovery Step: Do something positive each day, that tomorrow will thank you for.
