Life Experience

Don’t underestimate the power of the little things.

We are moving at a quick pace; in fact it is so quick that we often look for the big picture and overlook the small things.

When we think about it, it’s the little things that bring us the most lasting pleasure.That may explain why a child gets a big present but instead of playing with the present he plays with the box and pops the little plastic bubbles in the packaging.

We look for the big superstar experiences and overlook the fact that only a few of them stay married or even have the pleasure of doing the little things, such as sitting on a porch and watching the cars go by without a frenzy of photographers.

Howard Thurman once wrote that, “Little things make big differences.”

A little thank you is big when someone feels unappreciated.A little kindness can soften an angry response.A little time can bring more lasting please than a lot of gifts without the giver.Little things can make the difference.

That applies to our relationship with God, too.

There is a Bible verse in Numbers 16:9 that says Numbers 16:9 “Does it seem insignificant to you that the God of Israel has chosen you from among all the community of Israel to be near him so you can serve in the Lords Tabernacle and stand before the people to minister to them?”

No one ends up in recovery by mistake. God has a plan and a task for us all. It’s time to ask Him for yours and get on with the task of Living Life Recovery
