2nd of 5 from 10 Secrets People in Recovery Know

May 16, 2020

Keep your head where your feet are.

It’s easy to worry about “what ifs” or how long the current situation will last. We’re healthier and more productive when we bring our minds back to what’s happening now. Instead of trying to predict what lies ahead, focus on “doing the next right thing,” as is often said in recovery meetings. 


“The Church of What’s Happening Now” was the title of a Flip Wilson comedy sketch.*

It would also be a great reminder of what preachers used to be taught: “Preach with the Bible in one hand and a newspaper in the other.”

That’s living in the present with a healthy awareness of all that’s beyond.

That’s also behind the answer God gave  when Moses asked for God’s name in Exodus 3:14, saying “I AM.”

Some have understood that as The Eternal Present…not a bad place to live and deal with what is.

So where are you right now?
