Humble Yourself

A Popsicle Stick Inspired This Post

  • The words on the popsicle stick: “For God to use me the way HE wants.”


    For me to leave my safe and comfortable career in car sales took a huge leap of faith. After I was fired from my job in 2013, I thought I was beginning to listen to God. I may have been for a bit, but I really wasn’t truly listening. And then during Lent in 2015, I really began listening. I couldn’t help but listen. He forced me to listen. Through the rest of the year I struggled against what I thought God was calling me to do. And then when the decision was made to step away and go into this new adventure, I really thought I was in tune with his will for me. Yet, I found out I wasn’t. So, the words on the popsicle stick are vital to me. I walked into this new adventure because I thought He told me to. What he was really saying was, “Leave your job, and follow me.” I did the first part. The second part? Not so much. Now over 6 months into this new adventure, I’ve yet to set aside the time to properly seek what He truly wants me to do. I’ve still been fooling myself thinking it is Voice Over and Writing and Speaking. It may well be those things, in part, but the whole is not those things. He has something planned for me. I need to be still, search, listen, and obey. What I’ve been doing so far may very well be leading me to my true calling, but I need to remain in tune with Him for direction. And while my wife and I planned for this, it is hard. We are getting to the end of the funds. And maybe that’s what He wants. When the money isn’t there, we all tend to FINALLY put our full dependence on Him. So now you know. Even through all the listening and leaping, I still need to humble myself and be patient. I need to wait on the Lord.


    Thank you so much to my friend, Michele, for handing me a popsicle stick at the Launch Out Conference in Atlanta in April.

  1. I love you, my friend. And He has a faithful light that shines on each small step – both the ones we are supposed to take in the journey forward, and the ones we are supposed to take in the journey upward (this is written by the gal who just spoke about delighting in disruptions because they’ve been the catalysts to focus, fire, and freedom). xoxo

  2. Cannot wait to see the steps He will lead you down as you listen. It is all in His timing and will. He is slowly molding and shaping your heart through the fire that you may better serve as He designed.

  3. We wouldn’t need God if we could handle everything on our own. And sometimes we fool ourselves into thinking we don’t and we can. Stay strong in him, my friend. Psalm 121.
