Use Me Lord...




I've heard SO MANY people in the past 13 years say things like, "Use me Lord, I'm here", or 'God has called me to do this or that', and "ironically" these so-called, "calls" always seem to be something with a title, promotion, or spotlight!  These "chosen" will never volunteer, stack chairs, work with kids, or clean toilets...

 

Also "ironic" is that these calls are almost ALWAYS things that they are eager to do and EXCITED about....

 

Did you know that all but one or two Apostles died HORRIFIC deaths for Christ...  Starved, beaten, and imprisoned, yet I see American Christians turning their back on God for losing their jobs and many other spoiled brat reasoning... 

 

Now some of you will accuse me of boasting for my next comment but I ASSURE YOU I'm not.  Just simply trying to prove a point, and I hope to teach some peeps sumpin..

 

I never ever ever ever ever ever wanted to be a pastor...  NEVER... 

 

I fought God NOT to start the FHMCC..  4 separate times, I would think in my mind, ‘No God, I’m not doing this, I’m sorry’, and within MINUTES, something VERY WEIRD and STRANGE and unexplainable would happen that would shock the shit outta me!

 

This is the scariest thing I have ever done in my ENTIRE LIFE..  I have lost family, friends, acquaintances,  and have been the subject of hate, anger and ridicule for almost 13 years now… 

 

I hated this job for the first 8 years and wanted to die during 5 of those 8 years, and didn’t start to love it until about 5 years ago..

 

I lost a GREAT career the day after I launched the FHMCC and never looked back…

I then found a BETTER job than the one I had and God convicted me to NOT take it…

My best year ever in my construction career was $65,000.00 in 2008…  That included a $15,000.00 bonus that year, not including a free for personal use company vehicle WITH gas card, andfree medical insurance…  I could come and go as I pleased for the most part because the company knew I always got my work done and turned a profit…

 

I went from that to unemployment…  I got the max in 2011 which was like, $479.00 a week…  That ran out in 1 year…  I could have lied to extend it but that would have been a sin and also not putting my trust in God…  So I left unemployment scared BUT trusting God…

 

My first salary from the FHMCC was $250.00 GROSS per week…

 

I hadn’t made a house payment in a year and it was going down the repo path… 

 

God prepared my heart in that year to not fear or care about losing EVERYTHING because I knew I was supposed to do this for Him.. I was ready to live in the bus (pictured) and continue on this mission..




The mortgage company lowered my mortgage from $1,200.00 to $800.00 per month, cut my interest rate in half to 3.5% and said let’s just start over!  By then the Church was doing well enough to agree! 


God saved EVERYTHING and kept ALL of His promises on my mustard seed of faith… 

So BE CAREFUL when you pray, ‘Use me Lord, I’m here!’ because I GUARANTEE what your plans are for your life are NOT His plans! 


I wanted to be a Rock Star, Actor, Comedian, and Entrepreneur but God had different plans..


Now I LOVE my job for God, but it has come with a price, that I would now be willing to go back and pay all over again…



I am mentally, spiritually, physically, and emotionally battle-scarred…   

 

God says He will use the foolish to confound the wise! 

 

Hello everyone, it’s nice to meet you!  My name is Foolish…
