Who should I marry? What should I do for a living? How does God want me to serve him to impact the world?
These are incredibly important questions. But as we pursue the answers, we often struggle with anxiety and uncertainty. What if I make a wrong decision? How do I know for sure what God wants for my life?
In 1997, I thought he was going to marry a pastor’s daughter and become a Protestant preacher. Today, I'm married to a Polish doctor, am passionately Catholic, and serve as the co-host of a top-rated business and success podcast.
Listen as I share the story of my life – and love life – and what I learned about how to confidently and passionately pursuing the will of God in your life…even when you have absolutely no idea what it is.
This talk was delivered on February 7, 2019 at Source and Summit, a ministry of St. Isidore's Catholic Student Center on the campus of Kansas State University (Manhattan, KS).
You ever heard of the song “Binary Sunset?” It’s the song that plays in the background during the scene in the original Star Wars movie when Luke Skywalker really, really wants to go to the Academy and live a life of adventure…but realizes that he’s got to stay home and help his uncle work the farm.
It’s a dramatic song. A melancholy song. A song that is meant to convey two main emotions: disappointment and depression. And as the song plays, the scene unfolds with Luke looking out over the horizon watching not one, but two suns going down (Binary Sunset!) and the look on his face says it all:
“My hopes are dashed. My dreams are in the toilet. I. Am. Screwed."
