The Blog I Almost Didn’t Post

The Blog I Almost Didn’t Post


A few weeks ago I wrote a blog about an experience I had at Chipotle. The blog was a little bit off topic from what I normally talk about, so I almost didn’t post it. I decided Friday would be the best day to post it because I couldn’t think of anything else to post and nobody reads blogs on Friday.

Boy, was I wrong.

The blog got hundreds of shares and thousands of people read it within the first few hours. It became my most read blog of all time by the following day, bypassing another blog that got thousands of views earlier this year.

I was completely baffled. That was by no means my best writing. I really wasn’t even sure I had made a decent point. But something about the blog struck a chord with people.

I know this goes against what all the experts say, but I’m becoming increasingly convinced that you should just try lots of stuff. Even stuff that you don’t feel like you are very good at or are insecure about. You just never know what God is going to bless. You never know what will succeed.

Ya, I get that you need to play to your strengths and all. You need to be consistent and faithful with what you do. You can’t just go trying tons of things and never sticking to them. But I also know that God likes to use the foolish things to confound the wise (1 Cor. 1:27). That’s why from time to time he’ll take things you are most insecure about and use them to do something you never could have imagined.

So just be brave and put yourself out there. Then when something amazing happens you’ll know it was all God that made it happen. God gets the glory that way. And we get the joy.

Send your grain across the seas, and in time, profits will flow back to you. Divide your investments among many places, for you do not know what risks might lie ahead. Ecc. 11:1-2
