You'll either be out of God's will.

You'll be in God's permissible will.

Or

You'll be in God's perfect will.


She said the first one is not good. She said the second one is really not too good, but it's better than the first one, she said. But the third one is where you need to strive to be.

Show Notes: Health, Relationships, God and Business with Mike Huey

Tamra Andress

Hey, hey, hey, you guys, we are live and in action. I was so excited to be here with the one and only Michael Huey, Mike Huey. Has anyone every called you Magic Mike.


Tamra Andress

My coach is Mike Zeller and they call him Magic Mike. It always cracks me up, but from a marketing mindset, mastering that, your mastery is in so much more, even still in health, relationships, business and our relationship being funded and rooted in God himself, which is such a magical thing to connect with somebody through the Great Interweb and know that they are just rooted in who they are because of whose they are. And I am grateful to know you and to continue to get to know you and excited to share you with the Fit in Faith community today.


Tamra Andress

It's so it's such an honor to be here just even just the time we got to spend before we jumped on that, we were like, oh, maybe we should be recording this. And so we pray like this go right. So that's why we're here. We're here to inspire and encourage and change people's lives. So thanks for having me. Appreciate it.


Tamra Andress

Absolutely. It's honestly a gift. And I'm excited because I think my podcast with you for The Heat, and he I was like, he influenced me tomorrow. Oh, yeah. You guys got to go listen to it. But it's not about me. It's about you and it's about us and it's about him. And so I want to just dove in. And I am one of those people that just likes to ask questions and probe. And because of our getting to know each other in this process over the last couple of months, it's been really a gift and a blessing.


Tamra Andress

But there are so many parts to who you are and to your story and to your placement right now. That really intrigued me. One specifically is your faith. And two is this journey and evolution of entrepreneurship, which I know are totally different, but also one in the same. So I want to just go back to like, where did this idea deposit get you to say this is the big or big?


Michael Huey

Yeah, well, so even after college, I mean, I was the person in high school and college. I live in an alcoholic father's home. I was told I'd never go to college, never graduated from high school. All those things, I mean, for more than just one, not only from just people, but from a teacher. And I laugh about that because we were just like my wife. And I just talking about that story about how the first day at the school, at a new school that I went to the lake, the girl that walked up to me Tamra at the table, you know, you're the new guy in town, right?


Michael Huey

And everybody knows you're coming because you're this great athlete. I was great athlete. And this girl walks up to me and she sits down beside me and she says, Are you Michael Huie? And I said, Yeah. And she said her name and and she said the name was Angie. And just in case you watch as well, I won't go into too much detail. But I, I said and when she said her last name, I was like, is your dad Ronald?


Michael Huey

And she said, yes. And he was he was the principal years prior to that, but told me I'd never graduate from high school. And really God like that person, like you said, that person down beside me. And then later on when we graduated, her and I were voted most athletic in our high school. And after graduation, when I did graduate from high school, he walked by me and said, congratulations. And I don't even know if he realized years before that what he had really said.


Michael Huey

I just think in the moment I was struggling with some health issues, some seizures and some stuff and hyperactivity. And, you know, and I think he just his emotions got the best of him. I think that happened some time. But I went on to college as an athlete in college, graduated from from Ohio State, from the Ohio State University, you got to say. Right. But and then I I worked in the fitness industry for a while.


Michael Huey

Then I got an opportunity to move to Florida. And I knew that I was called to entrepreneurship. But at the time I was still working for somebody else and didn't really like it. I was working so much and and I was super successful. Like I was in the top one percent of the fitness industry for many years. You know, when other people were making twenty five and thirty five thousand dollars a year, I was making seventy five and one hundred, which in the eighties, late eighties and nineties was a lot of money.


Michael Huey

But I was one of those people that didn't have concept for money. Right. Like I didn't I wasn't saving money. I went through spouts of where I was, where the Lord was like just waving at me, laughing, saying, OK son, I'm waiting. Right. Like Joseph. Right. You know, and and finally then I figured it out. I got it together. I spent. Sometimes I think I'd say one of the things I learned from that the most was the power of community, how we met and the power of the of the church and the kingdom and how I went to Florida, didn't find a church, didn't stay connected.


Michael Huey

I think it's important the Bible even says, you know, we were talking about the show The Chosen and they were talking about the sheep wandering away like Jesus goes through this explanation of what that means and how they get devoured. Right. And so for me, I got burnt out after 20 some years plus years of doing what I was doing. And and I was like, there's got to be a better way. Right. And I kept hearing people say, well, shouldn't you be speaking on more stages and shouldn't you talk for all these companies and you had all this success?


Michael Huey

You should be having more success, shouldn't you? I was like, yes, I should be right. And so I was like I started fasting and praying and God showed me all these doors. He opened up a door for me to have residual income and to make a massive impact in my life. And literally through that one decision of praying and fasting, it's allowed my family to get off of about 90 percent of their medications. It's allowed me to create at a time which I was sharing with Tamra before when I brought a person into my business that my coaching business that almost bankrupted us.


Michael Huey

And I remember this like this, and I'll finish with this, that the call was like this with my wife. One day we were talking about our spouses before we got on and just how they're very similar in their ways of doing things. And Tamra and I are very similar. Right. That's why when we get to spend time together, we'll be able to see how that that that goes on. And it's it's amazing because God connects us with people like that.


Michael Huey

Right. And I was as before going my friend Nikou and her husband, they're kind of like that to Niko's kind of like Tamra and I and Kiles, kind of like our our spouses. Right. And I remember the call. My wife said, honey, you should probably come home. And I was I was actually at the mastermind I was just talking to Tamra about. And she said, you should come home after it's over and not go on to the next thing you're going to do because we're almost bankrupt was like, what?


Michael Huey

And, you know, reality hit me. I was not fully in. And this goes to what Tamra said, that she just got back from an event and what she learned to be present in the moment. And every area of your life be fully present. Don't let the enemy get a crack in the door where he can deceive you and deceptive and be deceptive to you. And I was like, what happened? And she's like, well, you know, everything's going sideways.


Michael Huey

I'll talk to you about it when we get home. And then I realized after losing a half a million dollars, I was telling Tamra I wish I had that money back now. But what I learned from it was, is that God owns a thousand cattle and a thousand. He has the availability to teach me through it and he taught me through it. And now I'm learning. And now I'm not making those same mistakes. Now I'm not letting the devil have those cracks in there.


Michael Huey

And that's what led me to understand that I want to be able to give I'm a giver. There was there was somebody talking this morning about giving on on clubhouse and lies up this enjoy. And God anointed me to give my pastor actually said this to me a couple of months ago. I said, you have the heart of Jesus when it comes to giving. And I thought the more I can build an empire in my entrepreneurship journey, the more impact I can make in the kingdom from a financial standpoint.


Michael Huey

But I can also lead by example and show other believers like Tamra and I were talking about earlier that that's possible, that you can divorce the outcome and marry the process and learn that process of growing and evolving and staying present in a moment. But I think now. I'll just say this, I believe that the latter days of my life are going to be greater than the former days of my life. Why? Because now I'm rooted and grounded in God's perfect will no longer in God's permissable.


Michael Huey

And I think the problem is, is a lot of people spend. My grandmother used to say this. You say you'll spend three areas in your life. You either be out of God's will, you'll be in God's permissable will, or you'll be in God's perfect will. She said the first one is not good. She said the second one is really not too good, but it's better than the first one, she said. But the third one.


Michael Huey

Is where you need to strive to be, and I think for me, I get up every day now and say I'm called to be an entrepreneur, I'm called to influence people. I'm called to build relationships with people. I'm called to speak from stages. And now I walk in that confidence. I think that that's the switch for me that made me understand my calling it entrepreneurship, full account of everybody notes. And if you aren't so good, so much in there and so many angles that we can take this conversation.


Michael Huey

The thing that really spoke to me was this idea of that presence, because I just had walk through this experience and recognizing that you had to be present in that emotion of hurt when that happened with your partner, you had to be present in the emotion of being outside outsider as well, and being in that permissable will and be willing and obedient to surrender and also accept conviction. And then to know that there was this part of you that was ingrained since birth of you, that that's not necessarily a fully cultivated concept, especially not by society.


Michael Huey

Right now we know everything is greed and give and take. Right. And so we have that and that being the way that you show up in the world, that gives a servant leader mentality, everything else through that perfect will and abundantly comes along organically, literally without effort. And I think that's the big thing. Like I went to mastermind. You've gone to mastermind's. We're learning at the club clubhouse, which feels sometimes like the mastermind. But there's all this information coming and we're taking notes and we talk about the importance of needing very desperately to be sure that we are activating.


Michael Huey

Be sure that the things that we were taking are not just sitting there solely as an idea that's going into a note section or a notebook, and that's the end of it. And so you've taken these ideas that you've cultivated and you utilize them as a tool belt to serve and to show up today. And the main word that I want people to grasp hold of is in confidence. Right. Confidence is also something that I feel is very hard to come by because it's also not taught, but it can be learned.


Michael Huey

So talk to us about that evolution of confidence and how through the type of work that you do with your clients are imparting confidence in every choice that they made, whether it's from the kitchen to wherever they're going, right? Yeah.


Michael Huey

Yeah. And I think it's super important from a confidence standpoint. It's even like when you look at. I take a client, for instance, that I had that was seventy one years old, that said he was dying. The doctor the doctor said you're dying. And now the doctor says he'll live to be one hundred. Now he's come to know the Lord. His wife was raised Jewish. She's come to know the Lord. And and he was the most unconfident person in the world.


Michael Huey

But it was because that had been instilled in him from from a young child like, you know, this is what you're going to do. This is and I even see that, like in in my wife, she her family is now all radically saved. And before it wasn't like that. Right. And I think confidence comes when you put yourself around the right people that speak confidence in you. And I was I was that a John Maxwell leadership conference and a very small group of people.


Michael Huey

And I asked John, why is intentionality so important? And he said, why is it important to you? And so he kind of put it back on me, right, and if you know much about John always says, you know, you never correct somebody without encouraging them. Right. And I think confidence and it's no coincidence we talked about this at Bible study last night about confidence and about encouragement. I think when you're constantly being encouraged, it's like it's like your love language, right?


Michael Huey

When you're fulfilling another person's love language, their confidence builds when you're walking and God's perfect will, confidence builds. But there's also confidence that can be gained when you're in the valley. Right. Like my one of my wife and I's mentor is Dr. Carol Lane. She told me about a book a while back that was about the values in the Bible. And she said, if you live long enough past 50, you'll go through all these valleys and the Bible.


Michael Huey

And someone asked her a question like, when did you learn the most? When did you get confidence the most? And she said in the valley, she said, the valley. And the confidence pushed me forward. And she gave this this thing that I'll never forget. She says, Did you ever notice that on the on each side of the valley, there's two mountain tops come on through hills. Right. You know, and she said that's what's most important.


Michael Huey

If you look at where you are in the growth and the confidence that comes from who you surround yourself and and who pushes you forward to become your best self. And you were talking about we were talking about Glen Lundeen, breakfast of champions. He did a talk about that, about doing this self-examination of what builds up your confidence. Who are you surrounding yourself with? What are you learning? Is that push is that it's just like you said, like we have to protect ourself.


Michael Huey

I think our confidence comes when we protect the stuff that we bring into our our life and how that stuff goes out, what we say, how we respond to people. I've really I've really grown leaps and bounds in my confidence because I've taken a step back. To stop and say, wow. Is that going to edify this person and encourage this person? Am I going to judge this person? And I'm like, no, I have to be president, I have to be present like Tamra talking about to be confident for others, but to be encouraging to others to because other people are looking.


Michael Huey

Everybody's watching. People are watching what you're doing. And they want to know what can they learn from you or what. What are you going to say that makes them feel confident maybe or feel encouraged? And I think that that's the most important thing is, is that this was this is what I would say last about that is I understood this. I had a guy on my podcast a couple of months back named Daniel Clark, who was a pastor's son.


Michael Huey

Twenty six years old, was living in his car. And I and he told his story. And at the end of it, I said, if you had to sum it up in one sentence, what would you say allowed you to become this person? He said, well, he said the difference between wisdom and knowledge is action. I can learn and grow and do all this stuff, but if I don't take action on being more confident and showing up better, showing up in the moment, showing up for my kids, like Tamra talked about a situation where she had a decision to make.


Michael Huey

And and I could just say this. I would say that as your son saw you making a choice, like you said, we all have a choice. It builded his confidence and protection. And who is mom is and how important he you, your kids are to you in that moment. And I believe that for me, being in a different atmosphere, growing up, being an alcoholic father. So I didn't have that. So I had to gain my own confidence outside my home.


Michael Huey

So if you're listening today and you're a parent, remember, your kids are watching your every move. They're watching how you talk to your spouse. They're watching how you respond to things at work and how you respond to things. And I think that's super important when it comes to confidence.


Tamra Andress

Yeah, that's super powerful. And interestingly enough, as you're speaking into me from that moment with my son, I'm thinking about my dad and my father and experience now and then. Even as a grown child, I still love him for that air of confidence and his words of affirmation don't know in the same way that my husband's words of affirmation meet me because my husbands were after me and are met with proof and met with truth. And so on the contrary, feeling like I know he loves me, but the choice that's being made is not me.


Tamra Andress

And so if I chose to do that every single day for my son, I love you. I'm here for you and present with you. Like, let's do this together. I'm in this for you. And at the same time, I'm choosing every other thing that's likely on one of these devices that's not fully present with him. My words become less and his confidence than is taken to a lower level as well. And so it's not only critical for me to proclaim confidence, but that importation of confidence based on my being because it's caught and taught it.


Tamra Andress

People say it's got not taught or taught, not caught, but it's actually both. And so recognizing that this is it's not only an opportunity, it's an obligation, especially as a parent, but also as a coach or as a house or any other things, because words of affirmation not backed up by the other representation. Confidence then just gets muddied and it's it's nothing to stand firm on. So I appreciate that perspective. And I'm thinking through my own valley moments and how confidence was cultivated in those places and thinking of the fact that I was I mean, I was armoring up in the Valley because I had nothing else to do.


Tamra Andress

I was either dying and I was dying. I was dying to self, but or I was literally going to take my life or I had to gain weapons so that I could warfare against the very thing that was keeping me and trapped in bed and in my own mind, in my own head. And so I never looked at it from the perspective that I gained confidence there. I always thought about it more of a perspective of clarity, but also empathy.


Tamra Andress

But honestly, without clarity and empathy, I wouldn't have confidence, confidence that I could now go and serve someone extra well because I know what it feels like to be in that valley, which is exactly what you do.


Michael Huey

Yeah. And I think when you what you said there was really cool, because when you if you don't go through those areas in your life. How do you help other people that are there in those areas like you, when I was when Lisa and my wife and I were apart. My friend of mine, pastor friend of mine, called me and said he said, you know, you're not lying to anybody. Right? I was like, I'm lying to everybody we're talking about.


Michael Huey

Right. Like, if you've never experienced spiritual warfare, which every believer does, they just don't recognize it to grow from it and learn from it. And many succumb to it. It's like like you see many pastors fade away from the pulpit and, you know, marriages and then all this stuff because they don't take a revelation of what the Bible showed them when it comes to spiritual warfare. And and he said, no, this is what he said.


Michael Huey

He said, you're one of the most encouraging people, confident people I know. He said, you're just believing the lies that the enemy is telling us the truth. And I was like, as I'm like, yeah, every now and then, I literally went out in the other room and the guy I was staying with was a missionary said. Again, he said, your confidence is going to fade away. He said, because you have a noose around your neck and you need to cut that noose.


Michael Huey

Before your confidence is completely pulled away, I was like taking it right, like I get it now because when you're in spiritual warfare, the devil just pulls you out, right? And you can let that confidence be pulled down. But I just made a choice. I'm not going to let it be pulled down. I made a choice to realize that I need to walk in who God's calling me to be, not who man's coming to you. Not my feelings, my emotions or anything surround me.


Michael Huey

And it's like, go, go and walk in it and be in it and like you said, be in the present because it's super important.


Tamra Andress

Well, what's interesting about that to this conversation of confidence and ego. Right. And understanding that confidence is not ego. Ego is not confidence. Just because somebody is confident does not mean that they are not egotistical. And God Fit in Faith is where we get to stand. And it's a gift to be able to do that. But you go in the way of the most confident person. And when that happens, that's when it's going backwards. What happens, that's when that one leaves the ninety nine because they stray from the confidence maker who is God himself, the creator.


Tamra Andress

So interesting. I have a question as you're walking through just the development of how you serve people and knowing that we parallel in the health and wellness space and it is a passion of mine and personal branding as a part of my resume back in the day. Are you helping to impart what you know? Because it's not just like a workout, hey, lift weights. You actually teach people something way bigger about their physiology, their genetic makeup. And I find it just so amazing.


Tamra Andress

So I'd love to hear more about it.


Michael Huey

Yeah, I think that it's when you ask that because it's changed over the last 10 years, I think this confidence thing and this challenge things I want to when I read Brendan Bouchard's book and I realized that you needed to be if you wanted to be smarter and better, John, Maxo says if you're the smartest person in the room, get out of that room. Right. And if you can see, I mean, behind me, I got a lot of John's books behind me and I've read them all.


Michael Huey

I actually grew up in his church when he was twenty three years old. I was like, ah, he was twenty six year old. I was like four or five and I was going to the church that he was at and now which is funny. And at that time I was still my dad was of college, so I wasn't really recognizing a lot of stuff and I suppressed a lot of stuff. And I found out later on in life that John was the pastor of the church.


Michael Huey

I was going to it's just funny because I kept thinking, I know John somewhere and then God brought this stuff back to me. But the the confidence for me is is learning to teach people about their own DNA, their own genetics, Tamra. So if you guys haven't noticed, Tamra mom is now working with her and her mom looks like her with his funny, like she's like I got the best genes in the world. And I'm like, yes, you do.


Michael Huey

And I know it's like her age and her mom's my. It's the same thing with me too. Like I feel like I did in my thirties again because of this. And I made a change 10 years ago. So I had 30 plus certifications recently. Last year I got nominated for a PhD in holistic nutrition and I was like, there's just got to be something different. People are still struggling. People are still even the healthiest people like you can see some of the healthiest people I know, people that we know, even on on different platforms that we follow have got covid.


Michael Huey

They've got and have been super, super sick. Some of them have got it multiple times. Right. And I was like, there's just got to be a better way. Heck, my family got it. I didn't get it. And I was around them all the time. So my testimony for me, as is that I started doing DNA testing and epigenetics testing and I started being able to take people who were struggling on medications and changing that around.


Michael Huey

Even my father, who was on 19 medications at one time, and now he was supposed to die at sixty nine and last week was eighty first birthday. Right. And, you know, and as people get older, they really don't really care a lot like it when they get to sixty five people like I'm retired. Right. And last time I checked, I don't see anywhere in the Bible where it tells me about retirement. Right. I'm going to keep on going and I'm going to up like one of my spiritual fathers and mothers.


Michael Huey

Lisa drove and I drove back over Clearwater a couple because they retired from the church, but they did retire from their ministry. They started a bigger ministry and started. The wife is working in kids ministry and doing that stuff because that's their calling. Your calling never stops. For me. My challenge is to be a step ahead of people like if I can't figure something out. It's funny. I was talking to you about Nikou earlier. She sent me a picture of her and one of my new best friends, Dr.


Michael Huey

Phil Carson. We're on a call together and they were sending me pictures while they were together. Why? Because the Bible says two are better than one, right? When one falls down, you have the other people. If you're not open to growing and learning from other people, then you're dying on the inside. You're literally not open to things that could better your health. Right. And I can't judge that person. I because this is the biggest piece of this Tamra is that I used to get really attached to the responses of people like I know I can help them.


Michael Huey

But as I said to you before, some of the smartest minds in the kingdom are dying on the inside, and they've they've missed that peace. And God gave me this. I'll finish with this. God gave me this revelation. I have a stand that I use sometimes when I'm doing conferences, if I'm doing virtual conferences and I like to stand up and and instead of a normal stand, it's got three legs. Right. And the Holy Spirit showed me that a lot of people even knowing that we have a spirit, soul and body, they get the.


Michael Huey

Spirit in the soul part, right, but they don't have the body. Some people, their genetic testing will come back and it says there plus 20 their age, or if they're 60, that means they're 80. Right. And for me, that switch for me, years ago, I was about the same as my cellular age. And I was I did a test in twenty nineteen with Naveen Jane, which is that he brought in like Dave Astbury and Ben Greenfield and all of these amazing people.


Michael Huey

And I was in the top five in every category out of one hundred of the top healthiest people. And I thought, man, I want to be number one. Right. Like what can I do to be number one? Top five is always great because there's ninety five other people that are wanting to get where you're at. Right. But I'm like, what can I learn and who can I learn from? So I just started surrounding myself. I go in the clubhouse sometimes and I block it out of my schedule.


Michael Huey

I just listen to people and I listen to people talking about epigenetics and gene expression and how there's a way now to tap into systems inside your body rather than supplementing your body. And I've known it for ten years. And now if you know if you know technology, I mean, look at look at look at Apple. It took them thirty nine years to become a trillion dollar company, almost went bankrupt numerous times. Technology and our field is changing, just like you said, if change is inevitable.


Michael Huey

Right. It's it's it's caught and taught. Right. And so if you're not learning and growing and evolving, you're dying. And I think it's why now I believe this and the next three to five years, I'll make I'll make a more significant impact than I have in probably the last 10 to 15 years, because my mindset is different. My thought process is different. And and and my walk with God is different. I'm I'm if you and I'll share this 30 seconds.


Michael Huey

I had a dream where God came into my dream back before it started. And and I and I asked him why we were there and I could go into long but I'll just keep it short is that I had there was a row of doors in front of me and they were perfect. They were they were gleaming and the light was shining. It was black around them and the doors were open. And behind me was was a same row doors as mile long.


Michael Huey

But they were all broken. Some of them were OK, some of them were broken, some of them were on their side, and there was a door on the right. And Jesus walked into my dream and he grabbed the hold of my arm and he said I said, Lord, why are we here? And he said, This is your life. He said, this is your former life. This is your present life. He said, I want you to pump the brakes on your permissable will, which was this life.


Michael Huey

And he came around behind me and he put his hands around her like blinders and he did this and other dreams. So I said and he said and then this is the revelation that I got. As he put his hands beside me like that, he said, Close your eyes. And I close my eyes and you said, can you see it? Can you see it? And then he said it three times, like he does many times, right?


Michael Huey

Said, can you see it? And then the door on the left closed. And in an instant, he was gone. And what he what he was showing me was, is that he wants me to do life with him in his perfect world rather than doing it partially with him in my permissable will. And that's why I believe that he put his hands around my eyes, because he wants me to have ears, to hear eyes to see it, a heart that's receptive to his perfect will.


Michael Huey

And that's me learning and growing and evolving and making a bigger impact. So, yeah, that's that's so it's so good. And it's a while because I've had experiences with Jesus who his hands are connected to my faith as well, and not in the same way, but like holding my feelings and lifting my pen to his face. And I feel like that's the that's the pivotal shift of permissable to perfect and obviously us not calling ourselves for this mindless waving a flag over here of surrender every day.


Michael Huey

But there is this deep knowing within me that when I get to show up for the day, which is from the moment I wake up to the moment I go to sleep, I get to stand in his presence, in knowing with his hands in my face, if I choose to stay locked on his face versus the many other doors that will come into my line of sight. And knowing that everything nowadays is dressed really well, everything looks like the right thing.


Michael Huey

Or the good opportunity or the big opportunity or the big break. And yet if we're not bringing it into alignment with who he's called you to be and your individual calling, what might look good or right isn't always good or right for you. And that was really what our conversation was before we got on here, about like hours deposited into certain social media around or deposited with certain clients or not clients or where are you showing up is the question. And if you're looking for the confidence to go up to somewhere, well, it's partially an action that that confidence is established.


Michael Huey

When you're in a valley, you don't get to just sit there. Arms crossed for me, for my I'm going to sit right here and look around. There is a activation of let me stand up, brush myself up, bring all the people that interested is so, so critical. And let's head up to that mountaintop together. Right. And we've all been in that valley. Sometimes we start in the valley. Sometimes we have to go back to the valley.


Michael Huey

This is a this is a cycle of life. But I feel like once you're in that place actually grabs hold of your face, the valley never looks the same. Doesn't mean it's a heart, but it never looks the same because that sense of identity and that sense of confidence is an instant positive. So my question to people listening today and can be a further question to you even is what next? What now if the big or big, is this right here before you and you have an opportunity to impart to somebody?


Michael Huey

What is it that you would impart? And is it through the lens of health or is it through the lens of art?


Michael Huey

Yeah, I think you taught me something a couple of weeks ago, which was really fun. And we hear this cliche thing and she knows where I'm going because you're smiling is we always hear that you've got to be around more like minded people. Right? We know that that doesn't always work just because a person is like minded with you. Some like minded relationships lead to codependency. If you ask me one thing I learned from what I went through in 19, 19, 18 and 19 was to be aware of codependent relationships where I have that friends that I really wanted.


Michael Huey

I loved him, his passion for God. But his his external shell was broken and I kept trying to fix that. And, you know, I send the book Wild Heart to almost all my clients that I work with. And we send Captivating, which is the women's version to women that we work with. And and my wife went to the captivating retreat and I went to the web, the wild apartments retreat. And if you're not a fan of John Eldridge, you should be because he's just this incredible man of God and he taught most of the things and a lot of the things are based on movies and stuff.


Michael Huey

That's how they teach. And if you can see you can see lightness and darkness in movies and everywhere you go. Listen, I pointed out all the time have always acted in movies. It's just I think it's why my wife and I are movie buffs, because we don't see rated R movies. We only see movies that we look at on like Focus on the Family and stuff. And I think for me, what drives me is, is this Tamra Scott Simon talks about it, but he doesn't go into too much detail about it.


Michael Huey

There's a talk that I just happen to go to Ted for free a couple of years ago because I was actually going to another mastermind and it happened to be the same weekend in Vegas. And I was like, oh, this is simple. I'll just go and was free. And my friend Kolhatkar, who's a former white missionary, got this grant, gave him this big suite. And so we were upstairs in the suite the whole time. And Ed Millette did a talk.


Michael Huey

And this is what drives me. This is what drives me every day. And when Scott talks about it, I wish he would go in a little bit more detail about it. But here's what Ed says. He says, We're believers. I'm a Christian. He says, I'm not imposing my belief system on you. He said, but I have a relationship with God and there's a difference. And he said, here's what I believe. I believe that God is creating this, Michael, this Tamra, this whoever is listening today.


Michael Huey

And he's got all these gifts and all these talents and everything that's in there. Right. All their brokenness. But all this healing is going on. Right. And you said one day I have to stand before God. You can't stand before God for me. I can't stand before God for you. But when I stand before God, I want to see that person that God created and I want him to be my twin, not a stranger. Think about it for a minute.


Michael Huey

It's the same thing that the guy said to me, can you see it? Can you see it? And if you're thinking about that today, hopefully if you're driving, do that sometimes, close your eyes and ask yourself, can you see it? Can you see that person that God called you to be? Can you? And this is how Ed finished it. He said, I want to be able to put my arm around him. That person that Tamra that God created, that Michael, that God's great is listening that person.


Michael Huey

And I want to hear him say in this year, well done, good and faithful servant. Enter in the paradise, because I think when, you know, you have a calling on your life. You constantly should be. I said this about my about most people who. Don't know where they're going are they don't know what that feels like to have that intimacy with God and to have that push and to have the Holy Spirit pulling you and pushing you, sometimes they quit or give up or they get discouraged or they just stay in the valley.


Michael Huey

Right. They just stay in the valley, like you said, or they slide back down the hill because they're constantly getting up and staying in that. But I think when you have that passion to be better, to grow, to want to be that person that God called you to be, you get up every day. And, you know, I wake up every day, my friend Ideal client, who is now the pastor of Todd White Church in Fort Worth Lifestyle, Christianity, they just built this massive church in.


Michael Huey

My friend is is the associate pastor with Todd White. And he said, this is how I start my day. I get up in the morning and I say, good morning, Jesus, I love you. And he said, When I go to bed, I say, goodnight, Jesus, I love you because his focus is on what's important. And I think for me, once I focus on becoming that person that God's calling me to be, I set those boundaries and and and then my potential is unlimited, my potential of confidence and all the things that God called me to be in that person become manifested.


Michael Huey

And I drive every single day to be that person that there's a lot of things with this. There's a little sign right here in my office, Tamra, that says Wake, Pray and Slay. And as I think about what we've talked about, that's. That's drives me every single day because I come up here and I pray, I listen to a little bit of Glenn in the morning and I do my devotions and I look at I stop and I look at that side because that's my calling.


Michael Huey

My calling is that I've got to pray and then I've got to go and allow myself to stay focused on the things of God and not let the enemy distract me. And so I think that that's what's most important and that's what drives me. That's what's next for me, being in God's perfect will and becoming all that God's called me to be. And I think if you're listening today, that should be the same, because remember, God is no respecter people.


Michael Huey

What he's done for Tamra, what he's done for me, he can do for you. And if you're not there, you can figure it out.


Tamra Andress

So you're so right and it's been such a treasure to just see our relationship evolve over the last couple of months. And you need to know your wife a bit. And we've had some comical conversations recently about we'll talk about that offline, knowing that there are people who are waking and praying and sleeping in different parts of the country in different parts of the world, allows you to feel even more empowered in the same way. Right. And to know that there is this army rising up in the midst of a valley, a valley of Koven, a valley of political unrest, a valley of war, a valley of whatever trauma situation you could point.


Tamra Andress

We could name hundreds of thousands of them probably. And yet there is an army rising up and you have an opportunity alongside Michael and I to be with us. And so we are definitely people who want to pray with you in that process, to be with you in that process, to support you in the process. And that's the thing about this is even though this entrepreneur's podcast, you didn't hear about how you can come into relationship with us as a Myron, you came and you heard about how you can come into relationship with us as a brother or sister, and that's all that matters.


Tamra Andress

So we love you. So you to go listen to the podcast and everything is in the comments and all that jazz. But for such a time as this friend, I'm grateful to you for listening.


Michael Huey

Thank you for this time together today. I really likewise.
