Publisher's Description

There is a big difference between being set free and living free.
 
How do I know what to do with my life? How do I hear God’s voice? Maybe the answer is easier than we think. When God led the Israelites from Egypt to the Promised Land, He gave them a cloud to follow. He led them in an intimately personal, ever-present way one next step at a time. He led them without revealing the whole picture because he wanted them to follow by faith.
 
In Follow the Cloud, Pastor John Stickl uses this image to ask, "What if we stopped letting obligation drive us and instead let grace lead us? What if instead of focusing on our faithfulness toward God, we focus on God’s faithfulness toward us?" 
 
The cloud of God’s presence is moving in your life right now. Maybe God is inviting you to follow him to a new career or relationship. Maybe he is inviting you to extend forgiveness, share your story, or give up your addiction. Whatever your next step is, God is leading you to discover who you are, who he is, and what you were created to do. He is inviting you to a life of freedom. Inviting you home - one step at a time.

Stickl has a master’s degree in Christian leadership from Denver Seminary. He lives in Highland Village, Texas, with his wife, Colleen, and their two kids.

Editorial Reviews

"In a time where ’how to’ manuals abound, it is a refreshing manuscript you hold in your hands. John Stickl, as a young and successful megachurch pastor, chooses to engage us not with selling a model but rather inviting us to a timeless principle of hearing God’s voice and taking next steps with boldness. I’ve been privileged to see him and the Valley Creek Church family practice what they preach. Framed within the conviction of God’s acceptance, godly community, and God’s purpose for your life, you will be deeply inspired! Read it and live it!"
—Alan Platt, leader, Doxa Deo and City Changers Movement, global

"If you are a follower of Jesus, your journey with him is an adventure about taking next steps. John hits the mark in Follow the Cloud with encouraging God’s sons and daughters to continue to advance his kingdom by feeling secure in their identity, relationship, and purpose in his son, Jesus. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants the confidence that they can hear God’s voice so they have the faith to take their next step."
—Chad Hennings, three-time Super Bowl champion, author of Forces of Character and Rules of Engagement

"Pastor John is one of the brightest young leaders in the American church, and I am grateful he has written this book! His voice is much needed right now, and I believe your faith will be strengthened and increased as you turn each page."
—Brady Boyd, senior pastor, New Life Church, Colorado Springs, and author of Addicted to Busy

"I love John Stickl’s heart and mind for leadership. His approach is fresh, nuanced, and challenging. Regardless of the size of church you lead, John is a thought-leader for next generation ministry."
—Carey Nieuwhof, author and founding pastor, Connexus Church

"God desires to have an intimate relationship with us, and it’s his voice that draws us closer to the very heart of God. In Follow the Cloud, my friend John Stickl explains how hearing the still small voice of God and obeying his call will lead us into a deeper, more passionate relationship with him."
—Robert Morris, founding senior pastor, Gateway Church, Dallas/Fort Worth, and best-selling author of The Blessed Life, The God I Never Knew, Truly Free, and Frequency

"A playbook to life’s greatest lessons filled my mind while reading Follow the Cloud. If we want to experience all that God has to offer, then we must be still and trust that ’The Good Shepherd leads you through the valley you don’t want to go through to get you to green pastures you need.’ This book is a must-read for all mighty men and women of God. I thank God for the power, courage, faith, strength, love, and guidance of the life that is John Stickl. He literally breathes life into others through his words."
—Donald Driver, Super Bowl champion and New York Times best-selling author

"John Stickl reminds us that so much of being a leader, and so much of following Jesus, is taking the next step. One foot in front of the other. Pushing forward. Discovering and stepping into the new and unknown. And true influence is as much about following as leading. Follow the Cloud will encourage and inspire you on the journey!"
—Brad Lomenick, founder of BLINC, author of H3 Leadership and The Catalyst Leader, BradLomenick.com, @bradlomenick

"If you feel overdriven, overworked, and fatigued, yet it seems as though the impact of your life is underwhelming, you need to read this book. If you think the best you have to give still isn’t quite enough, you need to read this book. John Stickl’s writing in Follow the Cloud is clean and clear, kindhearted and thought-provoking. Follow the Cloud is valuable for everyone who places too much weight on what they do over who they are, which means most everybody needs to read this book."
—Rick Bezet, lead pastor, New Life Church of Arkansas, and author of Real Love in an Angry World

    The message in this book has brought me so much personal freedom. It has led me to be drawn by grace instead of being driven by performance and expectation. It has taught me what it means to live free as a beloved daughter of a good Father. And it has helped deliver me from the religious bondage of 'have to's' and invites me into the kingdom of 'get to's'. This book really is good news. You won't regret following the cloud, because wherever He leads you is always better than where you've been. Follow The Cloud and live free!

    I received an advance reader copy of this book and couldn't put it down. This is a must read for anybody who feels exhausted, purposeless or trapped in the cycle of performance.

    The author encourages the reader to live a life of freedom by following the cloud one next step at a time. He unpacks the journey of hearing God's voice and responding with faith. The message is engaging, relevant and full of hope.

    There are so many biblical truths woven throughout the book along with personal stories that make those truths come alive! He reminds us that we are drawn by grace, not driven by expectation and invites us to know the heart of a Good Father. There is deep revelation throughout the book that's shared in a way that is both relatable and applicable.

    I felt refreshed by this read and can't wait to share it with friends and colleagues. Follow the cloud and live free!

    This is the best book I have read in a long time! It opened my eyes to how God intended us to live FREE! A life where we know who we are, who God is, and what we were created to do sounds so easy, but most of us never attain it. This book is a manual with simple, but not simplistic, next steps that we can all take to live a life of freedom. No matter where you are in your journey, this book will enlighten you with its wisdom, make you laugh with its humor, and inspire you with its simple message follow the cloud, and live free.

    "Follow The Cloud" by John Stickl is a good title for anyone wanting insights and suggestions on hearing and obeying God's voice. Around 220 pages, the title addresses such topics as:

    1. God never leads us out of something without leading you into something better.

    2. Jesus wants to disrupt our routine and lead us to something better.

    3. The future with God is always better than the past without Him.

    4. Desperation can be God's grace to take you where you didn't have the faith to go.

    5. Focus on God's faithfulness towards us instead of our faithfulness toward Him.

    6. 5 ways we can position ourselves to hear what God is saying to us.

    7. 5 ways we can experience God's presence.

    The book is well-written, contains helpful insights, and transitions smoothly from chapter to chapter. Good read. I was given a copy by Blogging For Books in exchange for a fair review.
