Do you feel stuck? Are you struggling to know and walk out your purpose? Maybe you can't even see the next steps in your life?

Today's guest, Amy Joob, shares her personal story of overcoming barriers to shift into new callings and fulfill her God-given purpose. Amy Joob is an award-winning author, speaker, and model turned advocate. 

We discuss how the seasons of uncertainty and failure can become opportunities to discover a new, God-given direction.

Amy shares her journey of life-changing moments when injury nudged her from competing as a tri-athlete into modeling, yet later faced recent shutdowns in her industries in modeling and trade shows. She then describes dental pain occurring during God's call to speaking and writing.

Joob quotes her father-in-law, who told her, "If you fail, it's on God because he told you to do it."

We discuss the need to depend upon God's strength to follow his calling. Amy shares how she needed to let go of perfectionism and self-reliance in order to fulfill her God-given purpose.

Amy and I explore the difference between the world's concept of success and God's definition of fulfilling our calling. We point to Biblical figures who exemplify serving their divine purpose, like David, Paul, and Moses.

Amy emphasizes seeking the next right step rather than expecting to continue on one path of singular purpose throughout life. She describes seasons, noting her own time of caring for her son when he faced a serious medical diagnosis.

Among the steps to move into fulfilling divine calling and purpose, Joob lists prayer, fellowship, holding onto hope in seasons of waiting or caregiving, obedient movement forward, letting go of perfectionism and shame, and forgiveness.

We discuss how God doesn't always reveal a long-term vision.

Amy recommends fasting and prayer for key strategies to help discern God's will. We also discuss putting God first and seeking his direction at the onset of each day.

We also discuss the blessing we can offer by inviting others to help us through delegating.
