Your Hope-Filled Perspective with Dr. Michelle Bengtson podcast

Oct 7, 2021

Episode Summary:

Amy Joob and I talk about how to get unstuck in life and move forward into the season God has for you. Amy Joob and her husband found themselves stuck in the recent pandemic and made the successful transition into a new path for their careers and ministry. She shares what she learned in the process.

Quotables from the episode:

  • One of the keys to getting unstuck and moving forward is to be humble and accept help.
  • Give yourself permission to grieve your losses.
  • Getting unstuck requires being willing to change and adapt, in faith.
  • When you’re really feeling stuck, consider a time of fasting and prayer.
  • Getting unstuck often requires being intentional and willing to do something completely different.
  • Getting unstuck requires us to surrender to God’s will and His way.
  • Loss of favor in an old place of position may be a sign it’s time to step into the new.
  • In the midst of pain, invite Jesus in to meet you in your pain.

Scripture References:

  • Psalm 73:23-24 NLT “Yet, I still belong to you; you are holding my right hand. You will keep on guiding me with your counsel; leading me to a glorious destiny.”
