Shift Your Focus with Guest Abby McDonald EP 89

Author, Abby McDonald joins me to talk about her new book, Shift: Changing Our Focus to See the Presence of God.

In this interview, Amy Elaine and Abby discuss how to navigate seasons where God seems invisible. Often, God seems far away or uninterested in the details of our lives. Fortunately, Abby’s book offers encouragement to inspire our discouraged hearts. Ultimately,  no matter the circumstances, we can see God in our lives in the here and now.

The Purposeful Life Challenge

Purpose Filled Challenge 30 Days in Psalm 139

Amazingly, the very act of abiding in Christ deepens our sense of identity and purpose. Somehow, what starts as heart’s desire grows into a passion. Passion refines our placement. And, our placement provides the realization of our purpose. Learning to be with God instead of trying to figure out what we can do forGod ultimately leads us to our most purpose-filled life.

Without a doubt, this journey begins with the equation of BE>DO = PURPOSE
