It can take a lifetime to discern the best career option for our lives. We all want to feel fulfilled, experience joy, and know that we're able to use our gifts and skills to their full capacity. Humans also have a God-created desire for significance and achievement. When we feel a divine nudge to step forward and to take on new roles or responsibility, many of us wrestle with conflicting emotions. What if we take that step forward and irritate our boss? What if we leave our current employment to work fro another company and regret our decision? What if we're unable to pay our bills? And perhaps worse, what if we remain so paralyzed in fear that we never discover our true potential? In this episode, Career Coach Mary Guirovich shares her story of pursuing then landing her dream job and what God showed her in the process.
