Love it or hate it, transition happens to all of us - sometimes we are ready and waiting and at other times we struggle to embrace it.       In this episode, Jo and Steph look at the story of Martha and Mary in Luke 10:38-42 and discuss how Mary put aside the cultural expectations on her to embrace her calling. Martha embraced the oughts whereas Mary embraced what was needed. Jo shares her testimony of a two-year-long embrace of a calling into a new season she was resistant to.    

  Discussion questions:  

1) Can you think of a time when you laid down your/others oughts and shoulds and embraced what God was telling you that you needed to do? Share your story.  

2) What is God calling you into right now? What are the oughts and shoulds which threaten to get in the way? What is God saying you need to do?  

3) When can you create some space this week to spend some time praying and seeking God’s heart for you where you have doubts?
