    Jamie Winship spent nearly 30 years living and working in conflict zones, and during that time he has learned an important truth: all human conflict originates from fear, and fear originates from a false view of God, ourselves, and others. Until we exchange what's false for what's real, we will never experience being fully alive, fully human, and fully free. This exchange starts with one critical step: speaking truthfully to God. He explains how in this episode of Real Faith Stories.

    At age 24, Rob was sitting alone with God and he heard Him say to his heart, “I'm calling you to plant a church. You're going to teach in seminary. You're going to write books. You're going to speak internationally. Everything you do is for revival.” Rob replied, “I will do anything you ask me to do. But I'll never open my own doors and seek to advance my own opportunities. You open the doors and I'll walk through them when the time comes.”

    Since then, God has magnificently empowered Rob to fulfill all these dreams, to the point of helping hundreds of thousands of people around the world, but it’s not been without much suffering. Rob says, “You don’t get to choose IF you suffer in life, you only get to choose HOW you suffer.” And the key to growing in spiritual authority and seeing a tremendous increase in God’s power is learning how to suffer wisely.

    In 2017, Kelsey was a burnt-out tech consultant who worried that God's only calling for her was to "stay, pray, and pay" for the missionaries doing the “real work” of God overseas. As her health continued to deteriorate in a high-stress job that was not aligned with her natural giftings, desperation caused her to seek the Bible for answers and pray the, "God, I'll do anything" prayer that changed her life.

    That was 6 years ago. In that time, she left her job and started work as a career coach, specialized in helping Christians discern their calling and practically land a job that's aligned with it, so they can serve with their unique giftings for the glory of God and the good of others.
