As Gabriel mentioned in the comments of your question, first check that you can access http://your.static.ip.addr .
If you can reach your website directly via the IP then I would suggest that you follow the steps in the following documentation carefully using AWS Route53 (DNS Server - the console for the 4 DNS Name Servers you mention in your question).
Thanks for the responses. Yes could see the wordpress site when navigating directly to the IP. After much thought, we decided to keep the domain hosted with godaddy because we believe it has something to do with their website builder software. For some reason it just doesn't appear even though we checked and triple checked everything. We'll keep our subdomain on AWS. Thus far no issues with that strategy.
You don’t specify if you built a website on lightsail nor what the static IP is for? Where did you point your domain too?
Sounds like you just pointed your domain to your lightsail instance which of course you’ll see a Wordpress welcome page unless you built a website on it. It will not move or show the go daddy website.
A website will not automaticlly transfer hosting providers. You have to get the website files, configuration etc from A to B.. This is in no way automated by just changing name servers.
