Testimony Tuesday: How I Landed A Job

Inspiration, Lifestyle

If you grew up in church like I did, then you’ve heard a fair share of testimonies throughout your lifetime. It’s common to hear people jump up and thank God for simply bringing them through another week and providing food on their tables. But you know what really gets me? The instances where God really moves on someone’s behalf and takes them from a place of darkness to light.

Over the last few months, I’ve been going through a rough period in my life where I had to prove God for myself. I could no longer depend solely on the prayers of my Parents or loved ones, but in order for my situation to change–I had to change. Something had to be different and I knew my answer was locked up inside unwavering faith.

As I shared a few posts back, I’ve been on theΒ job huntΒ for much longer than I expected to be. I began feeling extremely low and beating myself down day after day to the point where I truly believed I was worthless. I was receiving rejection after rejection and I felt like there was never going to be a change. However, a good friend of my Mother came to me towards the end of August and gave me some clear instructions on what to do:

She told me t go to church the following morning which would be a Sunday and sew a special seed that would lead to the right job. She told me to pray over the seed and simply watch God work on my behalf believing and confessing that my job was on the way. At the time, I was trying almost everything–not realizing that I had left God out of the equation. Without hesitation, I took all the money I had in my purse(which wasn’t much) and I sewed the seed. I prayed during the service and I went home and prayed again. Now here’s the crazy part–Would you believe me if I told you that by the NEXT DAY, I received at least 5 calls to come in for interviews?? Well, that’s exactly what happened! Everyday for at least 2 weeks I was doing interview after interview, twice in a day even. It was unbelievable, but undeniably the power of God.

I remember being so overwhelmed at the time because it was literally an ongoing process–exciting, but exhausting. I had no doubt in my mind that I’d be working by mid September. However, God had other plans. After doing so many interviews, I wasn’t getting through with what I really wanted. And while I did get a few offers, I made the choice to decline them knowing that it wasn’t the right fit. On the other hand, the positions that I did want never came through. This is when everything started going downhill and I began to doubt everything and everyone in my life.

I came to a point where I recognized that my job was never going to be at the other end of my negative attitude. Something had to change.Β I sewed another special seed a few weeks after thanking God for the job that I believed was on the way. I also started letting go of the voices in my head that told me to give up and throw in the towel. I started walking in faith and expecting something great to come out of all my disappointment.

Well, I guess it paid off because last Thursday I received a call from the same agency that the last job I was scheduled to start fell through. They were offering me another new and even better position! It was so unexpected and it couldn’t have come at a better time. They actually wanted to fill the position immediately so I went in the next day to start! However, I officially started on Monday. I cannot begin to describe how happy I am and I owe it all to God. I finally gave him full reigns over the situation and he granted me the desires of my heart. I’m currently sitting in my very own office on the 7th floor of a ridiculously gorgeous building in downtown Miami and I’m loving every minute of it.

I was reminded by the speaker on Sunday Morning that it’s not merely enough to simply believe that God can, but that he WILL. She spoke about divine expectation and how crucial it is to walk in faith–always expecting greatness. I can now truly say that I have proven that to be true. God is crazy faithful. Once we turn it all over to him, we will experience an abundance of blessings. πŸ™‚

 

Have any similar experiences? I’d love to hear about it!

Until Next Time…
