Last night was special to me because just two months ago I hit one of the lowest points of my life.
Broken Dreams- shattered plans and disappointment upon disappointment left me feeling helpless and almost hopeless.
If it wasn’t for my faith in God (which was being tested) I don’t know how I would have made it through.
Inside I knew that there was an eagle who was ready to fly but was caged by her present environment.
So I quit my part time job- But as my last day approached.. the consequences of what I had done and the fear of what will happen if I no longer have a regular income caught hold of me and I asked for my job back.
My managers at the time were lovely and let me pick up some shifts.
However shortly afterwards , I received another job offer working as a Teaching Assistant at a school. So I took it and quit my job again.
Two days into my new role, I was told I was no longer needed.
What next?? I panicked and asked my old workplace if it was ok if could complete my remaining shifts. In which they agreed.
All the while, I never stopped praying. It was around this time that my grandmother sat me down and said: Tell God this ‘Thank you for the job that I have, but I know that YOU can do better.’ I did exactly that.
At this point I received advice from a friend of mine who was also a Minister. I needed a sense of direction in which she gave me.
I applied for the role I’m currently in- I am working for a luxury cruiseline all glory to God and this picture was taken in front of the venue of #thebritishtravelawards
Prayer mixed with your faith really does work!
I remember just last year I used to serve food at these very venues.
Do not despise the days of humble beginnings my friend.
Not to say that I’ve made it-far from it- I’m just celebrating progress.
But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.
I’m smiling because I know that God isn’t through with me yet.
Losing that job after two days taught me that no situation is permanent and circumstances are subject to change but I serve a God that will never ever fail me!
This testimony is still pending.
This wasn’t my original plan believe me… but God started doing something when I was stepping in and out of my comfort zone.
It is sweet to trust in Jesus!
I hope that this has encouraged someone.
Ps. The book is coming, be patient with me, God’s time is the best!
