You never know what is inside until you open it. Life, is similar. We will never know the outcome of in life. Last week was one very eventful week. It has changed the course of my life for years to come. I am very thankful to the Almighty Father who has not forsaken me, but in every minute has me in His mind.I have got a new job.
I have been toying with the idea of starting afresh somewhere. Before I do that I would need a plan and some sort of direction of what I would want to venture to. The plan was to resign from where I am working now by the 2nd week of June.It did not matter to me if I had found a job or not, I just wanted bid farewell to advertising and move on somewhere else. The plan birth over 5 months ago. Next was to talk to people and see where would I fit in, there are countless jobs out there. Management Consulting seems like something that I am interested to venture.So I began sending out my resume to places that I would want to work in.
Months has passed since, but I have not lose sight of the day I that will pass the "love letter". Most companies have rejected my resume.I had no where to go. A couple of other advertising firms did called me.At one point I was desperate to just accept whatever they offer me, but reminded myself that I want to move out of the industry, not putting my head in once again. I continue to persevere on.
Last week out of the blue, I received an email for an interview. It was a management consulting firm. There was a list of dates and times that the company is available to interview me. By coincidence, they have a slot on the same day that I am on leave to meet a mate from Melbourne. On Monday I told my boss that I am leaving, the interview was a sign that my time is up and I will need to act on what I have planned 5 months ago. On the day itself, I got a call from that company for a second interview. I was in sheer delight, even if I did not get the offer I feel that God is telling me something. Something of utmost importance. Few days later, I received an offer letter.
I believe that these events are not by coincidence. God was with me all the way, though silent He never had forgotten about me. Everything was in His perfect timing from the time that I have decided to resign to the interview was in such excellent timing.I did not need to take leave for the interview and God knows that the 2nd week of June was coming up.All praises goes to Him.
At one point I just could not take it, but I was reminded to surrendered my all to Him as He has plans to prosper me and not to harm me.I had to faithful and persevere on and God was faithful to me.This is a reminder to me that His Grace is more than enough and He loves me unconditionally.
congratz bro!! Hope u enjoy ur new job. =D
