So many people are enslaved to their jobs. They have no life but don’t know what to do. No time even to look for another job; if there are any available jobs! Some brave people decide to give it up for God. It’s a test of faith: is God going to find them another job? Will they be unemployed forever?!
Just wanted to share with you what this young lady did bravely. She has a very good position in a consulting company …I will have you hear the story from her. May be this will encourage you to do it. if you have a similar experience please feel free to post it as a comment.
“I had been struggling with the idea of leaving my job for the past 3 years. The main problems I had with my job were the long hours and travel. After I began serving as a Sunday School teacher, the problems I had with my job intensified because I couldn’t give to the service the way God wanted me to. One evening, during my weekly Servant’s meeting, I confessed to my fellow servants that it was a huge challenge for me to adequately give to the service due to my job. At the same exact time, two servants said “Just Quit”. For the next week, all I kept hearing in my head was “Just Quit” and it was becoming more and more clear that this was from God. Without thinking about the outcome, I contacted my Partner and met with him right away. I walked into my Partner’s office and said, “I am here to formally resign”. I had no back-up plan, but I had a peace within me that I knew was from Heaven. My Partner asked me why I wanted to leave and I told him that my job was getting in the way of me being able to serve my God. To my surprise, he told me that he would find a position within my firm that would provide me with a 40 hour work week and no travel. He also told me that if the new position didn’t work out, he would personally help me find another position within or outside of my firm. The last thing he said to me was, “I wish there were more people at this firm with your values”. It was then that I knew this was from God.” –G. O.
