Blessed With A Better Job

 

In 2014, my company changed hands and I had a new job scope which I did not enjoy. Though the new company sounded really promising, it turned out to be a great disappointment.

I realised that the job prospects shared during my interview were not realised. In summary, I had a pay cut and went through office politics that almost caused me to quit.

However, due to the slowing economy, I was unable to land a new job for two years. During this time, I worked long hours, often up to 10pm, and even worked on weekends. I had little support from my reporting officer, and was given bad reviews that resulted in me not having my desired pay increment. I also received the minimum bonus in the entire company during the first year. By the second year, I received no pay increment and no bonus. On top of that, I was given a warning letter.

I felt very mistreated and abused. At that time, I was head hunted by a manpower agency and I went for the interview although I wasn’t very keen on the job offer as it was a one–year contract.

However, the interview went well and I decided to take the risk and try it out. It has been about two months since I joined, and I enjoy my current job.

I got a four–figure pay increment and my working hours are much shorter. I also get to learn new things, and have understanding reporting officers. My colleagues are friendly and the company culture suits me. The company also works on a similar platform which made me believe that my previous job was a training ground to prepare me for this.

I wish to thank God for all that I am enjoying now. Indeed, He has compensated for what I was robbed of previously.

Possessing Family and Career Blessings

 

The year 2016 has indeed been a year where my husband and I possessed our possessions!

We had been believing God for the salvation of our parents for a number of years now. We were glad when both our mothers agreed to come to the Mid-Autumn Celebration service in September this year. My mother-in-law received Christ as her Saviour on the day itself while my mother was moved and has begun attending church.

We have also been believing God for a child for a year without success. I had been diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome in my teenage years and never had regular menstruations. This year, on my birthday, when I happened to use a pregnancy test kit, it was good news! I had done this test many times before when my period was late but it had never been positive. Praise God for a wonderful birthday gift! We are now in our second trimester and are believing God for a champion baby.

I had also been praying for a number of years for a stable job that would allow me to grow and maximise my potential. In the middle of this year, I received two excellent job offers from reputable companies, and had the luxury of choosing between them. I am now flourishing in a new workplace which happens to be pro-family, and have colleagues who care for me. All glory to Jesus!

Multiple Job Offers During Bad Times

 

After the first company restructure in 2014, I became a personal assistant to my second boss. When the company went through another restructuring in 2016, my boss resigned with a short notice. The day after she left the company, I was given one month’s termination notice and received a month’s pay as compensation. I was told I was not given three months’ compensation because it was not a retrenchment.

Since 2014, I had been searching for a new job on and off as I knew that the company was unstable. However, it was only after getting the termination notice in 2016 that I started to actively hunt for a job. While the job market seemed bleak, I remembered Pastor Prince’s teaching about keeping our eyes on Jesus instead of looking at our circumstances.

To help myself look to Jesus, I ignored all the negatives news and bad reports which the recruitment agents tried to tell me. I kept listening to worship songs and Pastor Prince’s sermons on YouTube throughout the day. I kept proclaiming that God is my provider, believing that He would get the right job for me.

During the last week of my work, I received two job offers, both of which I did not apply for. One offer was from an agency who had contacted me after searching through their old databases. I went for an interview and was offered the job on the same day. The other offer was from a company which I had attended an interview at more than a year ago. It did not work out then because I was not immediately available to start work. They contacted me when they have the same opening because I left a deep impression on them. After that, I also received a third job offer.

It is all the work of God that I did not just receive one, but three job offers within a month when the job market was considered bad. After accepting one of the job offers, I came across one of Pastor Prince’s sermons Five Words To Live By — The Battle Is The Lord’s. I know that when we turn our eyes to Jesus, Jesus is the one fighting the battle for us. It is not my battle, it is His.

What’s more, I now have a job with a higher pay of almost 18 per cent increment and better benefits. The compensation I received from my previous company became a “bonus” and “paid holiday”. Praise God! Hallelujah!
