Promoted And Blessed

 

I have been working for seven years now and have been through many setbacks in my career. I have experienced closed doors, and my previous employer had issues with me being a diploma holder. Hence, for the past six years, I remained as an assistant manager in the communications field.

At the start of 2016, one of my three prayer requests was to be promoted to a managerial position. In the natural, I did not know how I would be able to do so.

I took up a part-time degree course in an attempt to improve my chances for a promotion. I listened to the Word and encouraged myself with Pastor Prince’s teachings. Though I experienced so much favour in my career, my prayer for a promotion was still not answered.

During the Sunday service on 25 December 2016, Pastor Prince led us to pray over our three prayer requests for the new year ahead. I made the same prayer request to be promoted to a position of influence and even set a faith goal for my salary, which at that time, seemed ridiculous to me.

Sure enough, when God blesses, He blesses us in ways we don't even dare to hope for.

On 27 December 2016, I was suddenly called into a meeting with the General Manager and the Director of Sales.

In that informal interview, there was no strife and no need to justify my work or show proof of my work performance. It seemed as though God had opened all the doors and lined up all the important people to speak on my behalf even before I uttered a single word.

Less than five minutes into the conversation, they offered me the position of a marketing communications manager who would be leading a team of three. Not only that, I was also offered a 37 per cent pay increment even though it was an internal transfer and promotion.

Truly, God Himself fights our battles for us even when we don't see it happening. And what my human mind considered ridiculous to achieve, God made it happen. What a beautiful way it was for me to end 2016 by possessing my possessions, and stepping into 2017 with a bounce of jubilee in my steps!

Restful Placement In A New And More Suitable Role

 

I had been trusting God to deliver me from my workplace where I had endured three years in an environment that was judgemental and unforgiving.

However, the job market had been unstable for many years now. And as oil prices continued to plummet and remain in the unstable lows, working in the oil and gas industry became even more sombre.

I had anticipated being shown the door in my company where I had served for almost 14 years. But I still felt the pangs of emotion when my manager finally advised that I would be given a notice of redundancy by July 2017, if I were unable to secure another role in the company.

Strangely, the emotions did not last for long. Through daily devotions, Pastor Prince‘s sermons and even messages from my fellow sisters and brothers in Christ, Jesus continued to remind me that I can rest even in my circumstances for He holds my future. So I truly rested and was not in a hurry to look for my next permanent role in the company.

It is so true that only when we rest, God goes to work! In fact, my new job came “looking” for me in February, and within five weeks, I was offered the role by the hiring manager who was based in London and whom I had never met.

We only had one interview over the phone with the Human Resource personnel, and he called me back in the following week to offer me the role!

In addition, the new role would take me back to a business division that I had always been passionate about and had a decade worth of experience in! My new responsibilities would also be in an area that I have a good aptitude for! Truly amazing grace!

My parents, hubby and children were overjoyed with this blessing! And I am eternally grateful that I have a God who knows me inside out and always hear my cries of despair, no matter how small my problem!

I love You, Jesus!

Favour After Favour In Job Search

 

Last year, before I graduated with a diploma, my father, knowing that I planned to take up a Bachelor Degree, broke the news that he would not be able to support me in my further studies. Devastated as I was, I believed that when a window closes, my Abba Father will open doors, gates and even roofs for me.

Soon enough, I came to realise that the field I was studying in wasn’t exactly my passion. At that time, as I was finishing my studies, my lecturer emailed me about an opening for a part-time position at a media pop-up store because she knew that I loved writing. She told me it could be an interesting experience as the pop-up store had an editorial team working there. I decided to take it up and was accepted for the job.

While working at the store, I observed their daily operations and got to know the team. I was sure this was what I wanted but I told Jesus I didn’t have the courage to request for an internship because I wasn’t even studying in a related field. Miraculously, a few days after that, the team’s marketing manager came over to my desk during lunch and we had a chat. Out of nowhere, she suddenly asked me if I would be interested for an editorial internship! I was dumbfounded and amazed that God had answered my prayer, and I said yes.

After an interview and a writing test, I was accepted for the internship. What started as a three-month internship grew into eight months. I loved my job and the company, so I prayed again to Abba for a full-time position in the company. However, I had to fly home to Indonesia as my parents could not support me financially anymore. When the Editor I worked under learnt that I was leaving, she asked if I would be interested to do freelance work for them from home. Again, I was amazed that my God had blessed me with so much favour. I accepted the offer and worked from Indonesia while I spent time with my family.

After a few months, I felt an urge in my heart to stop working from home. I wanted to work in a team and learn more, as a dream to start my own company in the future was planted in my heart. So I asked the Editor-in-Chief of my company if they had a full-time position in Singapore but he said the office’s headcount was limited at that time. I still had faith that God had other plans for me.

I decided to fly back to Singapore and continue my job search here. My parents told me they could only support me financially for two months. I told them it was more than enough because I knew my God had secured the perfect position with a more-than-enough salary for me.

During my first week back in Singapore in March 2017, Pastor Edwin Lim led the Holy Communion prayer during a Sunday service I attended, and one of the first things he said was about success in a job search and a job interview! I felt God’s loving reassurance for me, and all my worries vanished immediately.

Two weeks later, my former Editor-in-Chief suddenly texted me about a job opening in one of his acquaintance’s company. He told me he was devastated that he had to refer me to a competitor because he wanted me to join his company once the headcount opened up, but he knew I needed a job. I was deeply touched and grateful that God had led him to think of me and refer me to a competitor!

I applied for the job, attended an interview and went through a few writing tests. While waiting for the outcome, I knew in my heart that I would be accepted because God had led me to this, so I prayed to Him for a salary enough to support myself independently.

A week later, my acceptance email arrived, and the salary offer way exceeded my expectations! Praise Jesus! He doesn’t bless us with “just enough” — that’s not our God in heaven, He blesses with more than enough so that we could bless others around us.

Looking back, it was favour after favour — from my lecturer to my former Editor-in-Chief. I knew I had favour with them not because of who I am or because of my abilities. It was all God. Just like Joseph in the Bible, I started with nothing but I am successful because the Lord is with me. With no qualifications, I ended up with a job that I am passionate about with substantial salary. I am expectant and look forward to the better days that are ahead of me, knowing that my Abba Father is with me every step of the way.

Thank You, Jesus! And thank you, Pastor Prince and New Creation Church!
