I promised I would testify. Read on.
One day, I got on my knees (figurativley) and prayed. I asked for a number of things and promised that if those things came through, I would testify to God’s greatness.
Last week I was on the bus to town. As I got off I noticed an African lady with braids that could only have been done in Kenya or Uganda. So I decided I would say hi. She was ahead of me.. walking really quick. I hurried, caught up and proceeded to introduce myself. Her english was broken but good enough to carry out a conversation. I asked where she was from, she said Kenya so we switched to swahili. She was on her way to work. I asked where, she told me. I asked if they were looking for people, she said yes and told me to drop of my CV. Later in the day she called me and warned me not to mention her name.
The next day I called and was told that all I had to do was go down and fill some forms. That I did. I was told they were not looking for any people but they would hold on to my CV. Saturday I got a letter inviting me to an interview. I begin work on Wednesday. A day from today.
I am 🙂 😀 God has delivered. Added to that, I got the confirmation that I can start my ka-parttiime course IN DANISH on 4th Feb.
My testimony is this: He works. He delivers. You just have to hold up your part of the deal!
3 hours later…….
ok, ok, ok! my nagging conscious won’t let me go without me saying this.
Deep breath…. my job..or rather my ka-job is a …. deep breath… BLUE COLLAR JOB! there I said it!
I am so ashamed to admit that after the euphoria of being offered the job on the spot, my spirits deflated. I was like.. ..
“ok.. so this is it God! Thank you for the job! but.. but … but…ok…. so maybe this is my period of humility and stuff… I am grateful but …. and I don’t want to be grateful with a but…. I want to be saying thank You with all the gladness in my heart”
And no.. I have not only been applying for blue collar work. My approach has been two pronged. I have sent apps for the kind of work I want and to the blue collar ones. (I am still debating on whether or not to tell my dad about my job… if you think I have hangups about blue collar work… you ain’t yet met daddy dearest!) And yes, this is a reflection of my hangups on status, education, selfworth and work.
I won’t lie.. I had to have a little one-on-one with God after I got home.
It’s now 5 hours since I got the good news and about 3hrs since I had my one-on-one with God and I am fine and VERY GRATEFUL.
I felt that I had to acknowledge all of these feelings here otherwise the post would not have been authentic… and you all know I am trying my best to be the best person I can be… that means being authentic and all.
One thing remains though…. God is Good!
