I’m writing this as a praise report!
For a year and a half, I’ve been praying that God opens up an opportunity for me to work close to home because my current employer is 1.5 hrs away.
One year ago, I made it to the final round of the interview process for a job close to home and was not selected for the role. At the time I was crushed that what seemed to be an answer to my prayer didn’t materialize.
Fast forward to a year later and today I was offered not one, but two jobs that are 15 minutes away from home. One of the roles pays 25% more than what I’m making now and I’ll be doing really interesting work (God is amazing!).
In retrospect, God closing the door to the first opportunity a year ago was a blessing. I realize that because of my desperation at that time, I would have taken a lower position and made less money and missed out on all of the relevant experience I gained over the last year in my current role and I’m so happy that He closed the door to that opportunity.
God’s timing is always perfect and I know that He cares for and meets all of our needs.
I share this story to encourage you to keep persisting in prayer; He has not forgotten you and loves you deeply.
