Testimony given during Sunday Service, Sept. 15, 2013, at Hope Center.
I want to share something happened in the past 3 months of my life. I moved to Hicksville 3 months ago in order to have more spare time. The new place is about 7 minus to the place where I worked. I planned everything well. But it didn’t work out well. I lost my job one month after I moved to that new place. At the beginning, I was still proud and hardened my heart. I said to myself: “Don’t worry, you will find another better job soon as you have experience now. The one who let me go will feel the pain soon”.
After several days’ of relax, I started looking for new job. To my disappointment, I couldn’t find a job within two months. I started wondering: “Doesn’t it say ‘The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want’? How can I worry and feel that I will have difficulty to survive soon?”
At that Sunday, someone encouraged me to attend Global Leadership Summit. “As you don’t have job right now, why don’t you go for it? No more excuse from work. If you do have financial problem, I will support you.” I thought “Even that widow can give all that she had, how about me? My situation is not that bad. Let me put my whole trust in you again, LORD”. I registered at that day before registration closed and attended the Global Leadership Summit.
I think I got my answer even at the first speech. The message says “Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” During those two days, I reflected and repented. At that Friday night, I got a call from my previous boss. I shared with him something about Global Leadership Summit, and asked for his forgiveness for whatever I did before. Because this verse came to me “All who are under the yoke of slavery should consider their masters worthy of full respect, so that God’s name and our teaching may not be slandered”. We met and had conversation the next day. Then we met the point, I went back to work the next week after Global Leadership Summit.
Praise the LORD. At least I don’t need to worry about where I shall send my resume to. I give thanks to God, not for this job only. What’s more important is His teaching during my unemployment days. He is the almighty and faithful God. No matter how bad the environment is, no matter how much pain you feel, He is with you and loves you. Give all the glory to our God. Amen.
