I had been looking for a job since I completed full-time studies. As this was my first job hunt, I had no experience to offer and was rejected in all my job applications.
I started to struggle when I ran out of savings. I ended up applying for jobs through a social welfare platform and continued trusting God for an open door. In my prayers, I asked God to guide me to the right job and show me what I needed to do.
When it seemed like I was not getting anywhere, I started getting discouraged. However, I kept in mind what Pastor Prince taught in his Daily Grace Inspirations that Jesus had paid the price for me to have everything I need.
I also stood in faith on Matthew 19:26—with God ALL things are possible. This was one of my favorite verses and it kept coming up in my spirit whenever I needed it the most. I believe God was giving me strength in those times.
One day, I decided to ring a local bakery and inquire if it had any jobs available. The owner of the bakery asked me to meet him for an interview that afternoon. When I got off the phone, I felt this might be the job for me.
When I arrived at the bakery, I got to speak with the owner and realized that he did not pay much attention to my résumé. He said résumés were just pieces of paper and he would rather hire someone based on personality. Within five minutes, I was offered a job, and he did not mind that I had no experience! He also said he would be willing to train me and that there may be an opportunity for me to do an apprenticeship under him.
God’s grace is truly GOOD! I believe God was preparing and leading me to this job, and that this was His plan all along.
