About two years ago, I started believing God for a promotion. In April of the following year I was given the opportunity to go to another office for one month. I was required to hold on for a colleague who was on sick leave. While there, I prayed that I would get an opportunity to provide relief on the higher position. It was even my desire to be promoted in that office. God however had bigger plans!
In November, I was told that I had an interview for a position in Port of Spain (I live in San Fernando). While I was thankful for the opportunity, I knew that I preferred being promoted at the East office.
When I arrived for the interview on the morning, I was told by a friend who is based in the Port of Spain office that she was also being interviewed for the position. My immediate thought was, “Lord, why did you make me come all this way when that job is hers?” I interviewed anyway.
About two weeks later, I was told that I was successful at the interview. Again I asked, “Lord, why don’t you send me to the East and send the person in East to Port of Spain?” I left that thought there!
As people found out I was being transferred to Port of Spain, they told me how difficult the manager was to work with. The more I heard the negatives, the more my anxiety grew! I confessed daily…be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known to God!
I then prayed for a healthy work relationship with my new boss!
And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. James 5:15
On my way to the new job in Port of Spain, I was chatting with Jesus and thanking Him for His favor upon my life, yet still hoping in my heart that I would be soon transferred. While in communion with Jesus I felt an immense and overwhelming peace that filled my soul…I became emotional but continued praying. My prayer was, “Father I’ll be in a new environment from today. I pray that You will guide me and help me to be as loving as You and as patient as Christ. May I always be grounded and rooted in Christ.”
Since I’ve been at my new position, I have no doubt that I will be confirmed at the end of my probation. You know what, God knows best and He always has our interest at heart. Going to Port of Spain via the water taxi is far easier than having to drive to the Trincity area.
I believe that I have an excellent work relationship with the management and staff. I continue to give all praise and glory to God. Thank you Father, Son and Holy Spirit for your continued guidance and protection!
