Let go and let God – a testimony
This has really been a kind of year where God has really showed up and shown me who He truly is. This year started out with feelings of despair and hopelessness and it’s nearing to an end with feelings of hope and being overwhelmed by God’s goodness.
Hubby and I have literally fought through this year, God has sent His angels to help us fight the good fight. At the end of the day God gets all the glory for the great work He has done and the incredible breakthroughs we have had since reaching rock bottom. He took a very sad and traumatizing situation and turned it all around to shine a light, change us, humble us and use it for good.
When we were in the homeless shelter at the beginning of this year, a very dear lady told me she had a dream about me in a waitress uniform. She told me that I should not put my nose up for a small position serving others, she told me I should not be proud of my previous experience or titles and just accept the job even if it means starting right at the bottom. She said something bigger would be offered to me through that position and it wouldn’t be long.
I accepted a position as a driver, I went through all kinds of emotions feeling degraded, embarrassed etc. Friends telling me I’m better than this kind of job and worth more. I accepted the job, I enjoyed it, I gave it my all. We worked on rebuilding all we had lost and all was going well.
I am pleased to announce that after 6 months of working as a driver, the company has offered me a management role doing onboarding and recruitment. I am overwhelmed that this has happened, that her exact prophecy has come into being.
God is good, He is listening, He is working in the background and preparing a way for you. When we feel discouraged we can find comfort in the fact that He knows what He is doing. We don’t need to have it all figured out, because He already does. God is good, and He is good all the time.
I have learnt so much this year but the main theme of my year so far has been learning to let go and let God. I have not been disappointed. He has come through for us in every way and I am so grateful.
