What’s your #1 priority tomorrow?

As tomorrow is Sunday, I have decided to start my day by reading a bible quote. I have been through many struggles few years back. Struggling to get a job, financial issues, losing job opportunities and many more. But those struggles didn’t last long. Because I always believed in god, with consistent efforts and not giving up I came out from the challenged one by one, all you need is hard work and faith in god. Our prayers are always heard.

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

Isaiah 43.2

In the verse the Lord says: “Do not fear, I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine” God says not to fear! This should give you great comfort. Not only God is promising that all things are under perfect control, He has called you redeemed justified and victorious. “Whatever rough waters you find yourself wading in today, you will not be swept away.” The flames of temptation and tribulation cannot consume you. No hurdle, no challenge, no obstacle, is too powerful for you because you are already His. So fear not, Child of God. He is with you. Trust what he has promised you.

When I was struggling to get a job in my home country, I took a risk of moving to middle east on a visit visa to look for an opportunity. As the visa had a duration of 90 days. All I had to do try my best to apply on all Job search platforms. I used to keep applying 10-15 applications and consistently updating my CV.

During this period apart from genuine jobs, I came across lots of scams where they hire you till the duration of your visit visa and terminating you in the end. But you get the red flags by researching about these fraud job listings. I didn’t got a single response in 2 months of continuous job search. But I didn’t lose hope. I was consistent on searching for a job.

Finally after 2 months, I got an opportunity for an interview and I got selected in reputed company in Dubai. I learnt that consistent efforts and hard work always pays off. Lets not forget that I was praying everyday.

Today it’s been a year I am working, it’s been difficult to maintain the consistency in giving time to god. But, I always thank him for removing me from the struggles. We should remember him not only during bad times but also during good. Therefore I have decided to start everyday bible reading.
