Miraculous Job – Miraculous JOY!
In April 2006, I was abruptly fired from a job that I loved with a major automotive corporation. I was forced to sell our 5 bedroom/3 bath home in the city and move my family to our small 1 bedroom/1 bath barn house in the country. Unemployed, depressed with our meager surroundings, and frightened for the well-being of my family, my days were filled with self-pity and resentment.
Then one afternoon in August, while “job-searching” on the computer, my sister calls to remind me to check my email for a link to that incredible movie she had seen called “The Secret”. I had been putting her off for days, so she finally made me promise to take a few minutes out of my “busy” day to review the film. The events that followed are nothing short of miraculous…
After watching the film I went outside to contemplate the message I had been so fortunate to receive. I felt so powerful and blessed to have been given this insight! Closing my eyes, I stood before God and thanked Him for everything – EVERYTHING! I felt Him say to me, “Child, what is it you want? Ask and it is yours!” Taking a pen I wrote down my IDEAL job – not what I needed, but what I wanted. I envisioned myself waking up in the morning, delighted to be going to work – what I would wear, the vehicle I would drive, the type of clients I would see, the travel involved, and yes, even the money I would make.
By mid-October, a mere 8 weeks after experiencing The Secret, I was on a plane to Florida to be interviewed for a position that could only have come from God, as it was everything I had asked for! Without “The Secret” this job would have been impossible, as my prior employer did everything she could to blackball me from the industry, including calling and emailing the President of the company when she heard I was being considered. Incredibly, this seemed to help me even more so, and they made me an offer the very next morning after my interview – a rare occurrence, I was told.
Today I enjoy the BEST job I have ever had! I have an amazing territory – all of Texas, Denver, and Seattle. I work with the most wonderful people and am privileged to serve the the largest client in my industry.
The Secret has brought me new joy in ALL areas of my life, not just this job. I feel so precious to God, like a delightfully spoiled child who gets anything she wants, just by asking. I have found that money is of no consequence, as it isn’t really the “money” I want – it’s the STUFF! Seriously, I have found that the most important things in my life are “the things you cannot see”: hope, joy, integrity, love, courage, gratitude, faith… I am so utterly happy.
Dearest Rhonda: I thank God for you each and every morning. And now, I will thank YOU for opening my eyes to such a beautiful life! I have the movie and the Book on CD that I have shared with anyone who asks. May your aspirations to change the world continue forever and grow beyond your expectations!
