Let Go From My Job & Not Pissed About It At All

Call me crazy, but I received the BEST call I could receive today!

I'm working my last week at Schroders! Yes I've been let go. *shrugs*

There was and still is NO shock, anxiety, angst, anger at this.


I knew it was coming at some point, and I'm supposed to either have this job or God has something better for me.

So either way I WIN.

I feel fine, funnily enough I feel great, and actually excited about the future.

What am I pissed about? What, no income from this job. Well if I'm worried about that, then where is and what is the point of me having faith if I don't believe God will provide for me. Who's my ULTIMATE provider. God or Schroders? I'll still be giving my 10% of my last few pay checks and paying my bills in faith like I always do.

I am FAITHFUL. Very faithful. And with faith I have no fear or worry.

This is something my friend Hayley sent me minutes of me telling her which I'd like to share.

25"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? 26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?

28"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.
30If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Nuff said!!!


  1. Church! Tabernacle! Mosque! Temple! whatever it is preach it! Have faith...you know what I was worried today about a lot of things and reading this post has made me realise that 1.Someone out there is going through something just as bad 2. If you believe in God why do you worry?

    So thank you LDN Diva...THANK YOU

  2. You're welcome. One girl was bawling, got escorted out of the building had to pick up her shit and leave!

    How humiliating!

    Everyone feels bad but me, you should see their faces. It's like I told them I have 2 weeks to live!!

  3. Soldier's of God's Army never have to fear!!! Amen to you said girl!!

  4. I love your faith...... u just encouraged me....... God never lets his own down. He has better plans for you my dear

  5. It is evident that God felt that this job was getting in the way of something better for you. Your faith in God is inspiring. Thank you for this post!

  6. I can't even begin to explain how good I feel today. Seriously! I'm not even saying this or acting this way to save face and put on a front [no you lot know I can't act happy. I either am or I am not]

    Man the devil is so pissed today. My friend is Hallelijah'ing all over our e-mail correspondance.

    I feel lighter, like I can breathe. It seems there were 100 job losses today and I have a feeling out of all of them I am guessing I'm one of the happiest people. I never hated my job or the people here, if you check my past blogs I remained blessed, and always grateful for it, telling others to stop complaining about their jobs and be grateful. Well guess what people are still miserable about their jobs on Facebook. I never was and as of next Tuesday won't have one.

    I just started tithing 10% of it away and then I lose my job, now most people would have been mad at tithing then having no job but it's no worry to me. I said to my friend via e-mail today this was probably the best test of faith ever. I blame no one and am angry at no one.

    I KNOW and FEEL better and more is yet to come.

    Everyone got pulled into a room and announcements were made you can see the strain and worry in people's faces, and they are looking at me all sympathetic as if I just told them I have 2 months to live. I'm walking around here like I've just been told we have a new addition to the family. I'm on such a high.

  7. God is always able to take care of you. It seems that He was already preparing you for this with the extra money from the scrap gold and M.J. tickets. As the Word says, you have obviously been given a peace that surpasses all understanding by Him. I've been going through some stuff myself lately. And, it's just confirmation and a lot of encouragement to see another believer doing that faith walk.

    I think that it's no coincidence that you were met with this test after what seems to be your recent increase in blogging about the Lord. In doing so, you have been a blessing to others. Yeah, there is a devil and he is mad. It doesn't matter. As you know, the Lord has this all under control.

    May God continue to bless you.
