Every Ending Is A New Beginning

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)

Sometimes we can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel when we’re forced to endure things that are outside of our comfort zone, but I’m a firm believer that when God closes one door, He opens another. It may not be today, tomorrow, or the next day, but God will definitely see you through.

I remember when a friend of mine was laid off from her job. She cried for days, maybe even weeks. Not because she loved her job so much, but because for the first time in a long time she was uncertain of what her future now held. She didn’t know if she would lose her home. She was unsure whether or not she would be able to provide for her children. She hated the job with every fibre of her being. She prayed to God daily for a new job and would even ask others to pray for her as well. She had been on many job interviews, but none of them ended well. All paying about the same as her last job or less. One day she came across a job listing for a position which was “way out of her league”. According to the requirements listed in the job description, she was under qualified. She figured, since she hadn’t been blessed with any of the others, she had nothing to lose at this point. She applied, They called her a week later to extend an invitation for an interview. By the end of that interview, the interviewer basically told her that the position was hers. Provided that everything on her job application was verified to be true and pending her background check. She wasn’t worried about neither.

Here she was, stressed out because she couldn’t even get a minimum wage job, not knowing that the minimum wage job was EXACTLY what God was trying to deliver her from. God heard every one of her prayers. Yes He may have taken away her job, but He replaced it with one paying almost 3 times the amount she was used to earning and one which she loved.

If you’re faced with the heartache of losing a job, don’t lose hope. Stay prayed up and remember… ‘Every Ending Is A New Beginning’

  1. I am in the same boat, but what do you do when God answers your prayer. You are blessed with a better paying position, but its outside of your comfort zone and it feels as if you landed into a fire and not the clouds you thought you were walking into?

    • Tammy, I felt that I had to reply. Last year I lost a job that I loved and that I know God had placed me in. I never lost faith that He would place me in another position, even though I was disappointed to be leaving the job I loved. However, the position that I ended up getting–and it was very clear that it was the one God wanted me to have–was way outside of my comfort zone and was just not at all what I nor my husband had been thinking I would end up with. Anyway, after many tears and arguing with God (I lost!), I’ve now been in the new position for 6 months and I’m getting more comfortable every day. I’m even more convinced this is where He wanted me to be. Hang in there and trust. It’s not easy, I know.

  2. I am in this same situation. I have been praying to God to help me find a job that works around my kids schedule and uses my gifts and talents.
    Thank you Lord that You hear prayers and answer prayers!

  3. I guess the question is once God gives you what you asked for, did you take it? what are you going to do with it? Being out of my comfort zone really adds another level of anxiety….

  4. I lost my job yesterday and this really speaks to my spirit. I am a bit uncertain what the future may hold but I believe he will keep me in the midst of it all!! The Lord is My Shepherd and I shall not want!! AMEN!!

  5. I lost my job in December due to a merger. I thought I had a plan but God had a different one. I was needed more to help my son who tragically lost his Dad in December and then other family issues with my Dad and a sister in-law. Still do not have a job but I am not stressed out about it. I know God is in control.

  6. Amen, this is an amazing testimony and has provided me with such great hope. I’m also looking for a better job and I’m believing in God to bless with one that will be amazing and the job offer that he blesses me with is gonna knock me off of my feet.

  7. This story boost my faith even more, I have been without a job since July 2013, i’ve lost my home, my car, sold everything of value, however we have been blessed by God, he has provided us with a roof over our head, food for our noursihment and every basic need.. Not sure how I will pay our rent this month, but my faith is in the Lord, he hasn’t let me down yet, and he never will. Being unemployed has allowed me the opportunity to grow closer to God and spend time with my young son nurturing him and teaching him of God’s love, honestly I have never been so full of joy and peace. So in patience I wait for God to send us another blessing.

HE loves you dearly, if you need a hug, and, someone to talk to…..your FATHER in HEAVEN is waiting, patiently!!

  40. Strong praying women..please pray for my children and unborn baby and I. Their father is threatening to take custody of my children and once kicked out I have no stability to offer my kids because I’m a stay at home mom facing homelessness. My heart is heavy and I’m gradually losing faith. Its just one kick after another everywhere I turn. I’m exhausted and feels as if the fight is being sucked out of me.

  41. Closed door means moving to a higher level….He is God if we allow Him to be Lord over our lives, He will close all doors that needs to be closed and open a door that will take us to the next level of our destiny….If a door closes, I believe God is raising you to a higher ground…Never cry over a closed door, cry over the wrong doors that open coz of anxiety and fear of fitting in society, coz satan will always have his way in…Every ending is surely a new beginning…

  42. Yes our God has redirected me in a new direction and I am putting my faith and trust in him he has a wonderful plan for me, I may not be happy about it but I have to come to terms with it that God is in control and All is Well, Amen.

  44. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
    This scripture alone should be a guide for us all to TRUST GOD. Even when we don’t understand why. When one door closes, God sure enough opens another. And not just jobs, but relationships and everyday life.

  45. Doors have closed, slammed shut and no man can open it. Difficult at first, but now I know that the door was closed for a reason. Other unexpected, but welcome doors are opening. God is good.

  46. Amen for I’m leaving testimony of the statement when I made the decision to move on and leave my previous work,i found an even greater offer,im greatful to myself for the decision and believing in God.
