My husband has gone through a wilderness experience in the area of employment. After losing his job, a church contact gave him some casual work but this work dried up after a few months. Then came a long period of searching and seeking and asking God for direction and for him to open the right door. It seemed that despite knocking and applying for jobs that no doors would open. So my husband decided to take on some part-time Bible study courses. This was a great experience for him but in terms of employment he had no clarity or direction. Over the next 2 years, he continued with the part time studies and also did some voluntary work with a local charity.

We decided to seek God over the situation with greater intensity. We decided to undertake a dedicated 21 days of prayer and fasting. We were amazed how much God spoke to us, encouraged us and built up our faith over that time. It was also a time when God was dealing with negative emotions of regret, disappointment, worry and confusion and replacing them with faith, hope & trust.

Shortly after the fast, my husband contacted several employers. As a result he was able to secure an interview with a business that he strongly desired to work for. At the end of the interview he was offered the role & accepted!! We were so blown away that God had answered our prayers!! Not only did God provide a job but he opened the door into an industry which my husband has always desired to work!
