In this post, I will share a job testimony example!
My job testimony example is as follows:
In 2012, I made a bold move to pursue my dream job…and guess what? I landed it. I want to share my testimony in the hopes it will bless someone.
When I graduated from college, I started my first entry-level job. The pay wasn’t great. It wasn’t nerve-racking, and it didn’t challenge me. It wasn’t easy to imagine anything else.
Writing down the vision for the job!
At this point, I met a lady who ministered to me about the importance of writing one’s vision down. She referred to Habakuk 2:2-3 and stressed the importance of writing down my vision of my dream job.
She stressed that if I don’t know what the job looks like, how will I know once I receive it?
I started meditating on that word and prayed. Then I finally got the courage to write down my vision behind my bible.
I wrote seven things I wanted in my dream job. I was extremely specific. Here are some of the things I wrote that I wanted to highlight:
-Work from home.
-Salary (I was specific about my salary. I wrote a dollar amount).
-My manager had to be God-fearing.
When I wrote the salary down, I was in DOUBT. I thought that it was not attainable.
Looking back, I now know that was fear talking, and the devil was trying to get me to think small.
When I completed the list, I peeked and smiled every time I glanced at my vision.
Walking towards the job testimony!
One year later, I met a friend of mine, and she mentioned that a company was hiring and that I would be a good fit. I went to my computer and applied for the job as I felt, “why not?”.
Immediately the hiring manager for that company received my application; things went crazy fast. I went for an interview the next day!
Immediately after the interview, I received a call from the hiring manager, and she said they have decided to extend the offer to me. She mentioned the dollar amount, and I froze.
That was the exact figure I wrote in my vision! I was shocked. She also mentioned the flexibility and one work from home day. I was ecstatic. It was truly an out-of-body experience.
God totally answered my prayers!
When I reviewed my vision, I realized ALL, but one thing was fulfilled: I wanted my manager to be God-fearing!
It turns out I only got a God-fearing team lead. So I thought, “Team lead is close enough!” That wasn’t God’s plan, though.
He wanted to prove to me that I have to have faith and believe this concept and apply it to every aspect of my life.
So literally, one week after I started my dream job, my team lead was promoted to become a manager! (Insert screams!!!)
God’s plans are exceedingly abundant!
It’s amazing because when I started my job, I thought that would be my forever job. I always thought that NOTHING could top this.
Thankfully, God’s plans are exceedingly abundant, and above all, we could ask or imagine. (Ephesians 3:20-21).
God started revealing to me that there is more, and when it is time, he will let me know. I feel my inner man just jumping right now as I ponder…Isn’t it great that GOD challenges us? Isn’t it great that his plans are for PROSPERITY and not for harm?
Quick lessons re: my job testimony example
The following are my takeaways from my answered prayer!
– Let Go and Let GOD. I am thrilled that I surrendered totally to God.
–God’s dreams for me are BIG and perfect! Yes, I confess that my dreams have always been small, but His exceeded my expectations!
PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE, my friends!- God’s timing is perfect! The vision can take time to be fulfilled. In this case, it was one year. It was fulfilled in God’s timing. TRUST the process.
Another dream job vision…testimony awaits!
This is a picture of me making my last drive after leaving my dream job in 2019… I now realize that the job was only for a season.
I worked at my “dream” job for almost seven years! God is now asking me to take yet another leap of faith.
So I have written yet another list according to Habakkuk 2:2-3.
Honestly, the vision scares me, just like the one I wrote eight years ago…BUT I know that He did it before, and He can do it again.
I can’t wait to achieve my next dream job for my next season so that I can come here with yet another testimony!
Habakkuk 2: 2-3 And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end, it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

And that’s it folks, my JOB TESTIMONY EXAMPLE!
I hope you are encouraged to walk towards your job testimony!
