I think by now, most of you know I have resigned from my previous job and started on the new one. What I want to say is that I find it very difficult each time I resign from my position and moving on to the next one. This not just happen this time, but to all my previous employment histories.
When I first resigned, I always have the full confidence that I can get out of my present job soon enough by each time, when it happen, I will get loads of negotiations, and also discussions with different bosses to hold on to my decision. I must be able to stand very firm and only time that the bosses decide to stop asking me to stay is when I told them I have signed the letter of offer.
I find it very hard to say no to the present employer, and things get very draggy each time it happen. Each time I have to brave myself to make sure I will be able to get out of it with minimum hassle. What worse this time, I feel in love with my job and of course with my working colleagues but very unfortunate, I have so much financial commitment that I need to go forward instead of just feeling 'in love'.
In addition, since I have took my faith in Christianity, I prayed for the wisdom to ensure I made the correct decision. And of a sudden, I came upon these verses:-
4Now when He was through speaking, He said unto Simon, "Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draft."
5And Simon answering said unto Him, "Master, we have toiled all the night and have taken nothing. Nevertheless, at Thy word I will let down the net."
I finally understand that I should be able to come to terms since the new offer does not come with loads of resume sending but through good recommendation and also my 3 interviews were all smooth sailed. The above words speaks clearly into me, and finally I took up the opportunity and I believe,
LUKE 5: 6-11
6And when they had done this, they enclosed a great multitude of fishes, and their net began to break.
7And they beckoned unto their partners, who were in the other boat, that they should come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink.
8When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, "Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord."
9For he was astonished, and all those who were with him, at the draft of the fishes which they had taken;
10and so also were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, "Fear not. From henceforth thou shalt catch men."
11And when they had brought their boats to land, they forsook all and followed Him.
So, do you find it difficult to resign when you had a better offer?
