Baba Gifted Me A Great Job
Anonymous Devotee from UK says: I have been living in London for a long time and wanted to share an experience when I lost my job and how Baba helped me to find a new one. Due to recession in 2012, I lost my job in an investment bank. I live alone in London and all my family are in India and the US.
I was sick for a month or so in July 2012 and although I was promised that things would be normal at work, I was made redundant during one of those headcount reduction exercises. I was utterly miserable and had lost faith in having any sort of future given my ill health and redundancy. I got calls for interviews from several firms at first but I couldn’t get the job as I was either over-qualified or that the job was a contract one as opposed to my previous job which was a permanent one for six years. In October, the severance pay came through and I found that I could live with it for a few months. That relief was short-lived as I started to realise that the job market was so bad that it might take more than a few months to get a decent job that would pay for my mortgage and bills in the future.
I tried to let out my flat and move in with some friends until I found a job but every time someone came to view my flat, it was very painful to imagine somebody else living in my flat. I never intended to live in my flat forever but I just knew that I wasn’t ready to move out yet. I decided to spend some time away from London during Christmas as there weren’t any job around that time. When I returned to London in January, things didn’t get better. I was so miserable that I thought I would go crazy if something didn’t turn up soon. I was losing hair and weight due to the stress as well. I had a great interview just before Easter in March and was hopeful of the outcome after a long time. But it didn’t work out either! During the Easter break, I applied to a job in another investment bank which was not too different from what I was doing before. Surprise, surprise, I got a call after the holidays. They set up an interview in a couple of days. I had three rounds of interviews and with each one, I felt more hopeful and started to like the job too. I got a reading from the Answer book that I would get good news on Ramanavami day. I waited to hear back on Ramanavami day and finally just before the day ended, I did get a call from HR to say that they are going to make me an offer. After almost 8-9 months, I got a job in a good bank with a pay that was a lot more than what my previous job offered was indeed a miracle. May Baba bless us all, Sai Ram
Sai Brother Senthil from USA says: I am a strong Sai devotee for the last few years and writing down the miracles that happened in my life. I owe everything to Sai. I suffered the most in my life last year (2013). Though few good events like my marriage, my parent’s visit all happened i was put to a jolt when my visa was denied. I lost my job and had to wait until 2014 for my visa to come. Each and every day i prayed Baba sincerely. Me and my wife were running into lots of financial issues and by that time my visa too was denied. Though my visa was denied i prayed to Baba with patience thinking that it was all for my good that it was not supposed to happen last year. I spend money lavishly without thinking how much a dollar means too many.
In this small time frame i have learnt enough about what life is and the value of money. We took everything step by step from then keeping Baba in my mind. My wife got a new job with a better salary and we moved to a new place. Every day when i pray an inner feeling tells me someday i will get the visa selection in lottery this year. There’s not been a single day without praying to Baba. He has never let me down. And today i got the golden words of my life that my application is selected in the visa lottery this year. All prayers to Baba. He has been with me at all tough times and taught me the best lesson. Never lose faith for He does good to all people who think good. Jai Sai
Sai Baba Listens
Anonymous Devotee from Canada says: I am a devotee of Baba since almost 14 years. I have great faith in Him that if you pray Him with utmost devotion, prayers get answered. I am a Consultant by profession. My son was struggling with swimming lessons. I had tried my best what I could do like provide him with private lessons and his regular swim classes. He always used to fail. I started feeling low as well as my son started losing interest as he was not making any progress. During that time I came across Sai Baba Vrat for 9 Thursdays. I enrolled my son on Thursday for his swim class. My whole family started praying to Baba to help him get through his difficulty. You won’t believe by Baba’s grace, i was able to complete my 9 Vrat successfully. My son also started praying to Baba to pass him. Every Thursday we used to light a Deeya for Baba, by His grace he started passing in all his tests. I don’t have words to explain how Baba has helped in difficult times. I would only like to say keep faith (Shraddha) and Saburi (patience) very strong as Baba tests to see who is His staunch devotee. Thanks Baba for Your blessings. Om Sai Ram
