It has been awhile since I have posted what is going on with my walk with God. About 7 weeks ago, I was offered a job in the Jewelry field at Ace Jewelers in Dearborn, MI. The owner offered me $55,000.00 to start. I gave my 2 week notice at my night job, my son took over the running of my company, and I went to work. After my old job was done, I found out that the company was only paying me $30,000.00. I confronted the owner and he promised to make a decision with his brother and get back with me in a week. Eleven days later I quit them due to the owner lying to me twice. Once about the pay and then about getting back with me in a week. He knew I could not afford to drive 78 miles one way to work and back each day ($120 a week in gas) and could not afford to rent my house (on lease) and move to Dearborn. Everyone that knew the situation said the owner was taking advantage of me and using me. So....my old boss heard about it and offered me my old job back immediately!!! Praise God for taking care of me!
What good came out of all of it? Well I learned part of the jewelry field that I needed more information on. They are one of the biggest buying gold centers of Detroit. So I have taken that training and using it to grow my own business and to expand...buying gold honestly from people and helping them get the most money. So God has opened my eyes to this business!
Where is all this going? ONLY God knows!
Never in all my life had I ever heard an employer agreeing to pay an employee a wage and after getting him to leave their job to pay them less then they were originally making from their old job and almost half what was agreed on. They were nice to work for....their jewelry store is decaying and I wonder if it will survive another few years....lots of security and guns....but even in that place....I continued to witness to the staff and the customers!!! Praise God for my big mouth!!
Even though the company did me wrong....I thank God for the training and for HIS providing. May God bless them and help each one of them to walk with Him!
