He knows me by name


I am Meenakshi S. This is my testimony of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
About Me…
God knew us before we were formed.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.”-Jeremiah 1:5
I was born in a middle class family. My Native is Tenkasi which is in Tirunelveli district. My father is a merchant and my mother is a home maker. I have an elder sister as well as an younger sister. We three are girls. My Father wanted us to study a lot. But he saved nothing. All his earnings were spent for our studies. Our financial status is not good. Yet he made my elder sister to study MSc IT, me to study Engineering, and my younger sister to study BSc Maths. I completed my engineering in National Engineering College, Kovilpatti through loan provided by bank. My father struggled a lot to make us comfortable. So I studied well and became the college level rank holder. It motivated me a lot to achieve more. So I put more effort to become a University Rank Holder. At that time I didn’t know that thirst had been given by my Lord Jesus. As per my wish, I became University Rank Holder. I got Chennai Anna University level 10th Rank.Praise the Lord.
My Sister’s Words…
After that I had attended TCS interview in my college. Because of the college topper I didn’t have 3 rounds, only 1 round – HR round. I prepared a lot for that. I did very well. I gave my best. But I didn’t know why I was rejected. In TOP 5 rank holders I was the one who had been eliminated in that interview. So I lost my confidence. I was vexed. Next I had attended the ZOHO interview. I had performed very well and I was selected in 3 rounds. Last HR round. They simply asked about myself, not more than a word other than my family. I was very confident that I would get that job. But don’t know why in that interview also I was rejected. Like this I had 2 more interviews with Cognizant, Verizon I failed to get in there too. I would like to mention a few things about my elder sister by whom I realized our Lord. She married a boy who is Christian. It happened as by my sister’s wish. In my Brother-in-law’s family everyone have their faith in Jesus. They used to thank Jesus for everything HE had given. Even before eating they used to have family prayer. Before going to sleep, prayer. My sister studied in Christian college. So she was very comfortable with that. Before she got married she was blessed by God. But for me it was very strange. I used to scold her for making my presence in that place. But she used to say “Because of me My God will bless my family. So you will also be blessed by my Jesus soon. Soon you will come to know who is the real God and  only He who can make marvelous things in one’s life”. I never minded her words. But she used to pray for me as “God please bless my sister. Let her know who you are..”.
Jesus called my name…
At that time I received a mail from L&T Infotech. Once I had applied for off-campus. That mail was about an interview with L&T Infotech. I didn’t show that much interest on that. But my sister asked me to have faith in Jesus this time and she said “Definitely you will not be cheated”. Jesus can only make anything happen. At that time I didn’t have that much time to prepare for interview. Because I received the mail on 3rdDecember 2013. The interview was on 6th December 2013. So I came just like that. At Vel Tech  college they had arranged for the interview. I was in a situation to pass 5 rounds of interview to get in. I was frustrated. But because of my sister I said Jesus Never Fails again and again only by my lips. At that time I didn’t think about anyone. The one and only word came from my mouth was Jesus. Out of 6500 only 72 had been selected for next round and I WAS ONE AMONG THAT. This time I didn’t prepare anything. First time I called Jesus from my mouth only. This time I started calling Him from my heart. Second, Third, Fourth rounds got completed on 6th December evening itself. Only 41 got selected for 5th Round that was the HR interview.  And they called my name while reading that selected candidates list. But I was sitting idle. The girl one who was sitting with me touched me and said “They are calling your name”. MY NAME WAS NOT CALLED BY THEM BUT BY MY JESUS, MY DADDY, MY SAVIOR, MY LORD, MY GOD… No words to explain His love.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.” -Jeremiah 29:11-12
God did that. I know I didn’t attend that interview. For me God had come from the heavens and He attended every round on behalf of me. Because I didn’t remember anything which happened inside that interview room. I can’t even recollect those moments. In that night, half of my mind was happy and half of my mind was worried about the last HR round. At that time I heard the voice of JESUS through a person who had conducted a prayer meeting in Chennai near to the place where I stayed. The words are “ I WON’T LET YOU GO DOWN. DO YOU THINK FOR THIS REASON I BROUGHT YOU UPTO THIS LEVEL?” I prayed to God and thanked him with my tears. Next day in HR interview, they simply asked about my native and my family. Out of 41, 38 were selected. After that I realized who is Jesus and I try to make many people to follow Him by telling my story and by sharing His endless love. My younger sister also turned to follow Jesus and by her two of her friends started worshiping Him.
“But as for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more “ Psalm 71:14
Amen. Love you my Daddy.
Thanks & Regards,
Meenakshi Subramanian.
