My job, Cleaning


I have been working as cleaner for 8months now.
Frankly It is not a big job.
For one week, I am working for 3 hours.

When I started cleaning, I cried few times because; I could not understand why I am cleaning in England. Before coming to England, I never thought about cleaning for me to get some money.

But, God wanted touch and change me through these cleaning jobs.

First, I put my self-esteem before God. I realized how much I was arrogant before people and God through my previous job. If my environments or circumstances change, I am nothing in this world.

My previous job was God’s gift.

I had to learn that my job and my ethnic do not make my real identity. God wanted correct my old identity into ‘New Identity’; God’s daughter.

When, I think about Joseph. He enjoyed having a lot of love from Jacob, wore best dresses among the siblings. He was just like a prince. But, He became a slave and a prisoner suddenly. He adopted his circumstances very quickly because; he knew very correctly who he was before God. The real Identity which God gives us is not changes by our circumstances.

It has taken time for me to understand God’s will and plan to set up real identity in my heart deeply.

Second, I am still learning humility from my job, cleaning.

Especially, when I clean toilet, I learn humility more ;)

After putting my self-esteem down, the cleaning job becomes blessings to me.
My customers are Sue Gledhill, Her friends Nelson and a Korean lady who lives in Fox hill.

I like chatting with Sue and Korean lady Hea-sun. They are spiritual ladies and encourage me so much every time. Hea –sun has a pain on her shoulder. So she cannot do vacuuming and ironing.

Really, I like helping them.

I want to talk about Sue’s friends Nelson. When Sue introduced me her, she told me Nelson is not easy lady and can not walk very well. She lives in first floor flat. So, she can not go out without help. She is spending all day in her flat. Only, Sue, her hairdresser and I visited her regularly. Now, she has more visitors; NHS staffs and delivers of meal on the Wheel. She is not a quiet Christian.

Last Thursday, I had talk with her about her pain, suffering and life. Suddenly, she tore down.
We shared our lives, sufferings and loneliness. I shared God’s love and Jesus with her.
We prayed together and hugged each other. It was really quality time with her.

I realized how much God bless my work.

My job, cleaning is another God’s gift.


With what shall I come before the LORD and bow down before the exalted God? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old?
Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousand rivers of oil? Shall I offer my first-born for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you?
; To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

Micah 6: 6~8
