South Africa is reeling as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, but also the devastating economic effects of the nationwide lockdown.
Record job losses have been reported and many South Africans are grateful to have a stable job during these challenging times.
All of this highlights the power of a young woman's testimony via Twitter on Wednesday, in which she detailed her struggles to find employment.
Twitter user Ms. Makaula (@_Didintle_m) explained that she battled and was unemployed for years. She shared the below message in her inspirational tweet:
"After years of struggling to secure employment,God reminded me today that even in the midst of a storm, He is still faithful.
"I GOT THE JOB."
Her tweet can be viewed below.

"We congratulate you my sister. God always provides the way and can open closed doors. Believe I know."
Siseko_mnyanda (@Shigo_Deep) added,
"Give it your all sis'wam... Enjoy every moment and don't forget God opened the door for you and left it shut for others for a reason."
Ethel Mogudi (@ethel1earth) responded,
"Congratulations dear. When your friends are getting blessings from above, be happy for them. It means God is in the neighbourhood and you are next."
Previously, Briefly.co.za reported that South Africa's unemployment rate has reached its worst level in 10 years and this is likely the most devastating effect of the coronavirus lockdown, aside from the fatalities.
The unemployment rate has increased to 30.1%, meaning one third of all able workers in SA are without jobs.
Some people may be surprised to learn that the formal sector has reported more job losses than the informal sector.
