    Please keep me and my family in your prayers. I just received notice that my unemployment has ended, after only 6 months of ever receiving it. Still no job offers. God has a plan, and it is a good one. Sorry if this is in the wrong place. John

    John posted this in the devotional thread. I was concerned that some folks who just don't care for daily devotionals might miss it because they do not read that thread, so I moved it out here where it is more visible.

    Heavenly Father -
    I come before you this morning with a request.
    John is looking for work, and has not been able to find any.
    His unemployment has run out, and he needs an income to support his family.
    Lord, the Bible tells us that you own the cattle of a thousand hills.
    I ask that you would be merciful to John, and cut a couple out of the herd for his use in the short term.
    And I ask that you would open a door for him into a place where he can find a career that will meet his family's needs for the long term.
    Bless him with this, Lord -

    And I ask these things in the name of Jesus the Christ, the Alpha and the Omega.

    Amen -

    He can open doors that no man can shut. It may be in a place you least expect it. Prepare for it.

    We are in a position of trusting God to a level we have never experienced. Is it easy? No. Is it doable? we have to. If you don't pass the test, you will retake it. This is hard. We will get through it. We are certain that Father God knows what is going on. He is with us, and for us. As things develop, I will be on to let y'all know.

    Trust me IE. You don't know me, but it will get better.

    Many years ago my life crashed around me. I lost my Dad, my marriage, and my job within 3 months.

    I don't have my Dad or my marriage today, but I DO have my son.

    It's tough trying to understand when this stuff happens. Make the best of it and rest assured that yer in good hands. :)

    Prayers for you from over here, Iron Eagle. I agree with what Terry prayed and will be praying that God would take care of you as He takes care of the flowers and the birds in Matthew 6.

    hang in there, I got laid off in march of 2010 and haven't found full time work yet. the lord has blessed us with part time and temporary jobs, but unemployement ran out long ago. It sounds corny, but I trust in God and put him first every day and he provides. some days i do his work and some days I do paying jobs, but it all works out.
