Can't start new job until reference check is returned by old job
« on: September 23, 2009, 07:57:17 AM »
I am very upset..I cannot be given a start date for my new wonderful job until a reference form is returned by a previous employer. This previous employer has yet to do this and I am starting to think this is payback or to use a legal term retaliation. Several therapists and myself were reporting the staff for abusing the children at this employer's facilities and the administration became very angry hence the "retaliation."
Please pray that the form is sent back promptly and I can begin my new job very soon.

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Lord, have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
