Please pray that I find work soon
« on: April 17, 2010, 12:58:59 AM »
Please pray that I will be successful in finding a job.  I've been trying for so long now and nobody seems to want to hire me.  I've really hit a rut in my life now and only faith and prayer can help me steer through it.  I'm just hoping and praying for a break with this, even though things sometimes seem to be going more against then for me at times.
Men may dislike truth, men may find truth offensive and inconvenient, men may persecute the truth, subvert it, try by law to suppress it. But to maintain that men have the final power over truth is blasphemy, and the last delusion. Truth lives forever, men do not.

Lord, have mercy!

 FWIW, all indices point to an economic turn around sometime in the second to third quarter (We're about to enter the second corner in May!)  Hang in there, friend!  :)

Lord, have mercy on Robb.  Please give him a job, soon.  In the meantime, please help him to grow closer to you and increase his faith.  Blessed Xenia of St. Petersburg, please pray for him in finding a job.  (St. Xenia is quick to help!)

Thank you all for you're prayers and thoughtful words.

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

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.
