Financial struggles.
« on: September 16, 2011, 01:40:23 PM »
Me and my wife are financially struggling. The worst part about it is that we can't get a car because a) no credit, b)no cosigners, and c) not enough money made per month. My job pays poorly and I've applied for another one recently. Both of our cars that we currently have are constantly breaking down and need towing/repairing.

I'm at my wit's end and don't know what to do anymore.

Prayers for you. Have you looked into carpooling with coworkers or other friends/family who work in the same general location? Some people at my office do that.

May the Lord be merciful and deliver you from your current difficult situation.
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.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Lord, have mercy. Hang in there.
Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

Lord have mercy!

Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

Lord have mercy. 

I would also suggest carpooling or public transportation if it's available in your area.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Unfortunately none of them live close to me.

I know we'll eventually make it through. I just hope and pray we have enough patience and endurance. Somehow we've made it this far.
