Spritual stuff, Friend's rent
« on: February 11, 2013, 04:18:41 AM »
I've been giving into temptation a bit more lately, and need to change that. I've also been reading a book on that Divine Energy: The Orthodox Path to Christian Victory, which is kind of eye opening. I am hoping this and prayer and stuff will help me get stronger in my Christian walk.

One of my friends found out that she was losing her job. Her and her husband's tax refund will help cover them for a couple of months, but that is it.  She is looking at going back to school in a medical assistant program to help her get a job, but if she could get something to tide her over for a bit, it would be a big help.

May the Lord strengthen you!

Will it be possible for your friend to collect unemployment insurance from her employer? This may be a worthwhile option for her while seeking a new job.

Either way, may the Lord provide for her!

May the Lord have mercy and help them in this 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.

Lord have mercy.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
