Job Let-Go
« on: August 12, 2013, 11:17:21 PM »
This afternoon I was let go from my job position. Please pray as I search for a new one and for faith to get through this unemployment period.

Side note: I am afraid of how I am going to pay for bills, I do not qualify for Unemployment Insurance.

Lord have mercy!
"I, Lucian, wrote this, I who am skilled in what is old and foolish; For what men think wise is foolish. So then nothing that the mind of man can conceive is certain; What you admire, seems ridiculous to others." - St. Lucian of Antioch

Times are difficult but do not despair...believe and pray...I am not just saying this but have witnessed how things can change rather quickly. Think of this as a chance for something new. May Lord help you dear brother.

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.

May The Lord be merciful towards you and aid you in quickly finding new employment - even better than the last!
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

I'm very sorry to hear that (and I hate terms like 'let go', unless one really wanted out and was kept hostage). I will keep you in my prayers. Keep reminding yourself that God won't abandon you in your hour of need.

And good luck.  I've been there myself several times.

Are you sure?  I supposedly wasn't, but I filled the form out, and lo and behold!  (we're in the same state).
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

It may be worth a shot, anyway. Also, if your state is like Georgia, they have a wealth of resources for jobseekers, even if you're not eligible.

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
