Job searching
« on: April 09, 2005, 01:51:11 AM »
Hi Everyone,

I'm currently in the process of searching for a job.

I have not had much luck. I've sent out about 6 resumes, and haven't really had anything materialize yet. I know our Father knows our needs before we ask, but your prayers are still appreciated.

God Bless,
Elizabeth

May the Lord help you and guide your career.

Lord, have mercy.

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

In my prayers
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Hi everyone.

I'm still unemployed  :(

I thank you for praying for me thus far, but your prayers are still needed.

I don't mean to sound selfish here, but being unemployed is a very uneasy feeling for me.

Thank you again.

God Bless,
Elizabeth

Elizabeth,

I have a family, and I have been where you are a few times in my life.  Be assured of my prayers!

Peace,

Seraphim

Elizabeth,

I'll be praying for you, too, as I am looking for another job--though I still have my current one available if nothing happens, so I can't completely empathize with you--and I know how difficult it is right now to make headway.

You also have a lovely name--the name of my daughter who, Lord willing, will be born in June.  May St. Elizabeth watch over and pray for you in your time of worry.

Thank you so much for your prayers! Two messages were left on my machine for me today regarding resumes I sent out! ;D I'll keep you up to date as to how they turn out.

The power of prayer amazes me everytime.

God Bless you all,
Elizabeth
