There have been a few RN jobs available, but most of them are for jobs that I am not qualified for or am unable to do. I have considered moving to find work, but my spouse and I have lived in our home for more than 30 years and he is not willing to leave our home. That is okay with me, I believe that God does not want us separated. The jobs that I have applied for that I am qualified for are not ones that I was hired for. The applications for each of them were many and although I was qualified for them, both of them were given to someone else. I am looking at other fields, other than nursing, just to have an income, but again, I have not found anything that I am able to do or that I am interested in doing. I keep looking, though, and when the right job comes up, God will let me know that and will open doors for me when I go after it. So, one day at a time. In the meantime, I have been babysitting my grandchildren and that has been a lot of fun. It's just that it is not paying my bills. :) Thanks for your comments and your prayers. Much appreciated! May God bless you for your faithfulness.
Hi Judy! I pray also that God will give you discernment. As PK quoted God's ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts. I'll be praying that He helps you to see exactly what He wants you to do. Be encouraged.

Judy, there are a couple of questions that I have about your job situation. First, are there any jobs available in your area? The reason I ask is that sometimes God shakes us up and causes us to have to go outside of our "box" at times. And if there are jobs, other than what you consider qualified for, have you applied for them? These may not pay as much as you would like, but they are a starting point.
God tells us in Zechariah to not despise small beginnings.
If there aren't any jobs available in your area, could God be suggesting a move?
We need to remember that God's ways are higher than our ways and his thoughts are higher than our thoughts.
My prayer is that God will give you discernment into His will. He does have a plan for you. Sometimes His plan is different that what we understand it to be.
Judy, I am praying that the Lord will open those windows that He sees need to be opened for you. I KNOW how hard it is to wait on His timing, but He knows that path and plan where He wants us to be. I'm praying that you can trust Him more with all things, including your weight journey. I, too, have to do that because as of late I have REALLY gotten off the path to good, healthy eating! I know we can make this to our goals, Judy. Hang in there with me.
I hate to say it but. . . we who are of the giant economy size are discriminated against. Also when you you are over 50 they think we are past our prime. I wish you were in our area (East Texas) they are begging for RN's. I will be glad to pray for you and may God bless you in ways you couldn't even imagine.

Judy, my prayers are with you. Pray you find a job and your finances will be better. Pray that God will open doors for you to get a job. Pray that somewhere someone will intervene and your finances will be a thing of the past. I understand,your going through a bad time and your mine is like a tornado. I pray God will give you strength and His peace to endure what is in your path.It will all come out in the wash. Joyce

Hi, I'm asking for prayers for a job for me. I lost my job last Oct when a 35 year old male was hired who took over my position and responsibilities (I'm 58)and when I filed a grievance, I was fired. I've been looking for another job (I'm an RN) and haven't been able to find one that fits my experience and abilities. I have expenses to meet and my unemployment has run out, so I'm hoping for something to come available soon. I know that God has a plan for me and I am trying to be patient. I love being at home, but that does not pay the bills. Also, I'm praying for healing of my aching body and my obesity. I pray that God will help me lose weight so that my mind and body will be healthy and I can live a good many years yet to enjoy my wonderful children and grandchildren. I confess that I have not treated my body very well with lack of exercise and overeating and I ask His forgiveness and healing so I can live a healthier lifestyle. I give thanks to Him for all of the blessings he has graciously bestowed on me - my wonderful husband, children, and grandchildren. My generally good health and the wonderful life He has allowed me to live. I pray for his guidance and may His will be done in Jesus Name, Amen.
