A challenging road ahead (not about fitness)

Friday, April 05, 2013

so as some of you may all ready know, the company i work for is leaving st. louis so i will be losing my job in about a month and a half. My last day that I will be getting paid for is May 17th. Now for me to get a serverance pay out I have to stay with the company until the end, which I plan on doing. I have been filing out apps and I am registered at a employment staffing agency so as of now im doing all I can do to find another job. Well thank god my bf has a pretty descent job and he makes descent money but today he just got a email from his hr department that they are going to be taking 50 percent of his check once a month for child surpport for a year because his place of employment was not taking out enough initialy. So yea when it rains it pours!!! So thank god that he still has a job and thank god for the serverence check and unemployment but will it be enough?? I mean I guess its gonna have to be. Thank the lord again that my car is paid off and we do not have a mortgage payment, (the house we live in is paid off) but we still have other bills, eletric, gas, trash, water, his car payment, taxes for the house, gas money and food. So idk how we are gonna do it but we are going to do it. I know that through the lord that any thing is possible and i know he has a plan all ready worked out for us. I'm not going to stress over it or freak out or worry about it. I mean we both are doing all we can do with in our reach. I have faith and know that every thing will workout, i handed it over to god and now i just have to continue to have faith and press forward. Its gonna be a challenging road but i know we will get through it. Ok im off my soapbox, i got it off my chest and i feel so much better...thanks for listening

    I think the fact that you are able to communicate this difficult situation is very important. God will provide in ways that will amaze you. I would suggest that you look to your community for assistance. In our current economy community members are bonding together to help each other. Churches are one of the many agencies that are ready to respond. Our HIgher Power is your strength and of course Our Serenity Prayer will guide and strengthen you. Blessings to you! You are in my prayers! emoticon

    Aren't you thankful that you have your faith to help you during this extremely difficult time in your life? HE is there to guide you with all the decisions and steps you are taking! God will provide for you and yours, of course if you're anything like me, it's easy to get caught up in the what if's, when and why's of everyday life.. that's when we most need to keep our eyes on the Lord.... and keep on keeping on ...

    Blessings to you!!!

    Sorry all of this is happening to you right now. You seem to have faith to know that you will get through this. God is good, He will see you through this time. It may be challenging, but you will have what you need. thinking of you and hoping good news is right around the corner.

    Hello, man I totally know where you're coming from. My husband has been without work since Nov. 2012 and our first child was born Jan. 2013 and here we are April 2013 and he still doesn't have a job but it also forced to pay child support even though he's not working and it's just a mess and over whelming. I was angry with God, maybe I still am a lil but you're RIGHT, he does have a plan for us and will get us through this difficult road we're currently on. You and your bf stand strong and tall together and do what you can, God will help ends meet, just as he has with us! Stay positive, you've helped me stay positive today by writing such great things in this blog about GOD, plans, and keeping faith. HUGS!!! =)
