Strike one and two for jobs

Saturday, June 01, 2019

I striked out twice now. I am both hurting and discouraged. I am feeling like someone punched me in the gut. I will leave it at that.

    I am reminded reading your posting, "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not" (Galatians 6:9).


    It is difficult going through seasons of testing like you are experiencing, but God has a plan especially for you and He is faithful to bring it into being!

    That's the way with job hunting. At least you had a positive interview experience to bolster your courage for the next one. Stay focused Prov. 3:5-6 as JOYBELL47 recommended. That's one of my favorite scriptures for disappointing times. HUG

    I am sorry you did not get the jobs you wanted.. I can understand how disappointed you are, I have had that happen before , and because we are human, we have all of these feelings come rushing in...

    Please remember you are in my prayers, and I know the Lord cares so much about you and understands that you are feeling bad right now.. Lean on HIm and He will help you.. I know this because I know that when I don't lean on Him, I feel worse, but He brings peace to us that no one else can …

    As we are praying for you to find a job, please know that God has a plan for your life and although we can't see it , His plans are always better than ours.. He has proved that to me so many times..

    Proverbs 3: 5-6 (NLT) " Trust in the LORD with all your heart, do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show which path to take.."

    Sending you lots of hugs, prayers , and love..

    Keep pushing, you just need one yes- all the no’s won’t matter after that. I’m a firm believer in a good mirror pep talk - as if you’re your own best friend style. Dorky but effective in emergencies !!!
