Hi TabbysMom:

I am so sorry to hear about your job. I hope this testimony will help you...

My husband has been working at a job for about 3 months for a lady who owns her own social services agency. She says that she is a Christian, but her actions reflect otherwise. She has continually abused my husband through her words and actions. The last straw was her first terminating him, then stating that he could come back under a different position, cutting his hours and his pay He almost didn't go back, but he prayed and decided to humble himself and take the lesser job.

Do you know - God blessed him through a friend of his. He had consulted with a marketing agency prior to this job at the social services agency, and they needed someone to complete a project. My husband's friend suggested my husband. Not only did they hire him for the project, but they have hired him on as a full-time consultant making three times more than he was previously. Not only that, he gets to work FROM HOME, so he can continue the tutoring and volunteering that he had been doing in the community. GOD IS GOOD!!!!

Please don't give up hope - keep the faith and do exactly what you are doing - pray and ask God to point you into the direction that HE wants you to go. It may not be what you think it is, but HE knows the thoughts and plans that HE has for you - thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11)!

"With long life...YOU will satisfy me, YOU will satisfy me; with long life - I will praise you forever, only YOU can satisfy!"

-Israel and New Breed

Theresa I didn't get fired, but I did quit my job back in Massachusetts. I didn't think I just did it, that job was killing me, literally (mental problems). Guess what, God stepped in and took over. After trying to commit suicide and failing, I kneeled on the floor and said God I am not smart enough to lead my life. You know what I need, I know only what I want. Help me! God take over my life because I just can't do it anymore.

Guess what, it all happened for a reason. God brought me and my husband together, I moved here to CT, we got married and I had a great job.

Things happen for a reason. Just like now what is happening with Social Security, it is not right but it is happening for a reason. God WILL fill in the answers when the time is right! Hang in there Theresa, I am praying for you. There is power in prayers, we are all praying for you.
Love

Teresa I don't know what to say. That was cold of them and they should of given you a reason. God does close one door and He also opens another. Just trust in Him and let Him guide you. Will also be praying for you.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I am truly sorry to hear about the loss of your job. I lifted up a prayer for you to find another job. Just believe that there is something out there for you that's better than the job you lost.

May God bless you in every way!

I am a lamb of God and pretty proud of it!

I don't know what to say. I'm so lost for words.
I have been with the same company for twenty years. They told over Dec 31 I needed a vacation And please don't take this the wrong way we thing your a wonderful chef a great chef (I was the fist woman executive chef for that 5 star hotel and it remained that way for two years since I have moved to the south.)We want someone younger with new Ideas.
You can back if you want to train the new chef. I just looked at them like are asking me to train the person to take my place? My kitchen staff was holding there breath I think they were in shock we were a family. I have not gone back I will train anybody for my job I have worked so hard for.
Needless to say I broke down and cried. That is okay. God will take care of me he already has.
It was his way of saying it is time for a change of a life style. I don't know if that makes since or not. Take a deep breath look outside take a walk. Everything will come together You will see what I mean. What he is also saying to you. You also need a change What it is I don't know Only knows He will give you the answers He gave me mine.

Teresa, So sorry to hear that you have lost your job. How long had you been there? Your boss should have been the one to inform you with justification... You are in my prayers... and In your firm belief in God, you will find the perfect fit! I wish you all the best!

I am sorry to hear about your job! As I see it that was not professional at all. They are cowards! Well, you have the right idea about God, when one door closes another one opens.
It happened for a reason, I am so sure God has something special for you my friend!

Teresa, I am so sorry about you losing your job. I do not feel that they are handling this properly by not talking to you first. You should have been given a chance to make any changes that they thought were necessary. This is a very sad situation. I will pray for you. May God Bless, Linda

At 3:30 yesterday afternoon, one of the secretaries from the main office showed up at my office. She walked in and said, "I need you to give me your keys and you need to get your things and leave." When I asked why she couldn't tell me. She said I would have to call our boss today and talk to him (which is what I'm getting ready to do). She said that I just wasn't "a match", but that they would give me a good reference in helping me find another job and would continue my health benefits for a little while. I don't understand....if there was a problem they should have come and talked to me. Anyhow, I know that God has a plan and He will provide for all of my needs. I'm just a little dazed & confused right now-and a little hurt. Please pray that God would give me wisdom & guidance and show me what I should do, as I have a couple of options. Pray that He would shut every door but the right one.
Dear Heavenly Father,
"I give to You the entire responsibility of closing every road and stopping every step that is not of You. Let me hear Your voice behind me whenever I 'turn aside to the right or to the left'[Deut. 5:32]." In Jesus' name I pray...amen

In His service, Teresa
