I'm not a religious person, but these are good things for anyone to read. Thanks for the post!

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

These are quotes from Stephen Hinton’s upcoming book “Stillness in the Storm: Handling Job Loss God’s Way”.

Who you are: what you are able to do and your purpose in life are not diminished because you lost a job.

Your identity, destiny and purpose come from God- not an employer, title, material goods or income.

Your value as a person and a worker does not change when you are laid off. Only the relationship with that particular employer does.

Remember that your abilities, gifts, skills and talents are meant to be given to those in need and there is someone else who needs yours.

When you were created, you were given a unique purpose and destiny. This career setback is part of your walk towards your destiny.

No person or entity can change what God has planned for your life except you.

If a company hired you before another will hire you again. The only question is when.

You will grow stronger and smarter from the lessons you have learned through this experience.

Faith and fear are chosen not given. Your choice between them determines your results in life.

Everything happens for a reason!
