I have been out of work since July last year, but I felt it was okay as I was able to finish my Bachelor's degree at King University while I collected unemployment. That ran out in January and there are no extensions. I still felt that God was blessing me though, since I had savings after having sold my condo and I had my tax refund. My sister has really been struggling financially while trying to raise her grandsons (their mom and dad are in prison due to drugs) so I tried to help her some too. I graduated in December from King and have been sending out resumes almost daily but have only had 3 interviews in all that time. I've really tried to stay positive and I know that God's time is not my time, but I'm facing a difficult time now trying to pay my bills if I don't soon start work someplace. I'm 56 years young and have started wondering if my age has something to do with not getting noticed for jobs. I try not to be discouraged but really need prayer for a job and so I won't loose my confidence. Thank you all!!

God has blessed me with a new friend today while having lunch with her mom (my co-worker) at work. I just ask God to make our friendship stronger. I just feel this is your blessing for me. She really made me feel happy, me and her had a blast. She really made my day. Thank you!

My 8 year old Student..Came to me and told me here parents have been arguing a lot lately she hates it..because it is about her most of the time.. I asked if there was violence she said some slamming doors..and one time her Dad had her sit down to talk with force..And was yelling at here..If you new this girl there is no reason to act this way. Her name is peach I think that says it all;-) So I am scared for her safety...And if it is Gods will to have her get out of the situation.and to have her family to come to the Lord. She has started coming to church.

A dear friend is straying from the faith. Practically running. He says he doesn't care, is cashed out, he's happier back with his old life of drinking, partying, doing whatever he wants, and that he's not depressed, he's happier, and life is hell on earth anyway so live it up. He's been through a lot of hard things in his life, has ptsd, and a situation his son's mom that is very full of anger and hate between the two. I know he is saved, and I know when he's on fire and passionate, he's a force to be reckoned with and I truly believe that he is an easy target for attack becuase of not only his passion for the Gospel and people when he's growing but because of the many vices of his past that still have a grip. He's an easy target. He's tried to do the Christian life on his own, and it's failed, so he thinks it's not what it/God says He is and just ready to give up. He wants God to "show up"...but in a very big way, like, it's obvious, not the little every day things. He doesn't have accountability (right now, doesn't want it), 99% of his friends are ones that aren't good for him in trying to change plus the fact that right now, he doesn't want to. I keep asking him to check himself into Teen Challenge but he says no, he doesn't want to.He got a DWI on Sunday morning and now is facing court. I can't help but think that time in jail would be God's way of getting to him (because he already said when I picked him up that this was a speed bump, he still isn't going to change) or that the court will order treatment and he'll go to TC. His church knows, his mentor in the faith knows, and he's got people praying. I'm asking, begging, you to do the same that God will get a hold of his hard heart and break it, that he will come back to the man of God that I have seen before and know he can be, and that evil powers of this world that attack and entice him back, the strongholds, will be broken and stay that way. And that God works in all of this and restores his son and soon. But please, just pray for D that God would break, work, convict, restore, and that this situation would actually change him and the court will have God leading in the best ruling to be used in this and that the Gospel will have even greater power in His life and testimony.
