Lost my Job on Wednesday

Lost my Job on Wednesday

Postby Diverjon on Fri Jul 15, 2005 9:03 am

Well after 10 years working for the same company we (the IT group) were out sorced last September. On Wednesday My boss came to see me for the first time EVER and all he said was "we're down sizing you, i have to catch a plane and leave in 45 minutes can you have all of your stuff packed by then." so for the last 2 1/2 days I've been trying to get a grip and deal with this but it's tough for me, I have a really hard time trusting. trusting that God really has my best interest at heart.<br>
<br>
So, what to do? That is now the question.<br>
<br>
I have no idea....<br>
<br>
later... <p></p><i></i>

lost your job

I am sorry you lost your job however, instead of being down in the dumps and not trusting, look at the bright side of the whole thing. <br>
<br>
I know your saying what is the bright side ?<br>
<br>
10 years ago you were a different person (most likely). Now you know new things and have a different outlook in life. Sooooo, go out and look for that perfect job that can offer you new begginings and a new outlook in life. <br>
<br>
Here is some of what I have learned from having the advantage of being a stay at home mom for many years. <br>
<br>
1. Do what makes you happy in life, even if you never get paid a dime to do it.. Remember the Lord always provides. <br>
<br>
2. Remember the Lord is taking you somewhere that needs you. He knows your path and outcomes. <br>
<br>
3. Enjoy each day as a fresh start to a new beggining.<br>
<br>
You will be just fine, the Lord wants a new something for you. Be happy and be content because after all tomorrow may not be here for us to worry about . <br>
<br>
I will keep ya in prayer for the Lord to soften and uplift your burdens. <br>
<br>
BE JOYFUL IN ALL THINGS <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :banana --><img src=http://www.logodesignforum.com/forums/images/smilies/banana.gif ALT=":banana"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br>
<br>
Be happy you can start a new hum drum !! LOL <br>

Diver,<br>
I don't know you or how difficult finances will be<br>
for you right now. I am sorry you feel like a fish out of water without that steady job you've been used to for 10 years.<br>
that is understandable.<br>
The one thing I do know is that God knows all about you and your circumstances.<br>
You can trust Him!!<br>
<br>
Romans 8:28, And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. NKJV<br>
You may want to read Romans 8:18-39, might hit the spot<br>
right now considering your present circumstances.<br>
<br>
I will be praying for you, for Godly direction, and the peace that Christ has promised you that passes all understanding!!<br>
Remember, Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us!!! Romans 8:37<br>
<br>
God has plans for you, His thoughts for you are of peace not of evil, to give you a future and a hope! Jeremiah 29:11<br>
<br>
Keep us posted.<br>
God bless,<br>

I can promise you this.....if you will trust the lord.....to get you through this time in your life.....when you come out the otherside of the trial by fire....you will know exactly why He took you through it. And you will be bigger ..better...stronger for it.<br>
<br>
The Lord knows what we need and when we need it....it could very well be that the Lord knows that right now....more than ever before...you need to learn to trust Him in all things.<br>
<br>
Praise Him for whatever work it is He is doing in your life....we are to praise Him in all things....your true and heart felt praise...is like a baby step...towards the ultimate lessons in trust.<br>

<br>
And each one...gets a little easier...even if it is the hardest thing you have ever had to do.... is easier because you learned to trust the Lord in advance.<br>

I quit a job for a better one or seemed to be. That company shut down money that took me 3 years to save was gone in 2 months as i had no income. The same group that ran that company started a new one and offered me a job. I did it for a couple months but I kept feeling led to quit that job and to start my own company. I felt God was just screaming at me to do that. So I did. I've been out of work since august. I dont make ends meet. I cant find a job. My company seemed like it was getting off the ground and now has taken a turn for the worse. My house is now on the market as I feel led to sell it and move to VA. After looking into that option I relize God is taking care of me as it will save my butt and put me in a position thats better then any position I've ever been in before. So now I'm prayen my house sells. Through all this my bills have still gotten paid somehow someway the money is there. Sure I've had some help from family as well but I know plenty of families that wont help members heck I have plenty in my own family who wont help. Just a few weeks agoe my grandmother died of alzhiemers its as if things couldnt be worse. But she left me some money when she died so i guess it happened at the right time from that perspective. <br>
<br>
What I'm getting at is as bizzarre as my story sounds and how it may appear I'm selling my house cause I'm utterly screwed if i dont. I've gotten way closer to God in the last couple years. I now read my bible each day. And as scary as things are around here financially I gotta say its better then working at any of the jobs I've had. <br>
<br>
One of the biggest lessons I'e learned is. Why would you put your security in your job? As you have learned that could be snatched up in a heartbeat. Put your security in God and trust in him and him alone. The rest is just part of his program. <br>
<br>
And out of work things to do: Spring cleaning, wash your car, sleep in a little more, Laugh about your position instead of being down about it, I tell everyone who looses there job when was the last time you had an indefinate vacation sure you cant afford to do much but enjoy the down time read the bible more or pray some more Go for a walk etc... and obviously still look for a new job. <p></p><i></i>
