I don't usually do what I'm going to do now. But I think I've reached the place where I need to. I try to keep most my posts upbeat and encouraging. Today I need to ask for some of that encouragement directly.
Quite a few prayer warriors visit my blog. I'd like to call on you today to pray specifically for my husband and I about our situation. I've shared some of it in pieces. Without going into boring detail, it's enough to say that we are in the middle of the unemployment in Florida and feel like we are drowning and barely keeping our feet on solid ground.
The competition to find work in Florida is awful--double digit unemployment. We've started a construction company and activated our Real Estate licenses--both of which are pretty much worthless for another few years. I apply for work for both of us every day.
We know God has a plan for us but really, it's getting harder and harder to figure it out. It's harder and harder to face each day wondering which direction to go in.
This week we have decided to ready our home to put on the market. I know it won't sell for what we need right now but we would have to do it eventually so thought we would go for it now.
What I'm asking for this Monday morning, is that you pray for a clear cut direction for our lives. That God would show us what we should do, where we should go, how we should survive and that He would give us that strength to then do it.
I know when God's people pray, He hears and I know He then moves. I just need a little help from my friends because we are getting mighty weary here alone.
Thank you for letting me interrupt my blog with this prayer need.
