This makes me very sad. Perhaps it's God's will that I stay at home and raise my child as my wife works? I am blessed.
But a man should work. Please pray for me.

Just know it is not you. It is happening to so many
people I know. It is the times we are living in. Thank God
for the gift of faith that we have.
I willpray for you. God Bless!
Did you hear back about your last interview? I will continue to pray for you. I know it's hard to find peace in this situation but try to abandon everything to God and have faith that He will make it better. There is a reason for everything. Maybe you are better able to explore your faith and be nearer to the heart of Jesus by being home. Let Him decide your fate. Our Father who art in Heaven hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come Thy will be done...
Love and prayers,

Simon was a reluctant carrier of the cross. He was going into Jerusalem with his two sons – in the opposite direction to Jesus who was heading out of the city. Then he was forced to help Jesus with his cross. From that moment his life was turned around, so to speak.
He was one of the first followers of Christ to understand that shouldering the yoke with Jesus was not the burden he thought it would be.
The yoke was used to harness oxen together to plough fields – a burdened shared, a load lightened.
Helping and sharing the burden of others will always lighten our own burden.
I pray today for God to reveal His will to me. That's something I am kind of afraid of since I want my own way.So while you are unemployed and hanging around waiting for a revelation from God, why not decide to go out and do some volunteer work and help someone in need?

Remember the Samaritan had to CROSS THE ROAD to help the man who lay injured. He had to change his direction, just like Simon did when he was turned around to carry Jesus’ cross. He was reluctant because his heart was set on going its his own way.
Just think, when you help share or lift the burden of another in this way, you are in fact carrying the cross for Jesus... Jesus speaks to us about this way in Scripture (Matthew 25 : 31-46) This is God’s will for all of us.
So how do I go about trying to find ways to help others?Are you kidding?

How about trying to turn your “thinking” into action.
As they were leading him away they seized on a man, Simon from Cyrene, who was coming in from the country, and made him shoulder the cross and carry it behind Jesus.... (Luke 23 : 26)
