I have been stressed beyond belief these past few months. Nothing has gone the way I expected it to. I lost my job and took that as a sign to pursue a completely different career, so I did just that. I completed everything I needed to, passed my certification and proceeded to look for jobs.
If job searching could be a job then that is my new career! Jobs that require no sort of experience I was getting turned down for or the jobs that are supposed to be entry level are asking for 3 years of experience! I was beginning to feel like I played life all wrong, like if I could’ve done so many things differently! I know I was becoming no fun to be around (I do not handle stress well) and becoming more anxious and despondent. Then one day it hit me! I WAS playing this all wrong, I knew how to fix my problem but was too proud or dumb to do so. I needed to let go of all my anxiety and pain and just hand it over to God! This is one of those thing that are easier said than done.
I, like most of us, love a good rag to riches type testimony; this is not one of those! I’m still looking for work, but I am learning to wait on God and just praise him during this season of searching. I know that this will all work out for my good and the good of my family.
I saw a quote that aptly applies here; “Until God opens the next door, praise him in the hallway.” So that's what I intend to do, God deserves my praise regardless of the situation and i’m gonna give it to him. How do you all deal with stress? Have you all ever been in a situation like this? How did it turn out? Let me know in the comments!
