RE: financial prayers needed...

Hi Mamas,
I don't post here and read only occasionally. However, I have been convicted with the verse, http://biblebrowser.com/matthew/18-19.htm. I am a person who thinks I can handle it *on my own* and then end up lonely and overwhelmed.
Anyway....long story that I will attempt to shorten. DH moved here 2 1/2 yrs ago to marry me (I have joint custody of my teens and can't leave). He left an exlt job as a stagehand and was told he would get work here- same union, different branch. Fast forward to now, union never hired him...old boys network and all that. Any other AV jobs here are hard to get, you have to have top secret clearance which he doesn't have and it's not something you can just *get*. Anyway, he has a PT job at a deli and they can't give him more hours. He was working with my dad's landscaping company which was helping us just make it. Well, now the season is over. He is looking looking looking for anything. Nights, whatever and nothing is coming up. Me working with joint custody, 1 car, a toddler who would need child care and my non-qualifications is not an option. We live in an area where the avg income is over 100K and we are so far below the poverty level right now....anyway...DH needs a job. A real job, that pays. He doesn't mind even working 2-3 jobs, but now is only getting 20 hrs at one job and I am not sure how we are gonna make rent next month. No savings or anything, our 1 car needs $700 worth or work. I am driving it, but it has failed inspection and I am afraid of a ticket every time I go out.
Thank you so much for your prayers if you feel led.
Sorry this turned out so long

Re: financial prayers needed...

God is with you, mama. He is for you and on your side. Isaiah 41:10 says:
10 So do not fear, for I am with you;
***do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
***I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Eph 3:20 reminds us that God is able do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think. Keep PUSHing (Pray Until Something Happens) and believe that we serve a truly awesome God!

I know you said you're underqualified, but keep looking. God has, does, and will provide. I'll pray for you, too. For strength, wisdom, and faith against a world that says can't. I'll pray that God will show you the can.

Blessings,
-R
