Unemployed, not uninspired

Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.
-1 Peter 5:7 (New Living Translation)

I am officially in my seventh week of unemployment. I'm not overly concerned, as I received 10 weeks worth of salary upon departure from my last company. Currently I have two different consulting firms who are willing to utilize my Accounting/Finance services for their corporate clients. Unfortunately, nothing has panned out as yet regarding assignments. I anticipate something will crop up within the next week or two, but there are certainly no guarantees.

Human nature would dictate that I should be concerned, dare I say even worried. But it's situations like this where I am really clinging to God's promises of keeping focus on Him and He'll provide our every need. Matthew 6:33 says Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

I'm to the point now where I am actually embracing the process of uncertainty. While I could still cling to the animosity I felt the final several weeks at my last job, I have chosen to focus on how faith will prevail once more.

I have yet to be disappointed whenever I've called on the assistance of my Heavenly Father.

You're taking the right approach. It's tough out there but you'll land on your feet soon. And God will provide.
