(ANON QUESTIONS RECEIVED FROM GodfirstGodalways)
hey. I don’t know what to do right now. I’m so stressed, on finding a job. I’m anxious and so so tired.
Have you been getting enough sleep? I know it can be challenging not to worry when it’s something as concerning as not having a job. Have you ever wondered that God could very well be behind the reason you’re in this situation right now? What you can do is rediscover your purpose in God and also rediscover your passions. I believe any season we have a lot of alone and free time is a time to get to know God more. For whatever reason you’re not working right now, make sure that you’re giving more of your attention to the Lord. How’s your prayer life? Right now is a good time to grow and get to know yourself better, but first seek Him. You could really gain wisdom that could help you out in the near future. I’m praying for you! <3
Matthew 6: 25-34 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can anyone of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you-you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Philippians 4:6-7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Psalm 55:2 Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous be shaken.
