  1. Hi Taylor. I will pray for you and I am thinking of you. Your story really touched me. I am experiencing difficult times with my career as well feeling like the rug has been pulled out from under me. Your story I can certainly identify with! I am 33 but am still experiencing similar troubles as you are. I too am feeling tired and lacking in hope. I will be sure to keep you in my prayers as I give my concerns over to the Lord for I too am weary and in need of help. Keep your chin up. If you believe and hold on to any small amount of faith you have left God will not let either of us fall. That is his promise to us.

  2. Taylor,

    Take courage, beloved for God has not forgotten about you. Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you?
    I know first hand how devastating loosing everything can be. I recently lost my husband to incarceration and I have 3 young children that I am raising and caring for on my own. I have no degree and no real work experience because I was a stay at home mom before my husband was incarcerated. It is so easy sometimes to fill my heart with thoughts of regret. For all the mistakes I made and all the time I could have done this or that. But the Word of God has sustained me. And it will sustain you, too, if you allow it.
    Have faith in God. He can change your circumstances over night if He so pleases. Until then… don’t lose heart. He’s already given us everything we need to walk in victory.
    Praying for you.
    ~Be blessed

  3. I’m 51 years old and single without kids. I was laid off from a job I loved in 2010 after being there 25 years. I’ve had 11 jobs since I was laid off. 2 jobs I really enjoyed but left for what I thought were better opportunities but they weren’t, I was miserable. I was just recently let go from my 11th job. I have no savings and I’m feeling hopeless and feeling suicidal. I don’t have a college degree and the field I have most experience in there is not a great demand for it. I wake up everyday not knowing what to do with myself due to the hopelessness. I don’t know what to do. I’ve made so many mistakes professionally and financially. I used to be so Faithful bur now I feel like I’ve lost all my Faith. Please help me with my life, I’m drowning in despair.
