Old job stuff and prayers

I've got something going on Thursday morning that I am needing your prayers for.

Y'all have been through the old job saga and the lay off with me. Then the new job joy. But the old job saga is back.

I am scheduled for an unemployment hearing. Yes ma'am, just like a court hearing but without the attorneys and a judge. We will be sworn in by oath and the whole nine yards. And this whole thing has just really got me.

I will be having a telephone hearing with a hearing official and my old employer.

Now I have been at my new job for a while and this old job stuff is still hanging around. I know the state is swamped with unemployment at an all time high, but I really want to put all of this behind me and move on.

I have been praying and will continue to pray. I am praying for all of us involved, even my old employer. I am praying for the hearing official. I am praying for Jesus to just sit him self down in an empty chair if there is one, I will have one ready just for him. And if there's not a chair then just to sit down on the floor.

To let everyone feel his presence and make himself known to them. To give all of us the knowledge to make the decisions that need to be made.

To calm my nervousness. To hold me by his side. To give me strength and guidance.

But most of all I want His will to be done. He knows what I want. But He also knows that I truly want what He wants. He knows what I can handle and what I can't. He knows what will be best for me now and in the future. And I trust Him completely.

So if you get a chance or think about it on Thursday around 9:30AM, say a pray for me.

You know I work for attorneys and we do these all the time. You can have an attorney go with you, or you can do it alone. We usually hold them in our office over the phone. So I know exactly what you are talking about. You are entitled to your unemployment whether you have a new job or not! Right is right!

I will keep you in my prayers whenever this is reset.
