Would you guys pray for our finances. My wife and I just don't know what to do anymore and we're close to a breaking point. Just pray that God would either lead to something that will help or that some kind of financial miracle will come our way...

thanks.

So a quick update. The company that hired me in November for a part time job and then didn't have a place to assign me contacted me this week with something that fits my schedule.

So starting next week, I will work Monday thru Friday 8 - 4:30 at my full time job, then on Fridays go to my part time job and work until 9. Then on Saturdays, I will work a 12 hour shift, 9 to 9.

We're hoping that I'll only have to do this a year or less. We need to pay some stuff off before I can quit. I'm meeting with a good friend who's also a financial advisor in a couple weeks and he's going to help me with constructing a budget.

We want to be good stewards of the money God lets us use. Please pray that we do that well, and that I have strength to do two jobs for as long as I need to.

I hope ismael that your friend can help you with a constructing budget.
I admire your will to solve your stinkin' financial problems.

My encouragement for you will be

Joshua 1:9

wherever you go.

So another update. I had a company call me Tuesday for an interview. I went to my email and I applied 6 weeks ago! I had forgotten I had even applied.

Anyway, the interview was this morning and it went really well. Good company, I think I would enjoy the work, they'll help me pay to go back to school, etc. Please continue praying that God would open doors if this is where He wants me to go.

This sounds like a good opportunity, praying that it is in God's will.

Just an update for anyone who wants to know.

The company I interviewed for called me for a second interview that didn't go so well and that was the last I heard from them (this was May 3 or so).

So I started a second job shortly after that and am back to working 60 to 70 hours a week. My wife and I briefly discussed the possibility of her working, but preschool for our son is so expensive that unless she makes above a certain amount, her pay would just be going to his school and her gas to get back and forth to work.

I would appreciate continued prayers. I am so burned out and discouraged and frankly, I'm tired of this whole season in our lives. It's gone on a long time without much relief and I don't know how much more I can take.

I will continue to pray for you. Finances can really get to you when things go wrong. I've been fortunate in that regard, but I know of many who have not been so.

Still praying for you brother. Praying God gives you the strength to endure.

I remember these days. My wife and I went so far as to work different shifts (she worked a night shift and I did a day shift..because I didn't have a choice) to limit the time our children would be in preschool/daycare. That took a toll on the family/marriage as well (made us both feel like single parents much of the time).

I have an update.

MY wife has an interview tonight for a full time position that we think she would actully enjoy. Please pray about that.

I also posted a couple weeks ago about our house that no longer has a renter.. we listed that baby and it went on the market this morning! Hopefully it sells quickly.

Finally, my wife and I had a nice loooong talk about my career and where we want it to go.  The fact is that we really have no idea because I've never really pursued God about what he wants me to do.

So if all you wonderful people would pray about those 3 things, I would appreciate it.
